The Most Fierce MMA Tournament .
We are MMA (mixed martial arts) professionals, enthusiasts, who have been growing this sport in Lithuania for more than 20 years. We believe that fights without rules here still have a lot of untapped potential, that’s why we decided to enter a new stage – to organize international, top-level tournaments “Blade Fights” and create all the conditions so that Lithuanian athletes could constantly improve and compete with the most famous fighters from all over the world.
By the name “Blade Fights” we wanted to say that our goal is to create an exceptionally high level of fights where the sharpest, fiercest, most professional fighters meet and to share the beauty of these fights with others – not only in Lithuania, but also viewers from all over the word.
The road to the tournament will not be easy, but we promise to help you along it. The result will be exciting.
