    MFC is and will be the best organization in canada…get your facts right…names like Thales Leites who fought anderson silva, wilson gouveia, ryan jimmo (one of the best up and coming canadian fighters in his weight class) , Luigi Fiorivantii, Bobby Lashley got his start there ( his 2nd pro mma fight) , just to name a few…W1 is ok but MFC is going to be huge once they get in to Ontario…Edmonton has some killer cards..check it out..join the group on facebook “Legalize mma in Ontario” we need to get this amazing sport sanctioned in Ontario ASAP!!!!
