Kick Down MMA: It’s Not the Size of the Dog in the Fight

While the UFC has dominated mixed martial arts for the better part of the past two decades, believe it or not, there are a few other promotions that have managed to survive the tumultuous times that have accompanied MMA’s growing pains and even thrive to amass 100-plus events to their credit.

One such small, regional event is Colorado’s Kick Down MMA (formerly the Kickdown Classic). Owned and operated by Steve Alley, Kick Down MMA has never fallen into the traps that have snared so many other promotions that have tried become the next UFC.

Kick Down MMA has been a regional promotion from day one, offering an opportunity for fighters in the Rocky Mountain and Midwestern regions a venue to hone their chops and see if they’ve got what it takes to be among the best in the world.

In business since February of 2002 – only Ring of Fire can boast an earlier start in Colorado MMA – Kick Down has been a stop for several world-class fighters over the past decade. Fighters such as Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, Chris Camozzi, Trevor Prangley, Noah Thomas, and many others fought for Alley before moving on to places like the UFC, The Ultimate Fighter, Strikeforce, and World Extreme Cagefighting.

You may or may not one day know some of the names coming up on Kick Down’s April 7 event in Denver, but April 7 is still a milestone date in the promotion’s history none-the-less. That is the day that Kick Down MMA hits the century mark.

Having operated events in six states, Colorado has always been home for Kick Down MMA, and as such, they’re returning to their roots for the 100th event in the promotion’s history.

Kick Down MMA will never rival the UFC, but they don’t portend to. Kick Down MMA, at 100 events and beyond, intends to do what they do best, offer regional fighters an opportunity to compete in the sport they love and find out if they have what it takes to one day be in the UFC.
