What an amazing first year we have had in the org, we are now officially the No1 Kickboxing Org in the game! Thank you so much everyone for being part of this and helping us get there. We are planning on running our first PPV event at the next Machine Fight Night and even though I am expecting it to be a hard slog I have no doubt we will start getting some success around March time. Once that happens, you can all be sure to expect some big pay days coming your way when you renew as will any new fighters that want to sign with us.
Onto the awards
Machine Fight Night 4 Post Fight Awards
Thanks again to our partners at Machine Fight Gear for their generous awards at our monthly event.
Fight of the Night Award earning $4000 - Chris Deal Vs Bunt Jernit - What a back and forth fight. Bunt thought he had managed to retain his title once again with his high volume scoring, but Deal brought some serious KO power which won him the 1st and 3rd round and he managed to take it on the judges scorecards to see a new featherweight champ crowned.
Knockout of the Night earning $4000 - Goes to Oson Bon for his dominant Super Heavyweight title defence over Alexander Berkman
Fastest KO earning $7000 - Mateusz Biernat who only took 1 min 29 secs to finish Vince Bandito

Bunt finished up with 64 points, mainly down to his extremely high activity having 12 fights this year and defending 2 titles at the same time consistently until his upset at the last event. He has been gagging for an immediate rematch, but needs to defend his 135 title before he will get another chance against new champ Chris Deal. The closest fighter to him was Oson Bon scoring 53 points. A big congratulations to Bunt Jernit on this achievement.
