MMA is simply an inimitable and unique sporting industry. It is a phenomenon of new sporting age.

Current TOP 10 with the most fans: (1) Football (2) Basketball (3) Cricket (4) Tennis (5) Athletics (6) Rugby (7) (source: The Guardian) MMA is simply a phenomenon. No other sport in modern history has gained its popularity so quickly. But this was a difficult journey. MMA has not always been perceived as a sport. After all, in 1993, there were only two rules in the UFC's first tournament: 1) a biting ban, 2) a ban on eye attack. Since then, however, the MMA has undergone considerable development, leading even to being accepted and approved by the New York State Athletic Commission, which is one of the most severe in the world to assess the safety of athletes.
MMA is currently significantly safer than hockey or American football. This is why today it is the fastest-growing sporting entertainment of the planet.
Who is the MMA viewer?
MMA is also exceptional because the fans base is made up of spectators who do not practice the sport themselves (96%), and that is how it allows it to spread so quickly. Basically, it's just one thing. To tell you that MMA is a great and exceptional sport that it really is.
Another outstanding feature of MMA is that it attracts dynamic, modern people who long for adrenaline. In other words, especially the middle and upper classes of working-age population willing to spend money for entertainment.
A typical MMA fan is a man (74%) in the productive age of 18-44 years (81%), in the middle or higher social group (84%).
Typology and social stratification of MMA fans:
Upper middle class 30%
Middle class 54%
Lower middle class 16%
0-17 years 15%
18-44 years 81%
44 and over 4%

Our way to MMA. 10 years in martial arts.
We are very proud to be one of the most successful event managers in Europe today. Over the last 10 years, we have organized more than 100 successful events. Regional, European and world importance. Our story began in 2007, when the awareness of martial arts was very small. Media and the public were not interested in these sports. On the contrary, they considered us to be a "gangster" sport. But we had a dream. A dream about the fact that one day the fighting sports will be sold out in Czech sports halls. In 2008, after a few months of preparation, we organized the first event in the small north Bohemian town of Most, for the 600 biggest fans. We made many mistakes, but we learned a lot. But it was an extraordinary evening, and we believed ourselves and our abilities. In 2011, we became a leading promotional group in the Czech Republic. We have created and successfully built 3 of the 5 largest brands of combat sports events. For the first time, the number of our spectators at the events per year exceeded 5,000. Combat sports were on the rise. In 2013, MMA entered the game and Mixed martial arts, which gained more and more popularity in the Czech Republic as well. While we have worked out as a specialist in ring disciplines, MMA has become the future of combat sports. 2015 was a breakthrough. Combat sports has become a new sporting phenomenon that sells out the largest arenas in the US. The general public, the media and viewers find that MMA is a new sporting hit. We have been facing the biggest challenge for now. Organizing the MMA World Championship, which was to be the biggest event of martial arts and sports in the history of the Czech Republic. More than 600 athletes from 52 countries came to Prague to introduce new world champions to the world.
In 2016, the XFN was born. Everything we've learned in the past 9 years has been put into this brand. Brands that present today the best of our craft and know-how. We don`t founded XFN by ourselves. We founded it together with the Czech MMA champions and set out on a journey that will lead us to become the most popular domestic league in five years.
It is 2017 and our expectations are multiplied. XFN becomes a brand with an extraordinary overlap. Not just among sports fans of traditional sports, such as football, hockey or athletics, but to the general public. Our last live TV event is watched by more people than the Champions League football match!
In 2018, we managed to sell out the Prague O2 arena! 17308 viewers and hundreds of thousands of TV viewers watching the XFN 15, which broke the interest of all Czechoslovakia!
What is waiting for us in future?
XFN decided to expand to other European countries in 2020. We are currently preparing events in Switzerland, Germany and we want to return to Austria again.
What awaits us between 2019 and 2021? The goal of the XFN is to become a successful multinational organization with a European reach.
There are no transnational MMA organizations in the Western European countries. This place on the market is mainly due to the attitude and regulation of individual countries towards this sport. However, the situation remains unsustainable. And with the end of regulation in the US and Arab countries, the MMA is ahead of the rise even in Western European countries.
The goal of the XFN between 2019 and 2021 is therefore simple, to penetrate the "West" and become a successful multinational MMA organization with a European reach.
