On August 20th, SBG Cork will host the Cork Open MMA Championships.
This will be a tournament for MMA competitors from age 12 to adults ranging from raw beginners to advanced amateurs.
We’re pushing out a few new ideas during this competition, including the 3 experience categories (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced). The original MMA Leagues had Rookie and Year 2 categories but since that format ended, no head-shot comps have been just one experience division. With the popularity of these competitions on the rise, the number of entries and rising skill levels mean that the time is ripe for expanding the divisions. This will allow a fairer competition for the raw novices and more of a challenge for those more advanced.
The Advanced division will also allow ammy level fighters to get more matches between their main fights.
