Post Defunt Promotions

With the recent fall of Affliction I wanted to go over some no defunct promotions that have had some impact on modern MMA. The list I came up with are as follow:
Affliction-First stateside promotion that had Fedor onboard
EliteXC-Epidome of ProElite at its prime with Gina/Kimbo
PRIDE FC-Probably the deepest roster of MMA in history
IFL-First promotion to introduce a team format
BodogFight-Introduced us to some good modern fighters
Hero's-FEG's precussor to what is now DREAM
RINGS-Though still in existence not the promotion it was
WFA-First of many promotions to be bought out by ZUFFA
Cage Fury FC-First introduced Kimbo and Mercer to MMA
UFO-Run by MMA pioneer Antonio Inoki who fought Mo Ali
Cage Rage-First brought us Michael Bisping and many others
Rumble on the Rock-The only fight between Gomi and BJ
