TKO Major League MMA is a defunct Canadian mixed martial arts (MMA) organization, formerly the biggest MMA promotion in Canada. Despite its name, it was considered a minor circuit, overshadowed by the Ultimate Fighting Championship, with which it had a close working relationship. In its early existence, TKO used a boxing-style ring to stage bouts, later became the only promotion other than the UFC to use a UFC-spec Octagon cage. The TKO president was Stéphane Patry, who also managed several fighters. TKO's programming is currently seen on Fight Network and RDS in Canada which also has an IPTV offering on Joost.
