Art of War Fighting Championships #9, “The Return” promises to restore a touch of class to the Indiana MMA scene with its return to the Wyndham Hotel.
Indianapolis, IN – January 17, 2014 – Long known for its high-value productions, Mad Wolf Promotions Art of War Fighting Championships #9, “The Return” brings the spotlight back to where it all began with its return to the Wyndham Hotel, the venue that helped build its reputation for offering the best overall event environment as well as featuring the best all-amateur Mixed Martial Arts action. The Wyndham, located at 2544 Executive Drive, Indianapolis, IN served as the battleground for several previous Art of War events over the years before owner and founder Robert Woolf recently decided to try a larger venue nearby in hopes of drawing a bigger gate. “This year we wanted to pull back and focus on quality and atmosphere,” said Woolf, who recently purchased the Indy Fit Club (formerly MMA Fit Club) at such and such mall. “So far we are planning just 3 Art of War events spaced 4 months apart for 2014 in order to leave time for a grappling and kickboxing event late in the year if we perceive the demand and desire for it is there. Art of War #9 will take place on Saturday, February 1 with doors opening at 6 pm and the first bell at 7:30. Two amateur title fights will be featured with the 125 and 135 lb. belts up for grabs.
A stacked card from top to bottom promises fireworks with a co-main event featuring wrestling phenom Jarred Brooks against Ruben Perez who has looked unstoppable, earning quick, violent, decisive stoppages in his wins to date. The main event features JustinDowcett, perhaps the hottest ammy in Indiana, who finally gets a shot at a belt, but he’ll have to go through another tough customer in Chris Wanke who also has his heart set on wearing the 135 lb strap.
