Zach George

Jack 9 just uploaded some more IKF TV Fight Clips and in the new mix is a look back at current MMA powerhouse Zach George (Undefeated in MMA) of Norman, Oklahoma when he fought for the IKF Amateur North American Title against Chad Morgan.

At the 2003 IKF/TKO USA Nationals, some thought Zach George (Watonga, Oklahoma, USA, 6-1/3, 136, 5'6", 19, Scott Mincey) had a questionable win for his title against Robert Elledge of California. Elledge opted to fight on a local card in California on the night before the 2003 IKF North American Tournament (Before this was made into the big IKF tournament). This was sad for George who had planned to fight Elledge there but even more sad for Elledge because the fighter he was scheduled to fight in California no showed leaving Elledge without a fight.

Probably a good for Elledge because a very different Zach George showed up in South Carolina at IKF Promoter Ray Thompson's hosted, 2003 IKF North American Tournament. George looked like his winning multi time World Champion trainer Scott Mincey as he picked apart first time fighter Chad Morgan of Providence, North Carolina, USA trained by Ronnie Copeland on his way to winning the 2003 IKF North American title by TKO at 1:29 of round 1, by 3 knockdown rule. After one devastating loss in MMA Elledge pretty much dropped out of fighting while George moved forward with a great Professional MMA Career.

Also added from the same event was the 2003 IKF North American title bout between Bill Jadine of Mondovi, Wisconsin, USA (11-3/1, 194, 6'3", 25, Michael Lind) and Adrian Turpin of Anderson, South Carolina, USA (10-8/1, 184, 6', 35, Ben Turpin) for the Cruiserweight title. This bout went the distance.

UFC Buys Pride
For Less Than $70M

Associated Press

NEW YORK: The majority owners of Ultimate Fighting Championship have agreed to buy their biggest mixed martial arts rival, Pride Fighting Championships, in a deal that will establish megafights among the outfits' titleholders and possibly attract huge pay-per-view audiences.

"This is really going to change the face of MMA. Literally creating a sport that could be as big around the world as soccer. I liken it somewhat to when the NFC and AFC came together to create the NFL.", Lorenzo Fertitta, one of UFC's majority owners

Company executives declined to comment on the sales price, but a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press that brothers Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta will purchase the Japan-based Pride for less than $70 million. The person was not authorized to speak to reporters and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The deal was completed Tuesday and was announced during a news conference in Tokyo, where Lorenzo Fertitta has been negotiating with Nobuyuki Sakakibara, the majority owner and chief executive of Dream Stage Entertainment Inc., Pride's owner. "We have been talking to Pride for probably about 11 months," Lorenzo Fertitta said. "It's been a long, drawn-out process but we finally were able to put the two brands together."

To buy the company, the brothers created a new entity called Pride FC Worldwide Holdings LLC. The newly formed company will take over Pride assets, including its trademarks, video library and valuable roster of fighters, from Dream Stage. The Fertitta brothers, who own Las Vegas-based Zuffa LLC, the parent company of UFC, intend to keep the well-known Pride name and promote fights under that brand. The acquisition marks a new phase in the brothers' quest to dominate the burgeoning world of mixed martial arts since they bought the struggling UFC in 2001.

The deal allows the Fertitta brothers to broker the biggest MMA fights possible in the near future, increasing their influence in this sports entertainment business. "We will be able to literally put on the fights that everyone wants to see," Lorenzo Fertitta said. "It will allow us to put on some of the biggest fights ever." In the past, there has been at least one case in which Pride and UFC couldn't hammer out a deal to put their top fighters in the ring together. With Pride in their pocket, the Fertitta brothers intend to ensure that never happens again. The sale gives Pride more financial backing to expand the business internationally after suffering a recent financial blow.

Major sponsor Fuji Television Network Inc. dropped Pride in June after a tabloid linked Pride to the Japanese mob -- something Sakakibara has denied vigorously. To help bolster Pride, the company staged two PPV fights in Las Vegas. Neither was a financial success. The fights gained exposure for Pride but lost money, making the sale of Pride more likely. "I think it certainly weakened their position," Lorenzo Fertitta said. "One of our goals is to get back on a major platform back here in Japan." Lorenzo Fertitta said he'll be looking to expand Pride internationally.

Buying Pride is the latest in a series of acquisitions that the brothers have made in the last six months. Zuffa snapped up World Extreme Cagefighting and World Fighting Alliance last year. Similar to Pride, buying WFA gave UFC the rights to a popular fighter named Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. Jackson will face UFC's most popular fighter, Chuck Liddell, the current light heavyweight champ in Las Vegas, on May 26 on PPV.

Thanks to a surge in popularity, the brothers' investment in UFC and MMA in general has begun to pay off. Last year, UFC cracked $200 million in PPV revenue, putting it on par with World Wrestling Entertainment Inc.

UFC stages fights in arenas across the country and airs a clutch of successful television shows on Spike TV. It has also opened an office in London, looking toward establishing itself internationally. The brothers also run Station Casinos Inc. in Las Vegas. Lorenzo Fertitta is president and Frank Fertitta is chairman and chief executive of Station Casinos, a public company that was recently agreed to be purchased by a private equity investor group that includes key members of the Fertitta family.

March 17th, 2007 - Dalton, Georgia, USA

ISCF Representative Cal Cooper
Saturday night, March 17th, Ken Coffey and his Xtreme Event Productions, LLC Promotions team hosted approximately 1,550 fight fans to "XFF IX NW at the Georgia Trade Center, Dalton, Georgia, USA. Here is the "Play by Play" of the nights action below.

  1. AMATEUR MMA: Chad Walker (211) Vs Randy Thompson (208)
    This bout started with a good scramble with Walker getting the takedown. The large crowd was enthusiastic. Walker strikes from the top until he is able to take Randy's back. The position deteriorated into a 'schoolyard' choke which Walker couldn't get beneath Thompson's chin. More scrambling landed Thompson on top in the guard. The crowd liked the reversal and cheered enthusiastically for Thompson's efforts.
    Round Two started with some standup efforts, but both fighters looked tired from adrenal rush. Most of the round went to the ground with Walker in top position trying to stay busy and score points. Thompson stood up at the end of Round 2 looking undamaged.
    Round three saw Walker get his hand caught in the rope connectors and twist it around good and tight. Referee George Allen stopped the bout long enough to free Walker, and Thompson briefly celebrated a wrongly perceived victory. Sadly for him the fight wasn't over and while both guys fought hard to an exhausted finish, Walker would prove victorious by decision.
    Winner: Chad Walker by Unanimous Decision.

  2. AMATEUR MMA: Tracy Steele (224) Vs James Faye (250)
    After a slow start to a takedown, Tracy Steel, a fighter of considerable girth, ended up on top of James Faye and went to work with some effective shoulder smashes to the face. The action got slow on the ground and this fact the crowd did not enjoy. Referee George Allen, after an initial warning, stood the fighters up at the end of the first round.
    In round two Faye was able to reverse a defensive ground position and eventually pound out a non-defending Steele as the referee stopped the bout in round two.
    Winner: James Faye by Referee Stoppage Due to Strikes.

  3. AMATEUR MMA: Eric Runci (155) Vs John Cofer (153)
    This was the first really competitive bout of the evening and it went quick. Both fighters came out in great condition and fought intensely for the duration. Cofer had great defense and looked good on his feet. He had good ring work. The fight stayed on its feet almost exclusively with a lot of ring movement. Runci managed to bulldog Cofer into the neutral corner twice. On the second occasion he was able to score with punches and get a referee stoppage over the shaken Cofer. The fight was short, competitive and intense.
    Winner: John Cofer by Referee Stoppage Due to Strikes.

  4. AMATEUR MMA: *Jason Gates (181) Vs Jack Kisner Jr. (181) Jack Kisner entered to loud applause from his X3 supporters, many of whom were in attendance. The fight went to the ground rather quickly with Gates in Kisner's guard. Kisner seemed comfortable on the ground, and with vocal and opinionated support from the crowd he scored a triangle toward the middle of round one.
    Winner: Jack Kisner by Triangle Choke.

  5. AMATEUR MMA: Anthony Holder (259) Vs *Mark Hughes (250) This bout was notable both due to the action in the ring and beneath it. Holder is an aggressive kid with a Tank Abbott physique who knows how to scrap. His opponent was the latest in a long line of jacked up and well-trained Knuckle Up fighters, Mark Hughes (no, this is not Matt Hughes' twin, a fighter of the same name). The bout was aggressive and from the start. The action was up and down with plenty of head hunting. Mark got a cut on his temple early on, possibly from an unintended head butt. The real excitement took place when the venerable boxing ring's tensions chains underneath popped a pin with a loud metallic 'ping!' as the heavy fighters hit the ropes. Remarkably, as Referee Andy Foster pointed out, Holder helped Hughes not fall out of the ring as he started to topple over backwards through the now-slack ropes. Such is the sportsmanship of competitive MMA fighters. One of the four ring corner posts tilted in and the ring floor sagged. XFF's crew went to work and in about 20 minutes the ring was repaired and reinforced, and the fight continued right where it left off.

FRIDAY, MARCH 16th, 2007, AT 2:05 AM, PT

March 10th, 2007 - Waterloo, Iowa, USA

IKF & ISCF Representatives Mike & Teri Storm
Exactly one week after what some say was the largest snowstorm since 1998 went through the Great Plains, the folks in Waterloo, Iowa were ready, rowdy and looking for some action which is exactly what Promoter Russ O'Connell gave them on Saturday, March 10th with KICKFEST 2007 at the 5 Sullivan Brothers Convention Center.

Russ put together an event that combined International Rules Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts that included not one but TWO title fights. The ISCF Amateur Iowa State Lightweight Title and the ISCF Amateur Iowa State Middleweight Title were both up for grabs in the co-main event. Recognition must also be given to Brian Robinson, Jason Miller, Jamie Mether, Shawn Price, Rhonda Harmening, Amanda Malonie and juniors Noah Dinsdale, Marcus Harrison, Jordan Harrigan and Alex Herrara for putting on some fine exhibitions for the capacity crowd. Here are the results of the fights:

  1. International Rules Light Welterweight
    Bobby Kastli, 1-0-0, Waterloo, IA, Russ O'Connell vs, Steve Woock, 0-1-0, Des Moines, IA
    Round 1: Kastli had a tremendous height and reach advantage which he used to stalk Woock around the ring. He threw left jabs and right crosses throughout the round while Woock tried to keep him off with kicks to Kastli's legs and body. Toward the end of the round, Kastli waded through Woock's kicks and delivered a left/right combination that bloodied Woock's nose and sent him retreating for the remainder of the round.
    Round 2: This round was nearly a duplicate of the first round. Kastli continued his left/right combinations and added some kicks of his own. Woock continued to throw his kicks in an effort to stall Kastli's attack but was ineffective through most of the round.
    Round 3: Kastli came across the ring at the start of the round and executed a solid kick to Woock's body that made Woock double over and wince in obvious pain. Kastli failed to follow-up on it and allowed Woock to recover. Shortly after that, Kastli delivered another left/right combination to Woock's head, stunning Woock but again Kastli failed to follow-up and allowed Woock to recover. The round ended with Kastli following Woock around the ring as described in the first two rounds.
    All judges scored the fight 30-27, winner by Unanimous Decision, Bobby Kastli.

  2. Mixed Martial Arts Welterweight
    Nick Kilburg 1-0, Waterloo, IA, Russ O'Connell vs, Neil Meier 2-3, East Moline, IL, Mike Smith
    Round 1: At the start of the round, Meier came across the ring and tried to end the fight with one strong looping right hand to Kilburg's head but he missed and threw himself off-balance and to the canvass. Kilburg appeared reluctant to fight on the ground and as a result he let Meier back to a standing position. They moved around the ring until a clinch got Meier close enough to Kilburg to allow Meier to wrap his arms and legs around Kilburg, pulling him down to the canvass. Kilburg managed to maintain a top mount while throwing punches at Meier. Kilburg slid back and attempted an ankle look with no result eventually giving it up and standing bringing both fighters to their feet. Next it was Kilburg's turn to attack. He rushed Meier, took him down and quickly got onto Meier's back with his hooks in and a rear choke. Meier defended the choke well enough to survive till the end of the round.
    Round 2: It was Kilburg's turn to want to take the fight to the canvass. He attacked Meier and took him down and controlled Meier from a top and side mount during the first half of the round. Eventually the action stalled and Referee Dean Stone stood both fighters up and started them again. Again, Kilburg attacked and took Meier down to the canvas and finished the last half of the round much like he started the first half.
    Round 3: Kilburg took Meier down early in the round and was able to gain side control where he delivered several knees to Meier's body. Meier twisted away from the knees and was able to tie Kilburg up at which time they became inactive and were stood up to fight. Kilburg took Meier down again and the round ended with Kilburg on top.
    All judges scored the fight 30-27, winner by Unanimous Decision, Nick Kilburg.

  3. Mixed Martial Arts Welterweight
    Matt Bauler 2-10, Waterloo, IA, Russ O'Connell vs, Tyler Reams 6-1, Charles City, IA
    Round 1: Bauler came across the ring attacking with his head down. Reams caught him coming in and caught Bauler in a guillotine choke forcing Bauler to tap out at :50 seconds of the first round.
    Winner by Tapout, Tyler Reams.

  4. International Rules Heavyweight
    Roy Jones, 3-0-0, Waterloo, IA, Russ O'Connell vs, Casey Johnson, 2-3-0, Roscoe, IL, Rick Bloyer
    Round 1: Both fighters came at each other early. Johnson, the shorter of the two fighters had to bull his way inside to hit Jones while Jones was content to stay outside with his superior reach advantage. Both gave as good as they got with neither fighter hurting the other. Toward the end of the round, Johnson, showboating, dropped his hands and allowed Jones to punch him in the head with 5 good shots to prove he couldn't be hurt and probably not scoring a lot of points with the judges. There were very few kicks thrown in the round.
    Round 2: The action in this round was much like the first. Jones appeared to be able to move a little better this round and was able to keep Johnson from crowding him as much.
    Round 3: A tired Jones was less able to keep Johnson off this round. Johnson was able to connect with shots to Jones' head and body on several occasions during the round but Jones refused to go down. A better round for Johnson but it was too little too late. There were very few kicks thrown in the fight.
    Judges scored the fight 29-28, 29-28, 30-27, winner by Unanimous Decision, Roy Jones.

  5. Mixed Martial Arts Lightweight
    Joe Ayala 3-0, Waterloo, IA, Russ O'Connell vs, Kyle Reams 2-2, Charles City, IA
    Round 1: Reams attacked Ayala early, picking Ayala up around the waist and dumping him on his back. Reams controlled the top mounted position for the greater part of the round. Reams made a mistake by getting too high and allowing Ayala to get a leg around his neck and getting him in a triangle choke. At 2:20 of the round Reams ended up tapping out.
    Winner by Tapout, Joseph Ayala.

  6. International Rules Light Middleweight
    Josh Bumgarner, 3-1-0, Waterloo, IA, Russ O'Connell vs, Joe Duncan, 1-2-0, Roscoe, IL, Rick Bloyer
    Round 1: Bumgarner came ahead and began tagging Duncan with about a dozen left/right combinations to Duncan's head that had Duncan retreating the whole round. Duncan seemed unable to mount any offense to get on track.
    Round 2: Bumgarner started the round with a few kicks but soon went back to the left/right combinations that worked for him in the first round. Duncan attempted to finish the round strong with a short burst but was not able to do enough to take the round.
    Round 3: Bumgarner appeared as if he felt he had the fight won and was content to stay away from Duncan. Duncan became bolder and showed more offense by moving forward as Bumgarner backed away. Duncan's offense was not enough to move the judges decisions in his direction.
    All judges scored the fight 30-27, winner by Unanimous Decision, Josh Bumgarner.

  7. ISCF Amateur Iowa State Lightweight Title
    Mike Plazola, Mike Plazola, 6-2, Waterloo, IA, Russ O'Connell vs, Tory Bogguess, *2-6, Silvis, IL
    Round 1: Plazola attacked first to take Bogguess down. On the way down, Bogguess put Plazola in a guillotine but was unable to maintain the choke from the bottom.Bogguess was able to reverse the position but was unable to gain any advantage. The whole round consisted of both fighters continually changing positions from bottom to top with neither able to take clear control. It was a very fast paced round with all three judges giving the edge in the round to Bogguess.
    Round 2: As the round started, Bogguess ran across the ring and threw a flying "Superman" punch that landed on the face of Plazola knocking Plazola on his back with his head under the ropes. Bogguess failed to follow-up on the knockdown and allowed Plazola to get up where the round continued much as the first round did. While Plazola was on his back, Bogguess started to stand at which time Plazola threw an illegal up-kick hitting Bogguess in the face. Referee Dean Stone stopped time and admonished Plazola for the strike. The round ended with all three judges giving the round to Bogguess.
    Round 3: Bogguess attempted a flying knee to start the round but missed Plazola and was taken down by Plazola. Plazola was able to get a full top mount on Bogguess in Bogguess' corner where he proceeded to punch Bogguess in the face repeatedly. Bogguess was unable to defend himself from the barrage of punches and tapped out at 1:59 of the round.
    Winner by Tapout and ISCF Amateur Iowa State Lightweight Champion Mike Plazola.
  8. ISCF Amateur Iowa State Middleweight Title
    Jeff Bunger 7-2-1, Waterloo, IA, Russ O'Connell vs, David Severe 4-2, Davenport, IA, Gary Schroeder
    Round 1: Bunger came out and landed a right hook to Severe's jaw putting Severe on his back. Bunger jumped on Severe and from the top position he proceeded to punch at Severe's head. Severe was able to block many of the punches and defended himself to the satisfaction of Referee Dean Stone. After surviving the onslaught, Severe was able to work his way back to a standing position just to have Bunger charge him again and take him down once more. Severe, from the bottom, was able to slide a hip out from underneath Bunger and managed to reach behind Bunger's back and lock a kamura onto Bunger's arm. Bunger had his hand poised and was ready to tap when Severe slipped and lost the arm lock. Severe was able to slip out the side and rolled onto Bunger's back. Severe hooked his feet around Bunger's waist and between his legs laying Bunger flat onto his stomach. Severe then proceeded to pound Bunger on the head. Referee Dean Stone stopped the fight at 3:45 of the round when Bunger proved incapable of effectively defending himself from this position.
    Winner when referee stopped the contest and ISCF Amateur Iowa State Middleweight Champion David Severe

March 10th, 2007 - Albany, Georgia, USA

Matthew Waller ISCF Representative - Albany Civic Center, Albany, Georgia, USA
On March 10th the Albany Civic Center saw old fight fans present and new ones being initiated as there has not been a live MMA show in Albany... Until now! ISCF Promoters John Turner and Richard Cox found a beautiful venue in Albany and thought it would look a little better with a cage resting on its floor. They called pro fighter and future ISCF promoter Scott Harper (who's event you will be reading about next week) and made that dream come true. Guests included UFC fighters Junior Assuncao and Rory Singer who refereed along with pro fighter and superstar referee Cam McHargue. Many fans of the sport showed up to watch the Mixed Martial Arts event, which judging from the history of the sport, I feel is family oriented enough that I brought my own children to watch and enjoy. The action was as follows;

  1. 155 AMATEUR MMA
    Cory Lippel Vs Randy Wilkes
    Wilkes lands a few kicks and punches looking to cover the distance and gets a takedown and takes Lippell's back. Wilkes throws a few punches and lands a heel kick in the stomach of Lippell, trying to open him up and get a rear naked choke. Lippell shakes Wilkes off, lands in Wilkes's guard and throws a few punches just as the bell rings.
    Round 2 Both fighters throw a few kicks and Lippell gets the takedown, Wilkes gets a reversal off the takedown and lands in mount. Lippell scrambles and rolls, but leaves his arm out. Wilkes takes the arm bar for the tap.
    Winner by arm bar at 1:33 in round 2 Randy Wilkes.

  2. 160 AMATEUR MMA
    Ryan McClellan Vs Joel Nettles
    McCellon comes out with a few kicks and then gets the clinch followed by a takedown. McCellon gets the mount and lands some solid strikes to the ribs of Nettles. Nettles rolls and McCellon takes his back and sinks in a rear naked choke for the tap.
    Winner by rear naked choke at 1:50 of round 1 Ryan McCellon.

  3. 170 AMATEUR MMA
    Jason Barrett Vs Chris Newsome
    Strikes were exchanged by both fighters and Newsome gets a takedown. Newsome in the guard of Barrett and Barrett gets an arm bar for the win.
    Winner by arm bar at 1:10 of round 1 Jason Barrett

  4. 140 AMATEUR MMA
    John Puerta Vs William Reynolds
    Both fighters danced around the cage sizing one another up. Reynolds reaches in and works a takedown and lands in the guard of Puerta. The action was stalling so referee Rory Singer stood both fighters up. Reynolds quickly works another takedown and begins to land strikes to the head of Puerta as the round ends.
    Round 2 Kicks and strikes thrown by both fighters and Reynolds lands another takedown landing in Puerta's guard. Puerta was caught up against the fence for a moment but quickly scrambles and gets out only to stand up and give a smile to Reynolds. Both fighters entered into a slugfest and Reynolds gets a takedown and works quickly to secure a rear naked choke that forced Puerta to tap.
    Winner by rear naked choke at 2:28 of round 2 Cody Reynolds

  5. 155 AMATEUR MMA
    Lynard Dicks Vs Jimmy Smith
    Smith opens the round up with a few kicks, but Dicks responded by taking down Smith and working a choke. Smith escapes and gets side control and answers the choke of Dicks with a choke of his own, landing a head and arm choke that made Dicks tap.
    Winner by head and arm choke at 2:18 of round 1 Jimmy Smith.
  6. 185 AMATEUR MMA

    Dan Funes Vs Jason Hickey
    Both fighters raced out and land a storm of kicks and punches and Hickey takes the fight to the ground. Funes gets side control and passes to half guard, and follows up with full mount landing a barrage of strikes that made referee Cam McHargue stop the bout.
    Winner by referee stoppage at 2:52 of round 1 Dan Funes.

  8. 185 AMATEUR MMA

    Winner by referee stoppage at 3:07 of round 1 Heath Davis.
    *Not to take anything away from Davis, I would like to include that Shawn Brooks took the bout on less than 24 hours notice.

    ISCF HQ Addition: We are just wondering WHY Pro "BOXER" Jay Watts (2-8) is fighting in an MMA bout... And wondering WHY this bout was over in only 17 seconds... What do we smell here?

  10. 170 PRO MMA
    Douglas Lima Vs Josh Hancock
    Hancock throws some high head kicks, but Lima back out of range until he was ready to land some strikes of his own. Lima steps in and lands a few punches that made Hancock back up and then cover. Hancock falls to the ground and Lima begins to throw strikes which made the referee stop the bout.

ISCF Loses A Young Amateur
MMA Fighter As John Adams Passes Away

Special e-mail sent to the ISCF
This e-mail is to inform everyone at the ISCF and all over the United States that Amateur MMA Lightweight John Adams passed away March 9th 2007 in a tragic car accident.

John was an outstanding MMA fighter who trained hard and dedicated himself to the sport. I remember his first fight against Charlie Carpenter. John went all three rounds with NO WATER (WOW!) He always told me that he loved cage fighting and it was his dream to one day become a fighter. I got John the registration form and he filled it out and sent it in. When I told him he was finally registered to fight I thought he was gonna cry he was so happy. His last fight was held in Grain Valley, Missouri on September 9th, 2006 at Clash in the Cage 6 against Ryan Witten. I've never seen someone dominate a fight the way John did that night. Leaving us with his amateur record at 1-1. John will never be forgotten in his hometown of Rolla, Missouri. In our eyes he was already a champion.

R.I.P. John Adams ... 11-1-1987 ~ 3-9-2007

ISCF Sanctioned Event!

To reply to those who have been calling the ISCF, back on February 17th, 2007, there was an Amateur MMA event called "Ramada Inn The Cage III". This event was held in St. Joe Missouri.

From what we have been informed by several fighters and trainers, the promoter of this event informed several people that this was an ISCF Sanctioned Event. When these trainers and fighters asked where the ISCF Event Representative was, the Promoter, (Rob Meritt -Spelling?-), told them that the Event Representative was Steve Crawford and he "No Showed".

For the record, this event was "NOT" Sanctioned by the ISCF!

From what we have discovered, it was not sanctioned at all. His matchmaker did contact Mr. Crawford to inquire about ISCF Sanctioning. Mr. Crawford informed him of what he had to do to get his event sanctioned (Which is Missouri State Law). However, Mr. Meritt never contacted Mr. Crawford again or anyone here at the ISCF. For future reference, please note what it says at the top of our ISCF Events page:

NOTICE: If you have been told that a certain event is an ISCF Sanctioned Event and it is NOT Listed on these pages, then it IS NOT an ISCF Sanctioned Event! If You know of such an event, please notify us by e-mail at

What a Fuss Over Something So Simple...

From Steve Fossum - ISCF
It appears that the article we posted below had a few people not too pleased with being associated with it. The key word here is "Associated" and I'd like you to remember it at the end. Those who called upset were not even the focus point of the article. They were just associated with the main topic.

One thing to point out though is that the focus point of the article (which was written by an outside writer who submitted it to the ISCF) is that the writers main point of attack (If you want to call it an attack) was at the ISCF for allowing a Pro MMA fighter to fight as an Amateur on an ISCF Sanctioned event. We didn't want to hide the fact that "WE" made an error, so we posted the article. What many do not know is that there were A LOT more people listed in the article that the writer was basically "Throwing under the bus" per say at their practices of business in the MMA World. We spoke to the author and expressed why we thought these people should be deleted from the article. We also took out a lot of additional personal "Opinions" of the writer towards some of the fighters and promoters in the article.

What the writer found interesting was the connection between this one fighter and the promotions he was associated with. According to the writer he thought he was pointing out a "Smoking Gun" bit of news which we thought wasn't necessary to make the point. As he discovered these ties, from that point on his article snowballed into several other findings that the writer thought was of interest to the MMA World and directly related to the fighter in question. Turns out that the ISCF was not the only event this Pro MMA fighter was allowed to fight on as an amateur, which is where the article expanded into other areas.

Since it's posting last night we have had contact with 2 of the promoters in question who the writer speaks about and one fighter/promoter. The first person we heard from was Chad Bergmeier of Iowa. Mr. Bergmeier took the time to explain to us that the writer had some facts wrong about promoting MMA in Iowa. What we discovered was that the writer was writing mainly about "Amateur" MMA and his story read as though he meant both Amateur and Pro MMA. That was fixed and the word "Amateur" placed into the article about Iowa rules and regulations where needed.

Earlier today, Promoter Kris Ottem called us to inform us that she is not a Promoter of Ironman challenge. The writer had given us sources to check to confirm this and Ottem's web site address where we found the Ironman Challenge posters. Our staff here called some trainers and verified that Ottem's Northstar Promotions was associated with the Ironman Challenge, which according to Ottem today, it is not. So for the record, Travis Fulton is the sole promoter and matchmaker for Ironman Challenge and Ottem's Northstar Promotions is not associated with the event. Travis Fulton is the matchmaker for Ottem's Northstar Promotions though.

Finally, last night we received an e-mail from Travis Fulton. I won't go into detail what the mail said because he may think we have done him wrong again by sharing the content with you here. I will just say it was not a "Nice" e-mail. Mr. Fulton also called the office here last night when were out, and left a message for us. I personally returned his e-mail with my number asking him to call me back, but no call was made. Fulton wanted to make it clear he did not matchmake the Iowa Kickfest Events, so we correctly noted this on the story. Fulton called us again today and was asked to hold, but he didn't want to and hung up. We called him back but got no answer.

It seems that there are some issues that need to be addressed here. What Mr. Fulton needs to know is that we here at the ISCF had NO Intention of insulting him as a Promoter or Fighter. The writer himself found it a surprise that Mr. Fulton had fought the fighter in question in his article "4" times in less than 4 months, which you have to admit, is a lot. From there, he took off on some issues in his first draft of the article. Before posting his article, we deleted quite a bit from that "First Draft" before the first posting of the article. If Mr. Fulton is still angry about the article, we're sorry. However, what are we sorry for? That a writer wanted to point out an ISCF error and his name was brought into the conversation because of "Association?" Lets not miss the point that the ISCF was also attacked in the article, but we still posted it.

Here is something to think about Travis... In my kickboxing career I had a lot of fights, but I never fought pro and I never fought any "Big Name" opponents on a big show. So by having a lot of fights, shouldn't I be talked about? Well, the truth is, "NO!" Having a lot of fights and having a lot of Great fights against well known Great fighters are two "VERY" different things. People don't talk about Steve Fossum as a fighter because I wasn't one of the TOP DOGS! When you "ARE" a Top Dog you are going to be talked about by a lot of people. Some will praise you and some will down you, but what counts is that "They are still talking about you!"

This is what happens when you're a star in your field. People talk crap about all well known athletes as well as praise them. You have read many times the slaps top MMA fighters have taken such as Tito Ortiz, Chuck Lidell, Dan Severn, The Shamrocks, Randy Couture and the list goes on and on. They don't stop and reply... They just keep moving forward which is why they are still "Top Dogs!" The critics talk a lot of crap about other athletes in other sports as well, baseball, football, basketball, whatever...but they too, continue to keep moving forward and they pay very little attention to some article that has them associated with someone else.

Here is something else to think about in regards to my comment, "Having a lot of fights and having a lot of Great fights against well known Great fighters are two "VERY" different things."... People bagged on a boxer named Julio Cesar Chavez. Remember him? they bagged on him for only fighting as they said, "Taxi Drivers". However, he must have fought some pretty tough Taxi Cab Drivers because he sure made a name for himself. I didn't know all these great boxers were "Taxi Cab" drivers, but heck, if someone wrote that they were, well, then they must... right?

Before many of us knew who Julio Cesar Chavez was, he had already had his hand raised as a Champion many times. Before Julio Cesar Chavez lost a bout he had gone 91-0! Many say he had fought those so called "Taxi Cab drivers" during that time, but again, I had no idea these guys all drove Taxi's... I had only heard of them as Great boxers...

During his 91-0 run he started off by winning the WBC Super Featherweight Title against Mario Martinez (51-10-2, September 13th, 1984) and defended it "NINE" times! He also won the WBA Lightweight Title against Mario Martinez (47-6, on November 21st, 1987). He unified the WBC and WBA Lightweight Titles on October 19th, 1988 against Jose Luis Ramirez (102-9, October 29th, 1988). He won the WBC Light Welterweight Title on May 13th, 1989 against Roger Mayweather (56-13). He unified the WBC and IBF Light Welterweight Titles on March 17th, 1990 when he defeated Meldrick Taylor (38-8-1) defending both titles several times, including the well known "Mega Mexico fight" against Greg Haugen (40-10-1, February 20th, 1993) that hosted 132,247 spectators at the Azteca Stadium in Mexico City, Mexico. He also fought to a majority draw against Pernell Whitaker (40-4-1, September 10th, 1993) in a defense of his WBC Welterweight Title. Wow, and all those guys drove Taxis?

His first loss came on January 29th, 1994, 14 years after he turned Pro. In this bout Chavez suffered the first knockdown of his career and was penalized one point in the 7th and 11th for low blows. He lost this bout and his WBC title to Frankie Randall (59-18-1) by an akward split decision of 114-113, 113-114 and 111-116. Four months later in May of 2005, he avenged his only loss and won the title back, stopping Randall in the 8th round. He defended his WBC title 3 more times before meeting a fighter you may have heard of named Oscar De La Hoya (38-4) on June 7th, 1996. The much younger 23 year old De La Hoya beat the 34 year old Chavez by TKO on June 7th, 1984. Chavez won 5 more bouts before getting his rematch with De La Hoya in September of 1998, a bout he lost by TKO in round 9 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. After that bout he went 7-3 in his last 10 fights, fighting in his final bout on September 17th, 2005 at the America West Arena in Phoenix, Arizona where he lost to a fighter named Grover Wiley (30-8) in the 5th round. In the end Chavez had fought 116 times, winning 108 (87 wins by KO/TKO), losing 6 with 2 draws. What is my point? It's all about WHO he fought and more importantly, "They are still talking about him!"

OK, you fought a guy without many fights 4 times... Many would say the guy is a "Chump" because he hasn't won a lot. I'm not saying it, just trying to make a point here so follow along. Has Travis Fulton fought a lot of "Chumps?" Some will say yes, some will say no, it's not my place to judge so I don't and never do. You have been in the ring with some of the best such as Jeremy Horn (Over 100 MMA fights himself), Dan Severn, Rich Franklin, Forrest Griffin, Mike Whitehead just to name a few. Sure, you may have some fights in there that some will ask "Why did you fight him?" But lets face it Travis, you fought, those questioning you didn't, and if they did, are they Travis Fulton? I don't know of anyone in the MMA world that has never heard of you. Saying this, WHY would anyone here at the ISCF want to hurt you? We don't and I don't believe the story writer did either. It's easy for many to be a critic about you with this Mike Kofoot guy but you fighting him was not the point of the article. You were just part of "HIS - Mike Kofoot's" story.

What needs to be known is that the issues the writer brought up in the article are indeed issues that should be and need to be addressed to continue the positive growth of MMA. Every time something like this happens (Pros Vs Amateurs) it gives the Boxing Commissions and Dana White's story about the need to outlaw - ban Amateur MMA more fuel and ammo to attack MMA with. Especially now as they see the sport of MMA (Fighters, Promotions and Fans) rapidly growing and their sport of boxing is slowing down at the box office more and more. So you shouldn't worry too much what all these people are saying about you. The fact that "They are still talking about you" speaks positively enough. remember, you were just "Associated" with the story.

You Gotta Give It Up For MMA Fighter
Mike Kofoot
His Record Expresses The Yin & Yang Of MMA Regulations

Special Article Sent To The ISCF

Requested Additions and Corrections
Were made by the ISCF at 8:10 PM and 9:25 PM, March 5th.

If there were ever a great example of how the sport of MMA should "NOT" be done, one only needs to point to an MMA fighter such as Mike Kofoot. As many who read the ISCF pages know, the ISCF takes pride in assuring amateurs don't get matched up against Pro MMA fighters. However, there are still many unsanctioned shows done by promoters who could care less about fighter safety and have no problem doing this. Take for example a promotion called Extreme Contact Fighting (XCF). This event has no worries when it comes to mismatching pro and amateur MMA fighters together, especially Mike Kofoot. Kofoot's first MMA bout was a Pro MMA bout back on the Extreme Challenge card back on June 30th, 2006. For purposes of this story, you readers need to know that once you fight as a Professional, you can not go back and fight amateur... Unless you Kofoot or one of his promoters that is... Who apparently think this is OK... When it's not.

Fighters like Kofoot have been hurting MMA for years along with those mismatch making promoters just looking to put bodies in a ring or a cage and collect their $$ at the front door, not caring how the fighters exit the back, whether by stretcher or limo. Below you will read about Kofoot and why fighters like him are a negative story in the modern excitement of todays mainstream MMA.

While those such as the UFC, IFL and the ISCF are taking steps forward for the sport, these other "Do as they want" individuals keep taking 2 steps back. However with the strength of MMA today, it's hard to lose ground, even with the ol, "One step forward, two steps back" incidents playing out. It seems no matter what happens in the negative, MMA continues to surge forward at a rapid pace.

The ISCF attention was first brought to Kofoot when they banned him from all ISCF Sanctioned events until he learns to respect the Amateur - Pro Rule. Kofoot was allowed to fight on the ISCF sanctioned Fall Kickfest back on October 7th, 2006 in Waterloo, Iowa, USA as an amateur.

How? Although event Promoter Russ O'Connell had sent in his fighter list prior to his event, his MMA matchmaker (Travis Fulton) never submitted Kofoot's name or his bout to the ISCF before the event for the mandatory fighter background check. Unlike all ISCF Event Representatives today, back then the ISCF event representative who worked the event was not familiar with the Mandatory ISCF Amateur requirements.

On this event Kofoot fought another Pro MMA fighter Nick Baker. Baker on the other hand already had 4 Pro MMA bouts himself back in 2005 so the million dollar question is... "Why was it even billed as an Amateur bout?" This was a pro bout from start to finish but for some reason, it was announced and recorded as an amateur bout, which was mistake number 1 . Despite his layoff Baker had little problem with Kofoot who Baker took out in only 25 seconds of the first round.

However Kofoot may have seen his loss coming. Along with fighting illegally as an amateur, Kofoot isn't much of a fighter either. This event had several pro-vs amateur issues due to matchmaker and fighter Travis Fulton who is no longer allowed to matchmake ISCF Sanctioned events. Fulton was not the event promoter but our sources say he was the MMA matchmaking. However according to Fulton, he tells us "I have never been the matchmaker for Kickfest."

So, all we can say is that either Fulton or someone else matched Fulton a fight on the October Kickfest event. However, no one told the ISCF there were ANY Pro MMA bouts on the card. in fact, the ISCF found out AFTER the event by checking the fcfighter database. For those who don't know Travis Fulton has over 200 MMA fights (244 as of this writing to be exact). Fulton was matched up with a fighter named Belal Ahlmaidi who happened to be fighting in his FIRST MMA Fight. Fulton took care of business with an arm bar submission in the second round.

Kofoot continues to fight as an amateur as well as a Pro. It appears he comes in to fight as a pro to help his opponents fight record since as of today he is now 2-12 as a pro and not much better as an amateur at 6-12-1. Among those 6 wins are three straight victories over one opponent, Rodney Arp. Their first meeting was a draw at Ironman Challenge 15 which is (Ironman Challenge) by Travis Fulton. The next three times they met, Kofoot won all three on the same promotion, just different days, Ironman Challenge 18, 20 & 21.

With a record of 3-10-1 as an amateur and 0-3 as a Pro, Rodney Arp also fought Travis Fulton early this past month on one of his Ironman Challenge events. Fulton won the bout.

You see, the point here is, it's because of fighters who fight as amateurs AND Pros and matchmakers who match them up is why the ISCF was forced to require all Amateur fighters, fighting on ISCF Sanctioned events as of January 1st 2007 to be directly registered with the ISCF and not just listed in fcfighters database as were the requirements in 2006.

By the time Kofoot faced Baker he already had 7 Pro MMA fights. However in his 7 pro fights before this event he had not done so well as a fighter winning 1 while losing 7. But here's where Kofoot becomes "Special". He had also fought in 7 amateur bouts before these two met...switching back and forth from Pro fights to Amateur fights. In his first several months of fighting his record looked like a jumping bean from pro to amateur bouts and back and forth again and again.

  1. PRO: June 30th, 2006: Lost his MMA debut and also his pro debut to Caio Malta by Submission in only 44 seconds at an event called Extreme Challenge 67.
  2. PRO: July 1st, 2006: Lost to Joey Fingalson by strikes at 1:03 of round 2 on a NorthStar Fighting Association event.
  3. AMATEUR: July 8th, 2006: In his amateur debut, having already fought as a Pro MMA fighter, he lost to Jeff Bunger by Decision at an event called Biker Brawl put on by Extreme Contact Fighting (XCF).
  4. PRO: July 22nd, 2006: His first win came against Johnny George by TKO (Due to an Injury) at 2:40 of round 1 on another Extreme Contact Fighting (XCF) event.
  5. AMATEUR: August 8th, 2006: He lost to John Sankey by Strikes/Submission in round 1 at the unsanctioned Extreme Contact Fighting: Sturgis "Day 2" event.
  6. AMATEUR: August 9th, 2006: The next day he lost to Billy Walters by Submission in round one, again at the unsanctioned Extreme Contact Fighting: Sturgis "Day 3" event.
  7. AMATEUR: August 10th, 2006: Finally his first amateur win against James Boyce by Submission in round 1, the following day at the unsanctioned Extreme Contact Fighting: Sturgis "Day 4" event.
  8. AMATEUR: August 19th, 2006: Another loss to Ben Thoma by Submission at 1:26 of round 1, at yet another unsanctioned Extreme Contact Fighting III event.
  9. PRO: September 3rd, 2006: He next lost to Travis Fulton by KO at :51 seconds into round 1 at the event, Royalty Fight Night 1.
  10. AMATEUR: September 9th, 2006: Only 6 days after being KO'ed by Fulton he fought again and lost to *Josh Stamp by Submission at 1:43 of round 1 at the Iowa Challenge 30.
  11. PRO: September 14th, 2006: Not even 2 weeks ago he was KO'ed by Fulton. Now, he is matched up against Fulton again and this time loses by Submission due to a cut in round 1 at the event called Fightclub Underground.
  12. AMATEUR: September 22nd, 2006: Another loss to Johnny George (Of which will be 3) by Submission at 1:40 of round 1 at the Ironman Challenge 10: Season 2 Opener.
  13. PRO: September 23rd, 2006: A loss to Mark Racine in round 1 at the NorthStar Fighting Association: Night of the Beast. in Fargo, North Dakota, USA.
  14. PRO: September 23rd, 2006: "ANOTHER" match-up and loss to Travis Fulton by a Slam Submission in round 1 at the NorthStar Fighting Association: Night of the Beast. in Fargo, North Dakota, USA.

The above is only the fight history of Mike Kofoot up until October of last year. It continues through the present of 2007 including yet "ANOTHER" meeting with Travis Fulton on December 15th of last year where yet again...Travis won.

As many MMA people know, Iowa is a "HotBed" for MMA action. Those who know MMA know that some of the greatest MMA fighters came from Iowa such as Pat Militech and many others. This was one of the many reasons the ISCF choose the U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids Iowa for the First Annual 2007- ISCF MMA WORLD CLASSIC Amateur MMA Tournament. However despite the fact that Iowa is loaded with tons of exciting MMA events with lots of great fighters, the question of safety and fairness have come up time and time again. As the philosophy of "Yin & Yang" goes, along with the Good comes the Bad.

Iowa is also loaded with tons of unsanctioned amateur events and amateur mismatches. Unlike many states, Iowa not only does not oversee Amateur MMA but there are no State regulations for Amateur MMA sanctioning either. In many of the states where the State Boxing or Athletic Commission do not oversee MMA, their laws say that their events must be regulated by a "Nationally Recognized Sanctioning Body". However, no such law exists in Iowa for Amateur MMa so it's truly "No Holds Barred" there as far as Amateur MMA is concerned.

Keep in mind, an event does not need to be sanctioned to be a good event.

This will be said for several reasons. First, this article is not an ad for the ISCF. in fact, the person writing this is not even an official or promoter with the ISCF, just a fight fan. Second, because there are very few good sanctioning bodies out there for MMA. Unlike the stern and often bothersome requirements for safety, fairness and general event regulations of the ISCF, many like ISKA and KICK are hardly good "Kickboxing" sanctioning bodies let alone knowledgable MMA Sanctioning Bodies. At best these orgs are simply "Rubber Stamp" orgs that sell their letters for $$ just to help promoters who do not want to be regulated please the State Commission requirements. I will note that the ISCF is the only MMA Sanctioning body that does amateur fighter ring experience background checks and has both pro and amateur Rankings. Some of the other kickboxing orgs. that have added MMA Sanctioning under their wing such as USKBA and WKA have event listings and news both Pre and post.

Again, there are both good events and questionable events. There are both good and bad promoters and it's the bad ones that give MMA a bad name to others watching. There are still some good shows so don't let this article offend you if you are associated with one. Just keep in mind that in most cases, unsanctioned fight events often have no fighter medical insurance, questionable ringside officials, questionable medical staff and not to mention, the many occurrences of pros fighting amateurs. Don't let this article sell you on this. Check out the past results of these Pro Vs Amateur mismatches on the fcfighter database for yourself on some of these promotions that are associated with some of the bouts above.

ADDED to the Above on 2-5-07 at 8:10 PM

The above article was mainly about AMATEUR Regulations and there may have been some confusion about State Regulations in the State of Iowa for MMA. According to MMA Promoter Chad Bergmeier "The Iowa State Athletic Commission is fully in charge of sanctioning Pro MMA events and has been for at least 12 years now. To be a Pro MMA Promoter in Iowa there are several things a promoter must have:

  1. A $5,000 surety bond to have a license.
  2. All contracts and list of officials and HEP B & C are all due 7 days before the show.
  3. State Fees:

According to the IKF web page (CLICK HERE) that has posted information about what States allow or don't allow Kickboxing and or MMA, and any details about regulations, the State of Iowa's notice that was sent to the IKF on 5-31-06 reads as follows:

MMA is legal in Iowa, amateur requires no state involvement, and there are no rules, professional is overseen by the boxing commissioner, requires a license and a $5000.00 performance bond for the sales tax and athletic tax, of 5%. Each, contract must be signed between the contestants and the promoter and delivered to the boxing commissioner 7 days before an event. The commissioner must have a 30 day notice before the event that an event is going to be held in pro. All rules must be adhered to similar to boxing.
Submitted by: Dave Neil, Interim Director, Iowa Workforce Development


In regards to Amateur MMA, the State of Iowa submitted on 3-18-85:
Amateur MMA: The Iowa Athletic Commission has no jurisdiction over amateur events. Must have a nationally recognized sanctioning body sanctioning the event not owned or operated by the promoter.
Submitted by: Byron Orton, State of Iowa.


However, this may be the law, but this amateur law is certainly not followed by all amateur promoters.

Amateurs MMA is not sanctioned but the state of Iowa and like in other states, the State is trying to ban AMATEUR MMA shows. This surprises no one here. Some of you may remember the article awhile back on here about UFC's President Dana White discussion to the ABC (Association of Boxing Commissions) about amateur MMA. The ABC had their annual convention in Las Vegas a couple of years back and while they were all in Vegas, White invited them all to the UFC Training Center for an introduction meeting about MMA. It's no secret that White has been talking with nearly every state in the country telling them they need to BAN Amateur MMA. It's also no secret now that he has told all these states that "They - The UFC" should be the ONLY organization allowed to regulate MMA. At that Vegas meeting, White was asked what he thought about Amateur MMA, in which he replied, quote - unquote, "There is no such thing as Amateur MMA."

Bergmeier went on to tell us that "PRO MMA is not allowed in a boxing ring." This may be true to the rules, but certainly not true on all the Pro shows in Iowa. Remember, for every good promoter, there are others doing bad things, such as matching up amateurs and pros to fight each other. In addition, several sources have informed us here at the ISCF that although PRO MMA is not allowed in a boxing ring according to Iowa Rules, we also know that "PRO" fights "HAVE" and "STILL ARE" happening in boxing rings. If the law to ban Amateur MMA in Iowa is passed, then the sanctioning will only be done by the state for PRO MMA events which means that promoters would work directly with the State Commission. As in other states where the commission oversees MMA, the promoters would have a choice whether or not to sanction with the ISCF, just like a Pro Boxing Promoter can choose in Professional Boxing. They would not have to, but they could if they wanted to.

Will ISCF Retire
Din Thomas' World Title?

Over 6 years ago, Din Thomas of Orlando, Florida, USA (20-6, 5'10", 155) won the very first ISCF world title. Thomas won the ISCF Lightweight World title on August 25th, 2000 in Augusta, Georgia, USA. He defeated Jens "The Pulverizer" Pulver (Team Extreme) by heel hook at :35 seconds of round 2.

When Thomas won the title the weightclass was the ISCF Welterweight division under the original ISCF Weightclasses.

Thomas has never defended the title nor has he shown any interest to. The other issue is even if he was available to, what would he charge? And finally, Thomas may not even recognize the title now since it was so long ago. Since winning his ISCF World Title in 2000, he went on to fight in the UFC attaining a record of 4-2.

Having never fought as an amateur Thomas was 10-1 the day he fought for the ISCF title and today his record stands at 22-6.

What do you think? Should the ISCF Retire his title and make it available for another fighter? The question is linked to other possibilities of WHO should be allowed to fight for an ISCF World title. Many top ranked Pro MMA fighters ranked in the ISCF are signed with promotional companies such as UFC, Pride or other smaller promotional companies like King of the Cage who won't allow them to fight for another Promoter, yet the title they win is "Their" title and not a ranked title such as the ISCF. However, who cares right? The MONEY does more talking here than any letters of a sanctioning body right? At least that is the general consensus....

What does Thomas think? The ISCF has never been able to get ahold of him and ask him directly what he thinks, or even if he cares... With all this being said, don't be surprised if you start seeing lower ranked fighters fighting for Pro ISCF World Titles in the VERY near future. After all, "Someone" should be "ISCF World Champion" and maybe that someone is You!
