Barcelona vs Madrid: Soccer rivalry comes to MMA for Combate Classico on July 27

What do you get when you combine some good old fashioned fisticuffs with one of the most historic soccer match ups between two of the best clubs in the entire world?

One heck of a weekend!

Combate Americas has partnered with Relevent Sports to produce “Combat Clasico” on Thurs., July 27, 2017, in Miami, Florida, featuring fighters from Madrid and Barcelona going at it to keep with the theme of the “El Clasico” — the much-celebrated soccer match up between Barcelona FC and Real Madrid, which goes down on July 29, 2017, in Miami.

“Relevent Sports is thrilled to partner with Combate Americas,” said Relevent Sports Chairman Charlie Stillitano. “Combate Clasico promises to be another must-see event in the lead up to El Clasico Miami at Hard Rock Stadium.”

“We are excited to be working with Relevent Sports and the International Champions Cup to bring the Combate Americas brand of electrifying, professional Hispanic MMA action to Miami,” said Combate Americas CEO and UFC co-founder Campbell McLaren. “This promises to be a phenomenal week of live sports and music, culminating in a historic showdown between the world’s two biggest soccer powerhouses.”

Prior to Leo Messi (Barcelona FC) and Cristiana Ronaldo (Real Madrid) going head-to-head on the pitch at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Abner “Skullamn” Lloveras of Barcelona — who is a Spanish Olympic boxing tournament Gold Medalist — will face off against Javier Fuentes of Madrid in the main event of “Combates Clasico.”

The “Combate Clasico” live MMA event will be but just a taste of the week-long festivities going down in Miami as part of International Champions Cup presented by Heineken.

“Combate Clasico” airs live in the U.S. on Azteca America at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT, with a replay of the event airing the following night, Friday, July 28 on TV Azteca in Mexico.

Tickets for “Combate Clasico” are on sale online at Ticketon.com. Furthermore, additional matchups for “Combate Clasico” will be announced soon. For more information on El Clasico Miami fans can visit elclasicomiami.com and internationalchampionscup.com.
