We talked with Rob McIntyre, The Tattoo Cup organizer and the member of ?Waikato Armoured Combat Inc. about tournament’s summary and plans for future.
This strong, bearded man really enjoy his hobby and infects others with his enthusiasm!
Rob told that the tournament was organized successfully: “I’m satisfied with the arena and strong barriers. New Zeland fighters were very good! This year more visitors came comparing with previous years. This is a really good result. But we are waiting even more in future!”
It stands to mention that planned Night Pro-Fightings were canceled in a few days before the tournament. Rob explained: “Fighters didn’t show enough interest. We wanted this year to make pro-fights on fight night, but only 6 fighters entered. So, 3 fights was not enough to have a special night, that’s why we had pro-fight during tournament”.
When we asked Rob to tell about the star of The Tattoo Cup-2017 Sigrid Karlsson, he was all smiles: “She fought very aggressively against the guys, against the men, in 1×1 category. She had only attacked, hadn’t gone back, only forward!”
The main goal of The Tattoo Cup for the nearest times – to let the guests familiarize themselves with this tournament and its participants. Festival activities may divert attention from actually fights to other things. The organizers keep the idea of the festival for future.
HMBIA News would like to congrats all fighters, marshals and organizers with this successful spectacular event.
