UFC and The Ultimate Fighter veterans Shamar Bailey, Luke Zachrich and Tommy Hayden headline a star-studded Absolute Action MMA card, as the area’s premiere promotion returns to action on August 10th.

Luke Zachrich, a 12-2 pro, whose experience reached The Ultimate Fighter and Bellator MMA, will do battle with Justin Gamble, who has made a big name for himself in the Kentucky area.

Shamar Bailey, UFC veteran, locks horns with Tony Parker, whose last 7 victories all come by submission.

Tommy Hayden, a veteran of both the UFC and AAMMA, takes on the gritty M-1 Global vet Joshua Thorpe, in what will be Thorpe’s fourth fight in AAMMA in just over nine months.

In addition, Absolute Action MMA has multiple amateur title fights scheduled, in addition to an unprecedented FIVE women’s amateur MMA bouts.

Absolute Action MMA has been a mainstay in the Northern Kentucky area for the past several years, becoming a launching pad for fighters, having several combatants make their way to the UFC, Bellator MMA, Strikeforce, M-1, and even Fox’s “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show. Join us on August 10th as a raucous crowd watches several of our athletes make history.
