Doors to the event open at 6.30pm at the Tatiara Civic Centre, Bordertown, on Saturday October 19.

Training gyms from Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia, Tasmania and South Australia will be represented.

One competitor, Namwan Sinbi, has travelled from Thailand to train at a Victorian gym in preparation for the show. She will be featuring in the main event with Brooke Cooper, from Kaos gym in Queensland.

Promoter Terry Hutchings commented: "This year's event is the fourth we have held in Bordertown. We have had huge support leading up to the show from trainers and fighters, also from sponsors and the general public.

"This show will be of a high standard and very entertaining."

The organisers, Bordertown BJC Martial Arts Club, are excited to again bring to the local area a showcase of what is a fast growing and very popular sport in Australia.

"We began running this event to bring a different experience to our relatively small country town. With our sport, we have to travel long distances away, so we brought the show to us with this event," said Robyn Miles, one of the club instructors and event coordinator.

The main events are Inter-Continental and Australian titles, making for a thrilling and competitive night. Twelve matches are confirmed at this stage.

Renowned MC Perry Cale will compere the event, which will be videoed and live-streamed world-wide, via FITE TV, pay-per-view.

There will be food, event merchandise and bar facilities at the venue (strictly no BYO). Eftpos will be available.

Tickets are available online via Ticketbooth and at the door if not sold out. This is an all ages event, but those under 15 years must be accompanied by an adult.
