Makhachkala, March 15, 2016. On April 2, Kaspiysk Sports Palace named after Ali Aliyev will host the MMA tournament “Cage Fighting Dagestan”. The tournament will be held under the aegis of the "Russian MMA Union" and Dagestan ministry for youth affairs.

One of the co-administrators of “Cage Fighting” promotional company Adam Zalov said that the preparations for the sport event had been completed by 70-80 percent.

"In the future, we certainly intend to grow, and we want to develop not only in Dagestan. After this tournament, we’ll hold a similar event in Astrakhan region. Both beginners and experienced fighters acting in other Russian organizations are welcomed to participate in the competitions.

The duel between Dagestani athlete Muslim Salikhov and the Venezuelan sportsman Ronnie Alexander is expected to become the main fight of the event. Unfortunately, Alexander pulled out the battle referring to his injury, and now we are seeking a new rival for Salikhov "- Zalov noted.

Another co-administrator of the promotion company “Cage Fighting” Farhad Khamdulaev noted that one of the main goals of the tournament is to support orphans going in for sport and to create conditions for them. "Broadly speaking, our promotional company was born with the idea to help the children. We visited children's home and discussed about what we could do for them. Besides, some sportsmen reduced their fees in aid of children's charity"- Khamdulaev said.

The head of Dagestan grappling federation Gadzhimurad Abdullayev, being one of the organizers of the tournament, resumed: "Sport teaches people to fight and to make their own way in life and orphans know about it like nobody else".
