This may be the worst or best MMA idea ever, there is no in between. For those who love cage fighting just as much as they loving tracking cryptocurrency, we have just the Bitcoin themed promotion for you.
Let’s talk Bitcoin and paying pro fighters exclusively through Bitcoin. What could go wrong?
MMA Promotion Primal FC wants to pay fighters in #Bitcoin. The athletes will get paid in #Cryptocurrency through crypto funded debit-cards, like TenX or directly to their wallets so that the whole process will involve Cryptocurrency. pic.twitter.com/KKWVJ8FBqy

We’re not going to pretend to be cryptocurrency experts, but isn’t paying fighters through cyrpto funded debit cards sound just a little shady? Imagine if a regional MMA promo paid fighters in stock options.
Cryptocurrency may be the future of currency, investments and payments but our cynical side tells us to never trust a MMA fight promoter; like ever. There are an estimated six million Bitcoin users across the globe, so maybe Primal FC is simply thinking about the future of combat sports payouts.
If a MMA promotion named themselves Bitcoin Fights or Peercoin Fighting Championships, and was upfront about possibly being a ginat pyramid scheme? #WouldWatch for the potential promoter vs. fighter beefs.
To there credit looks like Primal FC (most MMA name ever) has so far held only one event in Thailand
