Major new regulations for title fights, weigh-ins and drug testing
For Immediate Release
Always an organization at the forefront of change and new ideas, the Maximum Fighting Championship is pleased to announce and confirm three key new procedures.

The Maximum Fighting Championship also holds an option to make an immediate rematch.
