This event will sellout fast! Reserve your VIP tables now!
The whole city of Winnipeg is pumped for UFC 161 at the MTS Centre June 15! Everyone seems to be an MMA fan now and I have given almost ten interviews this week on the subject already!
This is the biggest news for our city since the Winnipeg Jets returned! When you include all the millions of people watching on pay per view, it will be the biggest event ever held in our city. UFC 161 will put Winnipeg on the world map for MMA!
Get Joe Doerksen on UFC 161
Now, for me and every MMA fan in Winnipeg, UFC 161 will not be complete without Winnipeg’s own Joe Doerksen on the show. Joe Doerksen is a Canadian MMA legend! With 49 wins and 9 appearances in UFC to his credit, Doerksen is the most experienced MMA fighter in Canada. It would be well-deserved based on his current results as he is on a two fight winning streak, including one over UFC vet Kalib Starnes, with both fights being named Fight of the Night by Top MMA News. Joe has fought at home many times for CFC over the years and the Winnipeg crowd loves him! No one deserves to be on the show more that Joe Doerksen!
The Return of Canadian Fighting Championship
Lastly, it has been a fantastic start to 2013 for CFC Gym! Our classes are full every night with people working hard to reach their goals! I can’t count how many people have asked me, ‘When are you running a show again?’ or ‘When is Winnipeg’s own Canadian Fighting Championship coming back with show # 8?’ So, with the high demand for MMA in Winnipeg, I have decided to promote CFC 8 later this year…stay tuned for an announcement very soon.
In the meantime, here are some great fights from CFC 7. http://www.canadianfighting.com/videos-cfc-7/
I hope you all had a joyful and relaxing holiday season. Now it’s time to get back to the gym, burn off that extra weight you have put on, and get into the best shape of your life!
The Canadian Fighting Center would like to help you accomplish this goal! So for the month of January, the CFC Gym is having a 50% off sale for all new members that purchase a 12 month Kickboxing, Grappling or MMA membership in full.

It’s been some time since the last blog and quite a lot has been happening at the Canadian Fighting Center, so I thought a summer update was in order.
New Mats = Safer and More Diverse Training!
At the Canadian Fighting Center, we are always extremely concerned with the welfare of our students. In order to further improve the level of safety for all levels of students, we ordered custom built wall mats a while ago. I am happy to report that these mats have finally arrived!
These specially made mats have padding that is 2″ thick and they have been custom fit to cover every wall inside our 5000 sq foot training area. In addition to the increased safety for all students, we have also increased the variety of training drills we can perform due to the additional 200 linear feet of wall mats to our cage wall.
With this upgrade to the school and the highly qualified instructors running classes, there is no doubt that the CFC Training Center is the #1 MMA gym in Winnipeg and one of the top gyms in Canada!
Manitoba MMA News
