    Best Minor League / Regional Promotions?

    Hello all, this is my first post outside the noob forum. So here we go.

    What are the best smaller MMA promotions? I know that King of the Cage is sort of a second tier promotion, and I've read that Ring of Combat in NJ is a good small promotion. Maybe it's a third or fourth tier promotion. Is there a promotion that only operates in your state or city that is well-run?

    The best regional shows I've been to have been put on by the RFL (Revolution Fight League) based out of Louisville, KY. They haven't had a show in almost a year, but as I understand it they're having one in june. Great cage, good production and hype.

    Vyper Fight League is cranking up in Louisville, too. They had their first event April 24, but I only caught the cable telecast. Plan on attending the May 29 event to see firsthand how they do. Davis from Ohio Valley Wrestling partnered up with Bradshaw Layfield after he retired from WWE to start it.

    Throwdown ETC in Salt Lake City Ut is a top line local show. They put on about 3-5 fights a year with some really impressive fighters. A few of the guys that fight on the show regularly, and hold the titles, are probably going to end up fighting in the UFC eventually. They also hold the fights in the same arena the Jazz play in. All in all a pretty damn classy show.

    XCC, around here, are pretty well run. Have heard good things about MXC, as well.

    Gladiator Challenge could be worse. Sometimes they get fighters in there who have no business fighting, but by the same token, guys who just want to fight get a chance to.

    Strikeforce WAS the best run regional promotion, that just got themselves unregionalized.

    Lou Negelia's Ring of Combat in A.C is relly good. They've got guys from all over the Northeast fighting with a few good prospects and a handfull of guys with UFC experience. Two guys from my gym have been fighting there.
