President and CEO of Mayhem Promotions Jeff Albin, spoke to PRO MMA (promma.info) about the big event, “We had a really good show at the same venue back in March. We’ve continued to develop relationships with impressive camps in this area, and feel we are putting forth a strong fight card; camps like Team Colon, Extreme Couture, Hackney’s Combat, The Hive, and Victory Martial Arts. We’re confident that every one of our fights can contest for fight of the night. We’re introducing two new belts at the 155 lbs. and 170 lbs. classes.”
“Mixed Martial Arts is the fastest growing sport in the world.” We hear this phrase all the time.
Critics ask, “Is MMA getting more popular or is it just the UFC?” The answer is, MMA is becoming more and more popular.
The proof of MMA’s rising popularity is evident in places like Chicago, Illinois where a brand new MMA organization entitled Mayhem Promotions recently held it’s very first fight card: “Disorderly Conduct” with over fifteen hundred fans in attendance.
