Once upon a time, Winnipeg was a hotbed for Combat Sports. Kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA promotions strived here, and the Canadian Fighting Championship was the best Combat Sports Promotion to come out of Winnipeg.
Launched on February 6 2009, CFC first promoted hybrid events, with Professional Kickboxing and MMA in a new 24 foot MMA Ring. In 2010 CFC purchased a new 30 foot Circle Cage, moved to an all MMA format, and in 2013 CFC held it’s last event.
During it’s run, Canadian Fighting Championship promoted the top Winnipeg Pro fighters, had some of the biggest live crowds in Canadian MMA, and promoted many fighters that went back and forth to UFC. CFC promoted fighters like John Makdessi, Gerald Meerschaert, and Sergio Pettis before they made it to the UFC. The production value at CFC events was at the top of the Canadian fight promotion game, and CFC always pleased the live crowd.
All professional combats sports in Manitoba, including all Kickboxing and MMA, are regulated by the Manitoba Combative Sports Commission.
