Payout Perspective:

It should be interesting to hear from McLaren and what is his vision for this organization.  Combate Americas is another sign of the globalizationof mixed martial arts.  We know that the UFC is making a big push in South America, Latin America and Mexico and McLaren’s organization is also doing the same.
