Adrenaline MMA, which rose out of the ashes of M-1 Global, is led by Monte Cox and features a number of fighters under his management from the Midwest.
The first card will be headlined by former UFC title contender Jeff Monson taking on Chicago policeman Mike Russow at the Sears Centre in Chicago on June 14.
Noticeably missing from the inaugural card are the two biggest stars under contract with Adrenaline MMA. Former UFC champion Tim Sylvia and former IFL star Ben Rothwell are booked to fight on the Affliction "Banned" event on July 19. However, they will compete at the second Adrenaline MMA event, taking place on September 6 in Moline, Illinois.
