10/07 Super Challenge: Has finally a premier
association been created in Brazil?
Has finally a premier association been created in
Brazil? This is the question which strikes my head
when I think about the Super Challenge event that will
take place next Saturday in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Of
course we - from Brazil - already tried to show an
image of greatest associations with Show Fight and
Jungle Fight. However the enough success was never
reached by any of these two events due to, whether not curious, so easy of being seen… …lack of enough people prepared behind the scenes.
Here in Brazil we already IVC and WVC, and if even
they had reasonable cards and levels, the old school
rules was a little catastrophic for any good propagation of both Association. Talking about JFC and Show Fight again, the mix of mismatches, weird information, plus self-centeredness took a little down the reputations of both. This is well-seen when the Super Challenge nor at least had its first edition, but with the card and the expectations did the fans and insiders to forget a little about the other two associations.
The first step of Super Challenge - a West Promotion &
Entertainment show - was the join a high-level staff,
headed by B-Tough Fight management, which was more than ready to show what a Professional MMA event needs. The president of West Promotion & Entertainment, Paulo Vasconcelos, had a lot of cautions and sagacity to choose people who besides understand of the stuff, have capacity to manage a good job. The result of this is also an unpublished partnership with Pride FC, which's sending a referee(Oshiro Moritaka) and a person of his staff for the show in next Saturday 7th.
The card is the primordial stuff of a fight event, and
this one of Super Challenge is great, with
well-rounded fighter battling three times in same
night to reach more reputation and a never seen before money prize of 35 thousand reais.
Teake a look on the card below and you'll identify
fighters with experience in WEF, RINGS, KOTC, IVC,
Shooto Japan, Pride Bushido, DEEP, MARS, Cage Rage,
Pancrase and many others.
