Absolute Championship Berkut are set to return to the United Kingdom once again following their first show in Glasgow on Oct. 1.
A source close to the promotion revealed the news to The Sprawl.
ACB, a Russian promotion, made their UK debut recently at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland with ACB 47: Braveheart. The show was exciting throughout with 20-fights taking place. The show played host to big UK MMA names such as: Gavin Hughes, John Maguire, Ed Arthur, Daniel Crawford, Jake Bostwick, Danny Mitchell, Norman Parke, Ryan Scope, Saul Rogers and Robert Whiteford.
A source close to the promotion revealed that ACB are set to hold a show in Manchester in March of 2017. ACB have already been in contact with a number of fighters.
There was quite the buzz leading up to ACB’s first show in the UK, but the turnout, and response on the night was not great. Throughout the night, social media users mocked ACB for the amount of empty seats in the SSE Hydro.
Manchester is a different market than Glasgow so ACB will be hoping the turn out is much better this time around.
