Top-Notch Events Highlighting Leading Athletes Taking Place Around The Country
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 7, 2017-- Alliance MMA, Inc. ("Alliance MMA" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:AMMA), a mixed martial arts (MMA) organization that promotes live professional MMA events in numerous major markets across the country, is promoting 5 upcoming fights across the country for the remainder of February, including HFC 32, IT Fight Series 71, Fight Time 35, COGA Supreme Showdown 2 and CFFC 63.
“February is already starting off to be a powerhouse month. At V3Fights 57 on February 4th, we saw Grady Hurley defeat Ben Brewer in the 185 lb. title fight via RNC in round #2,” said Robert Haydak, President of Alliance MMA. “The remaining events this month continue to not only showcase the very best athletes, but they are also the beginning of us delivering on our promise to produce 125 events by the end of the year.”
Dominick Reyes vs. Marcus Govan at HFC 32, February 11 in Indiana
The Co-Main Event at HFC 32 will feature Dominick “The Devastator” Reyes versus Marcus “Gorilla” Govan for the Hoosier Fight Club light heavyweight title. Both men have undefeated records in their amateur and professional careers, but only one man can go home unbeaten on February 11th at the Blue Chip Casino, Hotel and Spa located in Michigan City, IN.
Kenny Locsei vs. Damonte Robinson at Iron Tiger Fight Series 71, February 11 in Ohio
Two hot prospects, Midwest featherweights will headline the Main Event at IT Fight Series 71. Kenny Locsei will fight late replacement Damonte Robinson on February 11th in Bellefontaine, Ohio. A win for Locsei would make him the unquestioned best featherweight in the Midwest regional rankings. However, Robinson plans on making that title his own.
Vagner Rocha vs. Yoislandy Izquierdo at Fight Time 35, February 17 in Florida
The first Fight Time Promotions event under the Alliance MMA banner features two UFC veterans fighting for a shot at the lightweight title. At Fight Time 35 at James L. Knight Center in Miami, Brazil’s Vagner Rocha will take on Cuba’s Yoislandy Izquierdo in a battle of the two premier lightweights in the Florida region.
Thomas Hoeper vs. Jordan Currie at Combat Games MMA Supreme Showdown 2, February 17 in Washington
Top level talent from across the west coast will battle it out in the COGA cage on February 17th at the Tulalip Resort Casino for Supreme Showdown 2. Fans will have the opportunity to meet special guest the “Dragon” Lyoto Machida.
Jared Gordon vs. Bill Algeo at CFFC 63, February 18 in New Jersey
CFFC featherweight champion Jared “Flash” Gordon is set to face Bill “Señor Perfecto” Algeo at CFFC 63 on February 18th at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, NJ. Gordon will be making his first title defense. Algeo feels he is the rightful owner of the CFFC 145lb, a missed opportunity at CFFC 57. Now, Algeo has a second chance at glory in his fight versus Gordon.
