On Saturday, January 13th, the top Mixed Martial Arts promotion in the Region returns to the White House Theatre in Branson, MO for their 70th Event, the ShoFIGHT Grand Prix Tournament. Twelve of the top Middleweight Fighters in the Midwest will travel to Branson to compete in a single elimination tournament for the ShoFIGHT Grand Prix Championship.
One fighter will win three fights in one night to become Champion. “this is an incredible opportunity for young fighters to cement themselves at the top of the division. Very rarely are fighters allowed to compete more than once in the same night, but we have been granted special permission from our Sanctioning Body to present this event to the fans,” says ShoFIGHT CEO JT Tilley.
“We are very fortunate to have involvement from all of the top teams in the region, and the bracket for this event is outstanding,” continued Tilley, “We will determine on Saturday night the top competitor is at 185 pounds.”
