The event took place at a dynamite facility, the Valdosta/Lowndes Convention Center in Valdosta, Georgia.

Miller's trainers plans now are to turn him Pro for his next bout. If Croft keeps working hard, we would love to see these two meet up again down the road.

    defeated Jason Hathaway of Hinesville, Georgia, USA (2-6-1, 186, 5'6", 27, 6-25-77, Self) by armbar at 1:32 of round 1. What can be said about the humble master Foster. He just keeps turning in the same results... Win baby Win!

    Cam McHargue of Griffin, Georgia, USA (12-2, 169, 5'11", 35, 5-26-69, Joel Chauors)

For more info go to or contact Mr. Dan Severn at (517) 278-4908 or by e-mail at For additional info on Dan "The Beast" Severn, go to

The Danger Zone was formed by Dan Severn, one of the best fighters in the world and the only triple crown Ultimate Fighting Champion. He has a tremendous reputation in the sport as a fighter and now is bringing his knowledge to the promotion arena. This is the bedrock of mixed martial arts fighting. Dan has assembled the best rules and regulations, equipment, officials, and together with various state agencies, has created The Danger Zone Mixed Martial Arts Production.

The Danger Zone is an event where two athletes of different disciplines may be able to display their skills against one another. This event puts competitors in their proper weight classes, skill level, and promotes sportsmanship through competition. This type of competition is intense, a physical and psychological chess match. You can no longer be a one-dimensional athlete. You must be well versed in the combination of wrestling, judo, sambo, and jui jitsu. There is never a lull in the action. The matches start on their feet where a KO or TKO can end a match. If there is a clinch, the action doesn't stop there. They are headed to the ground where the match may be ended with a submission, joint manipulation, KO, or TKO! Dan has been involved in this type of competition since the sport began in 1994. With his knowledge of the game, he hopes to bring The Danger Zone to new heights in the sport today.

Rumble In The Jungle VI
St. Louis, Missouri, USA

After a rocky start to the week, Match Maker and Promoter Jesse Finney put together a great card. As stated late last week, Witney Wadell Sr. pulled out 6 fighters on Wednesday. Then on Thursday 2 more fighters pulled out at the last minute. This left Finney with 1 fight on Thursday morning. By the time the fights started on Saturday night it was hard to tell all the headaches that Finney overcame to get the night started.

    The night started out with a women's exhibition between two of Finney's Championship Kickboxing and Martial Arts fighters. Robin Connelly and Amanda Freedland put on an awesome display kickboxing, which led a lot of people to wonder if they were really from the same gym. Both fighters put it out on the line for the entire three rounds.

    The 2nd fight of the night was the first NHB fight on the card. Josh Fritter of Evansville, Indiana and Marcus Davidson of Decatur, Illinois both came to fight. The fighters stood and exchanged low kicks and punches until Davidson connected with a solid right dropping Fritter to the canvas. Davidson seeing the opportunity attacked which resulted in him getting the win by rear naked choke at 2:34 in the 1st round.

    This fight was between Mike Green of St. Louis, Missouri and Peter Grine from Bloomington, Illinois. Grine started out showing his background in Muay Thai, landing many low kicks to Green's thigh, which later left a good bruise. Green stayed tough and landed a big right hand, stunning Grine and taking him to the ground. Green quickly controlled Grine and moved to his back. Green took the win by rear naked choke at 1:49 of the 1st round.

    The fourth fight was an amateur boxing match between Finney's Tim Connor and Edwin Flores of St. Charles, Missouri. Connor's came out setting the speed of the fight working his jab and working Flores body. Connor continued landing multiple combinations until dropping Flores at 1:52 of the 1st round. Flores couldn't make the count, Connor wins by KO.
    The fifth fight of the night was between John Manke Team Vaghi and William Winchester trained by Lincoln Turner from Kailua, Hawaii. The fight started with both fighters throwing punches, and then getting in the clinch. This is where Manke did some damage, landing multiple knees to Winchester's body, finally taking him to the ground. Manke wasted little time, getting the mount position. Manke landed some punches finally switching over to his Jui Jitsu background and winning by arm bar at 1:46 of the 1st round.

    The final match before the main event was suppose to be another amateur boxing match between Kevin Engel and Mike Gladney. However Gladney called his trainer at 6:30 PM on Saturday night telling him he wasn't showing up. His trainer Jim Howell, quickly made some calls and found a fighter at the last minute. Brian McClene filled the spot and was more than ready to fight. him and Engel both came out trying to establish there game plans. The first round had Engel connecting with his jab, giving him the round on all three Judges cards. The second round was a tight one but Engel continued to connect with his jab and landed some solid right hands. McClene landed a lot of big punches throughout the round also. After 2 rounds 2 judges had it even and 1 had Engel up by 2 rounds. The third round was just as exciting as the second with both fighters landing punches. Engel's punches looked to have more impact in the round which ended up getting him the win by unanimous decision, 30-27, 29-28, 29-28.

    The main event was just as exciting as the other nights bouts. Dustin Severs of Festus, Missouri and Ryan Kronewitter from Vinecunes, Indiana. Sever's record was 4-1, and Kronewitter's record was 3-1. This fight was action packed from the sound of the bell. Both fighters landed a couple of punches while on their feet. Until Severs took Kronewitter to the mat, and giving him good position to use is ground stills. Kronewitter being no strange to the ring quickly worked to get Severs into his guard. Kronewitter showed some of his Jui Jitsu skills getting Severs in an arm bar from his back but Severs escaped and regained ground control. The 10 second whistle sounded as Severs was working for a key lock, finally sinking it in, forcing Kronewitter to tap at 2:57 of the 1st round. Severs improves to 5-1 with 5 wins by submission.

    Guillard defended the first triangle, but when Defranco locked in the second one, there was no escaping.

Worthy of mention is the fact that Chandler Oakes made it to the parking lot, but not into the building, taking off and leaving George Kassaeve with no opponent. Also, Todd Cutler left a cryptic e-mail the night before about his corner and "ride" having to leave town on an emergency. Rather than contact the promoter on the telephone, he simply no-showed from there. Then, on the day after, he wrote a nasty e-mail about how he trains with UFC veteran Rich Crunkelton and doesn't need "crackers" like Brett Moses.
Hey, FYI for ya Cutler.. No one here needs you either!

Stickup Man Smacked Down by Customers
Tuesday, November 02, 2004 -

Dennis Hallman,
An alleged restaurant holdup man found tougher customers than he'd bargained for, according to police in Vancouver, Wash. Russell R. Rogers, 64, walked into Elmer's Restaurant in the Portland, Oregon, suburb at about 2PM October 24th, brandishing a gun and demanding money, customers and staffers told the Longview, Washington Daily News. Enjoying a late Sunday brunch at the restaurant were "extreme fighting" pro Benji Radach (Right), 25, and his sparring partners, Dennis Hallman, (Left) 28, along with two women. As other customers ducked under tables or ran out the doors, and the cashier started to hand over money, Radach and Hallman snuck up behind Rogers.

"I kind of went over it in my mind, and walked over there," Radach told the newspaper. Rogers looked to his left and shouted out that he had a gun. Radach came up behind on the right, grabbed Rogers with a wrist lock and got the pistol out of the gunman's hand. Radach then forced Rogers' hands back behind him and pushed him face-first to the ground as Hallman frisked him for more weapons. Radach then knocked Rogers out with a blow to the head.

Police booked Rogers for first-degree robbery. "You see it in movies and you go over it in your mind," Radach later said, "but you never deal with it in real life." Radach is an expert in Pankration, an ancient Greek combination of boxing, kickboxing and wrestling. Also known as "The Razor," he has a 23-3 record in freestyle wrestling and Ultimate Fighting.

Benji Radach

"I just know that I've been training for a long time and more than most people," said the 6-foot, 185-pound Radach. "Especially more than someone who's a crook and probably doesn't train." He later admitted that his decision to take on an armed man was kind of "stupid." "All he had to do was to turn to his right and he could have shot me," Radach told the Daily News. "But for some reason I felt I could do it. I saw the way he was looking and I felt that if I could just get his gun, I could get him to the ground."

His father agreed. "I should be proud, but the things that goes through a parent's mind," said Kim Radach. "That guy could have turned around and Benji could have been bleeding or dead on the ground." Lorrie Whitlow, the restaurant manager, said the heroes' brunch was on the house, but also had her doubts about future customer heroics. "I wouldn't recommend that anyone do that," Whitlow said. "But this time, it was a positive result."

I Don't Want Anyone Watching Over My Shoulder
So I Want To Be A Sanctioning Body!

So, your a Mixed Martial Arts Promoter and doing great with your events. Then, the State Boxing Commission steps in and tells you, "You can still do your events however, you need to have a nationally recognized MMA Sanctioning body sanction your events." So... What does this mean?

It appears there are several in the fighting sports that think all there is to making a sanctioning body is to throw some letters together and give away a title. Here's a pretty simple 411/FYI for those groups. This does NOT make a sanctioning body. To fill some of you in who are wondering if you have selected a "TRUE" Sanctioning body we ask you to ask yourselves these few simple questions:

  1. Does the organization your looking into promote their own events?
    If yes, they are NOT a sanctioning body. This would be like watching over yourself and if you do wrong, so what... A Sanctioning body must ALWAYS be a neutral entity, unattached to the promoted event. Unfortunately, there is only 1 "Non Promoting" sanctioning body in Mixed Martial Arts and that is, the ISCF. Now, if our sanctioning fees were like say, the state of Florida ($5,000.00) we could say, we are a monopoly and trying to corner the market. However, our general sanctioning fee can be as low as $150.00, which is a far cry from $5,000.00. You see, there is no big money in running a "REAL" sanctioning body unless your sanctioning Pro Boxing. Sanctioning fees there are based upon Pro fighters purses so it's not uncommon to see a Pro Boxing Sanctioning fee of 6 figures.

  2. IF you can find an actual NEUTRAL - NON PROMOTING Sanctioning body other than the ISCF, the next question is,
    Where are their rules and regulations?
    If they are a true sanctioning body you would find their rules listed on a public website like we have done. To see our rules CLICK HERE.

  3. OK, So lets say you had no problem with number 1 and even number 2 above. Next lets look at what they sanction.
    What rules do they have for their promoters to follow?
    What are these things?
    Well, with the ISCF they are several things from ringside officials, medical staff to fighters insurance. Here are some links to check out for some of these requirements:

  4. OK, So you past with number 1 and number 2 and now you have all the info like on number 3 above. So what's next?
    Well, how about rankings and listed title holders?
    Yes, we need to have rankings if we're a sanctioning body. What? It's a lot of work to do that! well, we never said running a sanctioning body was easy. But again, many just want to do it to avoid following rules and regulations, not secure safety and credibility in the sport. Oh, if your looking for the ISCF Rankings, Click HERE.

  5. So now we are on number 5. Really moving now. You have got all the above in place and now you want to know what's next. Well, there's plenty more but should we continue? Check out the sanctioning page by Clicking HERE for more info or just look over our site. Hopefully you can see what it takes to make the ISCF click.

So that's it?
Why of course that's it. How hard can this be right?
Well, if it was so easy everyone would be doing it... Which... NO one else is.
Why? Well, where's the golden egg? Where's the big Money?
You see, you can make money at promoting and hopefully a lot, because there's a lot of work involved to do it. But as a sanctioning body? Well, don't expect any big rewards. Here at the ISCF, the "ONLY" reason we survive is because of our other businesses related to the ISCF in the ring sports. Do the math guys... Unless we Promote MMA Events like all the other "Promoting - Sanctioning Bodies" do, or unless we change our Georgia Rules and Regulations to be able to get a Florida fee of $5,000 per event, the numbers just don't add up for all the work we do. Sure, we could cross that line and just start promoting events ourselves, and we might do pretty well. However, where would we be as far as ethics and credibility in the sport? Exactly where we don't want to be!

Although we hear about them all the time, we recently were informed of 3 or 4 "Promoters" in Missouri and Kansas have started their own sanctioning bodies, or... Think they have. Again, remember number 1 above. "If you promote events, you are NOT a sanctioning body!" However, they believe they are and they have been calling up our promoters and offering to sanction their events at a major price reduction. How can they do this? Because they make their money as promoters, and don't offer a fraction of what the ISCF offers as a REAL Sanctioning body.

How Can The ISCF Help Promoters?
So what does the ISCF offer?
Click HERE.

Well, the rope is short for them and several others because several states are closing in on these "Promotional Organizations" and their time is limited. There has been reports of no medical staff at ringside, no fighter insurance, changes in rules without informing the fighters, fixed (worked) bouts, you name it, the list goes on and on and not just from some of the smaller organizations, but even some very well known promotional groups.

So why do we here at the ISCF care?
Well, we can assure you, as you can see, it's not because of money. There are many reason we here at the ISCF do what we do and here are just a few...

From the State Boxing Commissions we have spoken to, they are ready to close down all Mixed Martial Arts in their state because of these "Promoting Sanctioning Bodies." There have been so many that have popped up it's become a laugh to those who are truly trying to honestly sanction the sport. So as we prepare to close out 2004, we await the decisions of many of these states who have told these MMA Promoters,

You can still do your events however, you need to have a nationally recognized MMA Sanctioning body sanction your events.

It will be interesting what new rules are established for 2005 if not sooner. Maybe all these States can adopt laws like in Georgia where all MMA must be regulated by a "REAL" Sanctioning body, such as the ISCF and pay that terrible fee of $150.00. Or, for those who don't like the ideas and beliefs of the ISCF, some states can simply adopt the laws of the State of Florida where every promoter pays a $5,000 sanctioning fee per event. Oh but wait, there is still that last choice, or for at least as long as it's possible.

Just "THROW" some letters together and call yourself a sanctioning body, and better yet, give one of your WORLD UNIVERSE GALACTIC Titles to your buddy Joe. Heck, he helped load in the ring, so he deserves such a title in his first fight... Right? Besides, no one in the stands (Those die hard fans who pay their hard earned money to you so you can continue to promote your passion...) will ever know he's not a contender, and why tell them the truth!

But hey... Isn't that yet ANOTHER duty of a sanctioning body? To bring credibility to a title?
We sure wouldn't want that to happen now would we...

This is our mission...

The ISCF Mission For Mixed Martial Arts...
"Safety, Credibility, Fairness, Recognition, Support & Unification
of Mixed Martial Arts Around The World"

"The goal of the International Sport Combat Federation is to regulate safe and fair rules and regulations and help provide exposure and opportunities for local, regional, national and international competition among amateur and professional mixed martial arts fighters, trainers, promoters and officials. We will, through adherence to and enforcement of these rules and regulations, strive to make competitive mixed martial arts fighting a safe and fair sport as we continue to help bring exposure to and enhance the present as well as the future of the sport we serve, Mixed Martial Arts."

Atlanta, Georgia, USA - October 15th, 2004
By Fight Party Productions Press

ISCF Promoter Brett Moses and his Fight Party Productions has yet "AGAIN" hosted "ANOTHER" Sellout event.
This time it was COMPOUND FRACTURE which played to a packed house this last Friday night at the DeKalb Atlanta Centre in Atlanta Georgia, USA.

Here are the nights results below

  1. Tim Gawenda (Eagle) defeated Andrew Larabee (Combat Fight Team) 1:16 Round 1, TKO.
    Larabee was no match for Gawenda in this challenge match as Gawenda totally dominated en route to the TKO.

  2. Keith Bach (Alliance/Combatives) defeated Shane Pressley (Velocity) 12:00 by Unanimous Decision.

  3. Cory Nestlehutt (Velocity) defeated David Baggett (Kimura) at 2:28 of round 1 by TKO.
    Nestlehutt let loose with everything but the kitchen sink.

  4. Scottie Newton (S.C.) defeated Jeremy Fischer (Anderson Vale Tudo) at 2:38 of round 3 by Corner Stoppage.
    Newton dominated though Fischer had his moments. Then, in Round 3, Newton let loose with a flurry and Fischer's corner threw the towel in.

  5. Petrus Walker (American Top Team) defeated Jake Goode (Obake) at 1:06 of round 2 by KO.
    Goode appeared to be dominating early landing some big shots and avoiding "The Buffalo's" submission attempts. Then, following a stand up in round 2, the 276 lb. Walker unleashed a huge head kick which took the big man out.

  6. Jason Miller (AMA – Augusta, GA) win by default over Joshua Hancock.
    The oft-plagued Hancock did not show. This is not the first time Hancock has been involved in controversy…

  7. Tim Stout defeated Devon Powers (Kimura) at 31 seconds of round 1 by KO.
    "MOAB" Stout was too much for Powers.

  8. Mike Israel (Tiger) defeated Mac Teasley (Anderson Vale Tudo) at 1:07 of round 1 by Tap Out, Triangle Choke.
    Teasley started the fight with a brutal slam; however, Israel maintained his composure and secured the triangle for the win.

  9. Ryan Ellison (Alliance/Team Jacare) defeated Chris Monzo (Team Oyama) at 1:53 of round 1 by Tap Out, Strikes.
    Ellison dominated Monzo, taking his time and "cooking" him for the victory.

  10. Rashad Khalliq (Velocity) defeated Sam Frankel (Alliance – Dallas) at 1:33 of round 1 by Verbal Submission.
    Up & coming fighter Khalliq, fighting with a broken hand (Which we were informed of after the bout), beat Frankel at his own game – STAND UP. Frankel verbally submitted after being punched, hit with knees, and then severely cut by a flurry to the face and head.

  11. Lionel Cortes defeated Morrison Butler (Velocity) at 3:33 of round 3 by KO.
    This seesaw battle between two fighters who had fought previously three years prior, ended with Cortes catching Butler in the corner and unloading.

  12. Raphael Assuncao (Alliance/Team Jacare) defeated Chad Lawshe at 54 seconds of round 1 by Guillotine.
    Hats off to Pro Boxer Lawshe who took the fight on four days notice after two separate scheduled Assuncao opponents went down with injuries. Lawshe wanted a taste of MMA, but the highly regarded Assuncao was just too much for him.

  13. Melvin "The Young Assassin"Guillard (Anconas Gym) defeated Jason Hathaway (U.S. Army) at 37 seconds into round 1 by Referee Stoppage.
    Hathaway took this fight on one days notice after Melvin's original MAIN EVENT opponent, Antonio McKee, went down with an ankle injury. Hathaway took a knee while shooting in and the young assassin let loose. Referee Cam McHargue stepped in to halt the bout.

Rough N Tumble Challenge
Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - October 16th, 2004
IKF Virginia Representative Craig Smith

First time ISCF Promoter Kevin Weston hosted his first event entitled The Rough N Tumble Challenge here in Virginia Beach Virginia, USA this last Saturday night. What a first event it was, with about 400 spectators and about another 50 fighters and trainers the house was rocking for this event. I was asked by the IKF/ISCF to represent this event and I gained much experience due to the fact I normally put on IKF Kickboxing FCR events only.

For my first MMA event and Kevin's as well, I believe it went off great. The event started around 7:20 PM and we were done by 9:PM. Plenty of time for the crowd to get out wanting more and asking when Kevin was going to put on his next event. There were plenty of Tap-Outs and Knockouts to keep the crowds eyes glued to the ring. Of the 9 bouts only one went the distance, and that was the very first one between two heavyweights. We ended the night with a Super Heavyweight bout that rocked the crowd with some heavy punches and a referee stoppage. Congratulations to Kevin and his team for pulling off a very powerful first event. I would be more than happy to represent the IKF/ISCF if Kevin were to do another show anytime soon.

Randy Hall
The Senator Who Saved
Mixed Martial Arts!

Randy Hall needs your SUPPORT... As an MMA fan you should send him some.
By Cal Cooper -

Who is Randy Hall, you ask? He's the Georgia State Senator who helped MMA fans crush a Boxing Commission bid to take over the profitable sport of MMA last year. ( This of course, took place after the Boxing Commission had tried and failed to shut down MMA on several occasions over the last decade. Randy Hall (Right) is one of the few good guys in a position of power who is willing to support MMA - because he understands it clearly. Specifically, Randy Hall was the Senator who represented the Georgia MMA community when House Bill 558 was in Senate Committee. He was the outside go-to Senator that the Committee viewed as the sports voice. And Randy kept the Bill in Committee (and out of the Senate) long enough for the 2004 Legislative Session to end, effectively stopping the Boxing Commission power grab. MMA stayed in the hands of those that know the sport and grew the sport into a modern competition.

As most fans know, MMA is a pretty consistently misunderstood sport, and it often comes under attack from politicians seeking an easy and popular target. It's a fact of life in politics. MMA faces a separate struggle in every state, and with the exception of Nevada and New Jersey, there are usually no high powered backers like Zuffa, Inc. to help the sport along its troubled path towards mainstream understanding. States like Georgia depend on a few unbiased, even-handed individuals like Randy Hall to keep the sport safe and legal.

Readers may remember that earlier this year and helped promote a massive write-in campaign to stop House Bill 558 in Georgia. Thousands of you wrote e-mails, faxed letters, and made phone calls to the Georgia legislators and the Secretary of State's office. You made a huge impact. Every Senator in the Georgia State Senate was talking about HB558 - for the right reasons. They didn't want to touch it with a 10-foot pole! Public sentiment weighs heavily in the Senate where Bills are often passed into Law without any public feedback. The last thing Georgia Senators expected was that a sports Bill would cause such a furor! The pressure applied by the MMA and Kickboxing Communities was the leverage that Randy Hall used to help us get what we wanted - fairly regulated MMA without criminal involvement. And although MMA fans created the pressure, they could not have succeeded without Senator Hall. Randy is an MMA hero who was willing to represent us to his inside Senate connections.

Now, Senator Hall is in a fight to retain his Senate seat. He is up against competition willing to fight dirty and use any means, to get him out of office. In short, he is under attack! If he is unsuccessful in his bid for reelection, one of our strongest and most reliable supporters will be lost. It is time for the MMA and Kickboxing communities to rise up for Senator Hall the way he did for all of us. His website allows for online contributions via PayPal ( He needs our help. We need to help him and ourselves.

For two years running, Senator Randy Hall stepped up and saw to it that bills designed to corrupt and destroy our sports were defeated. Even though there were pressures from lobbyists and threats from those pushing these bills, Randy Hall did what was right. He listened to us and stood by us all the way. We should give him the same respect and support him now that he needs us.

With the significant growth of MMA worldwide and the UFC/Fox Sport Net deal looming, it is tempting to forget what a long struggle our sport has had. But let me assure you that the day is not yet won. Most people don't even know what MMA is, and this period of transition into the mainstream spotlight may be the most dangerous time of all. People like Randy Hall will keep our higher profile safe from more opportunistic attacks and power grabs. With the help of the Randy Halls in this world we may be able to keep MMA fan-based and help it avoid the pitfalls that destroyed Boxing.

Consider skipping your next DVD purchase or fightwear purchase and send a few dollars to Randy Hall! ( I'll keep you all updated on the progress of the support for this Real Warrior in the fight for MMA!
Thanks, Cal Cooper
