Action Fight League Holding Audition for MMA Hopefuls

Attention big palookas dreaming of being the next Brock Lesnar! The Action Fight League wants to see if you have what it takes to enter the octagon at the Hard Rock Live. The AFL is hosting an MMA audition this Saturday at its North Miami Beach gym for aspiring mixed martial artists. If you are a fighter looking to break into the sport of Mixed Martial Arts this is your chance.

"This is an opportunity for fighters to get in front of the top local scouts and event promoters in South Florida," says AFL boxing trainer Luis Rodriguez. "We work with all the top training academies to find the cream of the crop. We want to help MMA grow in South Florida."


The Action Fight League has helped launch the careers of backyard sensations Rene "Level" Martinez and Dhafir Harris, aka Dada 5000. The AFL hosts MMA events at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood and works with some of the best fighter organizations in south Florida, including MMA Masters and American Top Team.

UFC veteran Wilson Gouveia will also hold a $40 seminar before the audition, which costs $20 to participate. "Just bring your gear and get ready to push yourself," Rodriguez says.

Action Fight League is located at 2148 NE 164th Street in North Miami Beach. For more information on the audition, call 305-454-0691.
