A new big MMA organization which will be called “Fighter Mania Championship” (FMC) is starting in South Korea. The first event is planned to take place in September in Seoul and a press conference is planned for July. Aleksander Emelianenko, Choi Mu Bae, and Blagoi Ivanov (the guy who beat Fedor in Combat Sambo) are already at the verbal level in regards to participation. They are planning to hold an event per 2-3 months all around South Korea.

The company behind the event is an MMA/Martial Arts management company called “Fighter Mania Entertainment”. The company will also hold amateur events (starting in July) for domestic talent between the big FMC events.

FME representative Kim said that they are aiming at the organization becoming to the level that PRIDE was and the UFC is.

There are rumors that they are currently negotiating with all three of the Emelianenko brothers (Aleksander is already confirmed). PRIDE was very popular in Korea and Fedor is well-known there. I have even seen UFC and K-1 mentioned in Korean movies.

Kim also mentioned Mirko CroCop, Mark Hunt, and Jerome Le Banner.

This is great! I think there's now enough talent in Korea to put together a decent promotion. It'll be interesting to see what direction they go and how they get there...

Something like PRIDE without the hometown favoritism and David vs Golaith fights would be awesome, but I'm expecting something more along the lines of a smaller Sengoku.
