The next big European fight card is only a few short weeks away, taking place on May 1st in Budapest, Hungary. The card will be promoted by dynamo fight promotion Fight Code, who much like It's Showtime and Ultimate GLORY have stepped up in 2011 as serious contenders in the realm of high-end kickboxing.
This is a continuation of Fight Code's "Dragon Series." The Dragon Series is Fight Code's 72.5kg tournament (primarily 70kg/MAX fighters), where we've seen such fighters as Yoshihiro Sato, Armen Petrosyan, Dzabar Askerov, Giorgio Petrosyan and Cosmo Alexandre participate.
Fight Code released the card for the event earlier in the week, and it is shaping up to look like a strong event.
