Event promoter Wayne DeMilia declared his intention to produce a series of championship level bouts featuring top MMA fighters, saying, “In the past MMA fans had to travel to Las Vegas or California to see the top tier talent in the sport in person. Global Fighting Championships will bring MMA’s best fighters to the most populated area in the nation, and to its fans who are clamoring to see them live. The East Coast has always been a Mecca for pro fighting.
