Martial arts show postponed until October

mixed martial arts credit to rookie reflections

The organiser of a martial arts exhibition at The NEC claims to have been forced to postpone this weekend’s show “due to circumstances beyond our control”.
 
Ticket holders for The MMA Show Live, due to be held from 12 to 13 May, have been told a critical supplier to the event has cancelled its services. According to organiser Split Decision, this caused a series of knock-on effects that made it necessary to move the event to October.
 
Split Decision apologised to disappointed fans for postponing the show.
 
“We would like to thank everyone for their support and understanding, as we are deeply disappointed in having to make this decision,” the company said.
 
Liam Fisher from Split Decision told MMAjunkie.com he has had his personal address posted online and received death threats since the postponement. The publication also revealed several fighters scheduled to appear at the show are considering legal action to recover money promised to participants.
 
In February, the organiser announced its Martial Arts Show Live was expanding to include an extra show on mixed martial arts.
 
MMA Show ticket holders are invited to attend The Martial Arts Show Live in Hall 11 this weekend free of charge, and will receive replacement tickets for the rearranged dates for the show from 20 to 21 October.
