KYFC is Kentucky's longest running MMA promotion. The majority of Jimmy Mc's events feature amateur fighters, but the events are still great to watch. KYFC # 44 was actually the first regional event I attended, and it's where I met Jason Stanley, a fighter I interviewed here.
Jimmy hosts great events, and I'm looking forward to this one. Not to mention, getting to meet Junie and Carlson Gracie, Jr. will be cool, too.
(Editor's Note - today I received an email from Jimmy Mc stating that he still needs fighters for the event. I'll list the weights (and the fighter's record) that Jimmy said are still needed - if you're interested, contact Jimmy at the phone or email above.)
