A Vision For A Professional Combating League: Local Fighters, Team Owners, And Fans There is, and always has been, an issue on the planet of professional combating: Unlike almost any other sport, a single entity manages the players. In boxing, a single infamous promoter almost messed up the sport (and probably did) with the way he handled and controlled fighters and matches. Now, in the flourishing sport of combined martial arts (MMA), the leading brands control the match ups and, when it comes to the International Fight League, owned and operate the teams. In contrast, the top sports franchises of our day-- the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL-- all succeeded based on local teams, regional owners, and regional fans collaborating to develop something bigger and higher than a single owner ever could. Team owners quit a bit in order to create something truly unique. It is time for a comparable vision to come to fruition in the battling world. Bonecrunch Fighting is a brand-new league-based battling company based on precisely this concept. In this league, local owners develop groups with as lots of regional fighters as possible, in order to gain the assistance of regional fans. The league is structured like a franchise, and seeks entrepreneurs with monetary staying power to owned and operate and develop successful teams. Results so far include: - An inaugural event that sold out a 3600 seat arena in Sarasota Florida. - Top sponsors consisting of the United States Marines and Budweiser. - Creation of the required legal files to offer a franchise to interested and certified group owners. - Assembly of a leading leadership team with management and combating industry competence. - Development of design template marketing materials, job management tools, and contracts to successfully run events. - Agreements with five leading MMA fitness instructors and school owners (with 4 more in the works) who have put fighters into leading companies. These fitness instructors have a cadre of outstanding local fighters ready to handle other groups-- and prepared to serve as "turn essential" teams when a group owner buy their location. - Interest from a number of business owners to acquire the rights to a group. The brand equity of the league will grow as fans support their local groups towards the play-offs and inter-league title/all-star occasions. In addition to putting on league events in their geographies, group owners are totally free to experiment with different principles, consisting of expert and amateur fights, tournaments, and various types of combating formats (i.e., grappling, battling, stand up battle, boxing, and other formats that become popular). Since the league is looking to achieve critical mass, preliminary franchises are priced at just $20,000 (as compared to most other franchises, sports or otherwise, and the discount is substantial). This advantageous pricing gives early adopters the possibility to recognize a considerable capital gain, because later owners will pay a premium. At the same time, Bonecrunch thoroughly screens potential owners to make sure that they have the long-lasting vision and needed capital for their group, and the league, to prosper. Contrast this concept with its nearby competitor, the International Fight League (IFL). The IFL has actually raised over $15 million dollars to draw in and develop league-owned groups tv deals. Its stock cost has had a roller coaster ride and currently trades at under $1 after reaching highs of $17 and the league struggles to contain expenses and accomplish earnings. Meanwhile, Bonecrunch is a grassroots effort that requires much less capital from a group of dedicated group owners, fitness instructors, and fighters in order to succeed. Using the franchise design, Bonecrunch can grow naturally and attain critical mass with a comparably tiny financial investment. Time will inform if this model can prosper in the highly competitive, unpredictable, and regulated world of combating. It is time to bring this vehicle to what has actually been a centrally controlled sport and find out exactly what kind of distinction it can make-- to fans, fighters, and the business owners who buy a franchise and owned and operate an expert sports team. In contrast, the leading sports franchises of our day-- the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL-- all was successful based on regional groups, regional owners, and local fans working together to produce something larger and greater than a single owner ever could. In this league, local owners develop teams with as numerous local fighters as possible, in order to gain the support of local fans. The brand name equity of the league will grow as fans support their regional teams to the play-offs and inter-league title/all-star occasions. In addition to putting on league occasions in their geographies, team owners are free to experiment with various concepts, including expert and amateur fights, tournaments, and different types of battling formats (i.e., grappling, battling, stand up fight, boxing, and other formats that become popular). At the same time, Bonecrunch thoroughly screens prospective owners to make sure that they have the long-term vision and required capital for their group, and the league, to be successful.
