Some of the top local females will compete for the opportunity to advance to the tournament championship in ECFC’s first female amateur tournament championship at ECFC 3. Plenty of exciting amateur bouts with some of the top local amateurs will round out the card.

“The feedback and support that we got at ECFC 1 was phenomenal and our fans (young and old) are still talking about June 13th. We were able to accomplish all three of our core missions: great fights, a great show, and a benefit for the community. ECFC 2 will continue to build upon the tremendous show we had in June. Our bantamweight tournament championship bout is sure to be talked about for years. If you liked ECFC 1, you’ll love ECFC 2”, said Brian Gillespie, one of ECFC’s Founders.
