MMA coming to Belleville

A major mixed martial arts event is coming to the Quinte Region and should have a big impact on the community.

Discipline MMA will hold its inaugural event at Belleville’s Yardmen Arena on April 27.

At a press conference this afternoon, Discipline President Dave Mair announced $5 from each ticket sold will be donated to the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial Fund in Quinte West.

Bay of Quinte Tourist Council President Ryan Williams says the economic spin-off for the region could amount to about a million dollars.

Tickets are available from the Yardmen Arena Box Office or www.bellevillebulls.com.
