Lately there has been quite a number of MMA matches that I had attended and I find them very interesting and very entertaining to watch. Especially when there is blood spilled and when there are a lot of movements and action by the fighters.
Now, because of this, I was invited to attend the Malaysian Fighting Championship (MFC) organized by Muayfit. Muayfit is one of the leading MMA gyms in Malaysia, and from my own knowledge, one of the few pioneers in MMA as I got to know about them in 2011 with their event of Mayhem 2. A bit on Mayhem 2 is that it was a showcase of MMA and the various martial arts that were taught in their gym as well as fights from amateurs and semi pros of the MMA industry. It was a whole day event with the event starting from the morning all the way to the night. It was a fantastic event.
Now, MFC is a spin off from Mayhem with the focus more on MMA fights of semi pro fighters, and I got the chance to actually view the matches that they had in store for everyone. It was held in Southgate located at Sg Besi next to the VW Showroom (if I am not mistaken). And despite it being a mall, it was not air conditioned as it was partially outdoors. So you can imagine the heat at the place, and I was sweating like mad.
Now they had 13 matches consisting of 12 matches by male fighters and 1 female match. It was really a heart pumping and heart racing event with the matches either had very strong beginnings or that the fighters were knocked out with incredible finesse. Despite the fights starting later than the said time, it began at about 8pm only to finish just before midnight.
Myself and a few other bloggers were lucky to be able to get up close and personal with the fights being right at the ring side, right next to the cage. If you want a more informative breakdown of the fights and what happened, you can head over to Tony’s blog at www.colourlessopinion.com where he had given a good breakdown of the event as well as the individual fights. Even giving his thoughts of which fights was the bloodiest, which fight had the best submission move, and so on so fourth.
As for me, I can’t complain because, I simply liked the violence and the finesse of the fighters who went into the cage to give it their all in winning the match. And to match that, only one match went all the way to the final round with a judges decision, which was the first match, the heavyweight match.
Many thanks to Muayfit for accommodating me at MFC. It was truly a fun, but hot night to enjoy some good old violent fun.
Do check out the gallery below of some videos that I had taken during the MFC. Please forgive for the non consistent videography on my part. I was too taken in by the fights that I lost sight videographing the matches.
