With our 30th show looming, we at SNA HQ have been looking back at the last 10 years and the numbers behind what we’ve achieved in that time.
Here are some pretty interesting stats;
455 different MMA fighters and over 70 Kickboxing & Muay Thai competitors, with 13 of those athletes competing in more than one style in our cage over the years. Bringing the total of unique fighters across all three disciplines to at least 525 before we even start to think about the new blood readying themselves to put on a show at Shock N Awe 30.
In the last 10 years we’ve taken SNA to 5 different venues, brought at least 18 different nationalities together in the cage and matched over 500 bouts, presided over by top calibre referees, judges and commentators such as John Gooden, Rich Mitchell, David Lethaby and Ben Cartlidge.
MMA alone has served our fans with 143 TKO/KO victories and 170 submission wins, with 5 events not seeing the score cards once!
Our busiest fighters have been Owen Gayle & Elliott “Toy Boy” Hoye, with 11 fights apiece, closely followed by Joe Laurence in second with 10. Taking joint third place are James Brum and Matt Hughes with 9. Jade Barker, representing women’s competition, tops the table with 7 appearances.
The Shock N Awe cage has hosted UFC, Rizin and Bellator fighters, TUF competitors, commonwealth Judo and Wrestling medallists and Polaris grappling champions.
But the question now is with veterans and debutantes all vying for victory, who will make history in our 30th show?
