19 Jan Gran Canaria to be the venue for one of the top MMA combat nights in Europe
The island of Gran Canaria will be the venue for one of the most important MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) events to be held in Europe in 2018, the AFL-14 Canarias. The promoter for the evening, AFL (Ansgar Fighting League) a well-known specialist professional MMA events company for Spain and Portugal, has chosen Gran Canaria as the place to celebrate 2018’s premier event. The date will be 17th March at the Gran Canaria Arena, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
AFL, with the close collaboration and sponsorship of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria through the Instituto Insular de Deportes and the Town Hall of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, have themselves the target of consolidating this international event as one of the top events in Europe. Other sponsors, including Maxtop Nutrition and Bad Boy have also got behind the event with the aim of making it a leading light on the international calendar on the MMA world stage.
The AFL-14 Canarias will feature a total of 19 fights, and will be attracting the most important MMA fighters ever to have come together for such an event in Spain. AFL will be bringing to Gran Canaria no less than 5 international fighters who have taken part in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), the most important mixed martial arts league in the world. Top fighters include Erick “Perry” Montano, Enrique Marin “Wasabi”, Igor Araújo, Hermes França and Jonathan Ortega, who will be the top attractions at this year’s event. They will be competing alongside other well-known competitors who boast a long list of honours, including local fighters Juanma Súarez and Lionel Padilla, plus veteran fighter Thiago Martins. The organizers expect the event to be a roaring success in terms of the number of fans attending, as was the case in the AF-11, last time around in Gran Canaria, which was a sell-out. On this occasion the wonderful facilities at the Gran Canaria Arena, which holds up to 10,000 spectators, will be the stage for this MMA competition, which is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world.
Tickets for this AFL-Canarias event can be purchased at www.mastaquilla.com with prices ranging from between €20 and €40, set at highly reasonable prices so that nobody need miss out on one of the finest evenings of MMA combat in Europe.
