In the world of MMA promotions, you are only as good as your ability to present the fights you advertise and your ability to pay the fighters who fight for your promotion.
One of the most notorious non-payment stories in recent memory was the co-main event put on last March by Battlefield FC in South Korea featuring Sarah Kaufman versus Jessica “Jessy Jess” Rose-Clark in a bantamweight match-up.
Kaufman won the fight by unanimous decision, but neither fighter was paid for their work. Now, a year later, it appears the promotion has finally made the situation right. Both fighters expressed to social media that they have finally been paid.
