    Default MMA Fight Competition Events, Fire vs PDs?

    Hello all.
    We’re a new (State licensed and legitimate) Mixed Martial Arts Promoter in Chicago area.

    Trying to think up of ways to bring better MMA events to our local fan base. Something that will have a recurring and memorable theme. We may also do events for stand-up only such as muay thai, kick-boxing, etc.

    Most of our staff trains in MAs/MMA, and we’re here to build a real MMA community, not just to make a quick buck on blood and brawl.
    I know that fire and police professionals are required to keep fit and many train in various martial arts styles.

    Do you guys think we can go out to the local Fire Depts in Chicago/suburbs to gage if there is any interest in putting MMA competition teams together?
    We’re thinking of having “Police vs Fire Badge Feud” type of regular (yearly?) event. Ideas welcome.

    To your knowledge, would there be any interest in this venture from Fire(Police) Depts? Whether you live in Chicago or not; we’d love your input.

    Lastly, what is a *go-to* title in a city/town Fire department for this? Special programs director/coordinator, etc? Is there Fitness/Recreation contact in most departments?

    And of course, anyone is welcome to sign up with us if you’d like to fight. We’re building an Amateur fighter database at the moment, found at one of our sites, http://www.illinoismma.com (work in progress). Email with any questions.

    We can also offer pre-comp training (got a 12,000 sq ft school with a large competition cage) if needed. We do things by the book; all according to State sanctioning.
    Please spread the word…. We’ll be offering Fire/Police/Servicemen ticket discounts on all events.

    Looking to host our first event on December 6.... or possibly New Years Eve, depending on the interest.

    Any feedback is much appreciated,

    I wish your organization was in Northern Virginia, I'd be all over that.
