Each day, The MMA Corner will provide a recap of results, event announcements, fight match-ups, and injuries/cancellations from throughout the world of MMA.

Cook becomes UFC power player

Garry Cook, formerly in charge of UFC operations in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, will now oversee operations on a global scale as Chief Global Officer of the promotion, making Cook a major power player within the company. Cook’s promotion comes at a price for the company, as now-former Executive Vice President and Managing Director for Asia, Mark Fischer, was released. After the UFC’s debut in Singapore at the start of this year, Fischer noted that the promotion could potentially make future trips to Seoul, Manila, Bangkok, Jakarta, and mainland China, though he made it clear that not all of those trips would be made this year. As one of the most powerful men in the UFC brass, Cook will oversee the promotion’s efforts in reaching those cities and others all around the world.

CWFC institutes new bonus structure

Cage Warriors will certainly look to switch things up when they implement their new bonus structure during tomorrow’s CWFC 70 card. Dubbed the “bounty” structure by Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan, the new system gives fighters incentive to earn finishes by granting fighters $2,000 USD for securing a win by one of ten finishes. The bonuses will be rewarded specifically for any win via a head kick KO, twister, knee bar, heel hook, gogoplata, flying knee KO, Superman punch KO, any knockout achieved in less than 60 seconds, spinning KO or slam KO.

Mulpeter-Bostwick scrapped from CWFC 70

Speaking of CWFC 70, tomorrow’s bill planned on showcasing a welterweight bout between Phillip Mulpeter and Jake Bostwick. Unfortunately, Bostwick was unable to make the welterweight limit of 171. As a result of this, as well as the promotion being unable to line up alternate opponents for both men, Mulpeter and Bostwick have been scrapped from the event.
