Over the past two years, the MFC has made amazing strides including repeat sold out live events, and the signing of multi-fight broadcast deals with HDNet, the U.S.-based cable network created by famed entrepreneur Mark Cuban, owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks. The partnership with HDNet makes the Maximum Fighting Championship the only Canadian-based mixed martial arts organization with a live television deal.
The partnership between Feldman and the MFC is bound to bring in a wealth of new opportunities in the future.
“I’m very enthused and optimistic about the partnership with S.L Feldman & Associates”, says Mark Pavelich, Owner/President of MFC. “They bring decades of experience in live events, talent development, marketing and sponsorships to the table and that coupled with the explosive MFC business we envision an extremely successful collaboration.”
Jeff Craib, Senior Vice President at Feldman states, “We’re all very excited for this new joint venture with Mark. The MFC is flourishing, and our collective goal will be to continue to make inroads into further expanding the MFC business and its excellent and growing stable of world class fighters. Justin Sudds, Sr. Agent at Feldman states, “As SLFA continues to expand into many new areas of live entertainment, we’re thrilled to be working with Mark and his strong MFC business.”
S.L. Feldman & Associates (SLFA) is a leading full-service entertainment agency. With over 35 years of experience in artist representation, event services and corporate consulting. Feldman’s core business is talent representation, and its artist roster encompasses a wide array of internationally successful concert attractions as well as critically acclaimed up-and-coming talent. A team of 70-plus agents and staff work out of offices based in Vancouver and Toronto.
Feldman and Associates boasts an outstanding lineup of talent under its representation, such as The Tragically Hip and Hedley (see roster at www.slfa.com). The Maximum Fighting Championship is the first and only mixed martial arts organization working in partnership with Feldman and Associates.
Pavelich is not just a business owner, but also a pioneer in the world of mixed martial arts. The Maximum Fighting Championship was the first organization in Canada to host fully sanctioned shows outside of Quebec, and through his leadership the MFC is one of the very few mixed martial arts organizations to become a profitable business venture that is fully supported by corporate sponsors. Pavelich put all of his education and expertise into a concentrated effort resulting in the formation of the MFC brand.
The Maximum Fighting Championship currently headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta, with a second office opening in Ontario in early 2011.
