One of Europe's fastest growing combat sports promotions, Final Fight Championship, is to hold its first US event this Friday in Daytona Beach, Florida.
At the end of this week, FFC is to face its biggest challenge so far and launch its first event in the US. The format of the event already proved to be very attractive in Europe and the show will thus be comprised of six MMA matches and five kickboxing bouts.
The MMA part of the event will be packed with some great American and Brazilian fighters. Therefore, it is of no surprise at all that two Brazilian fighters, Thiago Rela and Danillo Villefort, are to headline the event. Another match that will surely attract many fans is the one between Matt Van Buren and Jeremy Kimball.
When it comes to the kickboxing part of the event, it will also include some established European names such as Mladen Brestovac, one of the world's best heavyweight kickboxers. This will be Brestovac's comeback match after losing to world's No. 1 Rico Verhoeven at recent Glory event in Paris. Another talent coming from Europe will also be Tigran Movsisyan who already built a great reputation in the FFC fighting tough opponents and attacking the division's throne.
FFC 24 Daytona Beach is to take place June 3 at 8 PM, that is, June 4 at 2 AM CET. Join us at Ocean Center in Daytona Beach or watch FFC 24 live onwww.fightchanneltv.com.
