PRO FIGHTING 7 – EVERYTHING

Taiwan’s only currently organized professional MMA event is part competition, part reunion, and all party.  Promoter Royal Chiou has a unique pool of fighters to draw from: the wealth of expat fighters who have come through or have ties with people in Taiwan; the neighboring South Korean fighters itching for a chance to fight; and now, the finally-developing Taiwanese amateur MMAists.  Events can’t be watched anywhere by broadcast – a ticket must be bought to see the show live at Taipei’s freakishly popular nightclub Luxy.  Otherwise you’ll just have to wait for videos, photos, and even results to trickle in after the attendees have all recovered from their hangovers.
