A Vision For A Professional Battling League: Regional Fighters, Group Owners, And Fans There is, and constantly has been, a problem worldwide of expert battling: Unlike practically any other sport, a single entity controls the gamers. In boxing, a single well-known promoter practically destroyed the sport (and perhaps did) with the method he handled and controlled matches and fighters. Now, in the booming sport of mixed martial arts (MMA), the leading brands control the match ups and, in the case of the International Fight League, owned and operate the groups. In contrast, the leading sports franchises of our day-- the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL-- all succeeded based on regional groups, local owners, and regional fans interacting to create something larger and greater than a single owner ever could. Group owners gave up a bit in order to create something really special. It is time for a comparable vision to come to fruition in the combating world. Bonecrunch Fighting is a new league-based combating organization based on precisely this idea. In this league, local owners build teams with as many regional fighters as possible, in order to get the support of regional fans. The league is structured like a franchise, and looks for entrepreneurs with financial staying power to owned and operate and develop successful teams. Outcomes so far include: - An inaugural occasion that sold 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 leading management group with management and fighting market expertise. - Development of template marketing materials, task management tools, and agreements to successfully run events. - Agreements with 5 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 exceptional local fighters prepared to take on other groups-- and ready to work as "turn crucial" teams when a team owner acquire their location. - Interest from a number of business owners to buy the rights to a team. The brand equity of the league will grow as fans support their local groups towards the play-offs and inter-league title/all-star events. In addition to putting on league events in their geographies, group owners are complimentary to experiment with different principles, consisting of amateur and professional battles, competitions, and different types of combating formats (i.e., grappling, battling, stand up fight, boxing, and other formats that become popular). Due to the fact that the league is seeking to attain critical mass, initial franchises are priced at just $20,000 (compared to most other franchises, sports or otherwise, and the discount rate is significant). This helpful prices gives early adopters the possibility to understand a considerable capital gain, since later owners will pay a premium. At the very same time, Bonecrunch thoroughly screens prospective owners making sure that they have the long-lasting vision and needed capital for their team, and the league, to prosper.

Bonecrunch is a grassroots effort that requires much less capital from a group of committed team owners, fitness instructors, and fighters in order to prosper. Time will tell if this design can be successful in the extremely competitive, fickle, and regulated world of battling. It is time to bring this design to exactly what has actually been a centrally managed sport and find out what kind of difference it can make-- to fans, fighters, and the business owners who acquire a franchise and owned and operate a professional sports group. In contrast, the leading sports franchises of our day-- the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL-- all was successful based on regional teams, local owners, and local fans working together to create something bigger and higher than a single owner ever could. In this league, local owners construct groups with as numerous local fighters as possible, in order to gain the assistance of local fans.
