FFC Makes Its US Debut With a Bang: Brestovac Scores KO Victory

(C) FFC

Last night in Daytona Beach, Florida FFC made their US debut with a joint MMA and kickboxing event. The kickboxing side was headlined by Croatian fighter, recently a GLORY title contender, Mladen Brestovac, taking on US fighter Steven Banks. Banks has been living and training out of Thailand of late, mostly competing in China, so the trip back to the US was a rarity for the fighter. It was a tough fight for both fighters but the signature head kick of Brestovac was simply too much for Banks, with it ending in the second round via TKO.

Mladen Brestovac (CRO) def. Steven Banks (USA), TKO (highkick), R2, 2:42

Tigran Movsisyan (ARM) def. Jovan Davis (USA), Unanimous decision

Michael Stripling (USA) def. John Morehouse (USA), Unanimous decision

Details on Enfusion Live's VOD Service and Enfusion Live 40 Fight Card

Enfusion has been giving away their content for a while now, but as most understand, giving stuff away for free without huge sponsorships isn't always the greatest business model. Enfusion will now make the move to a paid format for both their live events and their library. It's an interesting move in an age when digital networks and VOD subscriptions have become increasingly normal for companies with a big library. WWE has been slowly crawling to two million subscribers with their WWE Network, UFC has been acquiring content like crazy for UFC Fight Pass, but when it comes to smaller organizations it's never clear if this is the "right" or wrong move. 

Enfusion is charging 4.99 euros a month ($5.57) for a subscription to the library as well as 4.99 euros per live PPV event. From the time that I've been running a kickboxing site there have been promotions offering online PPVs that have looked to partner with us, outside of those crazy stacked early GLORY events none of them really sold anything. From the conversations that I've had with other people within the business they seem to agree that online PPVs simply do not sell. In this case, depending on the lag time between when Enfusion Live airs a live show and when they add it to their library, a patient fan could simply have a VOD subscription and be fine. So while I understand subscribing to the VOD service, I kind of wish that the live events were mixed in with it as well.

That being said, their introductory offers are generous, to say the least. For right now it's 4.99 euros for one month, 24.99 euros for six and 49.99 euros for twelve. As a part of this introductory offer, paying for one month gets you three months, paying for six gets you nine and paying for twelve gets you fifteen. If anything, this feels aimed at the hardcore Enfusion Live fan. So if that's you, then, well, you've already subscribed.

On top of that, Enfusion Live will be running their 40th numbered event this weekend in Spain.

GLORY 31 Sees Major Changes: Saenchai Debut, Interim Light Heavyweight Title

Big news today as the upcoming GLORY 31 has had a few changes to the SuperFight Series portion of the card. Mosab Amrani has been forced to pull out of his fight with Eddy Nait-Slimani and in perhaps one of the best late replacements ever announced, Saenchai will be taking his place. Yes, that Saenchai. Eddy Nait-Slimani went from having to face a popular Dutch fighter in the Netherlands to having to fight a living legend in Saenchai PKSaenchaiMuayThaiGym. Ouch.

Another change is that due to Artem Vakhitov suffering an injury, he'll be out for an undisclosed amount of time. That means that Zack Mwekassa vs. Mourad Bouzidi is now for the Interim Light Heavyweight Championship. If that seems like a bit of a sudden decision, remember that Gokhan Saki held the GLORY Light Heavyweight title for 471 days without a single defense and GLORY is looking to keep their titles active. They've promised a bout between Vakhitov and the winner here when Vakhitov is healthy.
