Not many amatuer fights right now. There is prankration figthing which is not pro here in the US. Unless you are talking about JJ tournaments and not amatuer MMA fighting.
There's a guy in Louisiana that does some pro/am shows. He has'nt been doing it for a very long time (probably about 7 shows or so right now). He does a pretty good job promoting the show to.
thanks to kibuninc and silentassassin. yes, trying to find out about amatuer mma fights. sounds like our boy down in louisiana has a good thing going. amatuer pankration? is this the one started by matthume?
Not Matt's. It's in a cage & the production is something gladiator ( Don't remember the correct name right now).
Hey Silent Assassin-
Is it Gladiator Challenge? A lot of guys come up from those shows. They've been around for awhile now.
We have a Pro/Am promotion up here in MT. We have mostly been doing Amateur shows lately, about one a month. We fight in a ring, no elbows at all and no knees to the head. You can check us out, get fighter applications,etc at: http://www.fightforce.tv/. We have quite a few video podcasts up there as well.
thanks to manpants for the info. very much appreciated!!!!
thanks to silentassassin. does matthume still put on fights on saturdays? been to quite a few of those some years back.
