Tuesday January 4, 2015- Once again Global Proving Ground (GPG) has delved into the heart of the fighters and fans of mixed martial arts (MMA) with their latest philanthropic card called, ‘Fighters Against Dog Fighting’ on January 17th, 2015. This amazing card will be the second in an unending series of MMA shows and events that give back to the community at large, and it will take place at the GPG Event Center in Pennsauken, New Jersey.
This awesome fight card will be headlined by two of the top MMA Light Heavyweights on the GPG roster. Bellator veterans, Sam “Sammy O” Oropeza will take on Timothy “The Good Soldier” Woods in this heavily anticipated main event. This is not a card to be missed! The co-main event will feature top middleweights Anton Berzin taking on Chad Herrick in an epic battle on the GPG stage. Do not miss this card!
GPG Co-Founder James Jefferson said, “As human beings and fighters, we have a choice as to what we’ll do and whether or not we will walk away from a conflict or a fight, and of course this isn’t the case with animals. All over the world there are rings of horrible people exploiting animals for profit and entertainment and it sickens me. This event will be a great opportunity for both GPG and the amazing fighters on our cards to expose the ugly truth surrounding these animal fighting rings. This charity, coupled with our fight card, will break in 2015 like nothing you’ve seen.”
This card will encompass what real fighting is about and it will be in the hands of willing professionals and show the world what real competition is all about! Get your tickets now because they’re going fast!
