NAFC "WARRIORS" MMA CAGE FIGHTING RETURNS TO MILWAUKEE SATURDAY, JULY 28TH

MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fighting fans from around the Midwest will be converging on Southeastern Wisconsin Saturday, July 28th, to watch their favorite sport in one of the most unique venues anywhere - Milwaukee Harley-Davidson's Dealership Showroom!

Located at 11310 West Silver Spring Road, Milwaukee Harley-Davidson, along with CONCEDE, Combat Corner Fight Shop and Showtime Sports Bar & Grill, will present NAFC "WARRIORS" cage fighting, showcasing the area's best up-and-coming MMA cage fighting talent!

Doors open 5:00 pm with an undercard featuring Pankration (featured in the original Greek Olympics) bouts. The main MMA fightcard starts at 7:00 pm.

Over 15 exciting, action packed bouts featuring MMA's stars of tomorrow are planned, including fighters from Wisconsin's top MMA academy's.

You'll see MMA bout after MMA bout coming at you at breakneck speed. If you like your entertainment fast, furious and in your face, then you'll love NAFC "Warriors" Saturday night, July 28th inside an actual Harley-Davidson dealership.

If you're new to the sport or a lifelong fan, you owe it to yourself to check out "Warriors," produced by NAFC, winner of WI Combat Sports 2011 MMA "Fight Card of the Year," for it's show "Mayhem" last May at Milwaukee's Potawatomi Bingo Casino.

NAFC is operated by famed MMA Trainer and Martial Arts icon Duke Roufus and his business partner Scott Joffe. Both were instrumental in getting Mixed Martial Arts regulated in Wisconsin in 2010, and since then led the effort to effectively kill a proposed bill that would have allowed towns to selectively ban MMA in their communities, thus creating a situation where underground, non-regulated events could take place.

The duo operate one of the Top 5 MMA training facilities in the world, Milwaukee's Roufusport Academy (roufusport.com), which is home to UFC stars Erik "New Breed" Koch, who fights Jose Aldo for the UFC World Featerweight Championship July 21st in Calgary, top contenders Anthony "Showtime" Pettis and Alan "The Talent" Belcher, Pascal "Panzer" Krauss, Chico "King" Camus and U.S. Olympian and Bellator Fighting Championship's Welterweight World Champion Ben "Funky" Askren.

Afterward, the fun continues at Showtime Sports Bar & Grill for the official NAFC "WFC" Post Fight Party! Come meet and mingle with the stars on the evening's show while enjoying a variety of tasty options from Showtime's late night menu.

Excellent reserved seats are available ($60 VIP Cageside, $40 Balcony Mezzanine & $30 Floor Reserved). Order your tickets on-line and pick them up at our convenient Will Call anytime after 5 pm Saturday, July 28th. 

Tickets will be available at the door. All seats reserved

@tosajim can't tell if you're being sarcastic or you're just uninformed. look up the stats. worst thing you can do to your body is play in the nfl. mma doesn't even come close.

Even more immoral than boxing. What kind of people are we to watch men beat each other...and enjoy watching? Very sad.
