California’s MMA landscape bottlenecks with beasts between the borders of Northern California and the Central Valley. Due to the diligence of various promotions, many professional mixed martial artists are offered a stage to work through sport’s most difficult, and complex, matrix.
Promoters who hosted more than one event over the course of 2017’s calendar year and received coverage from norcalmixedmartialarts.com were selected for nomination. The shows to choose from for NorCal MMA’s 2017 Professional Promotion of the Year includes: Global Knockout, Tachi Palace Fights, Dragon House, and Conquer Fighting Championships.
In Jackson, California, popular prize fighters, from throughout the area and beyond, are contracted to populate Global Knockout’s crimson canvas.
GKO’s latest has consistently been their greatest as they continually add notches of quality, ranging from videography to match-ups, to their production. Whether the action occurs in Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort’s outdoor arena or inside their Grand Oak Ballroom, an evening of memorable MMA hits the jackpot amongst those who travel up a hill to watch others become king of the mountain.
Tachi Palace Fights
With a storied history of delivering high-caliber MMA out of California since 2006, Tachi Palace Fights packaged 2017 in a similar fashion.
The fight cards offered by Tachi Palace Fights flash fresh faces as well as savvy veterans. No matter a competitor’s tenure, everyone, via the live stream provided by Sherdog.com, can enjoy the hostilities housed inside Lemoore’s Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino.
Dragon House is the Bay Area’s longest running MMA promotion, and the ammenities they offer answers any questions as to how they got there.
Not only does the Dragon House cage open a door for the professionals on the local circuit, they also load their events with amateurs. Fortunately, the fighters who find a slot at Dragon House will be available to friends and family, as well as a fortune of new fans, by accessing the Pay-Per-View stream, which is available on Dragon House’s website.
Conquer Fighting Championships
Conquer FC is another pro-am promotion established in the Bay Area, and, though they’ve only dipped their toe into the fast-moving current of running an MMA organization, the newly-founded show has highlighted an ability to swim with the sharks.
If the scenery inside the cage, for whatever reason, isn’t holding your attention, the view from any angle inside Richmond’s Craneway Pavilion will take your breath away. Although members of FloCombat won’t see the Golden Gate Bridge off in the distance or hear the water slap the shore between rounds, they won’t have to miss a moment of action.
