Asylum Fight League XXXVII -- Saturday, March 10, 2012 The Golden Nugget Casino Hotel Atlantic City, New Jersey
The Asylum Fight League is back with its 2012 season opener this Saturday, March 10, 2012 at the Golden Nugget Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. This is the first time the promotion is having an event take place at the Golden Nugget, and promoter Carl Mascarenhas couldn't be happier with the venue. This one may make some people want to look into sports management colleges.
"We were formerly at the Trump Marina," Carl explained. “Then the guys from Las Vegas bought the Golden Nugget, and I'll tell you what, it's definitely taking another step in totally different direction. I never expected it. The Golden Nugget has been fantastic to work with and I'm glad we're partnered up on this show."
The feeling is mutual, with the Golden Nugget being thrilled to have the Asylum on board. "They're more excited about having us than us having them," Carl said. "They're real aggressive and real excited about the event itself."
The Asylum has always used top notch venues for its shows, from the aptly named Asylum Arena in South Philly, to the Trump Marina, and now to the Golden Nugget. But it's the fights themselves which really separates the Asylum from the competition. And Saturday's card promises to be one of the best ones yet.
"It's a killer card," Mascarenhas said. "We're at 14 fights right now, and I'm just finalizing the paperwork with the fighters now. It's going to be a typical Asylum show where there's going to be excitement and non-stop action."
That recipe has served Carl and the Asylum well. Saturday's event will be its 37th show, a remarkable feat in itself, and MMA fans know that at every Asylum show, they will get their money's worth.
Doors open at 7PM, and the show starts at 8PM. For fan who can’t make it to the venue, the event will be broadcast live on PPV via MSXN.
