After playing host to the birth of Mixed Martial Arts in America by hosting the first two UFC events ever, Denver has been noticeably absent as a host from the national MMA scene.  Since the first two UFC events, Denver hasn’t seen a large scale fight or promotion.   That is about to change as King of Champions MMA (KOCMMA) and Fight to Win MMA bring Denver its first ever MMA fan expo and Worlds Collide pro fight card.

King of Champions MMA promotion and Fight to Win MMA promotion, in conjunction with their fighters, will be hosting Brazilian Jiu Jitsu demonstrations,  name brand and supplement vendors, and the top of the line in name brand mma gear and apparel.  In addition, some of Colorado’s best fighters will be in attendance taking pictures and signing autographs, including the UFC’s  Brendan Schaub,  Nate Marquardt, Chris Camozzi, and the WEC’s Donald Cerrone and Leonard Garcia.  KOCMMA and Fight to Win MMA also have some surprise celebrities in store that you will not want to miss.  The Fan expo is Saturday July 24th and 25th from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at Magnus Arena on the Denver University campus.

On July 24th at 7 pm, KOCMMA and Fight to Win promotions will be hosting Worlds Collide, also at Magnus Arena.
