In 1996-1997, there were a series of MMA shows called "Fearless Fighting Challenge" that was put together by a guy named Magic Dane (who has been referred to as a thief by several people). They were held in Woodbridge, VA.
At one of the shows, a fighter from the Lions Den knocked out a European fighter and since the ref did nothing but stand there, the Lion's Den fighter hit this guy a couple of more times and then a riot nearly broke out. I was in the balcony during this commotion and I remember seeing a clip from it on the forum many years ago. I don't remember the names of the people involved since it was a while ago.
In the last show I went to, Paul Varleans actually showed up and fought. I believe Leo Dalla fought in one of the first ones.
The event was a series of tournaments with the winners of these tournaments supposedly fighting in Washington, DC on Pay-Per-View.
Needless to say, this never happened. I believe the very last tournament was cancelled because the building next door had caught fire and damage had been done to the center.
Does anyone else remember these shows?
