The date of January 31st, 2009 has been circled on the calendar of MMA fans across Canada. On that night, UFC Welterweight Champion Georges ‘Rush’ St-Pierre will be defending his title against BJ ‘The Prodigy’ Penn; in possibly the most anticipated rematch in UFC history. Even hockey won't matter as MMA fans across the country will be tuned to televisions watching this historic bout.

W1 MMA would like you to invite you watch this fight with W1 and their fighters; including former UFC Welterweight Champion Carlos ‘The Ronin’ Newton and his opponent for the March 28th bout in Gatineau, Nabil ‘The Thrill’ Khatib. This special UFC 94 Viewing Party will be at Liam Maguire’s in Ottawa, located at 1705 St. Laurent Blvd (at Innes Road). The UFC Viewing Party will include an autograph session with the W1 competitors prior to the show and the unveiling of the new W1 Cage Girls. There will also be a lot of giveaways and contests for great prizes including tickets to W1: INCEPTION on March 28th, 2009.


Before the big fights on Saturday night, W1 MMA will be hosting the W1 MMA: TRIALS at TEAM BUSHIDO MMA & FITNESS CENTER. The W1 MMA: TRIALS will be an opportunity for all fighters to show that they have what it takes to fight in the MMA cage. The participants will be split into groups with W1 fighters working with each participant and testing their skills. Confirmed to be participating as co-ordinators are Carlos Newton and Nabil Khatib.

Fighters who impress during the "W1 MMA: TRIALS" could potentially be offered fight contracts by W1 MMA with the possibility of being offered the chance to fight at W1: INCEPTION on March 28th, 2009.
