During the broadcast of MFC 28, owner Mark Pavelich announced that he had signed recently released UFC lightweight fighter Marcus Davis to appear on this card. Davis was expected to fight Kajan Johnson at this card, however Johnson pulled out with an injured shoulder. Davis ended up fighting Curtis Demarce.
MFC 29 is the only MFC event in which all bouts took place in a circular cage instead of their signature ring. This was done in accordance with the regulations utilized in Ontario which requires all mixed martial arts fights to be held in a cage structure. The MFC held a "Name the Cage" fan contest with the winning entry receiving a trip for two to see the show, including premium tickets to the fights, airfare, ground transportation, hotel accommodations, pre-show and after-party. The new MFC cage was named "The Ring".
