Monte Cox, president and CEO of the newly formed Adrenaline MMA promotion, revealed today that he will be promoting an event, Adrenaline’s 2nd, on Sept. 6 in Moline, Ill.
“That’s basically the Quad Cities, home of the Miletich Fighting Systems,” Cox told MMAWeekly. “That show will include Tim Sylvia and Ben Rothwell.”
Adrenaline, which was formed out of the ashes of the failed M-1 Global promotion, will be holding it’s debut event on June 14.
Cox also elaborated on his decision to allow Tim Sylvia to fight Fedor Emelianenko even though the famed Miletich product is under contract with Adrenaline.
“We signed Tim Sylvia to Adrenaline. That’s a great sign for us. Then the Affliction thing comes along, what am I supposed to do? Tell Tim that he can’t fight the No. 1 fighter in the world in one of the biggest fights ever? I’m not gonna tell him that. Why, just because I have a contract for him to fight for Adrenaline? We’re not going to do that stuff.”
