CHARLES MOORE OF CLARKSVILLE, TENNESSEE WINS THE "DAY IN THE LIFE OF AN MMA CHAMPION" SWEEPSTAKES – VIA THE UNDERGROUND!
To promote the film's release, film Producers offered fans the chance to live a day in the life of an MMA fighter. Thousands of men and women across the U.S. entered via the official Facebook page and by texting their entry from their mobile phones. Charles Moore was randomly selected by the Sponsors and was flown to Las Vegas to attend UFC 155, where Cain Velasquez defeated Junior Dos Santos in the rematch of the year. Sitting ringside with President and Co-Founder of TapouT, Dan "Punkass" Caldwell, Charles was seen on television from his ringside seat where he hung out with some of MMA's most famous celebrities, including Sirius radio personality "Scrape" and UFC Fighters Jim Miller and Donald Cerrone. What was it like to hang VIP-style next to celebs including Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis?
"It was the opportunity of a lifetime," says TapouT's Dan "Punkass" Caldwell. To go backstage, attend the weigh-ins, meet the stars of MMA, and get one-on-one coaching from real MMA fighters is a dream come true. Charles is a huge MMA fan – exactly the type of person we hoped would win!"
Says Charles Moore: "The whole trip was insane. I kept asking myself… is this really happening? And it was!" The Sweepstakes was co-promoted by MiddleEasy, Sherdog, MMA.TV, and MixedMarialArts.com. Charles learned about the Once I Was A Champion Sweepstakes while getting his daily MMA update on The Underground.
