Emmy Award Winning host and MMA personality Jordan “Jay” Adams will join actor, producer and MMA fighter Hawk Younkins cage-side to call the action. Jay stated, “House of Fame is really going all out for their inaugural event. They are doing a lot of things right. Partnering with the Jacksonville Sports Council is huge and their relationship with the city of Jacksonville is probably the best promotion-city relationship I have seen in the sport.” He went on to say that “We are excited to help launch House of Fame across all of our television network platforms.”

UFA is a one hour MMA and Entertainment program that broadcasts to over 100 million homes and sports establishments, airing internationally on HBO Plus, nationally on DIRECTV, Dish Network and ATT U-Verse and locally on ROOT SPORTS, Comcast SportsNet Chicago, SportsNet New York, Tuff TV and Untamed Sports TV.

HOF MMA recently announced the launch of its new franchise, the first Professional MMA Franchise of its kind to be established in the United States. The fight organizations highly anticipated first Pro-MMA event is this Saturday. According to HOF MMA Executives, their organization represents a historic paradigm shift in the MMA world. House of Fame MMA is modeled after traditional U.S. based Professional franchises and leagues such as the NFL and MLB, and is poised for National expansion to proliferate the first MMA League of its kind in the world. The 12 bout fight card features some of Florida’s top MMA talent.

Hard-hitting heavyweights Kenneth ‘Deuce’ Garner and Matt ‘The Attack’ Kovacs will be headlining the event. Garner (12-6), a Florida native, is a well-rounded fighter known for his explosive knock-out power. The former M-1 Selection Americas Heavyweight Champion plans to prove he is still a force to be reckoned with in the heavyweight division by impressively defeating Kovacs early on. This will not be an easy feat!

Kovacs, who brings a solid wrestling game to the cage, is as solid on the ground as he is on his feet. Like Garner, he is also known for his devastating striking ability. Kovacs recently clinched a first round submission victory over Nate Cook at CWC 14 and picked up an impressive unanimous decision victory over former UFC Champion Maurice Smith in 2013. Kovacs plans to do what it takes to defeat Garner and add another impressive win to his record. *Full ‘New Dawn’ Fight Card Line-up:
