Darwin Douglas holds up a MMA belt at weigh-ins last year.
arwin Douglas, Chilliwack’s Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) promoter and professional MMA fighter, was issued the first license to organize an MMA event in Chilliwack. The British Columbia Athletic Commission (BCAC) is a new provincial body that “oversees the conduct of professional boxing and mixed martial arts (MMA) as well as amateur mixed martial arts, kickboxing, muay thai and pankration events throughout the Province of BC”.
Douglas did not waste time scheduling the first MMA event in Chilliwack to be sanctioned by BCAC for Friday May 2nd, 2014 at the Tzeachten Community Hall, in Chilliwack, BC.
The Four Directions Martial Arts Academy, owned by Douglas and his wife Francine is a 100% Aboriginal-owned and operated marital arts facility in Chilliwack, BC. They are excited to host their 11th MMA event they’ve named the Warpath Fighting Championships (WFC).
“The WFC is an opportunity for young athletes to gain ring experience. These events are the foundation that bring them to the next level of MMA. You will see some of these fighters in the UFC one day,” said Douglas in a release Tuesday.
