Catch MMA action when budding Conor McGregors do battle in Apocalypse Fight Series

Mixed martial arts impresario Joe Moore has urged fight fans to catch the action when budding Conor McGregors do battle at the next instalment of Apocalypse Fight Series.

Moore, founder of Apocalypse Fight Series and co-organiser of the September 30 event at Bognor’s Arun Leisure Centre, has spoken of his excitement of AFS5.

He said: “The MMA scene in Britain is huge at the moment and for anyone that has been to our shows before, they will know that we have an impressive pool of talent here on the south coast, all of which are ready to make the next step in the game.

“Ashley Kilvington, who started his MMA career on our shows here in Bognor Regis, is now Shock & Awe champion and most recently fought on a Cage Warriors bill that was being broadcasted on BT Sport – an event in which a certain Conor McGregor has fought on before!

“We like to think our shows are more of an event than just a ‘fight night’, we invest a lot in ensuring we have the best production possible – from our audio and visual partners at MASS Event, to our MC and, of course, the ring girls.

“The beauty of the venue is that there really isn’t a bad seat in the house, we have a bar open throughout the show for refreshments and we’re also accommodating businesses who would like to make the most of our ringside hospitality packages.

The MMA bouts range from Brazilian jiu jitsu right through to boxing. Back in April, organisers teamed up with children’s charity SnowDrop Trust and raised £874.89.
