The gate has been opened. Fight fans around the world have been mesmerized by the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Pride Fighting Championship and King of the Cage. We now present to you America’s premiere promotion: Hook N Shoot! When Hook N Shoot promoter Jeff Osborne suggested the idea of an all-woman’s Mixed Martial Arts event, he was met with negative criticism. On April 13, 2002, the critics were instantly silenced with the help of 14 female fighters. With the world watching, Hook N Shoot became the first promotion in the world to sanction woman’s MMA with the help of the Shooto promotion in Japan. Spectators who showed up expecting “Foxy Boxing” and “catfighting” were stunned. The woman of MMA proved to be the athletes of tomorrow and delivered the ultimate in real fighting. Hook N Shoot broke new ground in the sport of MMA once again. The athletes came from around the world and turned the heads of fighting insiders, current fans and future spectators around the world.
