In 2006 New Breed Fighters President & CEO R. Scott Morgan attended a poorly run MMA event at a high school in Voorhees, N.J. After putting on that one show, the operator of the event had exhausted his finances and alienated his partners. Fortunately for the MMA community Mr. Morgan had a vision and proposed to rescue the floundering promotion through a partnership whereby he would promote a sport he loved in an environment fitting of its worthy participants. He wanted to create an opportunity for young athletes to test their skills in the immediate surroundings that would maximize their ability to learn and grow and put them “One Step Closer” to their goals and dreams. He also wanted those many fans of the exploding sport to have a destination where they could go to thoroughly enjoy the beauty and superior entertainment Mixed Martial Arts provides.
In February of 2007 CMTM, LLC, d/b/a; New Breed Fighters was officially and legally formed and Trademarked. While Mr. Morgan fulfilled his promise and became the first promoter to put amateur athletes in a professional Casino environment in Atlantic City, NJ, we are also the first promotion to get amateurs the privilege of fighting on mainstream TV in some 6 million homes nationally and still growing. July 2010 will mark the thirty first and thirty second successful and professional events promoted by New Breed Fighters.
Unfortunately it didn’t take long for Mr. Morgan to realize his vision to promote a sport and its worthy participants was not in coherence with his partner’s vision. His partner’s vision was of self promotion at the expense of our dedicated and hardworking employees. Not to mention the many academies who are striving for recognition and success.
In February 2008 Mr. Morgan bought out his partner and New Breed Fighters and has since developed into the premier MMA experience in the Northeast. All of which could never have happened without the loyal support of the growing MMA community and all those who have become a part of the New Breed Fighter family.
February 2010 saw NBF debut in the professional arena in typical NBF fashion. HDNet’s “Inside MMA” named two of our fights as the best two in the nation for the week. Quite the honor.
It is at this point where we want to take this opportunity and thank everyone who has contributed to the success of New Breed Fighters. Over 400 competitors and hundreds of teams have had the opportunity to nurture their skills and market their schools in our cage and at our events. Over 30 fighters have graduated to the professional ranks. We thank them and all the fans that have come to expect and support the first class experience only found at a New Breed Fighters event.
