COMBAT 8 – Breaking New Ground
On Sept 1st, 2012, Combat 8, based out of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia will be breaking new ground in MMA fighting. The first sporting event of its kind will showcase the best fighters from Down Under in a head to head contest of MMA vs Boxing.
CEO Nathan Swadling, ‘…spent two years developing a style of combat that was designed originally to bring a Mixed Martial Arts fighter and a Boxer head to head under an equal rules structure that complimented both styles. With both styles giving up a little to gain a lot more COMBAT 8 was created.’
The event will be held at Panthers Newcastle, entertainment venue, winner of the prestigious ‘Awards for Excellence Best Club Entertainment’ category for the past two years and a finalist for the 2012 award.
