Reality Fighting TicketsWith roots that reach back to its very first event in 2002, Reality Fighting is New England’s longest-running MMA organization. Originally, Reality Fighting was known as Rhode Island Vale Tudo, an indication of a long-standing focus on submission grappling that has remained with the promotion to this very day. The promotion has always prided itself on being able to find young MMA talent throughout the Northeastern United States and give them a chance to prove themselves in front of wild and screaming crowds of combat fans. The Reality Fighting event serves mainly as a proving ground for local fighters, with many of its best eventually moving on to score lucrative contracts with larger MMA promotions like the UFC. Thus, a Reality Fighting event is an excellent place for fight fans to catch a glimpse at some of the rising stars of tomorrow.
