Multiple small UK based MMA promotions have come together to create the British Fighting Championship. The smaller promotions include Cage Warriors, AMMA, FX3, Ultimate Force, and the Ultimate Warrior Challenge. They will unify all of their respective championship titles and plan to hold twelve events per year. They will have seven men’s weight classes as well as two for women.
The BFC will try to make MMA more profitable for the fighters as well as making MMA more of a high profile sport in the United Kingdom. With fighter’s purses as high as 250,000 pounds ($368,625 US) and live events available on live internet web stream and British Cable Television, they should have success at becoming more popular in the UK and around the world.
No date or location has been set for the first event as of yet, but this may be just what the UK based fighters need to get a broader audience and showcase their talents to the larger promotions, such as the UFC, Affliction, and others.
