In an email sent to Georgiafighters.com and the local MMA community by William “Soco” McAlister, owner and operator, SportFightX has made the difficult decision to close it’s doors on MMA promoting.
In the email McAlister says “It was our goal from the beginning to raise the quality of MMA production in the Atlanta metro area, put on the best possible fights for the fans as well as present the fighters not as mere combatants but as true professional athletes, which is the way I look at them.” It’s without a doubt that the production level of SportFightX did indeed raise the bar with regards to production value.
McAlister also did a great job marketing his brand and scoring great sponsorship deals with companies like REDLINE energy drink and Project 961 amonst others.
McAlister continued in the email, “However it comes with disappointment to announce that SportFight X and Sin City Fight Club will be closing its cage door for good. Promoting these organizations has been a positive learning experience for me and hopefully equally positive for those we came in contact with.”
The culmination of McAlister’s efforts and hard work came to fruition when he promoted a very successful 8 man tournament in the185 lbs division. The winner of the tournament pocketed a cool $10,000.00.
McAlister ended the email thanking all, “Thank you all again for the support as I will continue to return it the best I possibly can. Sincerely, William “Soco” McAlister”
Georgiafighters.com would like to wish Soco the best of luck in any of his future endeavors.
