Some of you may or may not know of my plans for 2010.
I am in the closing stages of presenting the first of many exciting new events. As has been discussed previously here on CW. I intend to produce a watered down version of our current MMA style event.
To simplify, it will be a NON submission based platform, focusing solely on a mix of stand up but allowing throws take downs & G n P only, any attempt at a ground sub will simply force the ref to stand back up the combatants.
The round times will be reduced to 3 mins due to the predicted increase of work rate by the fighter. Each event will feature 3 x 4 man tourney's.
We are considering 3-4 max weight catagories, again to give this the challenge style feels, displayed by the early UFC's.
This whole project is being offered to fighters of any oragin & background, it is not specificaly based on current MMA fighters, you are simply invited to join in if you wish. We are even anticipating general public who feel they can hang with a fighter to enter.
Above is a brief summary & I am sure you will want to know more details. For those who are genuinely interested in learning more & or competing, please e-mail me on the following email@example.com
Naturally I will engage as always in debate here @ CW.
The purse structure for this event is currently set @ the following, but as the popularity of this new event catches on, we are confident in increasing this purse structure further.
3 x 4 man tourney's = 3 x prelim runner ups each recieve £200 each. 3 x final runner ups recieve £500 each. 3 x Final winners recieve £1500 each.
So if you are interested in competeing in this or any future "Ultimate Knockout Challenge" events, again please send your CV & your interest to my e-mail addy
