UFA CEO Jordan “Jay” Adams expressed, “I’m really looking forward to calling a UCC PANAMA event. They really let hands fly in Central America and the refs keep the action going. Like the CWC show we just did in Germany, that featured fighters from all over Europe, UCC is truly an international event pulling fighters in from all over the Americas. Just a few of the countries on the card include Panama, Venezuela, Ecuador, Colombia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras and the United States.”
“It’s a dream come true” said UCC CEO Ramfis Issacs. “For over 20 years we’ve been working really hard trying to achieve our goals. One is to broadcast our events on US television which we will now do through United Fight Alliance. This will be huge to position UCC on the top and gain international exposure.”
