SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 27 February
2020 - Come 4 April 2020, REBEL Fighting Championship (REBEL FC), will be
introducing its first event under a new fight series, Rebel Fight Club. This new concept seeks to promote established and
promising MMA talent from across the world to make MMA more accessible and
exciting at the grassroots level.
Scheduled to be held at WA Italian
Club Inc, Perth, Australia, REBEL FC's inaugural event under the REBEL Fight
Club banner will be titled REBEL Fight Club -- Perth and will feature familiar
international stars such as Steven 'The Steamrolla' Kennedy, World Muay Thai
Champion Rob 'Powerdrill' Powdrill and two-time world boxing champion as well
as Muay Thai champion Wes "The Decappertator" Capper from Australia;
Shannon 'The Cannon' Ritch and The Ultimate Fighter Welterweight Tournament

The historic venue for the
inaugural REBEL Fight Club event - the WA Italian Club - is one of Perth's
most recognisable and longstanding clubs. Formed in 1934 to support Italian
migrants starting a new life in Australia, the WA Italian Club has hosted MMA and
combat sports events since 2007 and a full-house is expected for Rebel FC's
first foray into Australia.
"REBEL FC's new international 'REBEL
Fight Club' series of events will be an excellent platform for the best
international MMA stars to prove themselves. The winners of the 'REBEL Fight
Club' series will be given a shot to participate in title fights in REBEL FC's
signature events in China. This ensures that we will have the cream of the crop
in MMA that can inculcate the appreciation for MMA at grassroots level across
the globe," elaborates Justin Leong, CEO of REBEL FC.
"Perth is just the first of our planned
series of 'REBEL Fight Club' events around the world. We are looking at
replicating this concept in Central Asia, Europe and even the Middle East,"
adds Leong with an air of optimism.
Besides venues with a rich combat
sport history, future Rebel Fight Club
events could also be staged in interesting venues like power stations,
underground caverns, roof tops, airport hangers and even, night clubs.
