Retired Olympic silver medalist and UFC veteran Mark O. Madsen announced on Monday that he’s launching his own MMA organization called Dominance Fighting Championships.

The first card is confirmed for September 21 at the K.B. Hallen in Copenhagen, Denmark.

“We want to bring world class entertainment to the heart of Copenhagen and create shows worthy of Las Vegas,” Madsen said during a press conference on Monday. “We believe there’s a market, and that we, in Europe, deserve this entertainment as well.”

Madsen plans to have local fighters on the card but he also plans on bringing in athletes from all over the world, including the Scandinavian countries.
