PULA, Croatia, July 28, 2022 (Newswire.com) - It's been more than 2,000 years since warriors fought for their lives inside such a hallowed monument. But on Saturday, Sept. 3, a new generation of gladiators takes center stage at one of six surviving Roman amphitheaters on the planet.
Fight Nation Championship presents an evening of mixed martial arts at storied Pula Arena that's destined to go down in MMA history. Six prior pay-per-view promotions and eight events connected to FNC's "Armagedon" MMA league, all staged throughout Croatia, have paved the way for this unprecedented showcase inside an ancient structure built between 27 BC and AD 68.
The fastest-growing MMA organization in Europe promises a dynamic card of full-contact fighting at FNC 7—including three title contests in the same night.
The heavyweight crown will be on the line when Brazilian Gerônimo dos Santos (44-23-1) steps into the octagon against Ivan Vitasović (10-5-1), the top-ranked heavyweight in the Adriatic region who fights out of Pula. Another fighter out of Pula, Daniel Bazant (6-3-0), will battle Brazilian Iuri Alcântara (36-10-0) for the featherweight title. And a pair of undefeated Croatians, Dani Barbir (4-0-0) and Andi Vrtacic (2-0-0), will square off for the middleweight crown.
