The Disturbing Case of Nemesis Fighting: MMA Global Invasion

This is the latest from MMAOpinion. Thought it was disturbing, but worth posting.

There are always weird stories in MMA. There are shady figures, and those who have been around here the stories of the Yakuza in Japan and the mob myths surrounding boxing, kickboxing and MMA.

Nemesis Fighting, a promotion that was basically unknown to most MMA fans, has drawn recent attention that takes it well beyond the simply bizarre series of situations that is Shine Fights. The first major issue that got spread around was the reported failure to pay competitors on their recent card. The subsequent release of details from Eliot Marshall (11-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) and Paul Buentelo (29-13 MMA, 3-3 UFC), and later Keith Jardine (16-9-1 MMA, 6-7 UFC), make this look like a very, very shady operation.

While an organization like Shine warrants skepticism, as they have the possibility of doing interesting things as they develop a roster of fighters, no such doubt should be granted to Nemesis Fighting. Thereís not going to be any doubt, since the condemnation from most has been swift and vigorous (despite the concern over possibilities of legal action), but what this shows is that an organization that can put together a roster of former UFC fighters and turn out to be devastating in either its maliciousness or incompetence. (Normally I tend towards the later, because of my belief in Hanlonís Razor; but this case has me leaning the other way.)
