Called Out to Called Off MMA

The Yacman Ron YacovettiCorrespondent INovember 10, 2009

(Los Angeles , CA) - Just three days before its November 14th event in Ontario California, the fledgling MMA Promotion, Called Out MMA, originally known as Call To Arms, a name it remains unofficially tied to somehow, canceled its third event.

The fight card was a solid one and was recently announced to be airing live on the highly regarded MMA site, Sherdog.com. The card was to feature UFC veterans Hector Ramirez, Alberto Crane and Lodune Sincaid.

Sources close to the executives said that funding due in, prior to the required deadline, did not come through.

The promotion began under CEO Michael Larson in May of 2009 and is said to have lost a significant amount of money. However in its second event, the company changed its name to Called Out MMA and a new CEO, Steve 'Stealth' Miller took over operations.

The second event, and first Called Out MMA show, featured some very talented fighters, including a newcomer to the UFC, Jay Silva.

The matchmaking for this third and now postponed show was no different, sizing up to be equally strong and exciting. The bouts scheduled were:

Hector Ramirez vs. Lodune Sincaid
Vince Ortiz vs. Georgi Karakhanyan
Wander Braga vs. Alberto Crane
Chad George vs. Greg Guzman
Sophie Bagherdai vs. Avery Vilche
Sevak Magakian vs. Jeremy Umphries
Ben Jones vs. Waylon Kennell
Juliano Prado vs. RJ Clifford
Sean Loeffler vs. Brad Harris
Maurice Jackson vs. David Mejia
Craig Wilkerson vs. Marcos Gonzalez

No future date naming when this event will be rescheduled has been announced at this time. However, fans are told they should expect it to be.
