This is cutting edge news. A super duper exclusive scoop of someone else’s scoop: TheFightNetwork.com is reporting that there’s a ton of problems with K1’s Dynamite show. Last month the CSAC set a ton of requirements to throw the show and clear all of the fighters. Well, at this point one of the only fighters who has actually been cleared to fight is Brock Lesnar. And K1 hasn’t given the CSAC the required bond which covers the fighter’s pay in advance. You know, the tiny little details. Because of this, the Dynamite show has not been granted a license yet.
With only 10 days left till 22 fighters are supposed to step on the scales, promoters Fight Entertainment Group (FEG) have yet to be granted their requisite license by the California State Athletic Commission.
A CSAC representative says the hold-up has been FEG’s inability and hesitation to submit financial paperwork, requirements the state agency stipulates of all its applicants.
And here I thought the Gracie Fighting Championships would hold the title for the worst event planning of 2007. Of course, time isn’t out yet. However, these kinds of paperwork issues aren’t the sorts of things that can be ironed out quickly. If K1 doesn’t get it’s shit in high gear by the end of the week, the CSAC is likely to simply deny the show’s application because they haven’t met any of the required deadlines.
