Affliction MMA Obtains Promoter’s License In California



According to MMAWeekly Affliction Entertainment was awarded a promoters license by the California State Athletic Commission.

Affliction Entertainment, the muscle behind “Banned” and “Day of Reckoning,” was permanently granted the ability to act as the “promoter of record” for its California based shows. Until Tuesday, the company had used the promoter’s license of veteran boxing and MMA promoter Roy Englebrecht.

Affliction CEO Clifton Chason told to the commission that the next show would likely be in July.

“it’s a date that’s worked for us in the past,” and said the company was in the midst of an aggressive expansion of their clothing line.

    I might sneak in there myself, nothing changed accept now Affliction has there own MMA promotors license thats all, but they still need to really consider their pay scales a bit they will not survive/ ever compete with the UFC if they only put on 3 shows a year and fork out over 3mil in fight pay..i understand that thier bulding up but i just don see how they can survive if they need to start putting on at least 8 shows a year to even try and compete with the UFC on a national level and still except to pay their fighter a 3mil pay outs. It will be interesting to see where they go from here but they need to put on more shows. I just dont see how their making any profits.

    They won't have a successful show unless Fedor is on the card, so that's why they only have a couple of shows a year. You're right that they overpay their fighters and that's why they won't make any profits, which will lead to insufficient funds for the quantity of fighters. But in all honesty, does anyone really feel that these fighters will take a paycut to save the company? I don't think so, and it's a shame because their next move will probably be to increase clothing prices and that will suck for people like me. Then again, I have enough already.
