Its going to be an exciting event. The Tourney & MMA Show on Saturday. Also don't forget about the great seminar that Gokor does on Sunday. Can't Wait for the event.

does the event have pro fights? If so, what is the contact info?

If you are referring to the mma show after the Hayastan then no there will only be Amateur fights. We do still have a few openings for amateurs on the MMA show. Go to CagedCombatChallenge.com and fill out a fighter app if interested. As for the Grappling Tourney as always everyone is welcome. We usually have several Pro MMA guys that come and compete to keep their grappling skills in shape while they are in between fights.
This is a great event for MMA fighters because the Hayastan rules allow you to fight just like in MMA just Minus the Strikes. There are not any restrictions on leglocks and other subs usually not allowed at other tournaments.

For sure, I love Hayastan tournaments but it's too far from Arkansas. If there were pro fight opportunities then I would consider it because I could make better use of the weekend.


The Satsuma Spiders are huge fans of the Hayastan Tournaments.

Our kids get to break out all the footlocks they normally can't use.
