Aggression MMA Announces Plans For Show In Vernon
According to their official site, Alberta-based Aggression MMA is planning to make their British Columbia debut in Vernon this summer. Furthermore, they have confirmed today with this site that the new official date for that show is May 21st, 2010.
This is great news for Okanagan MMA fans since Aggression's first two shows in Edmonton, dating back to October 2009, were smashing successes that featured huge names in the Canadian and international MMA scene like Matt Horwich (24-13-1), Nick Denis (9-2), Claude Patrick (11-1), Jason Day (18-9), and Jesse Taylor (14-5). If their upcoming show in Vernon offers a similar level of competition, it would easily become the most talent-rich card ever assembled in the B.C. interior.
Earlier today, the following quote was offered to the inimitable David Stanford of MMACanada.net by Aggression MMA President Moin Moizra:
"Aggression is very pleased to be expanding into new and exciting markets. Ourbusiness model dictated that Aggression become a domestic promotion rather than linger in one market. Edmonton is our base and our home, however we saw an opportunity that we couldn't refuse and jumped at the chance to hold a show in Vernon. We will be back in Edmonton July 9 and October 1 and we hope to keep bringing great quality fights to our ever growing and loyal fan base. Keep posted for more dates to be announced in other cities as well."
Keep it locked to B.C. MMA Fan for updates on this event.
