“By fighters, for fighters”; the mission statement of one of South Florida’s premiere amateur MMA promotions and one of the most exciting promotions going into 2013. American Battle Championships operates out of West Palm Beach, FL. The promotion made its debut in early 2012, putting on over 100 fights at 7 different events throughout the year. As stated in their mission statement, they are run by fighters. ABC is run by 3 young fighters, all of which call South Florida home. The first of those fighters is Sky Moiseichik, the promoter and co-owner. Sky owns an amateur record of 11-2 and pro record of 3-2. Sky has fought for CFA, the XFC, and is currently on the Bellator FC roster. His own fight experience helps him in his daily tasks as the promoter for ABC. Sam Jones is the 2nd of 3 fighters that run the ABC. Sam, the event coordinator for the promotion, is also in the beginning of an exciting MMA career. Sam has a 3-0 amateur record and a 4-1 pro record. He has also fought for Bellator FC. Sam and Sky are also both members of the world famous, American Top Team. Sam’s behind the scenes work is a key component as to why the ABC’s events are such big successes. Last but not least is Aaron Rajman, the match maker and co-owner. Rajman is also a successful young fighter with a stacked resume. He is a 10 time NAGA champion hosting an 8-0 MMA record. A severe leg injury sidelined Aaron for most of 2012 and has thus allowed him to spend more time focusing on setting up the ABC fight cards. His return to the cage is expected in early 2013. These 3 fighters bring together a vast knowledge of what makes MMA great and how to produce a successful promotion.
2013 has big things in store for the American Battle Championships. Already, they have 4 events planned within the first 2 months of the year. They are even branching out into farther areas of Florida. Their next event is on January 21st in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. This will be their biggest event yet in their newest venue, simply known as The Venue. It is shaping up to be a phenomenal event with 27 confirmed fights. Next up is their February 10th event in Tampa, FL in which they are teaming up with www.realcagefighting.com to put on the biggest amateur event that the Tampa Bay area has ever seen. They are in the early stages of setting up an event for February 22nd in New Port Richey, FL. As well as another event on February 18th in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. To say that they keep themselves busy would be a drastic understatement. They are constantly working and strategizing to make sure that the ABC provides the best MMA events possible. They don’t just search Florida for fighters; they reach out to the top amateur fighters all across the nation. Their Feb. 10th Tampa event has fighters coming from as far away as Texas, as well as Alabama and Georgia. By fighters, for fighters is more than a catch phrase being used by some up-start amateur promotion. It is the mission statement being followed by one of Florida’s most exciting Mixed Martial Arts promotions.
