Fighting For Glory and $1 Million in Prize Money
Last Fighter Standing is the explosive new World Championship that combines all fighting styles.
The stakes are high: with $500 000 USD each allocated as prize money for both the men's and women's division in the prestigious Last Fighter Standing World Championship, the scene is set for the world to be shaken awake by the grit and high energy of this new hand-to-hand combat championship.
Last Fighter Standing (LFS) is the first professional fighting competition in the world to award equal purse sizes and opportunities to male and female contenders, recognising the efforts, training and skills needed from both genders to succeed in the arena. The new, carefully-defined rules of LFS draw on the history and complexity of martial arts and how they have evolved across the world.
From the Kung Fu of Shaolin Monks, Jujitsu and Karate from the shores of Japan, Brazilian Jujitsu and the Russian military style combat of SAMBO, through to today's modern Karate, Judo, Boxing, Taekwondo, Kick-Boxing, Muay-Thai and Mixed Martial Arts - LFS welcomes fighters from all of these styles, from single-discipline pugilists to combination fighters. This ups the ante in the global competition as the unique history and training of these fighting cultures could give competitors a secret weapon with which to dominate their rivals.
However, what makes LFS truly unique and compelling for both participants and onlookers is the rules. The 20-second ground rule regulation, for example, is a clear indication that the championship is geared towards high impact, stand-up fighting. This, along with the three two-minute rounds per bout and the expectation of exciting knockouts and ground and pound finishes, guarantees a fast pace with continuous action.
With the spectator in mind, the high-intensity combat action of the tournaments is geared towards entertainment, providing a thrilling and engaging prospect for television viewers and arena spectators alike. Adding to LFS' uniqueness is a hexagonal ring with five ropes. Cameras are mounted on every corner for a 360-degree view that misses none of the action – making this ring the first of its kind.
Last Fighter Standing has been in the making for five years. Hanshi Craig Mayman, co-founder and director of Last Fighter Standing Ltd, was named the “Last Man Standing” in Japan when he was only 17 years old by beating out tough competition in a tournament in which there were no weight divisions, and very few rules applied. Now, many years later, with an impressive record of 72 fights, 69 wins, 2 draws, and 1 loss, Mayman has all the credentials to launch this exceptional, balanced, all-style LFS tournament.
“LFS is the next frontier in fighting competitions and entertainment. We have created a platform for fighters to compete on an equal basis, no matter what their fighting style is. The rules provide our fighters with the opportunity to showcase their stamina, style and cunning. They will also need to be extremely fit, conditioned and durable, as the final knockout rounds will be conducted on one night, one after the other,” says Mayman.
How the LFS tournaments work:
Fighters will enter a series of elimination tournaments to win a place in their respective National Championships. The National LFS Champion will then have a chance to represent his/her country globally in a number of international championships that lead to the Last Fighter Standing World Championship. Here, over six days, 64 countries will compete to establish one male and one female Last Fighter Standing Champion. The World Championship will roll out in 2016.
