OK sounds good, I'll call some orgs up this week. Ring of Combat, Reality Fighting, Combat in the Cage. See where they get their fighters from or where they look for.

I hear Reality Fighting is starting to put together regular amateur shows, but I don't know the extent to which they've gotten into that yet.Undisputed KING OF ASSHOLES.

Also, I have heard from 3 AM fighters at the last show I was at that Ed Hsu sucks. One guy who fought Pro for Ed Hsu said it was good.
I don't mean to badmouth him just saying what I have been told so far.
I do like that he holds AM and PRO shows though, that is a plus.

New Breed I haven't known anyone who fought on so I don't have a clear sense of their quality one way or the other; they might be better or worse.Undisputed KING OF ASSHOLES.

I know of Hsu and I can't say anything good or bad about him. But keep in mind the dude has a lot of irons in the fire. And when it comes to ammys they are the first to be forgoten. Not a dis to you, but seriously, the guy has bigger fisher to fry rather than worry about an ammy fighter.
I am in tight with a local semi big time promoter and i know one thing. You don't want to be the ammy fighter who demands pro treatment. You get **** fights, out matched or never called. You are smart to research your fights and take the best for good shows you are golden. If you do this through one promoter then you develope a repore. And if the promter is worth a **** he'll pair you with good guys and not out match you or hand you a tomato can. Just watch out for the local hero thing. If that's all you want then cool but if you want to go farther then you need stay on top of your game. As in above the local promoters head on top.Amateur MMA record: 8-3-1

New Breed fighters is the only show I have seen so far live. I also got a great view of the show because LI GUY 1 fought in it 2x and I was a corner. Without seeing other shows, I would still say its the best. Best as far as production, putting on good fights and organization.
The owner was pretty nice and cool too, dont know much about him though. All in all though it was good.

Keep training... and venture out a bit when when you feel comfortable. We have a lot of shows in Mass... and its not that far from NY.
