Korean Fighters Alliance! For The Future Of Korean MMA

Korean Fighters Alliance - mfight.co.kr

There is almost nowhere to compete in MMA in Korea right now. SpiritMC is gone and FMC doesn’t seem like it will continue. There are events outside of Korea but only a few fighters will get a shot there. Young fighters can’t get any experience so fewer pursue MMA these days.

Because of this, the Korean Fighters Alliance (KFA), which is just a group of fighters from different gyms training together once a week to trade training methods and gain experience, has been started.

A few of the fighters are former SpiritMC Welterweight champion Ui Cheol Nam, who is supposed to make his Strikeforce debut on the Fedor vs. Rogers card, undefeated Heavyweight prospect Hae Joon Yang, Seung Bae Whi, and SENGOKU X participant Jae Sun Lee.

    Ui Cheol Nam is fighting on the Strikeforce undercard? Great stuff, wish him the best. I think the lack of Korean organizations is hugely unfortunate. Korea has loads of talented fighters and the death of spirit MC and the incompetence is just terrible. Couple that with the madatory 2 year military service and MMA is serverly stunted in Korea.

    Yeah, though I think the military service will be shortened to 1.5 year soon. I think I read that somehwhere.

    Korea develops world class judokas as well as other world class martial artists and even some boxers. I dont see why MMA would be affected more than the other sports by the service.
