A new and increasingly popular event at Atlantic City casinos is Mixed Martial Arts.
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a full contact sport that allows a wide range of fighting techniques including boxing, kickboxing, wrestling and jujitsu.
Mixed Martial Arts fights are faster and shorter than traditional boxing or wrestling matches. As many as 16 bouts can be included in a single evenings schedule. MMA events make a good fit for the casino environment as the closeness to the casino gambling, music and bar action is favored by the appreciative younger and sometimes rowdy crowds.
The Atlantic City MMA bouts feature both professionals and amateur fighters trying to break into the big time.
At the Resorts casino the "New Breed Fighters" put on bouts every four to six weeks at the casino's Superstar Theater.
The Tropicana offers the "Ring of Combat" at its Tropicana Showroom.
The "Asylum Fight League" holds bouts at the Trump Marina's Grand Cayman Theater.
