Well, the talk in Winnipeg is all about MMA and CFC 8 is set to rock the Winnipeg Convention Centre on September 13. There is no doubt that this event will be sold out.
I am pleased to announce that Winnipeg’s own Joe Doerksen will be headlining this Friday the 13th card. Joe instructs at the CFC Training Center, is a former UFC fighter, and is 2-0 in his previous Canadian Fighting Championship appearances. Come out and cheer on the best MMA fighter to come out of our province!
Other fighters confirmed to compete on CFC 8 include Agostino DeNatale, Jon Henderson, Travis Gervais, David Quangvan, Mark Durant, Lance Cartwright, Vyron Phillips and Ryan Pang. More fighters will be added to the line up very soon as CFC 8 promises to showcase Winnipeg’s top MMA talent.

The whole city of Winnipeg is pumped for UFC 161 at the MTS Centre June 15! Everyone seems to be an MMA fan now and I have given almost ten interviews this week on the subject already!
This is the biggest news for our city since the Winnipeg Jets returned! When you include all the millions of people watching on pay per view, it will be the biggest event ever held in our city. UFC 161 will put Winnipeg on the world map for MMA!
Get Joe Doerksen on UFC 161
Now, for me and every MMA fan in Winnipeg, UFC 161 will not be complete without Winnipeg’s own Joe Doerksen on the show. Joe Doerksen is a Canadian MMA legend! With 49 wins and 9 appearances in UFC to his credit, Doerksen is the most experienced MMA fighter in Canada. It would be well-deserved based on his current results as he is on a two fight winning streak, including one over UFC vet Kalib Starnes, with both fights being named Fight of the Night by Top MMA News. Joe has fought at home many times for CFC over the years and the Winnipeg crowd loves him! No one deserves to be on the show more that Joe Doerksen!
The Return of Canadian Fighting Championship
Lastly, it has been a fantastic start to 2013 for CFC Gym! Our classes are full every night with people working hard to reach their goals! I can’t count how many people have asked me, ‘When are you running a show again?’ or ‘When is Winnipeg’s own Canadian Fighting Championship coming back with show # 8?’ So, with the high demand for MMA in Winnipeg, I have decided to promote CFC 8 later this year…stay tuned for an announcement very soon.
In the meantime, here are some great fights from CFC 7. http://www.canadianfighting.com/videos-cfc-7/
