Colosseum Sports to Launch UK Female Fighting Championships, Sept 1, 2013
The event will take place on September 1st, 2013 in Guildford, Surrey.
With the "Women Fight Back" show being an overwhelming success and the increasing popularity of women's MMA worldwide the demand to appear on the show is set to be high.
Colosseum Sports' Gary Bond told us;
After holding the Women Fight Back Event in August 2012 (which was in aid of Victim Support), we realised that this was the first all-female event in the UK and we were proud to pull it off with success.
During the past few months we have been following the success of Invicta FC and the recent inclusion of female fighters in the UFC.
There is clearly many established female fighters in the UK and Europe and we decided to give them a UK show to showcase their talent, hence the birth of UKFFC (UK Female Fighting Championships).
Some would say that this is a brave move and that matching female fighters is harder and obviously dealing with pull-outs and last minute stand-ins is difficult, given the lesser number of female fighters.
Our answer to this is Yes - it is brave, but we feel it is necessary in order to grow the sport by encouraging more women to train and test their courage and skills. Who knows one day soon, we could be a feeder for Invicta FC and the UFC from a UK and European perspective.
Invicta FC have lifted the profile of WMMA tenfold over the last eight months with a series of high profile events stateside. After four highly successful shows the promotion is gathering pace at an alarming rate.
More details on the inaugural UK Female Fighting Championships (UKFFC) will be released over the next few weeks.
