The biggest fucking scam job in the sport is amateur MMA.

There a bunch of local promoters who won't even promote pro shows because they can make more money running an amateur scam. It's much easier to make money when you don't have to pay the guys getting busted up in the cage.

and these people don't have head gear and other protection other amateur fighters have. if this is amateur, then why no protection? because it sells better for the promoter. people will pay to see someone get hurt. these guys are risking their health just as much as any pros, but they get paid zero.

I love the underground fighting clubs. I love those video were they are fighting eachother with bare knuckles and both guys are covered in blood.

Fighters get a 20% cut of the winnings, the rest goes to myself and my cab fee's.

Rules will be like those of PrideFC, only exceptions will be the allowance of Elbows, and there will be no Stomps.


.....Looking to fight? Contact Bushido Samurai our first event will be August. 7th 2010.
Tickets: 10 Dollars a head.
If you have an undercard loaded with crazy hobos knife fighting, I'm so there.

Does anyone know if there were any REAL fight clubs started after the movie came out? I always thought that idea was kind of cool...
