MMA Underground on tonight

WHEN the hexagon cage becomes the centre of attention tonight at C.ex Coffs there will be a big crowd there to witness its bloody baptism.

Underground Tapout promoter Shane Balmer says that despite protestations from sections of the community regarding tonight’s event there are plenty showing their approval of the night by voting with their feet.

“Ticket sales are usually an indicator and they’re moving fairly well,” Balmer said.

Balmer added that strong crowd support tonight will probably mean that tonight’s event won’t be a one-off.

“We really want to do this show in Coffs a few times a year and if we make this show do as well as it can there’s nothing to stop that in the future,” he said.

Fighters from as far away as Sydney and Hervey Bay are making their way to the Coffs Coast to be on the card but Balmer believes it is the local boys who will command the most attention.

Local fighters Luke Morris and Jack Poultney will be facing off in tonight’s main event.

“Apparently they’ve trained together before so there could be a bit of a rivalry there.”
