Traditional Weigh-In Forced Private by the Calgary Commission!

Due to new regulations by the Calgary Combative Sports Commission (CCSC), Hard Knocks Fighting (HK) is no longer able to host a traditional public weigh-in event. Stating the inconvenience of these events, the CCSC has forced HK to host a private weigh-in. At the weigh-in fighters are only permitted one coach with them, and the CCSC is only allowing 2 representatives from the promotion. No media, no photos, no videos, no fun.
Please know that the HK Team will work hard to ensure that results from the weigh-in will be shared with all media outlets and through HK channels. If you do not currently receive our press release, please send your contact information to and we’ll make sure you get the results and news from all of our events.

If you disagree with this new regulation, and other new regulations that are being placed on our sport that do not relate to the safety of fighters, please take the time to let the CCSC know!
Here is their contact info for your convenience:

City of Calgary #8043
P.O. Box 2100, Station M
Calgary AB T2P 2M5
Fax: 403-268-2291


"Believe in yourself. Believe in your own potential for greatness. Believe that you can change the world.
