The Asylum Fight League returns to the Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City on March 2 for another installment of thrilling amateur mixed martial arts action.
Slick submissions. Crushing knockouts. Back-and-forth battles. In 39 events, the Asylum Fight League has seen it all go down in the cage, and this – their 40th show – will be no different, with rookie and veteran fighters alike all hailing from the region’s top fight academies.
There are over a dozen fights scheduled, including:
- Mike Tiabl (Team Endgame, 4-2) vs. Greg Quarantello (BJJ Shore Academy, 7-2)
- Frank Roberts (Silver Fox BJJ, 2-1) vs. Kevin Perez (Cardo Urso’s Habu Pit, 3-0)
- Anthony Pipola (New York Combat Sambo, 2-0) vs. Adam Pakiela (JKM Fitness, 1-3)
“We are looking to get amateur fighters to the next level,” said AFL promoter Carl Mascarenhas. “There are other amateur events, but what sets us apart from them is we run a professional event with a professional look – from music to lights to venue.” Added Mascarenhas, “We provide the vehicle for those fighters who want to test their skills against the best regional fighters in their weight class, and show the results of all the hours of training.”
All bouts sanctioned by the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board and held under New Jersey amateur mixed martial arts rules.
Doors open at 7pm, first fight is at 8pm.
Fight card subject to change.
