Aggression MMA Acquires The Fight Club

By:

January 17th, 2011 – Edmonton, Alberta, Aggression MMA has concluded with its arrangement to acquire, one of the premier MMA promotions in Western Canada, in The Fight Club (TFC). This agreement will merge TFC under the Aggression MMA umbrella and all future events will occur under the Aggression name.

“This is hands down the most exciting day for us at Aggression. We obviously have an abundance of respect for The Fight Club and the components for making that such a successful mixed martial arts organization over the years,” stated Harvey Panesar co-owner of Aggression MMA, “It just felt right to start solidifying the MMA landscape in Edmonton, to be able to provide the amazing fans of Edmonton an event bringing the best locals under one roof, without having to choose amongst the two organizations.”

“The Fight Club has successfully established its brand with the MMA community in Canada, putting on over 12 shows and some remarkable fight cards, however both organizations felt it was best to work together, rather than compete amongst each other, in the end, the fans win.”

Aggression MMA will be acquiring some of the contracts that are in place with the TFC and will bring on Mr. Mark Sinclair as the Director of Production and Pay Per View. “We are pleased that Mr. Sinclair is coming on board with us. The production aspect of TFC was incredible and we are looking to make future Aggression shows just as good, if not better on the production side,” continued Harvey Panesar

Aggression MMA, will continue to move forward with its next show, which will be announced Friday, January 21, 2010 at the Kamikaze Punishment/Aggression MMA Private Gym located at 11845 Wayne Gretzky DR, Edmonton, Alberta. For more information please contact info@aggressionmma.com

Aggression is also pleased to announce that on Saturday, January 22, Kamikaze Punishment presents a 1-day UFC Fighter seminar, with a meet and greet featuring: Clay “The Carpenter” Guida, Mike “Quicksand” Pyle, and Jason “The athlete” Macdonald.

    Thanks Cody! We are banking on it. It was not possible to legitimize true champions and belt holders by having quality fighters in 2 different promotions. We can now focus on truly giving the fans quality match ups that they deserve.

  13. Hey Duffy,We never announced a December show so how do you cancel something that is not officially announced? We had our Good friend George Awada(one of the most respected trainers in the local MMA scene) put on a show so some our Aggression fighters could keep busy. We are one the few organization that puts fighters first. Don’t forget we have a press conference at the Aggression MMA headquarters friday jan 21 at 2 30. What organization opens a private gym for its fighters Duffy? Everyone is welcome to the press conference. Come say hi Duffy and we can continue this conversation. I hate being a keyboard warrior

    I have had the privelage of working with both TFC and Aggression. This merger is a great thing for the two companies and Edmonton fight fans!! Mark Sinclair has some great ideas and some really good connections, he will be a valuable asset to Aggression. Moin, Troy and Harvey have been working very hard to take Aggression to the next level. This will make things go alot smoother!!!

  36. Real MMA fans know Darren Owen as do the 3000 plus fans that attend the AFC shows and so do world class fighters like Robert Drysdale. I can’t wait for our MMA discussion with such an astute MMA aficionado such as yourself. Don’t forget about the press conference at the aggression mma combative sports HQ.

    Please have the decency to spell your boss’ name correctly.

  38. Darren Owen says:

    He spells it incorrectly on purpose to trick everyone into thinking he’s not associated with him. Pavelich must have a very bad memory because he knew me 9 months ago when he tried to book our venue. Our arena told him they were exclusive with me and he could go pound sand. He lost it on the phone saying it’s ridiculous to have an exclusive contract. Shortly after, he pulled that crap at CFC and promoted a show in Brandon, Manitoba. I can’t really remember how that went for him. Oh ya 80 tickets pre-sold so he had to run back to his tent.

  42. Trent, you had the honor of watching Harvey and I spar at the Agrression training ctr and it wasn’t pretty. We don’t know the meaning of 50 percent so it always gets ugly. Plus most of the MMA promoters are much too pretty to mess up their makeup. That means you Darren. Robin told me you love eyeliner

  43. I’m probably biased, but my money would be on CFC promoter Giuseppe DeNatale. He’s a world champion kickboxer, and I believe one of the few promoters who have even competed in MMA.

  44. Giuseppe’s stare alone is tougher than most promoters.

    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

  45. Don’t forget that Keith Crawford is our director of Operations. My money is on him. I have heard about Giuseppe’s stare and i was scared hearing about it. It couldn’t be that scary though if Duffy’s boss had the balls to announce his Brandon show at Giuseppe’s event. Did Duffy’s boss witness the “stare”? Regardless my money is on Keith.
