    Legend to be televised in America

    on Pay-Per-View on Friday, January 28
    Legend building MMA superstars in martial arts birthplace


    Having established itself as the premier MMA promotion dedicated to the brightest talent in the Asia-Pacific region, Hong Kong-based Legend continues to take the lead in developing rising stars from the birthplace of martial arts – China.

    Next month, Legend 4 will become the first-ever Chinese MMA promotion to be broadcast across the United States, with the show available on Pay-Per-View on Friday, January 28, starting at 8pm EST. Among the nine scheduled fights are four which feature Chinese fighters, including the Legend debut of top Chinese prospect Wang Sai.

    Wang, 24, had a prolific Sanda career before making the transition to MMA in 2009, and trains alongside UFC fighter Zhang Tiequan at China Top Team. Now one of China’s most promising fighters, Wang’s aggressive and exciting style will see him meet New Zealand’s Rod MacSwain, also 24, at Legend 4 to be held in Hong Kong on January 27.

    Says Legend co-founder Michael Haskamp: “Wang’s level of natural talent, athletic ability and physical strength are rare not just in MMA fighters, but in professional athletes in general. There’s a real will to win there and an upside that I’m excited to see at Legend 4.”

    Chinese athletes are an integral part of Legend – Legends 1-3 featured eight Chinese fighters, including Zhang, who defeated New Zealander Daniel Digby at Legend 2 – his last fight prior to signing with the UFC. A pioneer for Chinese fighters in the United States, Zhang made his WEC debut in September, submitting Pablo Garza at WEC 51, before ending his undefeated streak at 12, losing to Danny Downes in a unanimous decision at WEC 53.

    “Martial arts is a big part of Chinese culture, and one of the most exciting parts of our jobs is scouting the best MMA fighters from across China and bringing them to Legend,” Legend co-founder Chris Pollak says. “For US-based MMA fans, Legend really brings something new and different to the table, a brand of MMA you’re not going to see anywhere else so I encourage everyone to tune in on January 28.”

    Legend 4 will see Australia’s Adrian Pang defend his Legend Lightweight Title against South Korea’s Nam Yui Chul – recently ranked 4th on Bloody Elbow’s World Lightweight Scouting Report – in a rematch of the Legend 1 main event.

    Legend clips, images, news and background are all at www.legendfc.com. Legend 4 will be broadcast in the United States on PPV; Hong Kong, Singapore and Indonesia on KIX; and in China on digital sports channel Power Sports Network.

    Wang should be at least up to par if he trains with Zhang. He has bjj skills (not sure what rank he holds) and hes a mongolian wrestling champ


    if this holds its weight, he promises to be an exciting fighter.

    "Wang’s level of natural talent, athletic ability and physical strength are rare not just in MMA fighters, but in professional athletes in general."
    For whoso comes amongst many shall one day find that no one man is by so far the mightiest of all.

    So Tiequan Zhang did well this weekend... the wolf is back, i guess... it was disappointing to see him lose to Downes last fight... He came out with crisp fast boxing and finished it quick with some grappling... it was fresh... 45 second fiight... tight guillotine... im glad the UFC has feathers and bantam now... i`d like to see a 125 division aswell... and the heavyweight division split in at least two, 205 - 230, 230 - 265 or something...heavyweight and super heavyweight... and to be honest i think their should be a cruiserweight too... i guess if they could afford it they`d have 8 pound divisions like boxing... anyways, rant... good to see the mongolian wolf back on his feet...

    I thought it was amusing that UFC put the fight on facebook

    The article I posted on the Zhang Tie Quan - Chinese Fighter in MMA said "The Chinese fight fan market is also untapped and a big reason why UFC put Zhang's fight on Facebook."

    "Facebook is blocked in China and not widely used by Chinese."

    Peter Chernin Purchases Stake in Hong Kong’s Legend Fighting Championship
    By Andy Fixmer - Jul 13, 2011 7:30 AM PT

    Peter Chernin, News Corp.’s former chief operating officer, is investing in the Hong Kong-based mixed martial arts promoter Legend Fighting Championship.

    CA Media LP, the Asian division of Chernin Group, and Diamond Ridge Ventures LLC are making the investment, the companies said in an e-mailed statement. Terms weren’t provided.

    Legend will vie for fans with Ultimate Fighting Championship and World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. (WWE), which also hold events in Asia. WWE and UFC are weighing whether to start their own U.S. TV channels. Their matches draw some of the biggest audiences on cable TV and pay-per-view.

    “We are committed to helping Legend develop its high- quality MMA offering into the leading and most exciting martial arts franchise coming out of Asia, the original home of martial arts, and onto the world stage,” Chernin said in the release.

    Founded in 2009, Legend will host its fifth championship on July 16 at Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd. (MPEL)’s City of Dreams casino in Macau. The event, with tickets priced as high as HK $1,280 ($164), will feature events with welterweight champion Rod MacSwain of New Zealand and Chinese title holder Yao Honggang. Bouts are carried on television networks including Kix, owned by Haim Saban and Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. (LGF)

    Legend, co-founded by managing directors Michael Haskamp and Chris Pollak, marks Chernin’s first Asian investment. CA Media Chief Executive Officer Paul Aiello, former CEO of News Corp.’s Star TV service, and Josh Swartz, managing director of Newport Beach, California-based Diamond Ridge, are joining Legend’s board, the companies said.

    Chernin, 60, founded Chernin Entertainment and Chernin Group, both based in Santa Monica, California, after leaving News Corp. in July 2009. Chernin Entertainment makes TV shows and films, while the Chernin Group manages, operates and invests in media, entertainment and technology companies.

    Hong Kong-based CA Media in November was created to oversee investments in India, China and other parts of Asia. Diamond Ridge Ventures is a music, consulting and sports management company.
    WWE needs to start gyms like UFC.
