    We Sherdoggers need to start our own mma business.

    Vanguard Fights or Huckleberry Fights sounds interesting for an mma promotion name.

    I decided to call it Vanguard Fighting Series,

    It will be an 8 man tournament format like the early days of Bellator.

    Instead of prize money, each fighter will be payed by bitcoin or ethereum.

    That would cost a pretty penny. It's fun to think about though.

    I helped manage a couple fighters and worked with a few local MMA promotions here in the Bay Area

    I did years ago. Bum fights was a great success.

    I wanted to, I used to work for my friend who was a Strikeforce fighter so I'd get to go behind the scenes and to the after parties. I think the best job in MMA would be match making. Promoting sounds like a hassle, I remember going to the weigh ins at the Marriot or at the SAP center and it looked like a lot of work.

    I follow this youtube channel called Street Beefs (basically a step-up from Bum Fights) that seems to have a decent following.

    Judging by the set-up, I've tossed around the feasibility of what it would take to start one up (willing participants, a basic ring/cage/enclosure, some flair to set it apart from the rest, etc.). The main cons IMO being the potential liability and unsavory people.

    Not trying to ball like Dana White. I'd be fine being a thousand-aire.

    Yeah I'm not really a club guy but they were cool. I remember one in particular that he had with Josh Thomson and Cung Le. Cung Le won that night but he had his nose broken so he was just sitting there and his wife kept holding tissue up to his nose.

    There was another he had with Josh Koschek and I was in line with my guests, I told Josh we were on the list but I can't get a hold of my buddy. He could have blown me off, it was the first time we met but he was cool, he went in and got us all in.
