Shamrock FC 342

Where: Kansas City, Missouri, at the Ameristar Casino

When: Saturday, 12.03.2022 at 8:00 PM ET 

Promotion: Shamrock Fighting Championships 

U.S. Broadcast: FITE 

One of Kansas City’s most prominent traveling MMA promotions returns on December.3 with another action-packed night full of combat sports goodness. 

While Shamrock FC is a professional MMA company based in St. Louis, Mo, it has provided fight fans with a combat sports experience that often recruits fighters from Kansas State and regularly travels to the surrounding areas of Missouri. 

The company was founded in 1998 to assist the development of young fighters in Missouri and surrounding areas. Their first-ever event was a sell-out and has promoted events around the Midwest ever since.

During a 20-plus-year tenure, Shamrock FC caught the attention of Scott Coker, former president of Strikeforce and current Bellator MMA promoter. Top-performing stars from the Shamrock FC roster have signed with Bellator, such as Zak Bucia, Bobby Brents, Rudy Bears, Jordan Howard, and Rebecca Ruth.  

Shamrock FC 342 has yet to realize its scheduled bouts for its early December event. Be sure to check back for more information.

Since its partnership with UFC Fight Pass, FAC has gained notable viewership from MMA fans and has provided many up-and-coming fighters for Dana Whites’s Tuesday Night Contender Series and the UFC roster. 

There are a lot of Kansas sportsbook promo codes for these matches due to the company’s popularity and the growing sports betting interest in Kansas, Missouri, and the Midwest region of the United States. 

Undefeated prospect Gauge Young (5-0) will headline FAC 17, and former UFC women’s flyweight contender Gina Mizany will compete in the evening co-main event. Sportsbooks will release betting lines for FAC 17 one or two weeks before the event. 

In support of rising talent, the preliminary cards at FAC events will often host amateur bouts, which are guaranteed to deliver high-intensity MMA combat as the youth of the sport fight toward their dream of becoming professional fighters.
