On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again speaks with the owner and president of the Maximum Fighting Championship (MFC), Mark Pavelich.
Their next show will be MFC 28: Supremacy on Friday, February 25, at the River Cree Resort and Casino, just outside Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The main card will air live throughout North America on HDNet Fights.
In the main event, MFC veterans Ryan Jimmo and Dwayne Lewis will fight for the MFC light heavyweight title. In a lightweight bout, a rejuvenated Drew Fickett will face Matt Veach, who is replacing the injured Antonio McKee.
Our discussion with Mark Pavelich started off focusing on this card and branched out to examine the progress of MFC as an organization. MFC will very shortly be announcing their expansion into the province of Ontario, where mixed martial arts has only recently been allowed and sanctioned, and their plans to run numerous shows there. We also discussed that the athletic commission in Ontario is only permitting MMA fights in a cage and not a ring. MFC has thus far used a ring, and we discussed the issues related to that, as well as much more.
