Wheelchair MMA fights to take place in England

    Is the world ready for wheelchair MMA?

    According to a bloodyelbow.com report, UK fight promotion Ultimate Cage Fighting Championships has joined with the Wheeled Warriors to stage a series of wheelchair MMA fights, slated for later this year in South Yorkshire, England.

    An official date and venue is yet to be determined.

    The show will feature amputees and fighters in wheelchairs, similar to the wheelchairs used in wheelchair basketball.

    “It is clear this concept is well-received and ahead of its time as very few would expect something of its kind to come to fruition so soon,” Wheeled Warriors head Colin Wood said.  “To conclude, this is a great collaboration which surely will improve sports and will continue to grow for the foreseeable future.”
