A Vision For An Expert Battling League: Regional Fighters, Group Owners, And Fans There is, and always has actually been, a problem in the world of professional battling: Unlike practically any other sport, a single entity controls the players. In boxing, a single well-known promoter virtually messed up the sport (and probably did) with the way he handled and managed matches and fighters. Now, in the booming sport of combined martial arts (MMA), the leading brand names control the pair up and, in the case of 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 prospered based upon local teams, regional owners, and local fans collaborating to create something bigger and higher than a single owner ever could. Team owners gave up a little bit in order to develop something genuinely special. It is time for a similar vision to come to fruition in the fighting world. Bonecrunch Fighting is a new league-based combating organization based upon precisely this principle. In this league, regional owners construct teams with as lots of local fighters as possible, in order to get the assistance of local fans. The league is structured like a franchise, and looks for entrepreneurs with financial staying power to own and build successful teams. Outcomes 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 qualified and interested group owners. - Assembly of a top leadership group with management and combating industry know-how. - Development of template marketing materials, project management tools, and agreements to successfully run events. - Agreements with five leading MMA trainers and school owners (with four more in the works) who have actually put fighters into leading organizations. These trainers have a cadre of outstanding regional fighters ready to take on other teams-- and prepared to act as "turn key" groups when a team owner acquire their geography. - Interest from a number of entrepreneurs to purchase the rights to a group. The brand equity of the league will grow as fans support their regional groups to the play-offs and inter-league title/all-star occasions. In addition to putting on league events in their locations, group owners are complimentary to experiment with various principles, including amateur and expert fights, tournaments, and various types of combating formats (i.e., grappling, battling, stand up fight, boxing, and other formats that end up being popular). Because the league is seeking to achieve emergency, initial franchises are priced at just $20,000 (as compared to most other franchises, sports or otherwise, and the discount rate is substantial). This helpful prices provides early adopters the possibility to realize a significant capital gain, because later owners will pay a premium. At the very same time, Bonecrunch carefully screens possible owners making sure that they have the long-lasting vision and needed capital for their team, and the league, to prosper. The IFL has actually raised over $15 million dollars to draw in and produce league-owned teams television deals. Bonecrunch is a grassroots effort that needs much less capital from a group of dedicated team owners, fitness instructors, and fighters in order to be successful. Time will inform if this vehicle can succeed in the extremely competitive, unpredictable, and regulated world of fighting. It is time to bring this design to what has been a centrally managed sport and discover out exactly what kind of distinction it can make-- to fans, fighters, and the business owners who acquire a franchise and own an expert sports team. In contrast, the leading sports franchises of our day-- the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL-- all succeeded based on local groups, local owners, and local fans working together to produce something bigger and higher than a single owner ever could. In this league, local owners construct teams with as many regional fighters as possible, in order to acquire the support of regional fans. The brand name equity of the league will grow as fans support their local groups to the play-offs and inter-league title/all-star events. In addition to putting on league events in their locations, group owners are free to experiment with various ideas, consisting of professional and amateur fights, competitions, and various types of fighting formats (i.e., grappling, battling, stand up combat, boxing, and other formats that end up being popular). At the exact same time, Bonecrunch carefully screens possible owners to make sure that they have the long-lasting vision and required capital for their group, and the league, to be successful.
