As previously mentioned in the Rumour Mill and confirmed with the Ontario Athletic Commission, mixed martial arts is coming to Belleville, Ontario. A new promotion named Discipline MMA will hold their debut event at the home of the Belleville Bulls, Yardmen Arena, on April 27.
The President of Discipline MMA is Dave Mair, who was involved with the MMA Live 1 promotion in London, the ill-fated CEMMA show in Toronto, as well as the first sanctioned show in Ontario, MMA: The Reckoning in Casino Rama. At the Discipline MMA kickoff press conference, Mair announced that a portion of each ticket will be donated to Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial Fund in Quinte West.
The Quinte News attended the inaugural Discipline MMA press conference and reported that the Bay of Quinte Tourist Council President Ryan Williams expects “the economic spin-off for the region could amount to about a million dollars.”
