From the event’s promoter:


The North American Mixed Martial Arts Championships being held on November 4th in the West Warwick Civic Center have been CANCELLED. Please accept our apology for any inconvenience this causes.

Why was the event cancelled?

  1. The problems that the Boston based Kickboxing promoter caused in Rhode Island have still not subsided
  2. Our partner and friend Serge Bouyssou who was helping us with the event had a family emergency (His dad had a heart attack). His dad is all right for now, however, is requiring Serge’s attention. We wish Serge and his family our thoughts and pray for his dad’s healthy recovery
  3. Time is short, we will reschedule for early next year and have an awesome event!
