Finney's Show Offers Variety!
Is MMA a bigger hit than Kickboxing?

St. Louis, Missouri, USA
Over the last couple of years St.. Louis has been a big Kickboxing city, this is starting to change. Last year Jesse Finney and the ISCF worked with the Missouri Athletic Commission to legalize Amateur Mixed Martial Arts events in Missouri. This new law has help Shamrock Promotions LLC. (Finney's Promotional Company) In the past the St. Louis events had great Full-contact fights, normally anywhere from 8-11 bouts. Now that MMA is legal, more and more fighters are coming to Promoter Jesse Finney wanting to get in the ring and fight.

The main event is more than two men fighting it out for the crowd. "Mean" Mike Green will be up against John Long, in a NHB fight. Long has been a boxer for several years and Green has been kickboxing and completing in MMA for a couple years. This feud started just as most fights outside the ring start... over a women. Long has disrespected Green's girlfriend and Green on numerous occasions, and now they have agreed to settle the differences in the ring. The rest of the card is as follows:

    Josh Fischer,
    St. Louis, MO -vs- Jason Wolf, Columbia, MO

    Dustin Severs,
    St. Louis, MO -vs- Joe Mabin, Kansas City, MO

    John Felts,

Did Tim Sylvia
Really Test Positive for Steroids?

Not According To The Facts...
Special To The ISCF

Monte Cox released the following statement regarding the Tim Sylvia steroid situation. The results of Sylvia's recent steroid test have come back negative, contrary to what the UFC announced in their press release last Friday:

"Here is what happened in the Tim Sylvia test situation... pretty much, Josh Gross has it nailed in his story on Maxfighting...

Tim was required by the NSAC to produce a negative test before getting his license to compete in UFC 47... we knew this was going to take work because our doctor said once the stuff gets into your fat cells it can crystallize and stay there for more than a year. (don't start arguing roid issues, please. I know nothing about it, and am only stating what the doctor told us).

A test was taken many weeks prior to the UFC to see what the levels were... it was like .00000000064, which is very little. Tim flew to Vegas to give the results to Zuffa and the NSAC and he offered to take a lie detector test to prove he had not used since the time he admitted to when he was suspended. NSAC officials said they believed him, and that the low amount was not consistent with somebody who had been using recently. However, Tim still needed to work to get the remaining trace out of his body... and he used a herbal cleansing thing-a-ma-jig... something that is completely OK to do.

Here's where it gets tricky... Wanting to give the herbs the most chance to work, he waited until he got to Vegas to take the test for the NSAC... he tried to do it Monday, but there was a problem (not sure what) and he was told to come back Tuesday. He took the test on Tuesday... and they hoped to get it back by Thursday afternoon... before the licensing and weigh-in. As you know... the test results were not back until Friday. Zuffa had to make the changes in the lineup on Thursday and Tim was out.

We didn't learn that the test came back NEGATIVE until Tim was told by Dana White at the event. As far as the release Zuffa put out saying Tim failed a test on Thursday... that's wrong and didn't happen. Not sure how that happened... probably in the rush to get something out quickly. That's how this all came down... Zuffa and the NSAC will and has confirmed all of this in Gross' report." -Monte Cox

Wins in UFC Debut

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, UFC 47: It's On, April 2nd, 2004
Photos Courtesy Of Jeff Sherwood of

Jonathan "Lock N' Load" Wiezorek won his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) debut match against Wade "Nightmare" Shipp. Wiezorek took care of business early enough to watch the highly anticipated bout between Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell that was two years in the making. Liddell defeated Ortiz by KO when he unleashed a devastating right/left/right that sent Ortiz to the canvas. Referee McCarthy quickly pulled Liddell off, stopping the bout at :38 seconds of round two.

defeated Shipp at 4:39 of first round by TKO. Early on in the match Shipp, who had been training with some K-1 kickboxers, used his knees and boxing skills against Wiezorek. In his characteristic aggressive charges, Wiezorek took several knees to the face. Shipp delivered knees to Lock N' Load's sternum and stomach area, as well as punches to his face.

Despite Shipp's attempts to knock Wiezorek out, Wiezorek kept pushing the pace of the entire match. Wiezorek felt Shipp gassing out from his attacks so the 6'2", 257 pound Wiezorek kept pressing his clinching game and attempting upper body takedowns on Shipp.

It was obvious that Shipp's camp did not want him to grapple with Wiezorek. Shipp's trainer, former King of the Cage Middleweight Champion Charlie Kohler, kept advising Shipp to "disengage" from Wiezorek's clinch game. This was evident when Wiezorek attempted and missed a lateral drop takedown, pulling Shipp down on top of himself, from which Wiezorek quickly escaped.

At about 4:00 of Round 1, Wiezorek secured a front headlock/guillotine hold on Shipp (6'4", 232 lbs.). Using a left-leg heel trip against Shipp, Wiezorek took him down. Shipp attempted to stand back up and Wiezorek established a rear mount position and pressed Shipp's torso to the canvas of the octagon while maintaining the rear hooks-in position. Wiezorek then began delivering left and right hook punches to Shipp's head and the referee stopped the contest at 4:39 as Shipp was unable to defend himself.

UFC Commentator (and host of NBC's "Fear Factor" show), Joe Rogan, complemented Wiezorek on being able to take the punishment that Shipp delivered.

"Pain is temporary, pride is forever,"
Wiezorek answered Rogan as he interviewed him for the +11,400 spectators present.

At the press conference later, Wiezorek joked to the audience that he wanted "to prove he did not have a glass chin."

Having accomplished this milestone, Wiezorek looks forward to a little time off before resuming training. He is currently wrapping up his Spring Semester at college and hopes to maintain his 4.0 GPA in the Graduate Sports Medicine program at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga. He will work as an intern athletic trainer for the Atlanta Falcons in late summer.

Denver, Colorado, USA: According to those in attendance this event was a complete sell-out with standing room only. The nights Main was sure to be a war for the vacant IKF Woman's Amateur IR U.S Featherweight Title. In one corner stood 3 time IKF National Champion Katie Meehan of Colorado, USA (9-3-1/1, 121, 5'5") while in the other corner stood the IKF number 1 Ranked Amateur San Shou Featherweight fighter, Sarah Ponce of Texas, USA (9-1/0, 126, 5'7").

From the other side of the ring, Meehan fought a very good fight and was always in Ponce's face using really good boxing and low kicks. After a 5 round toe to toe war, in the end the judges gave it to Sarah Ponce of Texas by decision making her the NEW IKF Woman's Amateur IR U.S Featherweight Champion!

As if the ladies Main Event wasn't enough, before them was the fight for the vacant IKF Amateur MTR Vacant U.S Welterweight Title between Mike Baldwin (5-0) of Colorado, USA and Ryan Farthingham (4-1) of Wyoming, USA. What was thought to be a 5 round war ended quickly at :53 seconds into round 1 when Baldwin landed a high head kick on Farthingham's for a first round KO win making him the new IKF Amateur MTR Vacant U.S Welterweight Champion!

Texas MMA Promoter Arrested!
Special Press Sent to ISCF By ISCF Fighter and His Trainer

Back on February 17, 2004, an MMA/NHB promoter by the name of Richard Salazar of Garrett Promotions was arrested and booked into the Hidalgo County Jail in Hidalgo, Texas. The hindsight question here is, "If he had sanctioned his event with the ISCF could this action have been avoided?" ABSOLUTELY!

Salazar promoted an event that was overseen by the IFC (A promotional company) in McAllen, Texas on December 6, 2004 at the Dodge Arena called RUMBLE ON THE RIO. Salazar paid the fighters in "Checks" and the checks failed to clear. Other charges are being considered for him failing to follow the Texas Combative Sports Division (The Texas Commission for MMA) rules and regulations in regards to combative sports events. The real question here is "Why were the fighters paid in 'Checks' and not cash?"

Sources have said that the bonding company, CNA Surety of Chicago, has been requested by the Texas Commission to release funds for the fighters. The IFC was also the umbrella organization that was associated with an event called THE BATTLEGROUND in Chicago where promoter Edward Kim failed to pay the fighters. Kim has since filed for bankruptcy protection.

This is why fighters should feel secure when a "LEGITIMATE" Sanctioning body requires ALL Pro fighters be paid IN CASH or Cashiers Checks by the event promoter. Remember, A "REAL" Sanctioning Body is one that DOES NOT Promote their own events. If they did, it means they police themselves and do as they wish with their own rules and regulations. There are MANY good and trustworthy MMA/NHB Promoters out there that do indeed police themselves with their own rules, regulations and guidelines. However, there still many who are not good for the sport! This is why the ISCF was created. The "ONLY REAL" Sanctioning body for Mixed Martial Arts!

ISCF Super Heavy Champ
Makes UFC Debut Friday

Jonathan "Lock N' Load" Wiezorek, the International Sport Combat Federation (ISCF) Pro U.S. Super Heavyweight Champion, is ready to make his debut in the UFC, Ultimate Fighting Championship this Friday, April 2nd. He will face UFC newcomer Wade "The Nightmare" Shipp of San Diego, California, in a preliminary match to the main fight card.

Joe Silva, UFC matchmaker, said that this is a rare opportunity for two newcomers to face each other for a chance to perform with the flagship promotion of American mixed martial arts (MMA). The winner of the debut match will then have a chance to remain among the best of the world's heavyweight MMA fighters. The event will be UFC 47: "It's On" held at Manadalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be available via Pay-Per-View over DirecTV, DISH, and cable. Airtime is 9 PM EST.

Wiezorek expects Shipp to be his most well-rounded opponent yet. Shipp has said that he is training with K-1 kickboxers, Olympic-level wrestlers and judo players. As well, Shipp trains at San Diego Fight Club with former Abu Dhabi BJJ instructor, Charlie Kohler.

Wiezorek's manager, James Corbett of Valdosta Martial Arts Center, Valdosta, Georgia, says Wiezorek has trained a great deal for the match. "Jonathan has trained as much as many fulltime professional fighters, yet maintaining his graduate fellowship." Wiezorek is in the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's rigorous Sport Medicine program which has him working fulltime as a athletic trainer and attending classes as well. ISCF fighter Andy Foster of Dalton, Georgia, has worked extensively with Wiezorek at United Karate Studios (UKS) in preparation for this match. Foster has added to Wiezorek repertoire of skills and is confident of his new training partner's forthcoming success. Foster says that his own kickboxing trainer and owner of UKS, Ben Kiker, stunned everyone in the facility by praising Wiezorek with, "He is in shape."

Wiezorek possesses a 5-0 professional MMA record. He has defeated such notables as Dan "The Beast" Severn, John Dixson, and Jonathan Ivey. His defeat of Dixson garnered the ISCF title in April of 2002 Wiezorek's last two matches have totaled about a minute in fight time and both ended by choke submission. Wiezorek is sponsored by Casca Grossa, ACH Mortgage, Vulcan Steel, The Langdale Company, Dr. Mike Millner, Dr. Jason Cox, Open MRI of Valdosta, and Harmon's Awards.

Shipp has predicted that he will knockout or submit the ISCF Champion early into the match. "It won't go the distance," he has been quoted. Wiezorek, the quiet champion, having noted Shipp's prognostication prefers to do his talking in the octagon.

It is the "EVENT PROMOTER'S" Responsibility to assure that ALL Event Results are sent in to the ISCF Headquarters within 48 hours of the event "BY E-MAIL". ALL Event Paperwork shall follow and be received by the ISCF within 7 days following the event. ALL results must be FULL and COMPLETE which must including full fighter stats, times of stops, etc. Failure of EITHER of these requirements will result in a $500.00 fine for EACH infraction to the promoter and a suspension from sanctioning with the ISCF for a minimum of 6 months!

ALL Kickboxing/MuayThai bouts done on an ISCF Sanctioned event MUST be Sanctioned by the IKF!

We have had too many people contact the IKF Headquarters and ask why promoters were not following IKF rules and regulations. These people were upset at us, and we had nothing to do with it. They had either been told or were assuming or thinking the kickboxing - muay Thai bouts were IKF sanctioned since the MMA/NHB portion was sanctioned by the ISCF, a sister organization for MMA/NHB to the IKF. To avoid this from here forward, and the problems with rules, regulations etc. "ALL" Kickboxing - MuayThai bouts done on an ISCF Sanctioned event "MUST" also be sanctioned by the IKF, International Kickboxing Federation.

ISCF Still Awaiting Missouri Results!

The results shown below are from events where the Promoter or Representative has NEVER sent in the event results to the ISCF and the ISCF has attained the results listed by an outside source. However, as you will see, these are FAR from complete. These do not include full fighter stats, exact bout stop times, decision scores etc.. This explains why many ISCF Fighters are not in the Official ISCF Rankings.

From Ray Thompson
Dear Fellow Martial Artists,

As a lifelong martial artist who believes in teamwork, I am calling upon all members of the martial arts community to contact the Senators and Representatives on the Georgia General Assembly and ask that they oppose (House Bill) HB 558. What we all want is the positive growth of the martial sports nationwide. That being the case, what happens in Georgia is important to all of us, no matter where we live. We here in South Carolina as well as people around the country have benefited from all of the great events and developments that have happened in Georgia in recent years. No one who cares about the future of the martial arts should let them slip away without making their voices heard. So please join me and tell the elected officials in Georgia that HB 558 should be stopped dead in its tracks. Please call, e-mail and write to them and let them know how we feel.
In the Arts.
Ray Thompson,
President Upstate Karate, Inc.

As a young man, Ivan escaped to Canada with his parents, and immediately took to the Canadian way of life, excelling in football, soccer, judo and weightlifting. While he adapted to many of our customs, he maintained the hard as steel edge and work ethic he had grown up with in Eastern Europe as a young man. It is this work ethic and cold determination that has led him to elevate quickly from the NHB training center to the most feared man in No Holds Barred wrestling. Certainly his size is impressive.

Friends, Romans, Countrymen
Lend Me Your Ears…
Brett Moses (R) - ISCF - IKF Representative


The "Evil Empire," the GA Boxing Commission, has decided that the ruin of boxing is simply not enough. They have now set their sights on Martial Arts. With pure boxing events sharply declining, in GA, and Martial Arts, specifically Mixed Martial Arts, steadily rising, they are attempting to seize control in the legislature. Revenues are down and, in order to justify their existence during a budgetary crisis, they have decided to set their greedy eyes upon us. They slid their bill in near the end of session and were able to push it through the state House Of Representatives last week. The Bill is to be voted upon in the State Senate this week. The Commission has been lobbying the senators and representatives using a medley of outright lies and deliberate misrepresentations. The lobbying effort is headed by Lobbyist Les Snyder Les Scheinder Info - Click Here who just happens to hold a seat on the Boxing Commission (holy conflict of interest, Batman).

Please access the website, find out who your STATE SENATOR is and use the convenient link to let him (or her) know that we do not wish for unknowledgeable people to seize control of the Martial Arts. Various polls have shown that the public perception of boxing is NOT favorable (and rightfully so). Let them know that you do not want the Martial Arts to be cast under a similar shadow. The commission claims that MMA in GA is a monopoly; however, the "real" monopoly will occur when the commission is in control of something they know next to nothing about, without checks or balances. Bottom line: it's all about the "Benjamins" (hundred dollar bills).
Anyone who knows me knows that I would not misrepresent the situation. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Augusta's Ultimate Fighting Championship on, for now

A History of them trying to Take Over MMA Starting With The UFC!

May 30, 1997: By Bill Syken, Augusta Chronicle Editorial Staff

The almost-anything-goes Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has escaped the rule of the Georgia State Boxing Commission, at least for now. Tonight's Ultimate Fighting event will go on at the Augusta Richmond County Civic Center as scheduled because Richmond County Superior Court Judge Bernard Mulherin on Thursday shot down the boxing commission's last-minute attempt to get a temporary restraining order. The request for the order was made too late, he said.

A lawyer from the state attorney general's office argued that permitting the fight would damage the state of Georgia by allowing a promoter to sidestep boxing commission rules. But Judge Mulherin said he would do far greater damage to promoters and the Civic Center by stopping the event a day before it was set to take place. ``As far as that's concerned, this is an easy call,'' Judge Mulherin said. The Civic Center made $27,000 on an Ultimate Fighting Championship event this fall attended by more than 3,000 people. Tonight's event had already sold 1,800 tickets, and this event typically draws a big walk-up crowd, said Patrick Cumiskey, Civic Center general manager.

Semaphore Entertainment Group, a New York-based company, expects 150,000 orders for the event on pay-per-view television at $21.95 a pop, lawyers said. A cancellation would cost the company millions, they said. The question of whether Ultimate Fighting should be governed by the state boxing commission to be answered another day, when it can be more fully researched. In Ultimate Fighting, men from karate, wrestling other aggressive sports fight in an octagon-shaped ring where few rules apply. Some states have banned Ultimate Fighting because of its brutality. The state's lawyer argued that because Ultimate Fighting combatants include kick-boxers and karate experts, the event falls under the commission's jurisdiction. The commission sanctions karate and kick-boxing competitions. Ultimate Fighting never applied for a license to put on its event. "If this even goes on unsanctioned, it will encourage other promoters to avoid applying for a state license", said Denise PackWhiting, a lawyer with the Georgia Attorney General's office. The state boxing commission requires safety standards for events it licenses. Georgia Attorney General Mike Bowers wrote an opinion in November that Ultimate Fighting should be governed by the state boxing commission. Judge Mulherin noted Mr. Bowers' opinion, but said it is not binding. Ultimate Fighting's lawyers argued their sport is distinct, even though it draws fighters from the kick-boxing and karate. ``You can't expect the court to be able to determine that fact at a short hearing of this nature,'' Judge Mulherin said.


The Ultimate Ruling
June 3, 1997: Augusta Chronicle Editorial Staff
Imagine if you poured your money, time and effort into sponsoring a large entertainment event. Then, at the last minute, outside forces suddenly step in to cancel it. All that work and investment goes down the drain. That almost happened to the promoters of last Friday night's Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) at the Augusta-Richmond County Civic Center when the Georgia Boxing Commission unexpectedly intervened Thursday. The panel sought a restraining order on grounds that New York-based Semaphore Entertainment Group was trying to sidestep Georgia's rules on boxing, kick-boxing and karate competitions.

Though Ultimate Fighting combines aspects of all those disciplines and some others as well, it is not clear that such events even come under the Commission's supervision. But the real outrage is that the panel could have moved to resolve this and other issues long before it did. The fact that it waited until the eve of the fights suggests commissioners were more interested in inflicting financial damage on the promoters and the Civic Center and, perhaps, in casting themselves in a favorable public relations light.

Ultimate Fighting is a niche sport, much loved by its avid fans, many of whom travel across the country to see the mayhem. But is deplored by many others who find some of these matches barbaric. Several states have even banned Ultimate Fighting. If Georgia wants to impose a ban, fine. But it should be done by a majority of the General Assembly, not an unelected Boxing Commission. In the meantime, Richmond County Superior Court Judge Bernard Mulherin did what he had to do, ruling it would be unfair to promoters and the Civic Center to ban the event at the last minute. As for whether the Commission has regulatory authority over Ultimate Fighting, Mulherin was again right on target, pointing out that's a matter to be thrashed out on another day when the court has more time to consider it.

1998: In 1998, Georgia law was changed to specifically remove "ultimate fighting" from the boxing commission's authority. This accomplishment was, in no small part, due to the efforts of current Assistant District Attorney Michael Carlson (Right) and former state Representative Robin Williams. It was a positive action for the sport at that time, but it left MMA officially unregulated. Ultimately, this would prove to have negative effects as well. Legitimate and unscrupulous promoters alike could now use Georgia as a venue. Eventually, certain promoters would incur the wrath of MMA supporters and state officials combined by blatantly ignoring obvious safety concerns and thumbing their noses at legitimate sanctioning bodies, such as the ISCF. True mixed martial arts fans worst fears were realized when these actions lead to the first version of HB 538 being proposed. That version clearly would have made participating in MMA in Georgia a criminal offense!

1998 - 2001: The beginning stages of HB 538: The new bill, while making specific exemptions for sports like amateur boxing, made "unarmed combat" unlawful. The bill also included criminal sanctions for participating in "unarmed combat." Even after all of the years of struggle MMA has gone through to gain credibility, and after the tremendous positive support the sport has enjoyed in Georgia, "ultimate fighting" was specifically included as to what would constitute "unarmed combat". MMA was very close to being explicitly illegal in Georgia.
Fortunately for MMA fans, Georgia has an extensive network of MMA supporters. One of them who has been a major part in keeping MMA legal in Georgia has been Augusta Georgia Assistant District Attorney Michael Carlson. Carlson is the same man who was present and ready to testify in support of SEG (UFC's Event) at the 1997 Augusta hearing, and who also participated in the effort to take MMA away from the Boxing Commission in 1998. He was warned by several sources in the Georgia State Government that a bill was being introduced which could be trouble for legitimate promoters of MMA.
Carlson and several others gathered information supporting the safety record of MMA versus that of other sports prepared for a major offensive on behalf of the sport. Coordinating with Georgia MMA's old ally Robin Williams, Carlson began mounting an "all out offensive" in the State assembly to keep MMA legal in his home state. Carlson working with open-minded representatives of both parties in the Georgia House and Senate to champion the cause of MMA. He took the position that although certain irresponsible promoters had no place in Georgia, there were legitimate promoters, fans and athletes, who did participate in MMA responsibly who would be hurt by the proposed law. Carlson sought a provision to protect them. After weighing several options, an amendment was made which provided that MMA competition, if in any way waged for profit, will be legal in Georgia, if and only if the competition is "approved, sanctioned, and/or endorsed" by the ISCF. This language was included in the final version of the bill, which was signed into law by Governor Barnes, and it opened the door to the progressive growth of MMA in Georgia.

Michael Carlson

April 26th, 2001: Georgia Governor Roy Barnes signed into law a bill (HB 538) which, in part, makes provisions for legitimate, legally operated MMA events. Georgia has previously been a back-and-forth battleground state for the acceptance of the misunderstood sport, and in fact this bill as it was originally introduced would have banned MMA altogether. to Read full story, CLICK HERE.

June, 2003: History of HB 194: The House (Democrat controlled) proposed a bill that would add ISKA and WKA as MMA sanctioning bodies. It was passed and went to the Republican controlled Senate.
Due to its employ of a felon, ISKA was stricken as an additional sanctioning body for MMA. WKA was left in
At the time ISKA was removed, another amendment to the bill was added. That was to ban felons from promoting and prevent sanctioning bodies from using felons as promoters. This would have applied to MMA and Kickboxing. There was a criminal penalty involved.
Senators Cheeks, Hall and Brush introduced these amendments. They were passed unanimously by the Senate. Then, the bill went back to the House. The choice was clear to all, Leave WKA in and keep felons out of MMA and KB or Keep the law the way it was (ISCF exclusive). With these choices in mind, it was the people who originally sponsored HB 194 in the house who decided that they would rather drop WKA than keep felons out of positions of trust and responsibility. WKA in and felons out would have been fine with the Senate. They sent it over to the House that way after all. When faced with no felons in the promoting business, the original sponsors of the bill apparently decided they liked the law as it was. The Senate was willing to accept this. The law was passed with ISCF remaining the exclusive MMA sanctioning body (in lieu of the "felon ban") and WKA allowed to sanction Shidokan. In pertinent part, it is codified at O.C.G.A. § 43-4B-1.
So, the message was clear. The Georgia Senate unanimously decided that:
1: It does not want sanctioning bodies that works with felons to promote in Georgia; and
2: It does not want felons promoting the martial sports in Georgia.

This is no matter of speculation. It is all a public record, as set forth above.
For whatever reasons, there seems to be a small group of individuals that do not like the fact that the ISCF is the only allowed MMA Sanctioning body in the state of Georgia. however, the problem is not here with the ISCF. The problem needs to be directed to the people who inserted WKA and ISKA in the first place and NOT IKF/ISCF or ANYBODY in the Senate. If they would have "JUST SAID NO" to felons, WKA would be legally authorized to sanction MMA in Georgia today. If ISKA would not have accepted a convicted felon as a promoter, they too would probably be legally authorized to sanction MMA in Georgia today.

The facts about the Georgia MMA issues are very clear and all of this information is the record of the Georgia General Assembly. The ISCF has the duty and responsibility to follow the wishes of the legislature. If ISCF were to circumvent the wishes of said legislature, then we would be placing our own existence in Georgia in jeopardy. The situation in Georgia is in no way, shape or form about perpetuating a "monopoly" as several have been claiming it to be. All WKA, or any other sanctioning body has to do is satisfy the wishes of the Georgia Legislature and they have the ability to sanction MMA in Georgia. However, we ask, "What makes a sanctioning body?" To date, NO ONE has seen any MMA rules from ISKA's so called MMA division nor has anyone seen any rules from WKA's so called MMA division. No rules, no regulations, no safety standards, requirements, rankings, NOTHING! Just some letters slapped together. So do their letters alone make them a "Sanctioning Body?" Absolutely not!

Les Scheinder (Les Scheinder Info - Click Here) is an attorney lobbyist pushing HB 558. Interestingly, his firm profile notes that he is on the State Boxing Commission. It is sort of funny no one is calling this a "conflict of interest."


"The reason this is happening is because MMA IS MORE POPULAR THAN BOXING in Georgia.
We attract crowds of 2000+ now.
Tom Mishou and the boxing commission want to cash in because they regulated Boxing to death.
Good job Tom!

HB 558

If you are reading this and plan on fighting in the State of Georgia and thinking this bill does not effect you, you need to read closer. This bill directly attacks EVERYONE in sport Martial Arts from "Karate Point Fighting" to Full contact Kickboxing & MMA!
Keep in mind that this covers pro-wrestling too which would fuel the fire of suspicions that this is designed to clear out all of the competition for boxing and that small promoters will be crushed.
Sanctioning bodies (all of them) will also (foreseeable) take a hit.

This section maps out the various definitions that apply throughout the rest of the bill. They are important to recognize as those definitions dictate how the terms of the bill would apply if it were enacted as law. The broad definition of "martial art" is particularly instructive:
(10.1) 'Martial art' means any form of unarmed combative sport or unarmed combative entertainment that allows contact striking, except boxing or wrestling.

This section sets forth the organizations that are exempt from the act. In essence, amateur boxing and amateur wrestling will not fall under the authority of the boxing commission. A list of these excluded organizations is listed in the statute. Not one martial arts organization, from ISCF to NASKA is included on the list. Amateur kickboxing, mixed martial arts, point karate and tae kwon do all allow "contact striking." As such, they would all fall under the definition of "Martial arts" in section 10.1 (see above). This being the case, even at the amateur level, they would be subject to the control of the Georgia State Boxing Commission and the requirements of HB 558.

This section provides that the appointment to the state boxing commission is political, and indicates that "hold over" appointments are allowed. No other criteria are indicated.

Reports from boxing promoters to the commission as to ticket sales are set forth here.

This section criminalizes the promotion of "unarmed combat." Under the definitions set forth in Section 43-4B-1 this would apply to any martial arts (as defined above) competition not controlled and approved of by the state boxing commission.

This section to ticket brokers and fees that they can charge. Generally speaking, ticket brokers are those who sell tickets for events that are not the venue holder or sponsor.

This section provides for a total takeover of the martial sporting business at all levels by the State Government. The plain and unambiguous language calls for the following.
*The state boxing commission to have authority over all organizations that authorize martial arts and wrestling matches.
*The state boxing commission would dictate the rules for all martial arts competitions.
*The state boxing commission would determine the standards to determine who will participate in all martial arts competitions.
*The state boxing commission would be able to charge an annual licensure fee for sanctioning bodies (labeled as "licensed organizations").
*The state boxing commission would be able to charge annual licensure fee for promoters (labeled as "holders of match permits").
*The state boxing commission could (at its own discretion) charge sanctioning bodies for its providing (at the its own discretion) of "oversight services," at any and all martial arts matches.
If HB 558 is passed its language would require a total and complete appropriation of all martial sports competitors from the smallest point tournament to the largest pay-per-view mixed martial arts event. There is no limit on the authority of the state boxing commission and no requirement that these political appointees have any knowledge or interest in the positive development of the martial sports. There is also no check on what the boxing commission can charge promoters for licensure fees or for "oversight services." In other words, under HB 558, there is no limit to what can be demanded here.

Here, the annual fee for a sanctioning body is set at $1,000.00 per year. A "permit fee" of up to $250.00 for "each match, contest, or exhibition," held in Georgia is also provided for in this section. Both are to be paid to the state boxing commission. The clear and unambiguous language of this stature would allow for promoters to be charged by the state for "each match" on a given card. A ten bout card, then, if that language were enforced as written, would cost the promoter $2,500.00, payable to the state. Significantly, where this section sets limits on the annual charges for sanctioning bodies and for "permit fees," there is no limit to what could be levied against promoters for annual fees and for the "oversight fees" set forth in 43-4B-50.

Martial arts sanctioning bodies would be required to report all matches to the state boxing commission, as well as an evaluation on the fitness of the athletes 7 days before any bout. The section also requires reporting ticket sales, revenues and sales tax as well as "any other information the [boxing] commission shall require" within 72 hours after an event.

Here, no one who has ever been "convicted of a crime of moral turpitude," can serve in a representative capacity for a sanctioning body. It also makes it a crime for anyone who has any association with a sanctioning body to receive any compensation in connection with a bout. Several matters jump out here. First, no job carries more responsibility with it than that of the promoter. This bill does not preclude those who have plead guilty to felonies from promoting. Also, there is no penalty listed in this section for sanctioning bodies that violate the provision against felons. At the same time, if a member of a sanctioning body board of advisors came to judge a point karate tournament or referee a kickboxing match, he or she could not be paid anything for it. Not gas money, not hotel room, not a meal voucher. Nothing at all of value could be legally accepted that could ever be deemed "compensation" by anyone who could ever be deemed a "member" of a sanctioning body. Clearly, this would annihilate the kind of grass roots support and extended family atmosphere that the martial arts foster, thrive with and depend upon for continued growth and development. By operation, it will also preclude anyone who the boxing commission does not select from being an official at an event. In that way, it will render sanctioning bodies obsolete and/or too costly and administratively difficult to employ.
The net effect of moving sanctioning bodies out will cripple the development of the martial sports. Titles and ranking will have far less meaning and, thus, fighter will have less to shoot for as goals. And with the added expense of promotion due to this bill, the pay will be far less for them, too. That, of course, would funnel more athletes into boxing as their other options were narrowed.

This section gives the state boxing commission the power to suspend, fine or revoke permits to any entity that violates its rules and agenda. This is down to the last match. No limit is put on the state boxing commission's power here. It can fine as much as it wants and it can suspend whoever it wants for whatever reason it wants. There is no right or ability to appeal. In fact there is no body to which an appeal can be made. This represents a format of no checks and balances at all. With this sort of format in place, abuses of power and corruption are encouraged.

The state boxing commission would be authorized to exempt organizations from any and all of these requirements. There is no check or appellate right on its ability to do so one way or the other. There are guidelines for the state boxing commission to consider here, but the decision, either way, can still be arbitrary. Interestingly, keeping the activity safe from the criminal element is not a listed criterion. This is another example of the kind of unbridled power that this bill would give the state boxing commission. It is difficult to see how the martial arts and martial sports could survive, much less grow, if it is passed.

    1. This bill allows the commission to charge the promoter up to $3.00 per ticket sold.
    2. It shall be a misdemeanor for an officer, principal, manager, partner, owner, member, shareholder, trustee, or director of a licensed organization to receive compensation for services relating to a match, contest, or exhibition authorized or governed by the licensed organization. In the bills "WILD" and "Non binding" and "No limit" regulations, would this include any sanctioning fee payments too?
    3. how does the commission define a "Professional"? An individual that...
      • A fighter being given a cash as a salary, purse, or prize for such participation.
      • The event the fighter is fighting on requires for admission, payment of a ticket or other evidence of the right of entry.
      • The event the fighter is fighting on is filmed, broadcast, or transmitted for viewing.
      • The event the fighter is fighting on provides a commercial advantage by attracting persons to a particular place or promoting a commercial product or enterprise.
    4. How much authority will the State Commission have? In determining whether to exempt an organization from licensure and permitting requirements, the commission shall consider the following factors:
      • Whether the matches, contests, and exhibitions are conducted in the course of teaching wrestling or the martial art and are closely supervised by well-trained teachers. - HOW would the Commission determine WHO is a well trained teacher?
      • Whether an admission fee is charged for viewing the matches, contests, or exhibitions. The Commission has the right to tell a promoter if they can charge admission to their events?
      • Whether the matches, contests, or exhibitions offer a commercial advantage to the organization. What?
      • Again, leaving the possibilities here Open and endless! They could come up with ANYTHING TO Exempt an organization.
    5. The bill makes no exception for "nationally recognized" sanctioning bodies. In fact the bill makes being a sanctioning body in Georgia far too expensive for any organization to operate. With 49 other States to work with, the sanctioning bodies would be forced to walk away or charge outrageous sanctioning fees to the promoters. The bill makes no exceptions for any sanctioning bodies at all which means ANYONE can sanction events in Georgia or no one, which would leave the Boxing Commission to appoint their own officials. But will they be trained by the Commission? Who will these officials be?

The Lies going around about the word

  • One of the bogus "monopoly" issues the legislature is hearing is that "legitimate" promoters are being denied ISCF sanctioning. Those with an "agenda" of their own will always find something to attack, but it is a shame when people perpetrate outright lies to gain influence. As of this posting, only 2 promoters have ever been denied ISCF Sanctioning. You ask your self if they meet the "Legitimate" Promoter requirements:

    1. Lane Collyer: Because he is now a convicted felon and the new law does not allow felons to promote. However, both ISKA and WKA have welcomed Collyer with open arms, ignoring the "Felon" ruling of the State of Georgia. For the FACTS about the entire Collyer situation and what all happened Click Here!

    2. Jamie Levine: Because on his last event, Levine bounced several checks to fighters and officials. We (ISCF) will NEVER allow this to happen again! Which it did, in Florida.
