411's MMA Roundtable 1.14.08: 2007 - A Year to Remember
Fans would be hard-pressed to find a twelve-month stanza in Mixed Martial Arts history filled with as many memorable moments as 2007. Dubbed by many as "The Year of the Upset", the MMA world would bear witness to multiple "Fight of the Year" candidates, phenomonal individual performances, underdogs overcoming the odds, and countless other memorable moments inside arenas from coast-to-coast. The past year also brought forth the creation of 411Mania's MMA Zone. What started out as a handful of Mixed Martial Arts enthusiasts bombarding the board with original content and news bits soon morphed into one of 411Mania's most popular areas. Now featuring fresh submissions on a daily basis from a pool of talented MMA writers, an increasing score of exclusive interviews, and a constantly-updated news section, it stands to reason 2008 should be an even more-successful year.

Finger Pointing Replaces Fights
At least Mark Kerr got his 20 percent. While "The Smashing Machine" had planned on collecting $15,000 Saturday night, he like his opponent and 16 other mixed martial artists learned they wouldn't fight because promoters failed to provide sufficient funds. Problems first surfaced Friday evening after Rick Bassman, the promoter of record, informed the California State Athletic Commission that money had not been secured to pay fighters. Bassman, who has promoted several Valor Fighting shows in California, said World Cagefighting Organization's Bruce Bellocchi hired him to use his promoter's license and to produce the event and perform administrative functions.
