IndieSolo is thrilled to partner with Pete Rodley, one of the leading pioneers in MMA event promotions, to become the official music provider of Freedom Fight 2008. Johnny says “this partnership could not have been timelier for our company and artists. Shortly after we launched the Internet’s first music section dedicated to Mixed Martial Arts, we were approached by Rodley to provide the sound and music behind Freedom Fight 2008 using our pool of exceptional independent metal artists” Being a part of a reputable and exciting organization like Freedom Fight is as real as it gets for our artists.
IndieSolo’s metal artists will now have the platform and the outlet to promote their music worldwide in what is becoming the fastest growing spectator sport on the planet.

When you have bands telling you they are writing songs specifically for this sports genre now, you just know their creativity and hunger will translate in a whole new experience for Freedom Fight fans”
