Cameroon’s forward-looking vision, reflected in the National Development Strategy(SND 2030), aims to make Cameroon emerging, democratic and united in its diversity, by building a country where major events take place, like in the international scene.
The vision is for Cameroon to be known as a new destination for sporting events with regard to its cutting-edge infrastructure, for the promotion of all sports and especially sports of fights including Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).
GLEO FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP(GFC), organised by the Global Event Organization is a competition that would bring Mixed Martial Arts closer to the public in order to encourage vocations for African youth in general and Cameroonians in particular.
Mixed Martial Arts, known as MMA is an interaction of several combat sports such as boxing, muay thai, kick- boxing, wrestling, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, karate, judo and grappling, combining techniques, projection and submission.
Convinced that Africa is in the future, the next region of the world that develops for very high level fighters, Global Event Organization has decided to organize the first major MMA event in Cameroon, called GLEO FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP(GFC).
GFC is positioned as the ideal platform to present to the eyes of the world, motivated fighters that include the continent in general and Cameroon in particular, through the symbolic act of organizing this event in Cameroon, the country of origin of the current UFC Heavyweight World champion of the prestigious league of MMA in the person of Francis NGANNOU.
GLEO FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP will take place on Saturday 21st August 2021 at the Palais Po- lyvalent des Sports de Yaoundé (PA.PO.S.Y.). The PA.PO.S.Y. is a covered room with a capacity of 5,200 seats.

The GFC will offer the public a series of fights, while revealing the talents of each fighter. There would be thirteen (13) fights including three (03) in the amateur category and ten (10) in the professional category.
For more show, of the ten professional fights, two (02) will constitute the main event, with belts involved. Each fighter will receive also a medal.
