Trench Warz helps sport of mixed martial arts grow

For Cuki Alvarez the Trench Warz series helped the sport of mixed martial arts grow in the CNMI.

The Trench Warz coordinator said the sport immediately earned a fan base since they started with Trench Warz Fight Night on Nov. 26, 2005.

“The sport has grown tremendously by leaps and bounds since 'Trench Warz I'. I was surprised by the support and interest shown by the fans,” said Alvarez.

Alvarez said aside from “Trench Warz V: Return of the Octagon,” they are also planning three more MMA fights this year.

“We plan to hold one fight for every three months. To give the fighters the chance to prove their skills during their months of training.”

Alvarez added they would also hold a second “Rites of Passage” in April to give opportunity for new fighters to gain experience in a real fight.

The first Rites of Passage event was held in December last year at the Trench Tech Purebred Gym behind Moylans Insurance in Garapan.

“Rites of Passage” served as a venue for first-timers and fighters without a win to showcase their skills.

It also served as a stepping-stone for several of the fighters to get invited to earn a slot in future Trench Warz MMA events.

In other news, 15 fights will be featured in tomorrow's “Trench Warz V: Return of the Octagon” at the Taga Hall of the Saipan World Resort with George “G-Shock” David, 2-0, battling “Kill Bill” Saures of Team Xtreme in the main event.
