The MIMMA Season 2 Finale is set for this Saturday (Oct. 25) and will be headlined by a fight between former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight Will Chope and venerable wrestling standout Matt Pellino (preview here). It will be streamed live on www.mimmalive.tunetalk.com, meaning that fans all over the world can watch this headliner -- as well as the entire fight card -- for free.

The MIMMA Season 2 Finale is set for Stadium Negara in Kuala Lumpur and will see the culmination of the tournament which has been ongoing since earlier this year as the eight season two winners meet the inaugural champions with around $50,000 worth of prize money on the line.
Episodes from the earlier stages of the tournament are currently being shown all across Asia on AXN every Saturday night but fans who miss the action or don't have access to the channel can catch up on all of it at www.mimmalive.tunetalk.com.
