MMA fight show Hombres de Honor 82 is held on Saturday February 11 in Madrid.

Quattro Macro Discotheque in Yunquera de Henares accommodates Hombres de Honor 82. In the main event Omar Santana (11-4-0) squares off with Javier Fuentes (8-3-0). The pair will challenge for the WKN Spanish national title. The 77 kg championship will go ahead at 5 x 5 minute rounds.

The WKN announced the development of MMA affiliate last December. As explained although the organization does not pretend of being a universal MMA promoter “such concept [WKN MMA] facilitates the progress of the international recognition for MMA competitors, contributing to their prominence towards their participation in the global MMA promotions”. Also a given purpose is an opportunity for athletes to “compete under the largest and renowned banner of the stand-up fighting sports, the WKN.”

As a result, in less than in two months the WKN MMA championship makes its debut as a headline event at Hombres de Honor 82. The undercard comprises six bouts. Imad Bourdermine is fighting Julio Cesar Girino. Lucas Silva is facing off Ova Sanchez. Alberto Vargas is taking on Cristian Castro while Aridane Romero is going up against Alejandro Santos. Also on the card Teto Terranosa vs Anderson Cruz and Dewis Junior vs David Munoz.

Since 1998 the WKN is a part of the International Vale Tudo Championship (IVC) in Brazil. The organization is the first in history to organize the bouts of the mixed martial arts concept on European continent.
