Combat cage fighting is a safe, regulated, competitive sport that involves a combination of martial arts techniques within the restrictions of a confined space. The first-of-its-kind event in India intertwines a show of the complexity of technical self-defence skills with the pulsating vibe of a nightclub experience.
This time, 24 fighters will take to the ring in 12 high energy bouts across both nights. Beginning at 6.00 p.m., the nights will feature some of the best music and entertainment of the season, with renowned DJs spinning unforgettable sets between bouts in the high-voltage ambience. The fabulous Barney Bowe returns as the MC and presenter for the evening, keeping spirits high and the atmosphere engaging.
