I was lucky enough to have an interview with Chad Bergmeier recently. Chad is a very successful mma manager and promoter. Chad has been around since 1997 and he has promoted over 120 shows and he manages around 40 fighters, some of which are; John Halverson, who will be fighting Roger Huerta this saturday at UFC 67. Clay French, who recently won the KOTC championship from Mac Danzig, Danzig will be fighting Hayato Sakurai at PRIDE “The Second Coming” on Feb. 24th. Joe Pearson, who recently lost a fight for the WEC featherweight champioship against Urijah Faber. And also Travis Fulton and Joe Jordan, just to name a few.
