According to James Jefferson Founder of GPG, “We are very excited to be working with MUCF to execute our very first GPG infused fight event! We plan to use this first GPG event as a platform to give back to fight fans and also to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. After seeing the devastation of the recent hurricane, executives at GPG and MUCF unanimously agreed to stream the fights live, free of charge. We want to enable fight fans everywhere to tune in to this exciting fight event, despite their situation, especially those affected by Hurricane Sandy. We will also be encouraging viewers to donate to the Global Impact Disaster Relief Fund throughout the broadcast.”

The first 11 pro bouts on the ‘GPG Presents: MUCF Big Time Branson Rumble’ will stream live on MMAWEEKLY.com starting at 8pm CT.

Additionally, all 14 pro bouts will stream live on MSXN.tv and the MSXN Fight Night Smart Phone App.

“We know that there are thousands of fight fans on the East Coast that are currently without power, therefore we will also be streaming the fights live on Smart Phone’s everywhere through MSXN,” stated Jefferson. ”Fans that don’t have access to a computer, internet, or power, can still tune in and watch the fights if they have access to a smart phone. At GPG we will always go the extra mile to take care of the fighters and the fans.”

GPG is a fast-rising combat sports organization with a platform that enables elite fighters of all disciplines to showcase their skills on a global level. The GPG Worldwide Fight League was formed to create additional opportunities for fighters, while helping existing promotions grow the sport. GPG does not compete with existing fight promotions; instead they work with them by infusing their cards with elite GPG fight talent.

According to Tommy Tran, CEO of Midwest Ultimate Cage Fights, “We are extremely excited to partner with GPG. It is an honor to be aligned with an organization that shares the same common goals and that is committed to working with us to grow the sport! This is also the first time in history that fans can vote fighters onto a reality show directly from their seats during a live MMA event! It is very exciting! I anticipate a very action-packed, successful event. Fans won’t want to miss it!”
