JASON GENET -  Manager For Colorado Fighters Named in SEC Fraud Complaint


Denver, CO


Colorado MMA Fighters Shane Carwin, Eliot Marshall, Brendan Schaub, Rocky Johnson, Chase Hackett, and Alicia Gumm's Manager Named In Fraud Case


Litigation Release No. 21232 / September 30, 2009
SEC v. Jason M. Genet, Civil Action No. 09-CV-4215 (E.D.N.Y.) (Seybert, J)
SEC Files Fraud Charges Against Jason M. Genet, Former Stock Promoter of China Energy Savings Technology, Inc.

The Securities and Exchange Commission today filed a civil action against Jason M. Genet of Phoenix, Arizona, alleging that Genet participated in an elaborate stock manipulation scheme involving China Energy Savings Technology, Inc., a now-defunct Nevada company with purported operations in China. In its complaint, the Commission alleges that Genet helped China Energy falsely obtain a listing on the Nasdaq National Market System ("NMS") and entered into secret arrangements to give away China Energy stock to people who agreed to purchase China Energy stock in the market, thereby creating the false and misleading impression of bona fide and active investor interest in China Energy. The Complaint alleges that Genet acted in concert with Chiu Wing Chiu, a Chinese national who secretly controlled China Energy. The Commission previously sued Chiu and his associates for their conduct in the China Energy fraud.

Among other things, the Commission's Complaint alleges that Genet played a crucial role in the illegal "pump and dump" manipulation of the common stock of China Energy. According to the Complaint, as part of the manipulation, Genet: (i) helped China Energy falsely obtain a listing on the Nasdaq NMS by helping China Energy to give away shares to hundreds of persons, and thereby created the false and misleading impression that China Energy had a bona fide and active shareholder base; (ii) engaged in unregistered distributions of securities; and (iii) entered into secret arrangements to give away China Energy stock to persons who agreed to purchase China Energy stock in the market, and thereby created the false and misleading impression of active trading and interest in China Energy. In payment for his fraudulent activities, Genet received thousands of shares of China Energy stock, which he later sold into the artificially inflated market, realizing illicit profits in excess of $1.7 million.

The Commission's complaint charges Genet with violating the antifraud and registration provisions of the federal securities laws (Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 thereunder, and Sections 5(a), 5(c), and 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933). The Commission seeks a permanent injunction against Genet prohibiting him from further violations of the securities laws, disgorgement of his ill-gotten gains, civil penalties and a penny stock bar.

The Commission previously filed fraud charges against China Energy, Chiu Wing Chiu, and several of Chiu's associates, seeking permanent injunctions, disgorgement, penalties, and other relief, as well as an order freezing $3.9 million in assets held in four U.S. brokerage accounts by nominees of Chiu. See Lit. Rel. 19933 (Dec. 4, 2006). On March 27, 2009, the court entered final judgments against Chiu, Lai Fun "Stella" Sim, Jun Tang Zhao, Sun Li, and New Solomon Consultants, finding them liable for fraud, and ordering them to pay disgorgement, prejudgment interest, and civil penalties. The court also imposed officer-and-director bars against Chiu, Sim, Zhao, and Li. On July 31, 2009, the court entered a final judgment against the relief defendant nominees of Chiu, ordering that the $3.9 million still held in U.S. brokerage accounts be turned over as proceeds of the fraud.

For additional related actions by the Commission against China Energy, see Rel. 34-53839 (May 19, 2006) (suspending trading in China Energy stock); Rel. 34-54503A (Sept. 26, 2006) (imposing a second trading suspension in China Energy stock); Admin. Proc. 34-54502 (Sept. 26, 2006) (instituting administrative proceedings against China Energy to determine whether to revoke the company's securities); and Admin. Proc. 34-54881 (Dec. 6, 2006) (administrative law judge's order revoking China Energy's stock registration statements).
The Commission would like to acknowledge the assistance afforded by the Nasdaq Stock Market in this matter.

Editor's note: This story is strangely similar to that of former Colorado WFC fight promoter Gene Odice (a.k.a Gino Carlucci), also from Arizona.

Denver, CO
ROF News

While a lot of the hype for the upcoming ROF 36 event is focused on the main event between Vinny Magahales and BIG Mike Nickels, the main trash talking seems to be coming from the "GRUDGE" match on the main card.

Not one to shy from the spotlight or a microphone, Kit Cope was recently asked about his ROF debut against TUF Season 8 veteran Cameron Dollar.

"I can tell you this. I 100% WILL NOT LOSE THIS FIGHT" stated a confident Cope.

"As for the bad blood between me and "Penny Man", it stems from us signed to fight on another card. He pulled off because he was afraid, but then went around telling everyone I was afraid of him. Me afraid of him?
Whatever. How in the world can I lose to faux hawk wearing, Emo-wannabe, excuse for a fighter? I'll tell you what I'm gonna beat him black and blue and the rest of the 30 seconds To Mars too!"

Seemingly unfazed, a calm Cameron Dollar replied; "I could care less what kit Cope thinks. Talking is his thing. It's what he's good at, so him spouting off doesn't mean a thing to me. He should care more about training and less about talking. I am in the best shape of my life. I have had a great camp for this fight and I am entirely focused on beating Cope on December 4th. He can say whatever he wants but he bleeds red just like I do. I am going to prove that to the fans in denver next week."

The Cope-Dollar match is part of the 12 bout ROF 36: DEMOLITION event to be held Friday December 4th in Denver, Colorado. The event features 7 UFC veterans and will be produced live at Denver's Magness Arena.

Denver, Colorado


On Friday, December 4th one of MMA's premiere organizations returns to action with RING OF FIRE 36: DEMOLITION.

The card will feature Seven UFC veterans and is headlined by two fomer stars of SPIKE TV's Ultimate Fighter.

TUF Season 8 finalist Vinny Magalhaes will make his ROF debut when he clashes with TUF Season 3 star and local fan favorite BIG Mike Nickels.

Magalhaes is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and hails from Gracie Humaita in Rio de Janeiro, the school founded by Helio Gracie. He now resides in Las Vegas and trains and teaches out of the Tapout Training Center. Magalhaes is a three time world champion in BJJ, and is a Pan American grappling Champion. On TUF Season 8 he defeated Lance Evans, Jules Bruchez and Krzysztof Soszynski. He then moved on to the finale against Ryan Bader losing by knockout. He is coming off a first round submission victory at CFP in North Carolina in October.

BIG Mike Nickels is a brown belt in Machado Jiu-Jitsu. He is the owner and Instructor of Colorado Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Highlands Ranch, CO. After going 3-1 in fights at ROF, Nickels went on to be part of Ken Shamrock's team on Season 3 of the Ultimate fighter. He lost in his first fight to Matt Hamill by unanimous decision; however, he returned on the undercard for the finale, defeating previously undefeated Wes Combs by rear naked choke in the first round. Nickels then returned to ROF for one fight and scored one of the quickest K.O.'s in the promotions history dropping Carpacio Owens in just under 7 seconds. The victory earned him a match against Stephan Bonnar at UFC 73. Nickels has gone 3-0 in his last 3 fights, most recently defeating UFC veteran David Heath at MFC 22 in Canada. He scored both Fight of The Night a Submission of the night awards in the match. The bout was heralded as one, if not the best fight in MFC history.

Ring Of Fire Summerbrawl MMA Presale Tickets
Broomfield, CO

RING OF FIRE returns August 1st with SUMMERBRAWL!!

The number one MMA event in the region, RING OF FIRE, returns with the 1st Annual SUMMERBRAWL series.

On Saturday, August 1st at the Brromfield Event Center, MMA fans will be treated to a minimum of 12 exciting bouts featuring 3 title matches.

In the Main Event, Colorado's fastest rising star Tyler THUNDER Toner takes on the Brazilian Fabio JUNGLE BOY Serrao for the Ring Of Fire Feather Weight Championship. 
ROF 145 LB Championship 
Tyler Tone vs. Fabio Serrao  

Toner is touted as the next great thing to come out of Ring Of Fire. The promotion has a long history of producing some of the sports biggest names, including most recently Donald Cerrone, Shane Carwin and Eliot Marshall. Toner is also a Strikeforce veteran, but his biggest career win thus far happened just last month in Japan. "Thunder" was able to score a 1st round knockout over Shootboxing legend Kenichi Ogata in one of the biggest upsets in Shootboxing history. Toner is mainly known for his aggressive style, with a strong stand up game honed by mentor Duane BANG Ludwig. Toner will be vacating his ROF Young Guns title to vie for the ROF 145 Championship belt. 

Facing Toner will be Fabio JUNGLE BOY Serrao. Serrao is a Brazilian JiuJitsu Black Belt under the legendary Oswaldo Alves. Originally hailing from Manaus, Brazil, he currently trains with BJJ Black Belt and Vale Tudo fighter Eduardo Mori. He has a 5-1 MMA record with 3 submission victories. Being a student of the game and wanting to improve his skills he has sought out Sakasem THE PUNISHER Kanthawong to polish his Muay Thai. Serrao is a also a NAGA Absolute Grappling Champion.

In the feature bout of the evening the dynamic Fabian THE FREAK Acuna clashes with IFL veteran Jon GUNS Gunderson for the Ring Of Fire Light Weight Championship.

Fabian Acuna vs. Jon Gunderson

Fabian Acuna is one of the most exciting fighters on the ROF roster. He has been called a "155 lb Cung Le". After nearly a six year layoff, "The FREAK" returned to action at ROF 34 and needed less than 3 minutes to dispatch Contender Asia star James Martinez. Born and raised on the tough streets of Santiago, Chile, Acuna is on of three brothers with a fighting spirit. A young Acuna channeled his aggression through traditional martial arts first competing in bare knuckle karate matches. Acuna then tried his hand in kickboxing bouts but found the format too limiting. After debuting MMA in 2001 at ROF 3 and winning by a spinning elbow knockout, the tough Chilean has never looked back. Acuna is now making up for lost time and hopes the ROF belt will spring board him in to the big leagues. 

Facing Acuna for the vacant belt will be Jon GUNS Gunderson. Gunderson is a former member of Ken Shamrock's Nevada Lions in the now defunct IFL. His career high came in challenging Ryan Schultz for the IFL Championship in February of last year. He has the advantage over Acuna in experience with a 18-7 record. Stylistically this should be a barn burner since Gunderson started his career with a base in boxing. He now trains in Las Vegas at Extreme Couture with some of the best fighters in the world. Gunderson is wanting to get back in the limelight and looks for a win at ROF to give him that push. 

The Ring Of Fire SUMMERBRAWL main card is filled with top notch fighters and will also see the return of a few local favorites.

The now vacant 145 Young Guns belt will be up for grabs and Colorado's Brian Wood, and Hawaii's Patrick Kui Gonsalves will have first dibs. The aggressive Justin Salas will face Throwdown Light Weight contender Eddie Pelczynski in a 155 lb contender bout. In a battle of K-1Veterans, Andre Walker faces Swedish fighter Andreas Spang at 185 lbs. And in single bouts former ROF Champion Christian RELENTLESS Allen, and Mike NO EXCUSES Baldwin return to the RING OF FIRE stage.

The preliminary card will feature 2 womens bouts and highlight the top up and coming prospects in the region.

The full fight card will be released next week.

Denver, CO (USA) – King of Champions, the top MMA promotion in Colorado, today announced the complete card for its exciting mixed martial arts (MMA) event, “NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS.” This event features fighters from some of the top fight camps in the Western United States, including Xtreme Couture, Team Quest, and the TapouT Training Center. Headlining the card is WEC fighter Danny Martinez (12-3) taking on local rising star Nick Honstein (5-1) for the King of Champions Bantamweight Championship, and in the co-main event, Alicia Gumm, the wife of UFC veteran Brad Gumm, will battle with Lacey Shuckman in a bout contested at 115 lbs. MMA luminaries scheduled to appear at the event include former UFC Heavyweight Champion/Pride star/current StrikeForce fighter Kevin “The Monster” Randleman, current TUF combatant Santino Defranco, KOC middleweight champion Jesse Taylor, and Team Quest/TUF trainer Heath Sims, as well as others. With 13 fights scheduled, MMA fans are not going to want to miss the action! On Saturday, June 27th, King of Champions brings its “NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS” to Denver’s beautiful Crowne Plaza Event Center, located near Denver International Airport. Tickets can be purchased at A map to the Event Center is also available on the website. A promotional video for “NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS” can be viewed here: 

WEC fighter Danny Martinez is a tough veteran known for finishing his fights. His only career losses have come against tough up-and-comer Adrian Wooley, UFC/WEC/Affliction veteran Mark Hominick, and current WEC shooting star (and Urijah Faber protégé) Joseph Benavidez. He has brought a decisive end to 9 of his 12 opponents, and his losses have come only by decision. He wants to prove that he belongs in the big leagues, but standing in his way is tough local product Nick Honstein, who is determined to topple the challenge provided by Martinez, and show that he is the one that should be climbing the mountain. This is an important fight for both athletes, and will be hotly-contested.

King of Champions prides itself on bringing in some of the best fighters in the United States, and from some of the best camps out there. Three Team Quest fighters are scheduled to appear, as well as a combatant from both the Xtreme Couture and TapouT Training Center fight teams. In short, KOC is determined not to recycle the same local fighters show after show, but is committed to developing the local talent through challenging them. This makes for exciting fights, great experience, and incredible shows for the fans. 

“NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS” will feature several championship bouts, including the aforementioned Martinez-Honstein bout for the bantamweight belt. Also showcased at the event will be title fights for the amateur welterweight and bantamweight titles, as well as ten other exciting bouts. In non-title fights, submission specialists will collide as Spencer Hooker (5-1, five subs) will battle undefeated prospect Eric Smith (2-0, two subs) in an anticipated battle, and Colorado veteran Joe Kelso tackles Team Quest’s Corey Grant. With 13 total MMA fights on the card, King of Champions’ “NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS” is sure to please every kind of fight fan!
