On 23th Oct 2016… Last Sunday very sunny afternoon 4 amateur PANCRASE fights were held at D1GP (near the entrance) and hundreds of audience watched their fights. (Half of audience watched MMA and Cage directly for the first time?!)

I think the audience of D1GP tend to like to watch something…special… super… ultimate… and to take risks. And they are very similar to the audience of PANCRASE. Almost the same domain. (The keyword is “Extreme Sports” and “Excitement”.)

So this appearance is the good opportunity for PANCRASE them to understand how MMA is.
Good investment for future.
