The Philadelphia mixed martial arts scene has been on fire as of late and Art of War Cagefighting (AOWCF) is an integral part of the reason. AOWCF, owned and operated by Philadelphia native Mike Bickings, has been running events in the Northeast since April 2017 and was the early home to UFC veterans Andre Petroski, Chris Daukaus, and Kyle Daukaus.
The promotion recently announced 2-night extravaganza taking place at the brand new Live! casino and hotel in South Philly. All Star Weekend 3, the company’s largest show to date, is set to feature undefeated heavyweight Patrick “The Brick” Brady, a prospect that the UFC has eyes on.
