On Friday night FEN MMA Federation held an exclusive fight night event at the Gdynia arena called FEN 17 Baltic Storm. Polsat Sport broadcasted the event live.
FEN was founded by Pawel‚ Jozwiak and they held their first event in Wroclaw in 2013, since then the brand has gone from strength to strength and now has a big following thanks to the partnership with Polsat Sports.
This was my first live MMA event in Poland and I was really impressed by the production, the fighters and the brand.
Locals among the fighters
The card for the evening of FEN 17 Baltic Storm was stacked and it was good to see local lads from Gdansk and Gdynia amongst the fighters. They bought with them a good following which made for a good atmosphere.
I hope we see more live MMA in the Tricity over the coming months leading up to the UFC event in October.
