MMA Returns to the Rock !
In collaboration with West Coast Promotions, the River Rock Casino Resort is proud to announce a triumphant return of live MMA at the fabulous River Rock Show Theatre on Friday, July 9. After an explosive night of MMA action earlier this year at the Rock, this 12 fight card will feature even greater fireworks!
In the Main Event, coming off of an impressive win in his last fight, the ever exciting Tak Sasaki, fighting out the Wolfes Den in North Vancouver, takes on tough American opponent, Jason Rivera. Rivera fights out of the ‘Wand Team’ in Las Vegas, Nevada, which is owned and operated by PRIDE & UFC legend Wanderlei Silva. Expect some high flying action in this one as Sasaki looks to impress.
The Semi-Main Event will feature MMA at the Rock #1 Fight of the Night participant Sarah Mcleod. Fighting out of Team Denarius in North Vancouver, undefeated Mcleod looks to put on yet another impressive performance against Amy Caldwell out of Chaelies Combat Club in Everett, Washington.
The Main and Semi Main Event’s are Canada vs. USA affairs, so expect some fierce combat between the two neighboring nations. The remainder of the card will feature other outstanding BC MMA fighters including: Kelowna’s Chris Day, Campbell River’s Oren Hanscom, Comox Valley’s Nathan Swayze, and Vernon’s Tyson Fitch.
