MMA (mixed martial arts) is a full-contact combat sport that allows striking and grappling, both standing and, on the ground, using techniques from various combat sports and martial arts.
NEVER SURRENDER MMA is a new amateur and professional combat association that focuses on bringing awareness to, and assisting veterans who are experiencing PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). NEVER SURRENDER MMA is also a veteran-owned business that provides live entertainment for the public, veterans and active-duty military personnel.
NEVER SURRENDER MMA has partnered with MVP (Military Veteran Project) to create “Never Give Up, Never Surrender, 22-0,” a Veterans’ suicide awareness program and showing veterans with PTSD that there is relief through combative sports. An estimated 22 military veterans commit suicide each day. Proceeds from the event and donations collected assist veterans in buying gym memberships and equipment used in their PTSD therapy.
General admission seats are $37, and a limited number of VIP table seats are available for $57. Tickets may be purchased at the Tony’s Pizza Events Center Box Office or at 888-826-SHOW.
