Wesley Chapel, FL – The biggest amateur mixed martial arts event in Wesley Chapel history will take place Saturday, February 15th at 6:00 pm.
Wesley Chapel Fight Night V features over 10 amateur bouts, 6 of them female fighters making this the first female dominated MMA event in the Tampa Bay Area.
“Female fans are an increasing part of the UFC and MMA audience,” AOL MMA Promoter Carlos Valle said. “With the advent of fighters such as Rhonda Rousey, Miesha Tate and Gina Carano, more women are stepping into the cage as well.”
On the last UFC fight card Rhonda Rousey vs Miesha Tate was the co-main event, bringing female UFC fighters into prime time. Wesley Chapel Fight Night is following in its footsteps with its female heavy fight card.
“This is by far the most female dominated fight card that has ever been put together in the Tampa Bay area,” Valle said. “A majority of the top local female amateurs will be fighting on this card to get a foothold in the circuit.”
Over 10 bouts are scheduled and feature competitors from all over the southwest Florida area.
