Pancrase hit a huge milestone just 2 weeks ago. They hit their 300th event in their numbered series. Pancrase was the first MMA promotion in the world. They held their first even on September 21st, 1993. They have not stopped showing the best martial artists that Asia has to offer. Fighters who started in Pancrase have gone on to become stars in every MMA organisation throughout the world. This includes adding over 120 athletes to the world renowned UFC.
