Ultimate Reno Combat is taking a huge step up.
Takedown Entertainment, a public traded company, as acquired UNC’s past and future fight videos and will invest in getting the promotion to gain more professional fights. Takedown sites the URC commitment to women’s MMA as a major factor in the decision. Takedown also acquired rights to several MMA promotions including Scrap Live out of North Carolina, Fight 2 Win out of Colorado, and Freedom Fights out of Canada.
URC champion Taylor Stratford is set to face Autumn Richardson this weekend in her last match as an amateur (which will be live on GoFightLive.tv), and with the new deal, it won’t be surprising if the 19 year old phenom will stick around Reno a bit longer.
