Valley Fight is a Canadian mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion. It is one of the premier fight cards currently in Western Canada. Valley Fight prides themselves in being a “Grassroots” promotion, giving local fighters a place to start their careers before sending them to bigger promotions. The events take place in Chilliwack, BC. Unlike the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) which take place in a cage, Valley Fight takes place inside a ring similar to Japanese promotions such as DREAM or Pride.

September 20, 2007 the Vancouver City Council banned all mixed martial arts sporting events from taking place within city limits[2]. It was assumed that other communities within the Fraser Valley would follow.
On July 25, 2008 the Chilliwack Times, in an article headlined Blood Sport, reported that MMA events will not be held on city-owned property anytime soon[3]. This lead to an influx of letters to the editor from both sides[4], some supporting the city, and some for Valley Fight. The official Valley Fight website blog was constantly updated in the weeks following campaigning for their cause.[5]
