NEW YORK (October 3, 2009)–Rich Chou has been hired by STRIKEFORCE to serve as the world championship mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion’s first-ever official matchmaker.  Chou comes to STRIKEFORCE with 10 years of experience in the MMA business.  During his tenure in the sport, he has functioned in the same capacity with two other organizations and worn a number of other hats including that of competitor and referee. 

“It is an honor to have the opportunity to work for a top organization like STRIKEFORCE,” said Chou, who will be responsible for creating matchups between fighters for STRIKEFORCE’s monthly events that air live on SHOWTIME® as well as for the promotion’s live debut on CBS on Saturday, November 7.  Before the acquisition of Chou, STRIKEFORCE had relied on a committee, headed by CEO Scott Coker, to create its matchups. 

“STRIKEFORCE has done some incredible things over the course of the last few years to emerge as one of the world’s premiere MMA promotions.  They have a deep roster of world class talent so it’s going to be very exciting and a lot of fun to be able to put together highly compelling matchups for their events.”

The 30-year-old Chou graduated from Pepperdine University in 2001 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Business Administration.  During his college years, he began training in the fighting discipline of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. 

Shortly after commencement, Chou relocated to Honolulu, Hawaii with the intention of becoming a professional mixed martial artist.  He went on to compete in numerous grappling tournaments as well as in one professional MMA fight and referee over 100 MMA bouts in Hawaii.

In 2004, Chou was hired by promoter J.D. Penn, the brother of MMA superstar B.J. Penn, to assist with the growth of J.D’s “Rumble on the Rock” series of MMA events and to spearhead all matchmaking efforts for the promotion.  Chou played a similar role with EliteXC between 2007 and 2008.

Chou will relocate from Honolulu, Hawaii to STRIKEFORCE’s headquarters in San Jose, California to assume his new position. 

STRIKEFORCE in March 2009 signed a multi-year agreement with SHOWTIME to stage live MMA events on the premium cable television network.  Last week, STRIKEFORCE announced that it would make its live, primetime debut on CBS with its “Fedor vs. Rogers” mega-fight that it will co-promote with M-1 Global on Saturday, November 7.

STRIKEFORCE ( <> ) is a world-class mixed martial arts cage fight promotion which, on Friday, March 10, 2006, made history with its “Shamrock vs. Gracie” event, the first sanctioned mixed martial arts fight card in California state history.  The star-studded extravaganza, which pitted legendary champion Frank Shamrock against Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Cesar Gracie at San Jose’s HP Pavilion, played host to a sold-out, record crowd of 18,265.  Since 1995, STRIKEFORCE has been the exclusive provider of martial arts programming for ESPN and, after 12 years of success as a leading, world championship kickboxing promotion, the company unveiled its mixed martial arts series with “Shamrock vs. Gracie.”  In May 2008, West Coast Productions, the parent company of STRIKEFORCE, partnered with Silicon Valley Sports & Entertainment (SVS&E), an entity created in 2000 to oversee all business operation aspects of the San Jose Sharks and HP Pavilion at San Jose.

tnwater2.JPGin Bali now without a current picture to prove it available. But wantted to keep tings roling for the few and/or the proud that give time to visit this blog–er website. Here int he land of VoodooMagic, and gotta say that its an intimidating place for any company that cares to make its way forward in international clothing. PowerBrands like Quiksilver, Volcom, Rip Curl, and Billabong seem to dominate here but intheir shadows lies heaps of quality and great looking apparel that could either make or break ambitions. Fashion moves like you wouldnt believe here and the constant influx from visitors around the globe in pursuit inthis industry leads its way to quality comparison. But in this light Fokai takes all as constructuve critcism and we find inspiration in theswe international labels not becasue of what they do as indiviual brands; but of what is made available to the consumer. The consumer is ta good part of the gasoline that makes most struggling labels run–and in our case run strong. Fokai is making some moves these days larger than previously anticipated and as an oath to our loyal customer–to the extended family, We will work to bring you the next level in quality, design, and most imprtantly–label integritty.Thank you endlessly for all your support. INthe words of Fokai indays past–ProgressiveThreadsForAggressiveTimes.
