A Vision For An Expert Battling League: Regional Fighters, Group 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 gamers. In boxing, a single well-known promoter practically messed up the sport (and perhaps did) with the way he handled and controlled fighters and matches. Now, in the growing sport of combined martial arts (MMA), the leading brands control the match ups and, when it comes to the International Fight League, own the groups. On the other hand, the top sports franchises of our day-- the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL-- all succeeded based on regional teams, local owners, and regional fans collaborating to develop something larger and higher than a single owner ever could. Team owners quit a little bit in order to produce something truly special. It is time for a similar vision to come to fulfillment in the combating world. Bonecrunch Fighting is a brand-new league-based fighting company based upon precisely this concept. In this league, regional owners build groups with as numerous local fighters as possible, in order to get the support of local fans. The league is structured like a franchise, and looks for business owners with monetary staying power to own and construct effective groups. Outcomes so far include: - An inaugural occasion that offered out a 3600 seat arena in Sarasota Florida. - Top sponsors including the United States Marines and Budweiser. - Creation of the required legal documents to offer a franchise to interested and competent team owners. - Assembly of a top management team with management and battling industry proficiency. - Development of template marketing products, task management tools, and contracts to successfully run occasions. - Agreements with five top MMA trainers and school owners (with 4 more in the works) who have put fighters into leading organizations. These trainers have a cadre of outstanding regional fighters all set to handle other groups-- and ready to act as "turn essential" groups when a group owner buy their location. - Interest from a variety of entrepreneurs to acquire the rights to a group. When a network of at least five or 6 groups is operating, the advantages of this model become clearest. At that point, the league can start to attract national and regional sponsors, and television/pay per view interest-- the kind of recognition that no local promoter can produce separately. 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 placing on league events in their geographies, group owners are complimentary to try out various principles, including amateur and professional fights, tournaments, and different types of battling formats (i.e., grappling, battling, stand combat, boxing, and other formats that become popular). Since the league is seeking to attain critical mass, preliminary franchises are priced at only $20,000 (compared with most other franchises, sports or otherwise, and the discount is significant). This beneficial pricing 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 potential owners making sure that they have the long-term 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 groups television deals. Bonecrunch is a grassroots effort that needs much less capital from a group of committed team owners, trainers, and fighters in order to be successful. Time will tell if this model can succeed in the highly competitive, fickle, and regulated world of combating. It is time to bring this vehicle to what has been a centrally managed sport and find out what kind of distinction it can make-- to fans, fighters, and the entrepreneurs who buy a franchise and own a professional sports group. In contrast, the top sports franchises of our day-- the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL-- all succeeded based on local teams, regional owners, and local fans working together to develop something larger and higher than a single owner ever could.
