In two hours of pure adrenalin, the gladiators of the INTERNATIONAL FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP (IFC) came together in a competition to find the best of the best. IFC rules permit all styles of fighting: Wrestling, Jui-jitsu, Judo, Karate, Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, and Sambo. These fighters have already dominated in their individual disciplines the IFC invites only true champions into the cage. They pit warrior against warrior in fierce battles of skill, honour and art and they arent just looking for the best fighter, theyre looking for the dominant fighting style. Facing off in the squared circle, the contenders will need speed, strength, technique – and every ounce of sweat they have – to walk away an IFC King.
International Fighting Championships (IFC), lit up the State of Hawaii with the event of the year, “SHOGUN” at the Honolulu Convention Center. “SHOGUN” was a night of tremendous excitement as some of the worlds top mixed martial arts fighters battled in a cage. This marked the first time that Hawaii had a cage used in a Hawaiian mixed martial arts event. No stranger to the ring, Hawaiis own, Amaury Bitetti, headlined the night in a bout against Dennis Hallman; both men are UFC veterans.
Among more than 20 combatants was local boy Baret “The Finisher” Yoshida, a top-10 fighter who clashed with Caleb Mitchell for the World Featherweight Title.
