It seemed like a great deal: a match in the Dominican Republic resort town of Punta Cana, with paid airfare and accommodations, on an event featuring multiple UFC veterans streamed worldwide via online pay-per-view.

That is what the fighters on Florida-based Nemesis Fight Promotions’ “MMA Global Invasion” card expected. What they appeared to have gotten was a surreal, disorganized evening of fights and paychecks which were not worth the paper they were written on.

I know this stuff happens occasionally but damn, having to share gloves is ridiculous. Sounds like the whole event was messed up from the start.

Yeah that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of. From the way that article read I am surprised they had cameras there to film the fights! Those fighters definitely need to get a Class Action lawsuit going to obtain the rights for those fights, and get a check too!!

It sucks, but I have little sympathy for fighters who don't get "up front cash payment" put in their fight contracts when dealing with promotions like this.

How many examples do they need?
