The Maximum Fighting Championship, one of the eminently exciting brands of mixed martial arts to ever be at the forefront of the sport, is formally announcing it is for sale.

Mark Pavelich, Owner & President of the MFC, put more than 15 years into the business and grew it from a Canadian original on the MMA scene to a frontrunner in North America and ultimately into one of the most prominent shows in the world.

“The Maximum Fighting Championship was my passion and my labor of love. It was not just an MMA show. It was a professional sports organization,” said Pavelich.

The Maximum Fighting Championship brought top-level attention and profile to its athletes. Every one of the MFC’s champions progressed to the UFC, and more than 50 of its fighters competed at the highest levels of the sport. Included in the MFC’s extensive list of notable athletes are Patrick Cote, Jason MacDonald, Benson Henderson, Sam Alvey, Paul Daley, Anthony Birchak, Ryan McGillivray, Tom Watson, Roger Hollett, Antonio McKee, Thales Leites, Emmanuel Newton, and Douglas Lima.

Man, I didn't even realize they hadn't done a show since 2014... I wonder what assets they have aside from their name and custom ring.

MFC was always a great promotion. They had some excellent talent.

You down to split it P$?

I miss MFC. It's a shame they fell on hard times. IMO they were Canada's most entertaining promotion for a number of years.

They proved ring can hold many great fights and produce many great talents despite the dogshit unified rules.


MFC was fun i don't really see anyone relavent buying them unless zuffa feels the need to bolster its library of fights.

To my knowledge their roster is depleted....i don't see a ton of value other the video library.....

Maybe nick diaz should buy it and use his promoters license to put on ring events like he originally wanted to.

Viacom should buy them and add the fighters into the Bellator mix.
