Abu Dhabi Fighting Championship

I SEE have introduced the Abu Dhabi Fighting Championship™ presented under the patronage of H. H. Sheikh Mohamed Bin Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan. Born in the Emirates ADFC™ is an open-weight, televised and recurring Mixed Martial Arts Grand Prix. International super-star fighters have clashed and will continue to clash in the open-weight championship to decide who will be the One to Rule Them All. As an open-weight grand prix in Mixed Martial Arts, it is the first in the region. Eight International Mixed Martial Artists have competed in the championship for the 1 Million Dirham Grand Prize which will be the reward to the champion, also crowned ADFC Champion. The championship will take place over three events, the first of which was on May 14th, 2010, and the last of which will see the crowning of the ADFC Champ and their receipt of the 1,000,000 Dirhams. The 2nd Round has been announced for the 22nd of October, four champions will return for another go at the Grand Prix and the Title Belt. Great emphasis is also being placed on local talent, the fighters of the UAE and Gulf Region. As such, side fights placing local against international fighters accompanies the Grand Prix. ADFC™ was and will remain a platform for 12 local fighters to exhibit their skills and talent and to propel them into the international spotlight. Mixed Martial Arts is about discipline, skill, agility and most importantly, mental strength. These factors make this sport more than just mindless fighting and brawling. It is about training, physical education and perseverance, all of which are advantageous qualities for the youth of today.
