Three Canadian MMA organizations in Western Canada have merged to create the self proclaimed “single largest MMA organization in Canada”, named Aggression Fighting Championship.

Aggression MMA, Armageddon Fighting Championships, and AX Combat have now pooled their efforts in providing the best shows available to Canadian MMA fans under this new banner, which will now hold between nine and eleven fight events per year, with shows taking place in Edmonton and Calgary in Alberta, and Victoria, British Columbia – with expansion plans slated for the latter half of 2012.

The newly formed AFC will unveil its new branding shortly. Fight fans will get to see the new promotion in action at AFC 8 in Victoria on April 14th, AFC 9 in Edmonton June 8th, and AFC 10 in Calgary on June 15th. More details on these and upcoming events will be released shortly...

Why does every promotion have to be *insert name here* Fighting Championship? You aren't the UFC, quit trying to act like them by copying their logo and their name.

Thought the same thing plus Aggression FC just sounds awful in my opinion. Dream , Pride , Art Of War thats how you stick out from the crowd.

Technically, it was Pride Fighting Championships...but I know what you mean.

I liked Bas's reaction when Rogan asked him what he would do if he was in the meeting and they were to say, "We're thinking agression FC, what do you think?".

"I'd walk out of the room" was basically his response.

I love the concept of this move, much like the recently developed Asian network of MMA promotions. I think this helps give the international fight scene a chance to build up large, reputable, marketable promotions. There is a ton of upside to this, in my opinion, for the fighters and fans across the world.
