Pavelich wrote a Facebook page describing the legacy of the MFC, including the many notable fighters that fought in the organization.
“The Maximum Fighting Championship was my passion and my labor of love,” Pavelich wrote. “It was not just an MMA show. It was a professional sports organization.”
“I truly enjoyed every second of creating, developing, and surging ahead with the MFC. But the time has now come to officially let someone else carry on the name and the brand that we made so popular and profitable. My new business, The Mark Consulting & Marketing, is thriving and exceeding our expectations, and therefore requires all the attention I can provide.”
The MFC started in 2001 and became the biggest promotion in Canada. Many fighters such as Ryan Jimmo, Ryan Ford, Tom Watson, Jason MacDonald, Thales Leites and Paul Daley have fought there or moved on to the UFC and other organizations.
