Armageddon Fighting Championships II Set For Victoria, March 6th
According to TopMMANews.com, Armageddon Fighting Championships intends to hold a second event near Victoria, B.C. on March 6th, 2010 at Colwood's Bear Mountain Arena.
Armageddon FC experienced some snags with their debut card last August that saw them scrambling to secure a venue. They were also forced to replace main event fighter Kalib Starnes who pulled out with injury at the last minute. The show was deemed a major success, nonetheless, especially by the sold-out crowd of 3000+ who were thrilled by Nanaimo's Nick Hincliffe (then 13-4) who scored a first-round KO in the main event.
For their next show, AFC seems determined to bring B.C. MMA fans the biggest fights possible. With sanctioning just secured in Vancouver, this event could be the start of a series of big fights in the province. TopMMANews.com caught up with AFC promoter Darren Owen who clearly demonstrated that the AFC is thinking big:
“You will see fighters who have fought in the UFC and you will see some of the best local talent. Bottom line – (the AFC) will do everything we can to bring our fans the best fighters and make the most entertaining fights. I think people will be surprised with who they’ll see fighting in the AFC.”
