The MMA Show Live have given us 10 prizes of 1 pair of VIP weekend tickets and 12 month subscription to Fighters Magazine to give away at Cage Contender 13.

To be entered in the draw simply put your name on the back of your event ticket and drop it into the MMA Show Live stand on the night. The draw will take place during the half way interval.

It looks like a gas mask and it restricts the amount of oxygen you can breathe.
It supposedly replicates training at high altitude.

For these masks to have any significant effect on performance and to replicate high altitude training they need to be worn almost everyday for at least 1hr at high intensity excersice which in turn has its own high risks. Not many people are willing to take the risk id think.

I know thery're mainly European fighters but still seems a bit of a waste bringing that many fighters to one place and not putting on an event.

very true john, & no explanation to the public either. it was randy couture`s manager that mentioned that all his fighters are thinking about suing. although we get very few opportunities to see mma fighters over here so i will still probably try and go in october, it will kill me giving them the money though

I don't see how they can do it in October tbh. The seem to have shafted so many people this time, who would want to deal with them?

I take it Cage Contender will have no part in tickets sales for the "so called October" event?
