The event has been postponed until June 6, 2020.
Sorry for the inconvenience. The NAC is our governing body and we respect them greatly for what the do for our sport of mixed martial arts. We stand behind their decision on this global issue.
Please understand this is not our choice. We care a great deal about our fighters and fans and wanted to keep you informed as quickly as possible.
