“We were very happy to organize such an interesting event. We would like to thank all the fighters for their performances, marshals – for their patience and fairness and, of course, all the viewers that came to support the fighters and made the perfect atmosphere. There is always a place for some changes and improvements. And we have to sit down and talk about our impressions with the org. team and ask participants and viewers for their opinions.
