On March 30, 2013 Xcessive Force Fighting Championship went from just a dream to reality, with XFFC-1 “Genesis.” MMA is the fastest growing sport in North America and under the reigns of Grande Prairie’s own local promoter, Darren Cliffe, we have put Xcessive Force Fighting Championship and Grande Prairie on the map in the world of MMA. We are currently ranked in the top 3 promotions in Canada and clips of our show have been featured on The UFC’s reality show; The Ultimate Fighter.
Xcessive Force continues to grow and has developed a loyal fan base. The promotion is know as a fighter friendly fight show and always gives it’s fans the best possible experience.
XFFC is the brainchild of Darren Cliffe and has been a dream of his for years. Cliffe has been in Martial Arts for 40 years. He has been involved in MMA for 22 years and trains and coaches Amateur and Professional Fighters. With having the experience as a fighter, trainer, coach, manager and now a promoter, Cliffe has used his extensive knowledge of MMA to take Xcessive Force Fighting Championship from nonexistence to one of the top 3 MMA promotions in Canada. Cliffe’s vision is to promote MMA and give local amateur and professional athletes a forum to showcase their talents and help launch their MMA careers. XFFC’s second show, “East vs West” helped launch, Canadian MMA Fighter, Chad Laprise to the UFC’s Ultimate Fighter Show and a UFC Contract. Xcessive Force Fighting Championship was also a catalyst for XFFC Flyweight Champion, Yoni Sherabtov to be selected for the UFC’s reality show, The Ultimate Fighter.
