It is not often that a fight promotion can celebrate 50 shows at one location, but come Thursday, June 13th Fight Club OC will celebrate its 50th show inside The Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center. And the number 50 has a special meaning as the evening will start early at 6pm with 50 cent hot dogs and 50 cent drinks served inside our all new SUMMER PARTY PATIO.
On June 13th tables and chairs will be placed around the Summer Party Patio for fans to relax, enjoy their hot dogs, have a drink, or smoke a cigar before the show begins. The Hangar doors will be open all the way to unveil not only our Cigar Lounge, but an area to get your photo taken with our Tecate Ring Card Girls and a place for fans to test drive the latest Super73 Electric Motorbikes. Even better, Super73 has agreed to give away a Super73 Z-1 to one lucky Fight Club OC fan at our December 5th show, and all you have to do is enter to win at any Fight Club OC show.
