MMA Global InvasionMore details have surfaced from other fighters who participated at the disastrous Nemesis Fighting MMA Global Invasion event from last Monday.

Immediately after the show, several Tweets went out describing how bad it was, including main event headliner Keith Jardine.

MMAWeekly.com has spoken to two others who participated on the show, Paul Buentello and Eliot Marshall, who have described just how bad it really was for them.

A quick summary includes the fact that there were no officials to regulate the event, one referee for the whole event, the first round of the first bout lasted eight minutes because there was no time keeper, there were no judges or doctors cageside, and the list simply goes on.

Here are a few comments

– “The first round of the first fight went eight minutes cause there was no timekeeper,” Marshall explained. “They realized the round was going on way too long so they threw a towel into the cage.”

– “The timekeeper used his cell phone and the guy I don’t know if he was a security guard or what, he could have been the janitor, he had a cell phone with a timer on it, and he was texting too, while he was watching the time for the fight because the fights were averaging about 5:15, 4:30, 4-minute rounds and even my fight was like 10 seconds short and then 10 seconds over,” Buentello revealed.

– “What was really crazy is when the Puerto Ricans came into the room. It was like a scene from ‘Scarface,’” Buentello said. ” When I walked into the room, I was pretty pissed, I was ready to grab him by the throat and just start dropping elbows, but right when I walked in, the Puerto Rican guys, these guys were like 4’5?, they come pushing me out of the way and they come in there speaking their language ‘we’re going to kill you right now!’ and before you know it, we had to protect the promoter cause these little guys wanted to kill him. Drag him out to the beach and slice him up. The thing is it was only over a couple thousand dollars, but these guys were pissed.”

Be sure to check out the full article so you can really appreciate just how bad it was for everyone who participated at the event.

The old adage ‘If it’s too good to be true’ rings out very loudly and it’s unfortunate that all of the participants got taken like this. Not only does a fighter not collect a paycheck but he also loses all of the time and effort he and his camp put into preparing for the fight. Hopefully some good will come from this ugly example of crooked mma promoter.
