    Courtenay is a hotbed of MMA small place and we boast half a dozen legit pros and one ammy in each of these fights, I may be biased since he’s my friend and I represent him but watch Fraser Jordan who has already signed a pro deal with AFC he is right now one of the top 3 middleweights in the province pro or ammy I have yet to work with anyone who I could say with certainty could beat him. I promise big things from him.

    This should be a good time. Johnny Mac has always produced solid card in Courtenay for the ammy’s, teaming up with AFC should only make for better production.

    D.O is right on the records being off, but it’s tough to keep proper records with ammy’s, I think that should start to change now that Sherdog is tracking the ammy fights.

    AFC- Victoria BC, Calgary and Edmonton AB and now all ammy in Courtenay… What’s next guys, things are growing pretty steadily?

    I gotta say I don’t like this, AFC is one of the bigger PRO promotions in Canada and it seems strange to me that they’d hold a full ammy event. I expected PRO events, not Pro and Ammy.

    This show in Courtenay has been going on for I think 4 years now under the title “Full Throttle Fight Nights” run by Comox Boxing clubs Johnny Mac. This year the are teaming up with Darren and AFC to simply bring some more production t the show and it looks like to help establish the amateur ranks within the AFC.

    I have said many times before that BC has some super talented amateur fighters that are A- getting their feet wet in front of the crowd while putting time in the cage and B- Fighters from unsanctioned pro areas are getting the chance to compete in front of their family and friends.

    The AFC and BFL donig pro/am shows only increases the value of live mma product around Canada. The only downside to amateur mma is the lack of paychecks for the athletes, but many promotions like the ones I’ve mentioned here give ticket sales percetages back to the ammy’s, so they still have the ability to take home some compensation for training and performing.

    I see no negatives. In fact, I’d much rather see a high end show like AFC put on amateur fights instead of small, unsanctioned, unmonitored shows.

    I see, totally understand. So basically AFC is upping the value of the show. Sounds cool and fair.

    My apologies, thanks for the clarification Jamie

    @ Bobby, there is no pro sanctioning body where the event is taking place, aprox 2.5 hours north of Victoria. There are so many good amateur fighters here in BC and not enough events for them to get the experience they want and need before making the jump to pro. So we will be doing some amateur events “Contender Series” that won’t be numbered AFC events. The next pro event, date and location will be released this week.

    I think this is a great idea.

    Mr pavelich is back as mma police. Hard to follow him with all those screen names he uses to tear other organizations down. What a bum

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 6 Thumb down 5

    Awesome fights and my guys went 6-0 so we are happy, Fraser Jordan is now actually 5-0 and will be making his pro debut ASAP. He is the best middleweight prospect in western canada, maybe all of canada but I don’t know enough about the eastern side to say it. He is signed to AFC for 3 fights and will soon be getting talked about alot!

    I often reflex on Mexician boxers who enter the pros with a large number of fights. In MMA there is just not enuff events for growing a pro as of today.
    What MMA Canada needs is the capacity to grow an MMA competitor thru a relativly large number of events.
    Sparing in a gym helps- but the lonilyness of being locked in a cage with a live crowd. Without this reality gut check, one can not grow in sport. Happy to see these kind of events.
