CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The fastest growing sport in the world is returning to the EpiCentre, Charlotte's number one entertainment destination. Fight Lab Promotions presents EpiCentre Cage Fights II on Friday night, March 26, featuring 12 explosive mixed martial arts bouts at Pavilion.
 
Seven Fight Lab Titles will be decided on the card, including the Fight Lab Promotions undefeated HWT title holder - 6'5" 275-pound Jeremy Holm. Jeremy Holm made a huge impact at the EpiCentre Cage Fights I last October, knocking out Mont McMullens to become the first Fight Lab Heavyweight Champion. Now, Holm returns to the EpiCentre to defend the championship, and his perfect 7-0 record, in front of his hometown crowd.
 
"If you've never experienced live MMA, this is a perfect opportunity," says Kenny Letts, Fight Lab promoter. "The skill, precision and athleticism displayed by these fighters are incredible to see in person. Even though it is a fiercely aggressive competition, there is also a great camaraderie and sportsmanship between the fighters and their camps, which is refreshing.
 
"Pavilion at the EpiCentre is a perfect venue for MMA as well. EpiCentre Cage Fights I in October was a huge success and created an overwhelming demand for more shows like it – the action, the music, the crowd and the location, right in the center of Charlotte's top entertainment venue – it makes for an unforgettable night. This is the first of four events Fight Lab Promotions will hold at the EpiCentre this year and we are proud to call the EpiCentre our home base."
 
EpiCentre Cagefights II goes down Friday night, March 26, at Pavilion at the EpiCentre, bell time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at just $40 and are available online at FightLabPros.com. Card subject to change.
 
After the final bell, fans are encouraged to head downstairs to Whisky River for the official post-fight after party to mingle with other fans and celebrate with the fighters.
 
Since debuting in 2009, Charlotte-based Fight Lab Promotions has quickly established itself as the premier mixed martial arts promotion in the Carolinas. Just last month, Fight Lab kicked off a busy 2010 schedule promoting a successful event for soldiers at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro, NC.
