CHICAGO LOSES TOP MMA PROMOTION

File this under sad but true. Mayhem Promotions is done promoting MMA events here in the Chicago area.

Chicago’s MMA confirmed this with Mayhem’s Jeff Albin. “It’s definitely not something we wanted, that’s for sure. We had some major issues with sponsors not paying and it snowballed from there. We really appreciated the fighters, their camps, Combat Consulting and all the other quality people that made our shows work.”

The “Disorderly Conduct” shows were a pleasure to watch and cover . The events were always of the highest quality, professional from top to bottom. This is a huge loss for the Chicago MMA community, and we’ll miss covering the events.

Watch some of the best fights from the “Disorderly Conduct” events:

Mike Welch vs. Donald Harper, Disorderly Conduct III

Ben Koff vs. Clark Adams, Disorderly Conduct II

Keith Colon vs. Matt Swanson, Disorderly Conduct II

Chris Lane vs. Mike Welch, Disorderly Conduct II

    sad to hear, but hopefully fewer promotions will mean better fighters and fights for the rest of everybody.

    i loved fighting for you guys….nothing bad at all to say…unlike other companies that came and went in chicago you looked out for the fighters and not the money your gaining from the fighters, i think i talked to jeff and joe more than i talked to my mom leading up to my fight lol

    thanks guys for great shows and a great opportunity

    Your show will be missed. My team truly enjoyed fighting on your cards. It was a great time for all the fighters and the fans. Mayhem Promotions was very professional to all of us. Hope to see you around.

    Chicago Loses Top MMA Promotion, ha what a joke, 3 or 4 shows and there done? WTF I went to two of these shows and they both were horrible. It’s no wonder they couldn’t cut it, the majority of the fights were uneven and uninspired to say the least. the last show i was at was almost empty. Dude you can’t be a top promotion if you can’t manage your money right. BS that sponsors screwed them over, tell the truth daddy got tired of you two idiots blowing his money. Said it before I’ll say it again, it takes more then money in the bank to put on good shows.

    You’re certainly entitled to your opinion. But don’t confuse quantity with quality. Read into that however you see fit.

    they had no idea what they were doing. i fought for them and broke my foot in two places and they refused to pay the medical bills but they put on 2 or 3 more shows after the fact. and its a little ridiculous becuase its law in illinois that you have to provide medical insurance for fighters. they were nice guys and all but had no idea what they were doing when it came to mma
