No Holds Barred: Mark Pavelich on MFC and MMA 

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again speaks with the outspoken and passionate Mark Pavelich, the owner and president of the mixed martial arts company, the Maximum Fighting Championship (MFC).

Their next event is Maximum Fighting 25: Vindication at the Edmonton Expo Centre at Northlands in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It will be held Friday, May 7, and will be televised on HDNet.

Besides discussing this show, we focused on why MFC has remained such a successful promotion over the years. In a young business littered with failed companies, clueless money marks, and ruthless parasites, that is an exceptional accomplishment, especially for a family business like MFC.

In a lengthy and animated interview, we discussed the overall state of mixed martial arts and why it must be looked at as a sport. We both praised athletes like MFC lightweight champion Antonio McKee, who is unbeaten in over seven years. We examined the crucial relationship between MFC and HDNet, and how many who claim to be in the mixed martial arts media fail to report on and analyze properly this sport and business. Mark Pavelich also explained the plans for expansion of MFC in both Canada and the U.S., and much more.
