HOOKnSHOOT looking for real amateur fighters

How about a $2,900 belt you get to keep as an amateur champion.
How about a $2,900 belt you get to keep as an amateur champion.

HOOKnSHOOT established in 1994, running MMA since 1995 (second only to the UFC) – It seems the MMA scene has been overtaken with a plague of more shows than fighters.

It’s seemingly impossible to put together even 10 fights anymore.   No one wants to fight out of their own show or comfort zone.  And new promoters (some of whom have never set foot on a mat or trained a day) don’t seem to be doing anything to compensate amateurs for their hard work or even care about anything other than making money.

Strikeforce possible Pro Elite buyer?

Reports indicate that the San Jose, CA based promotion Strikeforce may purchase Pro Elite. According to MMA Weekly’s MMA Insider blog, the acquisition of Pro Elite could lead to MMA’s return to CBS as well as Showtime.

While the company that retains Pro Elite’s assets could find themselves on network television, it remains to be seen how many, or if any, of Pro Elite’s fighter contracts would transfer over. It has also been reported that an announcement of the purchase could occur sometime today or Friday. Strikeforce executive Mike Afromowitz came out yesterday and made it clear that no deal had yet been finalized.

“Any reports of a done deal are a complete fantasy. It’s complicated, and that’s why I don’t want to speculate. If anything is done, it will be very technical. It’s not as straightforward as you think.”

EliteXC fighters seek release

It is being reported that the fighters still in contract limbo due to the failure of the sale of EliteXC have joined together with the Mixed Martial Artists Fighters Association and forwarded a draft of complaint to EliteXC officials to have them officially released from the company. They have warned in the complaint that if acknowlegement of their release is not granted within a specefied time frame, they will in turn file the complaint in open court.

The complaint itself was brought about by multiple fighters’ agents banding together with the MMAFA to speed up the release status of their collective clients’ contracts that are still owned by EliteXC.

We will have to wait and see what action, if any, EliteXC will take on this complaint but the agents feel like this will gain their fighters freedom to fight for other companies, as opposed to being stagnant and unable to earn an income while ProElite tries to sell their company.
