TV actress and Muay Thai practitioner
“I’ve been to a few Muay Thai shows and The Main Event is by far the best. It’s really well organised, the entrances with the fireworks and dancers are great. I’ve never seen anything like it before, the promoters really know how to do things properly!”
WBO intercontinental boxing champion
“I was shocked at how many people attended the last The Main Event show, it was fantastic. The standard of fights was very good, you really get your money’s worth here. I'd tell anyone to make sure you get to your seats early so you don’t miss the opening fireworks display!”

“The Main Event is the stand-out show on the calendar for me outside of the UFC. The fights are very well matched and the venue is always packed to the rafters. Great atmosphere and a top day out. I highly recommend it to any combat sports fan!”
