Every creature responds to danger with the same fight or flight reaction, which usually entails either delivering an uppercut to their opponents jaw or testing the speed of their shank’s ponies. Unfortunately, observing martial instincts isn’t as fun when it’s you doing the flying or fighting.

The first of its kind and Cape Town’s premier MMA event, Cape Fight League showcases the body-busting skills of some up and coming mixed martial artists in a showdown that’s slightly more professional than a knock-down-drag-out but just as fun to watch. The main event, a faceoff between South African MMA legend Chris Bright and Ian ‘Chucky’ Swart, is a rematch of their 2010 tussle at EFC Africa 3 and promises to be a spectacle of revenge-fuelled whooping; considering Chris Bright took out Swart with a Triangle choke in the first round, bruised pride probably abounds.Their epic encounter is joined by twelve other brawls in the Welterweight and Heavyweight categories, as well as two Extreme Striking events filled with body bruising excitement. Giving both amateur and professionals a chance to have at it at the Bellville Velodrome, it promises to be a better way to spend the evening than looking for the princess in another castle.
