Beyond the Cage with Lou Neglia of Ring of Combat

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

By: William Holmes

Ring of Combat is one of the most successful and longest running promotions in the United States, regularly putting on shows since 2002. Promoter Lou Neglia has been around combat sports long enough to know the type of work it takes to run a successful promotion, especially considering that he was a former 3x world kickboxing champion, with a career record of 34-2. MMAonline was able to interview Lou, as he discussed a wide variety of topics such as his own fighting history, the UFC, Bellator, famous Ring of Combat alumni, upcoming plans, the history of the regulation of MMA, what makes a successful promotion, what makes a successful champion,boxing, and a wide variety of other topics.

MMAOnline: What made you first get into promoting mixed martial arts?

Lou Neglia: I was a former world kickboxing champion, and when I retired from fighting, I opened up a school, which turned out to be the largest kickboxing school on the east coast. I missed fighting; it was like being at a good party and never knowing when to leave. Rocky Graziano gave me good advice, and said what’s another win to add on your record.
