Canadians in Combat – October 2021

Every month, MMA Empire will bring you a comprehensive list of any and all Canadian fighters who will be competing in MMA events outside Canada. Check back every week to keep up to date with all the results.

Fall is here and that means the MMA scene is going to start heating up again. October will be a solid month for Canadian fighters down south with a handful of fighters competing in the Big 3 of UFC, Bellator and PFL. Good news for women’s MMA fans as almost half of those will be female fighters.
