ighters and fans have this Saturday booked for Chilliwack's one and only WarPath Mixed Martial Arts on December 8th, 7pm at the Squiala Community Centre, 45005 Squiala Road. MMA continues to grow in popularity in Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley. WarPath MMA VIII has one of the most stacked cards to date and is expecting another sold out event.

Kultar "The Black Mamba" Gill is bringing his student, Dustin Parsons from his MMA gym in Abbotsford, BC. In an exciting Bantamweight division, Parsons, who has had many opponents pull out, is finally set to square off against Devon Glover who fights out of Fight Pit in Maple Ridge. Look out for these two to shine in their MMA debuts.

A very anticipated MMA debut by many local fans is Jody Blakeway, who will be fighting at a catch weight of 190lbs. In the co-main event the Featherweight Title will be decided. Starring in this collision, is Tyler Denniston vs Morgan "Mad Dog" Littlechild. Littlechild is on a six fight win streak, but both are eager to take home the Featherweight title belt.

In the main event of the evening, the Bantamweight Champion will be decided in a rematch everyone has wanted to see—TJ Woodman (3-2) from Avalanche MMA in the Yukon vs Jamie "The Gremlin" Siraj" (6-2) from Four Directions Fight Team in Chilliwack, BC. Siraj recently took a leap up in the competition ranking, winning via unanimous decision against Kirk Tse, the number 1 ranked bantamweight in BC. Siraj is on a five fight winning streak. Siraj plans to win this home title, and take it with him when he moves to TriStar in Montreal, Quebec, the famed MMA gym of Georges St. Pierre, All Star Coach Firaz Zahabi and former Chilliwack coach Kajan Johnson.

WarPath MMA will deliver a exciting night of match ups and excitement for the crowd in Chilliwack. Tickets are available online at www.warpathmma.com, at Four Directions Martial Arts at 8030 Enterprise Drive, Chilliwack BC or at Fuel Clothing at the Chilliwack Mall.
