THE world’s most entertaining and dramatic combat sport is returning to Scotland by popular demand.
The MAX Xtreme Fighting event, organised by renowned Cage Wars Productions, brings together 24 of the world’s best hand-to-hand combat experts to the Braehead Arena in Glasgow on 15 March.
The sport, in which specially trained fighters compete in an octagonal ring using highly-evolved techniques known as Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), or better known as Xtreme Fighting, is now regarded as the world’s fastest growing sport in terms of popularity and can boast A-list fans such as George Clooney, Cindy Crawford and Paris Hilton, as well as football stars Wayne Rooney and Darren Fletcher.
Since the sport was first introduced in 1992, it has soared in popularity with clubs springing up across the whole UK and more than 5000 Xtreme Fighters training and competing regularly at different levels. More than 2500 fans are expected to attend the 12-bout event in Glasgow.
Jonny Burrows, spokesman for Cage Wars Productions, believes the Braehead Arena spectacle is a clear demonstration of the increasing appeal of MAX Xtreme Fighting.
He said: “As the popularity of Xtreme Fighting grows, people are beginning to realise that the skill levels needed to compete are incredibly high and only serious and dedicated athletes can rise to the level needed to achieve success.
“For anyone who has not seen an Xtreme Fighting event they should come along to the Braehead Arena and see for themselves what makes this the fastest growing sport in the world. There is nothing in combat sports that can touch Xtreme Fighting for excitement and an adrenalin-fuelled night of sports entertainment.
