Major league Mixed Martial Arts, which is often also referred to as "Ultimate Fighting" or "MMA", is making its return to Vancouver through Elite Fighting Federation (Elite Fighting Federation) on Friday September 29th at the PNE Agrodome. The last event was a barnburner with top-level local talent battling international stars of MMA at the Center for Performing Arts in Downtown Vancouver.

MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world, and Elite Fighting is the most authentic and entertaining fighting experience in the world. It pits practitioners of different styles of martial arts together in one event in which the most successful competitors train in numerous disciplines in order to be comfortable in all situations. This means that most competitors are proficient in boxing, muay thai kickboxing, jujitsu and wrestling, and mix those in with other combat sports. You may have seen similar events on Spike TV or on Pay Per View, but this is your chance to see it LIVE in your own city!

Elite competitors battle in a ring instead of in a cage as they do in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. This ensures that the live audience has excellent views from all four sides of the ring. An unfortunate challenge for those who use the cage is that while it looks good on TV, the live audience is often left unsatisfied due to terrible sight lines and cameramen in the way.

In Elite I: Supremacy, UFC veteran Marvin "The Beastman" Eastman took on veteran of the UFC and 49 professional MMA fights Travis “Diesel” Wiuff in a bout that had the fans on their feet cheering. The Beastman won the bout after 4 grueling 5-minute rounds and became the first Elite Light Heavyweight Champion. This bout, along with the rest of the Elite Supremacy card is currently available on Pay Per View and Video on Demand.

Elite II will feature Mr. Eastman defending his Light-Heavyweight title– against Vernon “tiger” White. These two have fought twice with each being victorious; this will be the long awaited rubber match. This is sure to be a battle.
You will also have the opportunity to buy the highest quality MMA gloves, MMA shorts and apparel along with other Elite gear online, Elite Fighting Federation

This event will offer everything you would expect from an Elite show. The best matchmaking in the world with MMA's top fighters, the new addition of dinner seats on the floor as well as stadium seating in the stands, Pay Per View coverage, beautiful card girls and fights that will have you standing and screaming for your favorite competitors, will all be showcased.

Support Elite in solidifying Vancouver as a home for major league Mixed Martial Arts – you won't want to miss it!

i've been to the agrodome many times and it can hold about 10-12 thousand people, so the promoter of this event can make serious money if he gets a sellout.

I doubt this event will sell out. No one in Vancouver really follows MMA its more well known in Vegas, U.S.A., and Japan. A better place would be B.C. Place, that holds about 30,000 and GM Place holds 20,000 each Canuck game but they won't have the money to fight in GM Place.
yea thats true, king of the cage hold a few events in BC, i would rather go there than attend this event.
