Well I said I wasn't going to do another show this year but was offered the chance to put on a Charity event at a new venue in my hometown of Salford.
This will be Salford's 1st ever MMA event and should do a lot to raise the profile of MMA in my city whilst raising money for a good cause. JST who sponsor some of my fighters and Salford Reds Rugby are sponsoring the event at the Salford Reds home, The Willows; which has already hosted many successful boxing events.
The event will be a tabled event with 3 course meals available so a different format to the past Ikon events. The venue holds about 800 though so still a decent size. Same format as the other events with ISKA MMA sanctioning the event.
Please get in touch if you want to get involved.
