Created in 2003, Wu Lin Feng is the oldest mixed martial arts (MMA, the acronym for Mixed Martial Arts) and “swapping” (a term that designates all styles of 'standing fighting') in China and carries the youthful memories of a generation of general fight fans. The promotion became more international in 2007, when it decided to bring in new challengers from other countries and began filming abroad, including in the Netherlands, Germany, United Kingdom, Portugal, Romania, Russia, New Zealand, Thailand, Laos, UAE United States, Canada and United States.
The profile of attendees at Wu Lin Feng's concerts includes K-1 fighters, MMA professionals and Muay Thai fighters, as well as practitioners of Wushu (Kung Fu) and Sanda (Chinese Boxing).
Already in 2013, the promotion was ranked among the 100 'most watched programs in China' broadcast on satellite and cable television.
Despite promoting more Kickboxing fights, the WLF also held sporadically some MMA fights, in events under the name “EPIC”, which meant 'Elimination Power In Cage'.
In 2017 such events were renamed 'WARS' (or “Warriors Arena of Ruthless Submission”).
The latest show in the MMA “arm” of the franchise, the WLF MMA 50 was held on January 14th of this year.
