A Renzo Gracie black belt from Israel who has featured in the ADCC several times, Haim Gozali contacted GRACIEMAG.com for help promoting the latest MMA event in the Middle East.
The fledgling Israel Fighting Championship (IFC) event, set to take place November 9 in Tel Aviv, offers up a card replete with big names from the fight world. Among them: Jeff Monson, Daniel Gracie, Hermes França, Alexandro Ceconi, Charles “Krazy Horse”, Ido Pariente, Shone Carter, Rameau Sokodjou, Frank Trigg, and Ricco Rodriguez.
Haim, who once lost a fight to Ronaldo Jacaré at Jungle Fight 7, also announced the event will be broadcast over the internet.
“The event features a number of fighters who have been through the UFC and Pride, and we intend for it to be the biggest and most talked about show here, both in the Middle East and the Mediterranean region,” says the black belt. The event can be watched on gofightlive.tv and on Israel’s Channel fight sports channel. Our aim is to pave the way for MMA to grow internationally.
According to Gozali, the fights will take place in a cage at a venue with an eleven thousand-spectator capacity.
