The point of bringing MMA to West Virginia is to showcase it’s local talent and the historic first show will do just that. On January 7, 2012 VFL – “The Beginning” will feature the WV fighters vs the rest of the country and features 10 professional fighters that currently live in WV and a handful that once held residence in the state.

“These guys wanted MMA in WV so they could fight here and show their friends and families what they are all about.  We don’t need a bunch of random shows coming here just to do shows.  We need a promotion that is going to showcase our talented fighters and this event does just that.  This is an event in WV for WV,” – says the president of the VFL.

This is an exciting time for our state and I hope that everyone will come out and support these fighters and all of the MMA shows that everyone worked so hard to get here. Look for an action packed night full of action from WV’s best fighters.
