A new Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) promotion, Shinobi MMA, will be taking their first step onto the UK’s regional scene with an aim to develop amateur MMA fighters. With the sport becoming increasingly popular, it’s great to hear of an emerging promotion that wants to help build fighting talent and potential prospects from the ground up.
In a recent press release Shinobi MMA outlined their intent on becoming the best amateur MMA promotion in the UK. Rather then aimlessly throwing together an event without putting much thought into it, these guys sound like they really want to showcase some of the best talent the UK has to offer.
Here is what Shinobi MMA’s managing director Ian Munzberger had to say:
“We are here to host events that you really won’t want to miss. Events that will make you want to come back for more. We are fight fans first and foremost. We are passionate about MMA and in particular UKMMA. We have some of the best prospects in the world. How could we not get excited about showcasing them.”
Located in Deeside, North Wales, Shinobi MMA will be holding their debut event at Deeside Leisure Centre on Saturday, November 23rd. With fighter bonus money up for grabs, which is very rare in MMA, and the promise of a “no expense spared production” it sounds like the Shinobi MMA Fighting Championships is preparing to make an impact on the UK scene.
Here is a list of the bonus money on offer: The winning fighter from each bout will receive £100, Submission of the Night wins £250, Knockout of the Night wins £250 and Fight of the Night wins £500.
Tickets for the debut show entitled “Shinobi War” are now on sale starting at £25. If you are interested in purchasing a ticket please call Deeside Leisure Centre directly on: 0845 603 2121 OR visit: www.corefitnesscentre.com & www.hffsolutions.co.uk for more info.
The promotion have confirmed via official press release that details of the fight card will be announced soon.
