REBEL FC 8 – A Warrior’s Return(靓战羊城)

REBEL Fighting Championship (REBEL FC) is making good on its promise to host eight events in the most important cities in China for this year in its quest to not only unearth Chinese Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) talent but bring out the beauty of martial arts at its birthplace, Guangdong province.

Happening on Wednesday, 30 May 2018, at the Tianhe Sports Centre in Guangzhou (a major city in Guangdong), A Warrior’s Return will feature three blockbuster bouts pitting three of the best fighters in China against three high-level international fighters. REBEL FC 8 – A Warrior’s Return will be staged slightly more than a month after REBEL FC 7 – Fight for Honour, which will be hosted in Shanghai on 29 April 2018. This underlines REBEL FC’s serious intent in developing MMA for the long run in China.

“When talking about the origins of Chinese martial arts and MMA, Guangdong has a long tradition of martial arts and is home to many martial arts masters. The famous Chinese martial artist, Bruce Lee, whose roots were from Guangdong, is regarded in martial arts circles worldwide as the ‘Father of MMA’ There are many MMA enthusiasts in China, and we hope to promote the spirit of MMA in China as a tribute to Chinese martial arts,” said REBEL FC CEO, Justin Leong.

"The quality of the competition is the most important thing in our fights. We invite international MMA stars to compete with China's top MMA talent to ensure high standards. We are confident that the quality and intensity of the fights will be riveting for audiences in Guangdong.
