Victories MMA Tournament

Fighters from as far as Christchurch travelled to Whakatāne to give local fighters experience, but organisers also presented issues during the fights pushing the cause and recognition of illnesses that need more support and research such as the illness suffered by young baby Chase Topperwein who died last year from leukaemia.

Organisers hope to run more of these tournaments in Whakatāne to build the credibility of the fights further.
