Global Fighting Championships is the latest entry in the increasingly popular sport of Mixed Martial Arts competitions.

A heavyweight championship match features long-time foes Jeff “The Snowman” Monson and Wes “The Project” Sims in a face-off that fans have been eagerly awaiting. It’s going to be a tight match for the middleweight belt between Edwin “Babyface” Dewees and Mavrick “The Soul Collector” Harvey.
