Big MMA Organization Starting In Korea! Ivanov, Bae, And Aleksander Mentioned

A new big MMA organization which will be called “Fighter Mania Championship” (FMC) is starting in South Korea. The first event is planned to take place in September in Seoul and a press conference is planned for July. Aleksander Emelianenko, Choi Mu Bae, and Blagoi Ivanov (the guy who beat Fedor in Combat Sambo) are already at the verbal level in regards to participation. They are planning to hold an event per 2-3 months all around South Korea.

The company behind the event is an MMA/Martial Arts management company called “Fighter Mania Entertainment”. The company will also hold amateur events (starting in July) for domestic talent between the big FMC events.

FME representative Kim said that they are aiming at the organization becoming to the level that PRIDE was and the UFC is.

There are rumors that they are currently negotiating with all three of the Emelianenko brothers (Aleksander is already confirmed). PRIDE was very popular in Korea and Fedor is well-known there. I have even seen UFC and K-1 mentioned in Korean movies.

Kim also mentioned Mirko CroCop, Mark Hunt, and Jerome Le Banner.

    honestly, I’m not excited about this at all for one main reason.

    we don’t need another big Org trying to spread out and thin out the talent within all the non UFC orgs even more.

    You’re wrong. We need big shows with soccer kicks, and stomps. UFC needs to change it’s rules or go away.

    A) yes, we need more shows with different rules,..like when Pancrase was the open hand slapping league.

    B)the only people who dont want more orgs are the UFC lovers who are afraid that their favorite logo could somehow make more money. If you like MMA as a sport and you want it to spread, countries have to have their own leagues.

    C)more orgs is better for fighters, more options, more chances to fight, etc. its hard to understand when the company you support treats fighters like cattle, limiting their income possibilities.

    Aleksander can not fight in America because of some disease, he never fought again anymore because he was refused to fight in Japan.
