PRIDE Total Elimination 2003

PPV Premieres Tonight

From the event’s promoter:


NY Underground Fighting
Canceled


      (New York, August 8th, 2003) The NY Underground Fighting show scheduled for today, Sunday, August 8th, has been canceled. Despite assurances by two Athletic Commissioners and a spokesman for the New York City Police Department that the amateur mixed martial arts event was legal and would be permitted to take place, representatives of the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) confronted the owner of the boxing gym where the event was to be held and pressured her into pulling out as the venue at the last minute.

      A special thanks goes out to all the fighters, trainers and coaches who had committed their time and effort to making this show possible, and a heartfelt apology goes out to the fans hoping to see some quality amateur mixed martial arts action in New York State. All options are being explored in terms of holding the NYSAC accountable for their unlawful actions.
