Draka 15 – U.S. Debut

The sport of draka has been around for more than two decades, and has been the focal point of 14 major events overseas. But on the final day of May, it makes its U.S. debut with Draka 15 at the Richmond Coliseum. Draka has similar rules to unified fighting or mixed martial arts, but with one main difference: there’s a 30-second time limit that starts as soon as competitors hit the canvas. If the fight does not reach its finish during those 30 seconds, both competitors must return to their feet to continue the fight. Such a rule keeps the action moving, and effectively prevents fighters from stalling or cuddling up for a nap while on the mat.

During Draka 15, these rules will govern several matches on a card packed with nearly 15 bouts. In the main event, hometown fighter Mike Wade will battle top Russian bruiser Andre Koshkin at a catchweight of 175 pounds. Prior to that showdown, Hampton Roads native George Sheppard will trade punches and party punch recipes with David Derby under draka rules. The evening will showcase several of the area’s up-and-coming talents, including the pro debuts of middleweight fighters J.P. St. Louis and Scott Noble. Amateur MMA action begins at 4:30 p.m., with the main event bell set to ring at 6:30 p.m.
