MMA fighters tackling BC’s best at WarPath V

Local mixed martial arts fighters highlight the card for WarPath MMA V, taking place May 11 at the Tzeachten Community Centre.

Local mixed martial arts athletes are ready for three rounds of glory as WarPath MMA V goes May 11 at 7 p.m. at the Tzeachten Community Centre.

The Revolution Fight Team of Jamie Siraj, Griffin Steele and Bryce Kilpatrick tests themselves against other MMA gyms.

Abbotsford’s Mamba MMA is sending a squad, along with Suitela MMA (Surrey), Mata Leao (Kamloops), CV Boxing (Comox Valley) and Wolf’s Den (North Vancouver).

Matchmaker and event promoter Darwin Douglas is the owner of the Revolution Martial Arts.

The Cheam First Nations member is also a professional MMA fighter.

He created WarPath MMA so local fighters would have the opportunity to develop their careers and lead healthy and fit lives.

Of the fighters on the WarPath MMA V card, Douglas is most excited about Siraj, a young hopeful who attends Sardis secondary school. Siraj will be taking on CV Boxing’s Johnny Banford.

Local fighters train under Revolution Martial Arts coaches, including Harley Chappell (head Brazilian Jiu Jitsu coach), Douglas (Muay Thai kickboxing), Sean O’Halloran (mixed martial arts), Americo Pena (wrestling) and Mike Docett (boxing).

Tickets for MMA WarPath V are $35 and $75 each.

They are available for pickup in person at Revolution Martial Arts (8030 Enterprise Drive) or online at www.warpathmma.com.
