Grant Brothers MMA hosts summer BBQ with Chuck Liddell

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

When the Iceman cometh to your MMA gym, you know you’ve hit the bigtime.

That must be how the Grant Brothers Boxing and MMA Gym feels these days. In less than two years, the training facility has become one of Canada’s best and brightest. The likes of Gray Maynard, Mark Bocek, Dan Hardy, Roy Nelson and Claude Patrick have stopped by to train and chat. Fighters like Sean Pierson and Wagnney Fabiano train there.

And now, UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell will co-host a summer barbecue this Saturday, August 27 at the gym, located at 4884 Dufferin Street, unit 6 in Toronto, Ontario. The event runs from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Want a free autograph or photo with the former longtime UFC light heavyweight champion? Liddell is available until 7:30 p.m. Then, he’ll hold a press conference at the barbecue to make a major announcement. From 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., he’ll make himself available for one-on-one interviews on a first-come, first serve basis.

If hanging with Chuck Liddell isn’t your cup of tea (yeah, right), the Grant Brothers summer barbecue has plenty more to offer. Rockstar Energy and GP8 Water will be on hand to provide free drinks and Headrush Clothing will give away free clothing.

Barbecue guests will also get their shot at some cool prizes. Signing up for the gym enters you in a draw for a trip to Las Vegas; entering the GP8 Fitness challenge also qualifies you for prizes.

The fun doesn’t end at 9:00 p.m. For all the UFC fans out there, Grant Brothers MMA will screen UFC 134: Silva versus Okami live and free. The event will feature lots of Brazilians – including Muay Thai legends Anderson Silva and Shogun Rua.
