Registration for Naga Wrestle Mania-7 and X-1 fight night to commence on Sept 1


Kohima, August 30: Registration for NagaWrestleMania-7 (King Of The Ring Series 2018) and X-1 Fight Night (Mixed Martial Arts) will commence simultaneously from September 1 2018 at 3E Office, Dzevi Building (2nd Floor) Opposite UBC, Near Kohima Local Ground North Gate.
The two events are part of the Combat Sports Festival to be organised by 3E Nagaland, scheduled from October 22 to 27 at Kohima Local Ground Khuochiezie.
Another event of the said festival will be Nagaland Taekwondo League which will be organised by Nagaland Taekwondo Association (NTA) for which registration and event details will be announced by NTA.
The format of competitions will be as follows –
NagaWrestleMania 7 (King Of The Ring Series 2018) would be held on October 23 and there will be two categories – Lightweight (74 Kg & Below) and Heavyweight (Above 74 Kg) but unlike previous years, only preliminary rounds will be conducted on category basis and without going into category individual rounds, the last 16 wrestlers in both categories will be grouped together for the Round of 32 (16+16) to vie for the King Of The Ring Championship with the following cash prizes – Losing 16 – Rs. 3,000 each, Losing 8 – Rs. 5,000 each, Losing 4 – Rs. 8,000 each, 4th place – Rs. 15,000, 3rd place – Rs. 30,000, Runners-up – Rs. 60,000, King Of The Ring 2018 – Rs. 1,20,000 and Championship Belt.
This change in format is to be effected since it was observed that the gruelling category championships often led to injury-related absence in the all-important King Of The Ring Championship which became a disappointment for wrestlers as well as wrestling fans. Moreover, the new format will ensure that the event winds up in a single day which is sure to go well with the spectators.
International, in short called is a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) event that would be held on October 26 and 27. First night will be X-1 Fight Night featuring amateur fighters drawn from open registration whereby well performing fighters will be identified for title fights in upcoming x-1 events, apart from medals and gifts; Second night will be X-1 Championship Night featuring already registered/ranked fighters vying for championship titles in different weight classes.
