Press Release
Featuring only professional, elite fighters from around the globe, Royce Gracie’s “FIGHTFEST” is revolutionizing the industry by merging the hottest alternative music acts today with the fastest growing sport. Royce Gracie’s “FIGHTFEST” is a competitive event pitting warrior against warrior in hand-to-hand battles of skill, honor and art.

From Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to wrestling and Muay Thai boxing, all styles are encouraged, but in order to consistently win, participants must be well versed in every aspect of the fight game.

Royce Gracie’s “FIGHTFEST”. It’s about punches, kicks, elbows, knees, big knockouts, technical submissions, takedowns, and strategy. It’s like no other sport you’ve ever seen!

Royce Gracie’s “FIGHTFEST” takes the sport to the mainstream. The sanctioning of mixed martial arts by states such as Nevada has brought credibility to the sport and the rest of the country will find out what fight fans already know. There are rules to protect the competitors and the sport is as safe, if not safer, than many of the major league American Sports.

Which style will reign supreme? Which man will be left standing?
