Irish MMA League and Cage Contender team up

There is some pretty big news before the Irish MMA League kicks off its 2012 Season on March 3rd in Loughlinstown Leisure Centre in Dublin. It seems 2012 will herald a new era for the MMA League as they enter into partnership with Cage Contender, Irelands largest MMA Promotion.

Since its inception in 2003 the MMA League has been the starting point for many of Ireland’s top ranked MMA Fighters. Champions like Owen Roddy, Chris Fields and Tim Murphy all began their MMA journey at the league. Over the years many of the country’s other stand out fighters have featured too John Walsh, Clive Staunton, Paddy Holohan, Stephen Coll and John Redmond to name but a few

Under this new partnership agreement the winner and runner up in each 2012 Veteran division will be automatically selected to enter a marquee TUF style Cage Contender Fight Night event which will be held later in the year.  Much like “The Ultimate Fighter” there will be two teams for fighters mentored by different coaches and at the end no fewer than 3 prize packages will be handed out by Cage Contender. Each prize pack includes 3 semi pro fights on full Cage Contender events in 2013 plus choice of 2 sponsorships which will include Fight Wear, Training Gear, Supplements, Career Mentoring and Sports psychology
