This red red red underground nightclub can be found underneath the old Specters. The club occupies a giant basement divided into twenty-some seating sections and a small dancefloor in front of the DJ booth. Pride of place goes to the full-size UFC-size octagon in the middle of the room. The tables closest to the cage, where the minimum spend is 2,000rmb, are less than a meter from the mesh. They usually have two or three fights on Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Thursday to Saturday can have as many as four to six fights starting at 9pm. They do boxing and BJJ — no MMA ("too violent!") — and another category described as "free-fighting." The screens around the club show previous fights, including one with full-contact medieval armor guys. Fighters come from clubs around town. They charge entry during fights.
