Almighty Fighting Championship set for York debut

After successfully making Leeds their home for the past two years, Yorkshire based promotion, Almighty Fighting Championship, moves on to pastures new in the shape of The Barbican in York. In what is a bigger venue, the prestigious Barbican will host AFC8 this coming Saturday. With no less than 25 fights of the card, AFC8 is sure to be an absolute barn-burner as the promotion has an excellent reputation for pitting a wealth of talent together in both the amateur and professional field.
