This annual mixed martial arts exposition, otherwise known as “The Ultimate Guy Show” gets bigger every year with more vendors, more fights and more spectators. This summer they are expecting approximately 8,000 attendees over 3 days.

Destiny as well as Up N Up will be holding MMA fights during the 3 day event. You will also have the opportunity to enter or watch the 2nd leg of the Hawaii Triple Crown Jiu-Jitsu Tournament.
