The Big Boys and MMA Hawaii Expo will be held this year on June 17, 18, 19 at the Neal Blaisdell Center in Honolulu. 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. If you are into Mixed Martial Arts, custom cars and bikes, music and hot women (or men), you do not want to miss this huge event at the Blaisdell.

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. If you need more fighter gear, cool T-shirts or nutritional products, there will be some great options to choose from all in one place, so you can avoid having to go shopping with your girlfriend at the mall.
