The Freestyle Fighting Championship®

FFI poster
SportfightingUSA is proud to introduce their newest show The Freestyle Fighting Championship® to take place January 12th at the President Casino Ballroom in Biloxi Mississippi. "We have been working under the radar screen for about 12 months testing concepts, building a database, forming strategic alliances, and holding small events," said FFC President Rob Braniff. We have three goals for this organization:

  • Build progressive organization for the fans. We are in the entertainment business and understand that to compete for the peoples’ discretionary dollar you have to put on an event!
  • Put fighter safety first. Make only competitive matches, have credentialed medical help, and qualified referee’s
  • Make the sport available to the masses. We will be holding shows in venues that are available to all ages and economic strata.
    "We are very excited about our first show, and are already making matches for FFCII to be held April 3rd at the President Casino in Biloxi Mississippi," said Lee Coates, President of SportfightingUSA.
