"Day Of Reckoning"
October 23rd, 2010 - Cherokee, North Carolina, USA

ISCF Promoter's Ron Smith and Micheal Rhinehart and matchmaker Jeff Harmon hosted the fifth joint venture as fight promoters in the form of MMA promotion titled "Day of Reckoning". This was an extremely exciting MMA event as the Tribal War Promotions helped several young and upcoming fighters. There were several young men fighting their first amateur MMA fight. Although only 8 of the 16 warriors had their hand raised, all 16 of these young men were winners! However all gained knowledge of the sport and the satisfaction of being able to say they have done what very few have the courage to ever do.

The event went off flawlessly and the atmosphere at the event was electrifying. All of this would not have been possible without the event staff behinds the scenes, and we would like to express our special thanks to the following individuals that made this event such a success:

Mr. Blaine Thomas supervised the cage door. The Ring Announcer for the event was Mr. Sean Crowe. Ms. Donna Ball over saw guest entry for the event.

Dirty Politics?
Who's Trying To Get A 'Leg Up' In Indiana
And Other States With Sanctioning MMA?

Some people reading our website feel the ISCF goes out of it's way to negatively attack other sanctioning bodies for what they believe to be no reason at all. Such as the article the ISCF wrote some time ago entitled, "Don't Sanction Me" which can be found by clicking Here...

"Stick to your own business and don't mind the others!"
is what some say.

However, what many don't know are the real reasons the ISCF address issues related with other fight sport sanctioning bodies in the first place. Surly the ISCF is not perfect, but they do their best to strive to be, and as the saying goes,

"When you strive for perfection you achieve excellence."

Excellence is something the ISCF hopes "Everyone" in the fight sports attains from sanctioning bodies to promoters, fighters, officials, trainers and the sport as a whole. However, the sport will have it's setbacks as long as there are individuals who just try to "Get By" doing only the basics just to make the money the sport has to offer... The ISCF organization believes in giving more, doing more and helping those associated with them to achieve more... Achieve EXCELLENCE! this is why the ISCF is the only MMA Sanctioning organization with amateur and professional fighter rankings with contact numbers for fight promoters to find these fighters for their events, even non ISCF sanctioned events. It's why the ISCF has an upcoming events page, a news page, fully detailed rules pages, even a page where all Past ISCF Champions, pro and amateur can be found. "Give More, Do More" is the belief of the ISCF. Not just enough to "Get By" and receive a sanctioning fee check!

Stepping up and doing the right thing came easy to the ISCF. it was a tradition long established in their sister organization for kickboxing, the IKF, International Kickboxing Federation. It's not being afraid to STEP UP when someone needs to and in this case, it's following the beliefs of an individual named Edmund Burke who once said,

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing."

"It's what should be required of all of us." says ISCF/IKF President Steve Fossum. "To not just Get by, but to do Better than just Get By, Give More, Do More! It's what we all need to do."

So why does the ISCF worry about other sanctioning bodies business? "Because it's our business to not only know our competition but to make sure our competition does not destroy the fight sports by just doing enough to 'Get By'." Says Fossum.

Why else? Well, to begin with, in the past the ISCF has seen or pointed out rule violations of other sanctioning bodies such as large allowed weight spreads, pros fighting amateurs, fighters fighting while under medical suspension, mismatched bouts, unqualified officials and on and on, that are not just hearsay, but proven facts. Secondly, far too often, many of these other sanctioning bodies go out of their way to contact ISCF promoters and others in regions to tell them a lot of false and misleading information to try and get their business as their sanctioning body. like any business, there is always dirty pool, or in this case, dirty politics... And like any business, it's good business to address the bad business actions of others, and address the false and or misleading allegations others may imply of you. This is the common sense reason why the ISCF, as would any other credible business, make the public aware of the truth as compared to the BS!


Sadly, when the International Kickboxing Federation (IKF) and the International Sport Combat Federation (ISCF) find out about false or misleading information being spread about them, they end up being in the position where they have to defend themselves from these comments and claims made by other sanctioning bodies. These issues seem to come up more with two sanctioning bodies than any others, the ISKA and Kick International.

Who knows their reasons why but ISKA has made loads of false allegations to promoters in Florida, Tennessee, Nevada, South Carolina and other states that "THEY" are the only accepted sanctioning body for Kickboxing and MMA... The truth be told, This is incorrect! Sadly it has not only been representatives and officials of the ISKA who have made these claims but the actual President of ISKA as well, Cory Schafer. (Right)

NO STATE has just the ISKA as their sole sanctioning body for MMA or Kickboxing... NO STATE! On top of that, where the ISKA sanctions events, the ISCF and IKF are also approved to do the very same thing along with other sanctioning bodies.


When a State allows Sanctioning Bodies to regulate the rules and regulations for amateur Kickboxing or MMA in a state, it seems to be a very common practice of both the ISKA and Kick International to try and quickly discredit both the International Kickboxing Federation (IKF) and the International Sport Combat Federation (ISCF). Knowing this, the IKF and ISCF are always on the lookout as to who is going to make the first false alligation to try and get a leg up on other approved sanctioning bodies.

This coming November 1st the State of Indiana will be requiring all Amateur MMA events to be sanctioned by an approved sanctioning body by the State of Indiana. So far about 5 different organizations have applied for State Approval. Among them is Kick International... This is an organization the ISCF has often found themselves discussing due to their many rule violations with MMA.

Along with confronting this organization in issues related to MMA, the ISCF's sister organization, the IKF (International Kickboxing Federation has been more vocal in their defense of "MANY" false allegations by them towards the IKF along with MANY exaggerations associated to their many failed attempts of an Amateur Kickboxing Tournament in past years as they attempted to better their name or make themselves appear larger than life. The majority of these false claims and false allegations came from one of the co-owners of KICK, Ted Welch. Over the years the IKF has vigorously defended each false alligation against them.

However, this is NOT meant to be a "Mud Slinging" article as some may want to make it out to be...
Far from it!
This article is being posted today simply to defend the ISCF's reputation as a Sanctioning and Regulating body for Pro and Amateur Mixed Martial Arts around the world.

In this defense, it's the ISCF that has come under attack of sever false and misleading allegations. This time, according to (Dr.?) Jim Thomas (Left - An mma promoter the ISCF had suspended as a promoter due to rule violations in the past.), claims that Kick International President, Frank Babcock (Right) has been going out of his way trying to discredit the ISCF. In a statement made on Thomas' own website (Alliance Martial Arts in Centerville, Indiana), Thomas claims Babcock told him the following which he posted on his website newsletter page;

"Use KICK International as your Sanctioning Body. Do Not Use ISCF, this sanctioning body was dismissed from the state of Illinois a couple years ago and is now under federal investigation for other wrong doings. However, KICK International is the way to go whenever you host combative sports in your state. We provide insurance, integrity and Dr. Jim Thomas and I are great friends and KICK International is the leading, oldest networks…All states we will guide you, contact me at xxx-xxx-xxxx."

Once ISCF President Steve Fossum read the post on Thomas' website newsletter, he called Thomas directly, leaving a message for a call back on his voicemail. Later that same day Thomas returned the call. Thomas claimed he posted the above on his newsletter because there was still comments on the ISCF website about his wrongful actions that the ISCF held him accountable for a few years back. On those actions, Thomas was a co-promoter of an event and broke several rules in regards to fighter registration, fight card changes and some other things. About a year ago, Fossum and Thomas came to terms and the ISCF removed the suspension of Thomas and all details of the rule violations were removed from the ISCF web site.

When Thomas first made claims about negative things still posted about him on the ISCF website the ISCF reviewed all their web content and no where was any comments about Thomas. What the ISCF did find was some comments about Thomas on the MMA Message Board that was hosted on the ISCF web site. This thread was removed that same day.

In the same phone conversation with Thomas, he informed Fossum that it was the President of KICK International, Frank Babcock that had told him all the posted information about the ISCF. Thomas told Fossum that it was also Babcock who first told him this same info back in 2008/09. Back then, Thomas pointed the finger at an individual with the State of Indiana, John Lagauttata who Thomas claimed told him that ISCF was "Kicked out of Illinois."

In that conversation, Thomas promised Fossum that the false and misleading allegations would be removed from his website the following morning. However, here we are two days later and the content is still up. Both yesterday and today Thomas was requested to remove the content or the ISCF would be forced to defend the false allegations and to take additional action. Each time Thomas said it would be removed, yet it the content remained as of today at 1:00 PM/PST, which brought the reason for this article.

Surly anyone reading this would like the ISCF to answer to the allegations Thomas and or Frank Babcock has attacked the ISCF with. Still, according to Thomas' post on his newsletter, quote-unquote, "Jim Thomas and Frank Babcock {President of KICK International} are great friends" so no matter who wants to take claim to these false allegations, seems they both are behind it. Here is the official reply of the ISCF of the false allegations in question below.

FALSE ALLEGATION 1: Do Not Use ISCF, this sanctioning body was dismissed from the state of Illinois a couple years ago.

ISCF REPLY: The ISCF (Or the IKF Kickboxing organization) have NEVER been dismissed or banned from ANY State. However, Thomas claimed today (October 14th, 2010) to ISCF President Steve Fossum, that it was Frank Babcock {President of KICK International} that had originally told him this about the ISCF both in the past and recently. Was Thomas protecting himself from a potential slander lawsuit and waived the blame to Babcock, or would Babcock have made such a highly FALSE accusation, fully knowing the obvious reality of a slander lawsuit against him? You be the judge, but one thing is true... The comments were made on Thomas' website.

As for Illinois, the ISCF was never kicked out! The State of Illinois stopped all amateur events in late 2008 and asked all sanctioning bodies to re-apply for approval to sanction in Illinois. As all other sanctioning bodies did, theISCF "AND the IKF re-applied, and were asked to follow up on a few minor things, mainly related to weight spreads for Junior age Kickboxers (This was with the IKF, NOT the ISCF). The changes were sent in and the ISCF and IKF were awaiting approval. After all of this transpired, in August of 2009, the state of Illinois changed gears yet again and said, "No Amateur MMA or Kickboxing event requires any sanctioning from any sanctioning body." So after spending thousands of dollars flying back and forth to meetings in Illinois from California along with all the adapting of rules and regulations to meet what the State of Illinois claimed they wanted, in the end it was all worthless work... For ALL the sanctioning bodies that had applied to sanction amateur kickboxing and MMA in Illinois at that time. The ISCF was never "Kicked out" of Illinois for ANY reason, or any state.

FALSE ALLEGATION 2: The ISCF is now under federal investigation for other wrong doings.

ISCF REPLY: Interesting... The ISCF would LOVE to hear where this "Mystery" complaint is found because the ISCF has NEVER done anything wrong and there is no Federal or any other investigation towards the ISCF or towards the IKF (Kickboxing) organizations.

POST ON THOMAS' NEWSLETTER PAGE: However, KICK International is the way to go whenever you host combative sports in your state. They provide insurance, integrity and Dr. Jim Thomas and Frank Babcock {President of KICK International} are great friends and KICK International is the leading, oldest networks…Tell Frank that Jim sent you! All states he will guide you, contact Frank Babcock at XXX-XXX-XXXX

ISCF REPLY: To begin with, Yes, Kick International does provide Insurance... In fact, for those who don't know this, Frank Babcock and his partner, Ted Welch (Who according to their website is serving as treasurer of Kick) are more in the "INSURANCE" business than the "Fight Sport Sanctioning Business". Do your own research on that one... KICK has their own insurance company owned by Ted Welch. Those who have promoted with KICK will see that Ted's "SON" Gary Welch, (Gary Welch Insurance in House Springs Missouri - AIG insurance group) will sign off on whatever insurance work they offer their promoters. Many of their promoters have even claimed they have never received an insurance policy when they sanction with KICK... Why? Could it be because they don't want their promoters to see that THEY are the ones selling the insurance.

Well, if what Thomas is saying is true, that Frank Babcock filled him with all this "Babble", seems like Babcock has some questions to answer to... Possibly in a court of law... However, will he be sitting next to Thomas, or sitting alone?

The only question we may want to bring up is
"Why would the word Integrity be used in the same sentence as Kick International, Dr. Jim Thomas and Frank Babcock after they just got caught with their hands in the cookie jar... trying to spread more false allegations just to get a 'Leg Up' in yet another state... This time in Indiana?"

Can't we all just get along....
See you Cageside!
