    MMA Expos Coming to the US


    PHILADELPHIA, PA - Oct. 20, 2009 - Mixed Martial Arts Expo, Inc., the original MMA fan expo launched in Toronto in 2005, announced today the company’s official entry into the US market under the management of a new USA subsidiary, Mixed Martial Arts Expo, LLC, a corporation registered in the state of Pennsylvania.

    With twenty years experience in the trade and consumer show business, MMA Expo president and martial artist, Gerald Chopik, is well-versed in delivering this type of event. “Over the past five years we resisted the urge and numerous requests to bring the event to the USA opting instead to refine our model, build our infrastructure and develop solid relationships with our suppliers and exhibitors. Not unlike MMA itself we invested the time in training, testing and tweaking before stepping up. And now we’re ready to expand into the US.

    In addition to Canadian events in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal, MMA Expo's 2010 USA schedule already includes events in Atlantic City and Philadelphia with additional locations to be announced shortly. MMA Expo Philadelphia takes place in January 9 -10 at the Valley Forge Convention Center and incorporates numerous combative sports events including Gi and No-Gi Grappling Tournaments with OTM and the popular Tokey Hill Challenge USA Karate Championships. Plans also call for a Pro-Am MMA Fight Night on the show floor, another first for MMA Expo.

    Come to Penn State! It'd be a huge hit with the fratboys.

    I'm really confused, this has been 4 years in my backyard and I never even heard about it. Too bad they don't merge it with Fan Expo (has a bunch of stuff like sci fi and anime and horror) because it has a great wrestling show and if they did an MMA show too it'd rule. I'd like to attend this.
