Commenting on the appointment was WCMMA Commissioner Dan Severn who said, “I met Bob at the inaugural WCMMA event on September 15th where we had a chance to chat, and I was thoroughly impressed with his work ethic, and his vision for growing the Nation vs. Nation concept. Even more impressive was Bob’s extensive background in the martial arts itself, as our values of "Honor, Respect and Discipline,"
Bob Daigle is a retired martial arts competitor with over three decades of experience. In 1997 he was awarded the KRANE world title by winning almost every tournament in the circuit that year, being crowned with the title when he took 1st place in Caracas, Venezuela. Bob's enthusiasm and passion for the growth of the sport continues to drive him, and he envisions that the World Cup of Mixed Martial Arts will not only be an exciting competition for fans, but should also help to change the lives of young people, and give them the direction that comes along with the values of the organization.
The WCMMA caught up with Bob Daigle who provided us with an interview and more details on what we can expect. To view the interview click WCMMA Caribbean. (http://youtu.be/
