Aggressive Combat Championships to Give Us a Glimpse of the Future

The UFC may be providing us with an installment on Fuel TV Saturday afternoon, but those of us in New York City that evening will get a chance to glimpse the future courtesy of the Aggressive Combat Championships.  The venue is the Elks Lodge on Queens Boulevard (82-22 Queens Boulevard, to be exact), the start time is 7:00pm, and what's on tap are a slew of amateur Muay Thai, Combat Jiu-Jitsu and Submission Grappling matches.  ACC's raison d'etre has been to provide a platform for aspiring fighters to leap into competition, and with about dozen shows in Upstate New York and on Long Island under their belt, the promotion is obviously doing something right.  Still on the fence?  The consider this: fight fans who show up on Saturday will get to see in action a bunch of young bucks who could very well be rising stars in MMA this time next year (in fact, ACC is planning an amateur MMA event in NYC for February).  Camps to be repped include:
  • Team Renzo Gracie
  • Phil Dunlap's Advanced Fighting System
  • Edge Hoboken
  • Rudy's Boxing
  • LA Boxing - Norwalk
  • Animals MMA
  • Carmine Zocchi BJJ
