Question Canadians: Is MFC a good show?

I'd love to see a live event, but the UFC is a bit out of my reach right now. MFC is having an event in Edmonton in early June, and I was thinking of going. It's a bit of a hassle to get there (3 hour drive) for me, I've only heard of one or two guys on the card (Valimaki for one), and the tickets are more expensive than I expected - so I'm a little hesitant to throw caution and cash to the wind and go.

Has anybody seen a live MFC event? And would you recommend it?

MFC (Maximum FC) is a Canadian outfit that I gather is split between Alberta and Quebec - and maybe Halifax. The biggest names from MFC are Jason "The Athlete" MacDonald, Patrick "Predator" Cote, and Victor "Matrix" Valimaki - so I'm guessing it can't be totally bush league. Having looked at the card, I've only heard of Valimaki and that's because I saw him fight Vernon White on The Score sports network.

The promoter Mark or Mike Pavelich (his Dad or uncle was a big time NHLer) has been on TSN's Off The Record (although I thought he looked like a cross between a pimp and one of the Designer Guys) - not exactly the highest praise, but the fact that he's been on a national sports show should indicate that MFC is not completely bush.

I'm not sure if it's spamming if I give the website, but Google "Maximum Fighting" and there you go.

I'd just hate to waste the time and money to go if guys here already know that it's a crap show.

it might now be totally bush leauge but the fights were so boring when i went, i dunno if you like local live mma stuff check out tfc (the fight club.ca) they just got ryan ford who is bsically thier best guy and the energy at teh fight is way more you wont sit down at a tfc fight, but at least if you do youll be able to see the ring cus tfc has stadium seating.

Ryan Fords pretty good, but they do have Bobby Lashley fighting there soon so I imagine they will stack the card for when he fights.
