Fighting Mixed Combative! Some Details Out

An FMC representative was interviewed by Russian site valetudo.ru recently. In the interview some more details of the organization came to light. This is what I got from translating with online translators and comparing them, if anyone who reads Russian could translate or confirm that what I write is correct, please go ahead.

It seems like the first event will take place on August 16th and be a Korea vs. Japan card (as previously reported) since August 15th is the day Korea got independent from Japan. Don’t expect much of this card if most fights are Korea vs. Japan.

The second event will take place at the end of September (25-26).

All contracts for the first card are already set, and they are currently working on completing the second one.

They plan to hold FMC events in Russia, Japan, and other countries next year.

It seems like soccer kicks will be prohibited but stomps will be allowed. The fights will take place in a ring and be 3 5 minute rounds (why!?).

It seems like they will use a GP system to crown champions similar to some Japanese organizations.

The representative says that there will be doping tests, and also health checks 7 days before the fight.

It seems like the participation of Igor is now not as sure as before. Ivan and Aleksander are signed though.

In Korea they will work with big TV channel MBC, and they have contacted foreign channels, but they don’t know what will become of that yet.

In 5 years they want to be an organization with many fans who like the organization.

    Any chance we could get the full fight card posted? I’m very curious about FMC.

    Will FMC do collaborations with Sengoku and/or DREAM?

    Because if they dont, then it makes their japan shows kinda iffy having to have a whole new batch of exclusive fighters?

    Since Ivanov will be fighting in both, I dont think theyll have any exclusive deals but how is it going to work with the jap orgs when they do shows there?

    I hope both FMC and Art of War do well but Id prefer they concentrate each on their territory and work with each other.

    Korea is actually doing well in MMA currently they have Fury FC and Cage Force. China, on the other hand, only has AoW.
    I do agree that more Org’s need to have more exclusives and stop sharing so much.

    Isn’t Fury FC a Brazillian organization and I never heard of CageFore ever doing shows in Korea before.

    You’re right about Fury, I meant Spirit MC, sorry. And I looked into Cage Force and it is based in Japan, just know of alot of Koreans coming from there.
