Joe Battaglia "Triple X Cagefighting Promoter"
About "Triple X Cagefighting Promoter" Joe Battaglia
By: FC Fitness & MMA
I started TXC in September of 2008, after witnessing how the typical Michigan
promoters treated the fighter. Not only did I not like what I what I saw, what I was seeing
was not true Martial Arts; it was a ToughMan contest. Too many times, Promoters knew the
outcome of the fights, ahead of time - before they were fought. They would put fighters with
20 pounds of more weight difference against each other, and take drunk fans out of the
stands to fight, resulting in an absolute zoo atmosphere. Promoters would hurt each other
instead of acting like professionals, which hurts the entire industry.
Our plan at TXC was to rise above all of this, and treat everyone exactly how
we wanted to be treated – with respect and professionalism,
while providing our fighters with the best of everything.
AT TXC we spare no expense. We have the best announcer, the best refs,
the best Backhouse in the business, the best doctors, medics, and the best videos and marketing.
TXC has fighter insurance on every show, and our fights are broadcast live on PPV.
Each TXC PPV Event has been viewed in over 15,000 homes live all over the world PER SHOW.
Not just the state or country – the world!
TXC has day-before-show catered weigh-ins.
We supply the fighter with gauze and tape at every show.
We are the only promotion company in the state that has a “Farm System,”
which most TXC Fighters start in. This proves that we will not just put “anyone”
in our shows, and ensures that we have the very best MMA fighters in the state.
If getting to the Pro’s is a part of your career plan, you need to know that TXC has
turned out more Professional Fighters than any other Promotion Company in the state.
TXC is your roadmap to the Pro’s!
TXC has promoted over 20 shows in the past couple years
and has built up a loyal, engaged audience following.
