    circuit

    Hello everyone,

    John Kavanagh, a famous MMA fighter amd coach, writes in his book:

    "For those of us who had been there from the beginning, 2003 was an exciting time for the sport, with promotions like Cage Warriors and Cage Rage having launched in the UK the previous year. The circuit was still very small. The promoters were shuffling a small deck of cards. If you were competing at an event, you’d keep a close eye on the other fights too because the likelihood was that you were studying a future opponent".

    What does "circuit" mean here? Scale of the event?

    Thank you.
