We.. are.. LIVE!

It is with much anticipation and happiness that I compose my 1st piece for The Ultimate Writer NZ.

It is also with great pride (as an un-ashamed ‘shore boy’) that I write this as it is about one of The North Shore, Auckland, New Zealands own grass-roots MMA promotions – Shuriken NZ.

As far as home-grown MMA goes, Shuriken are one of the big players on the burgeoning NZMMA scene (yes, we have a scene). Infact, burgeoning may not even be the right word as we do have an established fight-scene, so let’s edit that to – a growing; a developing; an advancing; a cusp-of-greatness-sitting NZMMA scene.

With that in mind – this Saturday night (NZST) I will be covering the next installment in a long list of excellent MMA events from Shuriken NZ (many of which I have had the privilege of attending) – Proving Grounds – from home of the New Zealand Breakers Basketball team, The North Shore Events Centre.

Another stacked card, in true Shuriken NZ fashion that also includes the WelterWeight Title bout as the Main Event. Tickets from Dash Tickets – presales $35 inc BF, door $45.

Doors open at 5pm, fights start at 6pm and i’ll be warming up via my TWITTER @TheUltim8Writer from about 5.30pm and following up with some play-by-play coverage of fights from the card and looking to get some interviews done with the main event fighters!

So if you’re going along and you see a stocky (I use the term euphemistically) Maori-looking guy with an attempted neck-beard and a laptop covering the fights, that’s me – come say hey and we can discuss MMA between rounds 🙂

Check some past action from Shuriken MMA events in the Official Proving Grounds Fight Promo and like Shuriken NZ’s FB page for more info, competitions and a peak inside the Shuriken fight family.

One thought on “We.. are.. LIVE!

  1. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout off your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only havin one orr 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could spae it out better?
