Wild Bill’s Fight Night on July 24 will have a stacked fight card featuring a main event for an NFC East Coast Championship, a co-main event between two Atlanta fighters who have absolutely hated each other for more than a year, a female pro MMA fight featuring one of Atlanta’s most powerful strikers — and MMA star and former belt holder Rich Franklin will be at Wild Bill’s to witness it all!
Rich Franklin, one of the world’s most dominant MMA fighters and the guy who possibly ended the career of Chuck Liddell, will be at Wild Bill’s for a meet-and -greet with all fans in the building. He’ll be signing autographs from 8:30 p.m. until midnight, but before that he’ll host a special Feast With the Beast at Wild Bill’s.
From 7 until 8:30 p.m., a private group of 50 people have the opportunity to have dinner with Franklin! For only $100 you get all-you-can-eat wings, soft drinks, a Wild Bill’s Fight Night T-shirt and a ticket in the first three rows for the fights that night! Also, make sure to bring a camera for photos and anything you want signed as you’ll have plenty of one-on-one time with Rich. You can sign up for this by visiting undisputedproductions.com.
