I've been saying for years that it would be awesome to have two fighters fight a series of three fights throughout the year. Really create rivalries .
Each fighter gets a $xx.00 draw for competing in fight series
A fight purse is determined by promotion (ie. $40k for prelim level fights, $1M main event fights)
Fight 1 - X Round kick-boxing match (25% of total purse to winner)
Fight 2 - grappling/submission match (1 month later and 25% of total purse to winner)
Fight 3 - 3 Round MMA match (1 month later and 50% of total purse to winner)
Don't know how champions would be determined, and for sure UFC wouldn't do it...but would be a cool fight series. Maybe I shouldn't post this on here...lol. Start my own fight series.
Either way, would be awesome because you could really build up rivalries and would have ongoing fight series going on at all times. Could have the GSP vs. Hendricks MMA fight, Weidman vs. Silva grappling fight and Rousey vs. McMann boxing fight all on same card.
Fighters could make more, promoters could have way more "high draw" events by loading cards with big names.
If a fight series comes out like this...this post is my copyright idea! Lol
