The fourth edition of professional MMA night Rage In The Cage will take place on Sunday 18th November at SWG3 in Glasgow.
Organised by Fightstar Promotions, the event will feature an 8-man knockout tournament featuring top level fighters from two of the highest profile MMA gyms in the world – Xtreme Couture Gym in Las Vegas and Straight Blast Gym in Dublin, Ireland – as well as some other exciting pro fights. Though details of those involved in the 8-man tournament are still scarce, having such hugely respected MMA gyms involved is bound to produce an electric and memorable evening of fights.
Croatian kickboxing phenom Antonela Begonja Orlic will make her MMA debut on the evening, taking on 1-0 Brazilian flyweight Yasmin Castanho. With over 100 kickboxing fights to her name, Antonela relocated to Dublin to train under the 2017 World MMA Awards ‘Coach of the Year’ John Kavanagh at SBG Ireland.
Yasmin Castanho’s one and only MMA win came by way of the armbar against fellow Brazilian flyweight Leticia Oliviera Ribiero (0-2) at Imperio FC 1 held in Rio de Janiero, Brazil back in April 2018. Whilst Antonela undoubtedly has more striking experience, we will have to wait and see happens when – or if – these two take it to the ground. Be sure to check out our video of Antonela chatting with our very own James Hamilton about the upcoming fight on the MMA UK Facebook page.
SWG3 is located at 100 Eastvale Place, Glasgow, G3 8QG – only a short distance away from the SSE Hydro and Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum.
The event is Over 18’s Only. Unreserved seats are £25 plus fees and cage side seats £45 plus fees. Buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment!
