Time for another MATRIX MOMENT! We are sure many of you remember Matrix Fights 3 w/Army vs. Marines featuring Brylan Van Artsdalen. The atmosphere was insane, as was the fight. Brylan will be back in the Matrix cage this Friday night vs. Steve McCabe. Brylan vs. Steve will be an action-heavy fight that could be as good -- if not better -- than the fight we have linked below. If you have never been to a Matrix event before and want to get an idea of what you're in store for this Friday at the PA National Guard Armory, we highly recommend you watch this fight!
Rise and shine! It's almost time for Matrix 9! How many of you remember Jesus Martinez's sweet submission from Matrix 7? See Chavo headline Matrix 9 vs. LeVon Maynard this Friday and re-live his big win by watching the video below

Hyperbole and catchphrases can only take you so far in the fight promotion game. At the end of the day, it's all about the FIGHTS and the FIGHTERS! No one cares about corporate branding/company news (except for promoters, owners and investors) -- as FANS we all started watching fights for the excitement and entertainment that they generate. MATRIX FIGHTS has put on eight events over the years and some of the best area fights, KOs, and submission have taken place on our cards.... Check out our latest YouTube commercial by Mike Bickings that highlights some of the great action. How many of you remember the LeVon Maynard vs. Matt Makowski from MATRIX FIGHTS 1? Or Anthony Morrison's insane KO against Nick Gonzalez? Or the awesome Brylan VanArtsdalen vs. Julio Rosario/Army vs. Marines showdown? And who could forget Munah Holland vs. Carina Damm? So many great fights and so much great action is what Matrix Fights is known for and we expect some new Matrix Moments to be made this Friday! Buy your tickets now at www.MatrixTickets.com or via phone at 215.609.8617. See you this Friday!
Even though it's Sunday and not Monday, in our mind, it's FIGHT WEEK! Very excited for the return of MATRIX FIGHTS this Friday night. It will be the ONLY show in PA that night -- which wasn't the case at one point. We are real excited to see all the fights on the show, including Jesus Martinez vs. LeVon Maynard; the homecoming of Will Martinez as he takes on Andres Jeudi of Team Siyodtong; Brylan VanArtsdalen vs. Steve McCabe; and Andreas Spang vs. J.A. Dudleyand MUCH MORE! Tickets are still on-sale and can be purchased at www.MatrixFights.com or at www.MatrixTickets.com
We wish Matrix Fights had a "Black Friday Sale" to advertise for Matrix 9 on Dec. 5. But we don't because we're already giving fight fans of the Delaware Valley our best pricing we can afford to give. With tickets starting as low as $30, we're already giving fans the best value in local MMA in the region. Where else can you get a good seat and still see Bellator and Strikeforce veterans as well as future UFC fighters all on the same card? Even fighters who aren't normally big ticket sellers are telling me they are having no trouble selling tickets for our show and they attribute it to the ticket price. There aren't very many tickets left but you can still purchase them at www.MatrixTickets.com.
Tickets still available for MATRIX FIGHTS 9 on Dec. 5 at the PA National Guard Armory. Order online at www.MatrixTickets.com or www.MatrixFights.com. You can also buy your tickets in person at Martinez BJJ in Northeast Philly; Daddis Fight Camps in South Philly; Balance Studios in Center City; UFC Gym in Springfield, PA; and Grindhouse MMA at the Aquatic and Fitness Center in Feasterville, PA.
Former WBC NSBC boxing champion Pawel Wolak will not be making his professional MMA debut at Matrix Fights 9 on Dec. 5 as previously scheduled.
Matrix officials were informed by Wolak’s management this morning that he has been forced to withdraw from the event due to injury.
According to Wolak’s management, Wolak was training at Ricardo Almeida’s gym last Tuesday and hurt his back while sparring with UFC fighters Frankie Edgar and Edson Barbosa....
Wolak attempted to train through the injury with the intent of fighting Dec. 5 at less than 100% but the injury was not improving and the pain and discomfort only manifested the more he trained.
Fighter safety is the top priority for Matrix Fights so we support Wolak’s decision to withdraw and we would like to wish him a speedy recovery.
We knew that an injury to one of our featured performers was a possibility and as such, we added fights last week featuring former Bellator MMA tournament finalist Andreas Spang vs. former regional heavyweight champion J.A. Dudley and an amateur bout for the 215 MMA Super Welterweight Title between William Green and Paul Sims.
