Alaska Fighting Championship is Alaska’s premier Mixed Martial Arts event. Founded back in July 2004, AFC has come a long way in cultivating its own professional fighters, some of which have fought in the UFC. Much like the days of discovering gold in Alaska, the AFC has mined many a gritty competitor from the ranks of hardy, “Last Frontier” Alaskan men and women. The reputation of tough Alaskan men and women and the harsh elements they train in has attracted global attention. Alaska Fighting Championship can be seen live, starting in September of 2017 at their new home at the Alaska Airlines Center in Anchorage, AK and is steamed around the world live only on UFC FIGHT PASS.
