The first ever Oman Fighting Championship (OFC), ‘The Rise of the Champions’, which took place recently, was a sold-out event. Sanctioned by the World Kickboxing Federation, the event was the first of its kind in Oman and created an exciting platform for local fighters and martial artists to showcase their talents. Officials from the World Kickboxing Federation also attended the event to ensure it complied with international standards and provided unbiased judging and refereeing during the event. OFC is a newly established initiative launched under The Agency Design & Promo Works (Modern Lifestyle Co) and is open to all full contact clubs in Oman. The event saw K1 kickboxing and boxing fights; organisers hope to add Ju Jitsu, Muay Thai, Wrestling, Capoeira and full Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) to future events.
