Battlefield FC Returns after Two Years with a New Business Plan and New Ownership

mma

2017 was a remarkable year for the Korean fighters because the South Korean sports organization failed to pay them during that year’s event. However, with new owners and debts settled, they are beginning with some notable events.

Dubbed ‘The Great Beginning’ the event in Seoul, South Korea, featured a co-main event between Jessica-Rose Clark and Sarah Kaufman.

Kaufman won the bout by unanimous decision, but it would take more than a year to be paid in full for their performance.

What’s worse Clark wrote in an Instagram post shortly after the event saying that her manager gave her some cash from his pocket to pay half of her coaches, rent, and other bills.

Eventually, the two women would finally get the money, but it seemed like that was the inglorious end to Battlefield FC’s great beginning.

However, it appears that the promotion is returning after two years with a new business plan and new ownership. Battlefield FC has launched their crypto-currency and is developing a PPV broadcasting platform presumably with the hopes of creating a sort of self-contained combat sports economy.

Even though the Battlefield FC might have a poor track record for financial success, their new direction has attracted two notable veteran fighters. The Body Lock reports that Will Smith vs. Abel Trujillo is in the works for the organizations re-launch on July 27 in Macau.

The former Bellator lightweight champion, Brooks, made a well-publicized jump to the UFC back in 2016. His success would be short lived though as he was released on the back of three straight stoppage and losses over the next year-and-a-half. He then found a home in pro fighter league.

Brook’s opponent, Trujillo, has been out of competition since 2017 when he encountered a pair of losses to John Makdessi and James Vick. Trujillo went 6-4(1NC) in his five years promotion.

Trujillo and Smith will reportedly serve as the co-main event for the July event.
