About BFC (British Fighting Championship)

2009 sees the start of the most exciting ever phase of MMA in the UK with the most established promoters now joined together in a unified staging of the first British Fighting Championship.

The main organizations that form part of this new Championship are FX3, Ultimate Force, Ultimate Warrior Challenge, AMMA, and Cage Warriors. The Championship is known as the BFC and is on track to become Europe’s biggest and most important tournament organizer.

The BFC is providing the UK with 12 Official BFC main multi-card shows in 2009, staged in venues from Glasgow to London and followed by a massive end-of-season ‘BFC Night of Champions’ in December where the 2009 season contenders for the British belts go head to head.

The belts cover seven male and two female weight categories and are worth up to £250,000 in total tournament purses with opportunities for emerging British talent to move up into the UFC and gain international recognition.
