Maximum Fighting Championship CEO Mark Pavelich Sticks By Decision To Use Ring

Maximum Fighting Championship is one of the few organizations in North America that uses a ring instead of a cage to hold MMA fights. And, it seems as long as Mark Pavelich is in charge, it will remain that way.

MFC 36 goes down tonight from the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Pavelich, the CEO of the promotion, recently spoke with, and the decision to use a cage came up in the conversation.

We do have a cage, but I can’t stand watching MMA in a cage. I’ve always been an advocator of the ring in mixed martial arts and I’ll stay in a ring forever. It’s a fact that people are watching video screens at a live event. It’s ridiculous that we’re the only sport that does that. You go to an NBA game and you look at the court, you look at the video screens for replays, not for the action.
