The last time UMF & DL MMA entered Grand Arena GrandWest was to celebrate the finale fight of Mnet Action's reality hit series Way of The Warrior, where the winner of the fight was anointed the title of being the ultimate African warrior. Now, UMF Muaythai & DL MMA Fight Night will take on a whole new meaning on 10th March 2012 as the Dragons raise the bar and continue to go down in history by stepping back into the 5000 seat arena stand face-to-face with international competitors and the International WMC 'MAD' title belt - only this time with more experience, more power, and a whole lot of heart.
Being the first tournament of the year and held in one of the most grandeur venues in the heart of Africa, Cape Town residents will have their fight cards filled as this world-class combat is destined to set the tone for the rest of the year. Fresh out of Asia after 2011's IFMA World Muaythai Championship in Uzbekistan, Jarred Rothwell will face Thailand for the main event in a 5 round bout for the International WMC 'Muaythai Against Drugs' (MAD) title belt. Mkhululi 'MP3' Mlanjeni, from the 'Muaythai Against Drugs' development program for the underprivileged children, will compete for the number one spot as he continues towards his goal of entering his second IFMA World Muaythai Championships (this time in Russia in late September this year) . His fighting journey thus far has been documented and compiled into a TV documentary soon to be released.
Also included in the night will be SA's top Pro MMA fights which are guaranteed to provide entertainment for everyone!
Doors open 6pm for 7pm sharp.
Ticket prices: R250pp Ring side
R120pp Standard retractable seats
