It does, thanks for your reply.  You just can't have officials from a sanctioning body also bring fighters to an event, it casts everyone in a bad light.  Also, my advice to you is take the reins of this event.  Don't leave it to IMMAF to promote or it will end like the past event.

What happened with the last event? Was that a US qualifier or???? Phone Post 3.0

It was the US qualifier.  There were no fighters from Las Vegas and few from Western US.  The fights were daytime on weekdays.  There was virtually no fans.  The event wasn't advertised or promoted. IMMAF officials brought fighters and acted as both coaches IMMAF officials.

That said, this is a new day, a brilliant promotion has been brought in, TUF so I anticipate massive improvement.  Hopefully it will draw attendance because there were some very good fights.  I am looking forward to alot of good fights with international talent and great promotion.

For those who haven't been to a Tuff-n-Nuff, they put on good fights with good production and promotion.  It looks like a good pro show and the fighters are always pleased the way they are treated.  I highly recommend it.

Was there some sort of legal beef between you and the prior promoters? Based on the below press release, it looks like they tried to get an injunction to stop you from doing the show...?


IMMAF Ruling Allows Mixed Martial Arts World Championships to Proceed in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The first amateur Mixed Martial Arts World Championships will proceed as planned in the sport's unofficial capital, Las Vegas, Nevada, on June 30-July 5, 2014.
Marquis Aurbach Coffing attorneys Jason M. Gerber and Vincent J. Vitatoe successfully defended the right of the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) to host the 2014 IMMAF World Championships scheduled to begin on June 30, 2014 at the UNLV's Cox Pavilion. The World Championships represent a major development in bringing the sport of MMA to an international, world-class level.
On June 25, 2014, in an emergency hearing before United States Federal District Court Judge Jennifer A. Dorsey, Gerber and Vitatoe argued successfully that IMMAF's 2014 World Championships should be permitted to go forward as planned. The Federal Court denied Plaintiffs Las Vegas Mixed Martial Arts (LVMMA) and Robert Johnston's request to halt the World Championships.
Plaintiffs claimed to be the promoter for the 2014 World Championships as a reason to stop the Championships but could not succeed on any of the legal points necessary to hold up the tournament. Judge Dorsey ruled that the Plaintiffs' request was not supported by evidence and could not meet the minimum requirements to obtain injunctive relief.
Now, IMMAF and Las Vegas are poised to welcome 150 amateur athletes from 30 different countries, their teams, coaches and families for this landmark 2014 World Championships. The World Championships' finals will be held at the UFC Fan Expo on July 5, 2014.
