Rise FC 6 cancelled

March 9th, 2020

Dear Rise FC Community,
Many of you may already be aware of the growing risk and concern surrounding the Coronavirus
[COVID-19]. With reference to monitoring by PHAC and the CDC, and to prevent harm to the health of
our fighters, coaches, fans and staff, it is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of Rise FC
6, previously scheduled for April 4th, 2020.

Please be aware that we do not take this cancellation lightly. We understand that our athletes have
prepared for months ahead of this event, spending countless hours in dedication to the sport which they
love. However, we feel strongly that rescheduling is in the best interests of all parties involved given the
recent cancellations of ONE Fighting Championship and other major sporting events around the world.

Rise FC prides itself on building a safe and reliable platform on which it’s fighters can excel. To that goal,
we cannot neglect the risk associated with a cancellation of venue or further spread of the COVID-19
Virus within our community. Please continue to follow us on social media for updates regarding a larger
event planned for June 6th, which will incorporate fights rescheduled from April 4th fight card.
