I feel like the world of fight sports has been afflicted with some really, really awful press of late. Right now there is just so much negative press out there, a lot of it based around the whole War Machine/Christy Mack story that just won't go away. So I'm happy to see that Romanian kickboxing promotion SuperKombat is actually doing something positive, they are giving back to their community. Two weeks ago there was flooding in Valcea County in Romania. This flooding affected many of the over 400,000 residents there.
Valcea County was the first place where SuperKombat held an event in 2011 and they looked to give back yesterday when staff members and fighters took part in a humanitarian effort to deliver food, drinking water and clothing to those who were affected by the flooding. Residents are still recovering from the floods and it's nice to see a promotion like SuperKombat giving back.
