FIGHT UK ends the year in sytle.
The fourth show of 2011 will see Fight UK provide one of the UK MMA highlights of the year, whilst moving the promotion to the prestigious Athena venue in the heart of Leicesters cultural quarter.
Saturday, November 19th will see Fight UK 5 bring the cream of the UK MMA fighters to one venue.
Originally designed in 1936 by Robert Arthur Bullivant as an Odeon Cinema, the venue represented one of the largest, most extravagant buildings within the region comprising of simply one screen seating over 3000 guests. It was then subdivided into 4 screens in the 60s and remained closed throughout much of the 90s.
As a landmark building situated within the cultural quarter of the city centre, Athena combines original features such as its exceptional acoustic insulation with state of the art technology.
Centrally located within reach of all major road, rail and air networks, Athena boasts a capacity of over 120 to 1500 guests, making the facility amongst the largest and most flexible in the Midlands.
This event is not to be missed.
