Fivestar Fight League 8 “Barefoot Beach Battle” is in the history books!
Event went off great, a few minor hiccups with the challenges of the outdoor venue but when it was all said and done everyone had a blast and it was a great show!
A Ton of thank you’s to shout out –
Starting with the Fighters and Teams that traveled in from all over BC, Alberta and even up from Portland Oregon to be involved with the show.
Secondly the amateur fighters who hung in there while we waited right to the last minute for sanctioning from the province, you guys are awesome!
Thanks to the Penticton commission as well as the BC Provincial commission for pulling it all together in the first and only event that will ever see a provincial and city commission work together in BC. They both went above and beyond to help make this event happen. (Also thanks to Bill Mahood and Eric Hunter for making the trip down to help out with officials duties last minute)
Special thanks to Jeremy from MMA Sucka for the in ring interviews,
EON Therapeutics for stepping in and filming the event,
Davidson Photography for the great photos, (SEE THEM HERE)
Barefoot Beach Resort and Staff for Hosting us.
And of course a huge shout out to all of our Sponsors and Fans, without you there would be no Fivestar events!
