After a long period of absence due to the health crisis, MMA is preparing its first major live event on 9 July at 8.30pm in Europe's largest indoor venue.

Once banned in France, MMA now enjoys a new status as a fully fledged, legalized and regulated sport. For its comeback, a new French professional MMA promotion has been formed: the Hexagone MMA roster, composed of international and national athletes who want to benefit from greater visibility. This new organisation aims to create a complete season around 10 events per year in France and in the French overseas territories as soon as the health conditions allow it.

Information on ticketing, public reception and sanitary conditions for the Hexagone MMA event at Paris La Défense Arena will be announced from 9 June.

About Hexagone MMA

Hexagone MMA was created around the complementarity and expertise of Jérome Pourrut, Laurent Pourrut, David Rotschild and Orsat Zovko, specialists in combat sports, production and event organisation. It is thanks to the presence of the co-founder, Orsat Zovko, that Hexagone MMA will fly to Las Vegas in November 2022 to close the season within the "FIGHT DOME LAS VEGAS" network.
