NoBoundary Press Release:
Tuesday, September 30, 2008 – EliteXC Professional MMA Fighter Frederic Belleton, a native of France and former Special Forces Officer, has launched his own Mixed Martial Arts organization in Massachusetts and has announced the first event, scheduled for October 11th, 2008 at the Jungleplex in Plymouth.
The promotion, named NoBoundary, has scheduled 12 fights for its inaugural card title “The Awakening”. Belleton says he has set up the event in a 3-tier format and is focusing everything on promoting the fighters and their camps. Tier 1, the Feature Fights, are battles among those that are getting set to move up to the next level in their MMA careers. Tier 2 fights are the Wars of the Newcomers; the fighters with little to no ring experience but highly touted and backed by professional MMA fighters and camps. The 3rd Tier is the MMA New England Warriors; fighters who are the backbone of the local fight scene. Drawing from his own experience, Belleton says he has set the contracts to put more money into the fighter’s pockets to allow them a better opportunity to train full time.
