East Anglian MMA promotion Contenders will make history later this year when it crosses the Atlantic for a ground-breaking show in Florida aimed at showcasing the best of British, European and American talent.


The Norwich-based promotion, established in 2013 by Steve Newman, will host Contenders 30: Florida at the 4,800-seat Lee Civic Center in North Fort Myers on April 25.

The 13-fight show will feature an amateur undercard followed by a spectacular Team UK v Team USA main card as fighters compete for glory and the chance to impress on a major stage.

Contenders director Nik Aspden said: “I want to give the UK fighters a chance to fight in front of the right people.

“There’s a lot of talent on the UK scene, but they’re not getting the exposure they deserve – we can give that to them, and help them on their journey.

“It’s going to be massive exposure for all the fighters involved.”

Team UK has been made up of some of the best established fighting talent and up-and-coming prospects in the country, while their American foes will be drawn from MMA powerhouses including American Top Team, The Jungle and The Armory. 

Ticket outlets and availability will be communicated through the Contenders Facebook page.
