The recent surge in the sport and the international growth and phenomena will allow us the opportunity to grow without having to take all the financial risks associated with an expansion strategy." Comu added, "We will look for one key strategic partner in each foreign country and have many inquires from Australia, Asia, China, Canada, Europe and Middle East."

SUN will offer a full turnkey program to include: transportation, set up of its custom cage, match making and booking of fighters, television, radio and print advertising as well as event management and operations. Licensee will provide event license, insurance and permits.
