6 months on from announcing he was going to train for a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA ) fight, poker pro & La Sunset GPL Team Member Olivier Busquet will be fighting Mexican poker pro JC Alvarado tonight, in Vegas.
The fight will be held at Syndicate MMA in Las Vegas at 6pm local time. Tickets will be sold for $20 at the door and all proceeds will go towards One Drop — a charity that helps to tackle the water crises on a global level.
For those of you who can’t make it to Vegas to see the fight live, a live stream has been set up, which you can watch here, so that no one misses out on the action:
