Capping off a great first year in The Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center, the sixth and final Fight Club OC show of 2011 set for Thursday, December 1st is nearly a sell out two weeks early. As a result promoter Roy Englebrecht is adding 280 new seats so that as many fans as possible can attend the seven bout boxing and mixed martial arts show!
“The fight fans in Orange County have spoken and they love the Fight Club OC shows in The Hangar,” said Englebrecht. “Our December 1st show will cap a great first season with six straight sellouts, so for the show on the 1st we will set up 280 seats right outside The Hangar doors that will sell for only $20, and just in case the weather doesn’t cooperate we are placing a canopy over these seats.”
With Roy Englebrecht Promotions asking their fans to provide feedback on the first year in Costa Mesa, fans will see the following changes at the December 1st….
a solid female bout….$5 beer….waitress service at your seats….and the 40′ video screen will now show replays of every exciting knockdown and knockout!
Here are some of the comments that fans send in from the email blast to Fight Club OC fans asking for their feedback on the first season:
