King of Combat Sports returns to Broomfield, Colorado on March 15th.

HDNet Television’s “Inside MMA” will be attending the tournament!

Denver/Broomfield, Colorado, March 14, 2008 – It’s that time again. On March 15th, the world’s best combat grapplers travel to Colorado to test themselves in the ultimate submission fighting challenge.

Now in it’s eighth year, the Pancrase USA sanctioned tournament has matured into a world championship event. Last year nearly 400 fighters from ten countries and thousands of spectators took part in our combined North American Championship series. This year promises to be even bigger and better.

New in 2008 is a World Championship Team award called the Ozaki Cup. Named in honor of Pancrase President Masami Ozaki, the giant trophy will be awarded to the tournament’s top scoring team.

Also new are special “King and Queen of Combat Grappling” awards for the absolute division champions.

Fans and competitors alike can look forward to a day of world-class submission fighting from experts in the world’s oldest martial art.

Discover why mixed martial arts and submission fighting have rapidly become the nation’s fastest growing and most popular new combat sport.
