Contenders director Nik Aspden said: “I want to give the UK and USA fighters a chance to fight in front of the right people on the right level of promotion.
“There’s a lot of talent on the UK and USA 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 Futures.
Ticket outlets and availability will be communicated through the Contenders Facebook page.
