10/07 Super Challenge: Has finally a premierassociation been created in Brazil? Has finally a premier association been created inBrazil? This is the question which strikes my headwhen I think about the Super Challenge event that willtake place next Saturday in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Ofcourse we – from Brazil – already tried to show animage of greatest associations with Show Fight andJungle Fight. However the enough success was neverreached by any of these two events due to, whether not curious, so easy of being seen… …lack of enough people prepared behind the scenes.
Here in Brazil we already IVC and WVC, and if eventhey had reasonable cards and levels, the old schoolrules was a little catastrophic for any good propagation of both Association. Talking about JFC and Show Fight again, the mix of mismatches, weird information, plus self-centeredness took a little down the reputations of both. This is well-seen when the Super Challenge nor at least had its first edition, but with the card and the expectations did the fans and insiders to forget a little about the other two associations.
The first step of Super Challenge – a West Promotion &Entertainment show – was the join a high-level staff,headed by B-Tough Fight management, which was more than ready to show what a Professional MMA event needs. The president of West Promotion & Entertainment, Paulo Vasconcelos, had a lot of cautions and sagacity to choose people who besides understand of the stuff, have capacity to manage a good job. The result of this is also an unpublished partnership with Pride FC, which’s sending a referee(Oshiro Moritaka) and a person of his staff for the show in next Saturday 7th.
The card is the primordial stuff of a fight event, andthis one of Super Challenge is great, withwell-rounded fighter battling three times in samenight to reach more reputation and a never seen before money prize of 35 thousand reais. Teake a look on the card below and you’ll identifyfighters with experience in WEF, RINGS, KOTC, IVC,Shooto Japan, Pride Bushido, DEEP, MARS, Cage Rage,Pancrase and many others.
