The next great promotion on the Florida MMA landscape commenced tonight with Rize of the Underground Fighting Championships in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Rome was not built in a day, as to can be said for new MMA promotions. What was originally scheduled for 13 MMA fights for this promotions debut, only six are still active leading up to the Main Event.
