Elyria OH. July 27, 2011 – Ohio’s premier amateur mixed martial arts promotion, Rocktagon MMA, recently announced that their highly anticipated Pro-Am series returns to Ohio on July 30 with ‘Elite 6 Pro-Am’.

Rocktagon MMA is coming off of a very successful event in Richmond, California. The amateur MMA event, ‘Battle on the Bay’, was the organizations first of many on the West Coast. According to Rocktagon MMA executives they couldn’t be happier with the results and are moving full steam ahead with their plans to expand nationally.
According to Rocktagon MMA CEO James Jeda, “This month marks a significant milestone for our organization and we couldn’t be happier. Not only did Rocktagon MMA successfully make its debut in the Western region on Saturday, our Pro-Am event returns to Ohio this weekend. In the span of one week Rocktagon MMA will be hosting MMA events on both coasts. It doesn’t get better than that! “
Jeda went on to say, “We are very excited about the future and have big plans to elevate Rocktagon MMA’s presence on a national level. We have big plans, plans that include bringing Rocktagon MMA’s Pro Series to the West coast by the end of 2011.”
