World Championship Fighting announces autograph session including a star studded lineup of UFC & Pride Fighting Veterans

World Championship Fighting is proud to announce a once in a lifetime opportunity for Mixed Martial Arts fans in the Boston area! As a thank you to all of our World Championship Fighting fans, we will be conducting a special autograph session to take place just before the start of our February 8th fight card. Fans with tickets for the night's action will have access to a special autograph session including the following UFC and Pride Fighting Veterans: Marcus “The Irish Hand Grenade” Davis; Kenny “KenFlo” Florian; Jorge “El Conquistador” Rivera; Alex “The Assassin” Karalexis; Sean “The Gladiator” Gannon; Tamden “The Barn Cat” McCrory and Murilo “Ninja” Rua.

UFC Fighters Marcus “The Irish Hand Grenade” Davis and Jorge “El Conquistador” Rivera are coming fresh off of wins from last Saturday's UFC 80 Rapid Fire event in Newcastle England. Davis finished his opponent Jess Liaudin by knockout at 1:04 of the very first round. For Davis, the win marks his sixth UFC win in a row and his 11th straight win overall. With his win Davis puts himself in line for a shot against a top five welterweight contender and a possible title shot.

Jorge “El Conquistador” Rivera scored a huge win over the highly touted Kendall Grove in a UFC Middleweight match-up. Rivera landed a punch early which hurt Grove and Rivera wasted no time in pouncing on his opponent en route to a devastating knockout at 1:20 of the very first round. With his win Rivera puts himself into the Middleweight title contention picture.

Local UFC Fighter and Lightweight contender Kenny “KenFlo” Florian will also be signing autographs on February 8th at the Shriners Auditorium. Florian is currently preparing for a fight with fellow local UFC fighter Joe Lauzon. Also participating in the autograph session is Boston's own UFC and WEC fighter Alex “The Assassin” Karalexis, UFC Fighter Tamden “The Barn Cat” McCrory, Pride Fighting veteran Murilo “Ninja” Rua and Internet legend Sean “The Gladiator” Gannon, the man who defeated street fighting icon Kimbo Slice.
