About Carolina Fight Promotions:
Carolina Fight Promotions was founded by Doug Muhle in 2007. As the original sponsor for the repeal of the "Ultimate Fighter" law, CFP is solely responsible for bringing mixed martial arts cage fighting back to North Carolina. Following the sold out success of "The Clash at the Coast" in Wilmington, and "The Return" in Raleigh, CFP is now presenting the largest MMA event ever held in North Carolina with "The Carolina Crown" at the RBC Center in Raleigh on October 11th.
