With their unprecedented levels of expertise, the unison behind Fight Time 1’s event is sure to be around for a long time to come.  Jeff Gibson, the man behind Elite Promotions, has been in the industry for quite some time.  He is well known in South Florida for promoting some of the best quality fight cards behind some of the biggest names, like Don King and Tuto Zabala.  Recently, in June 2010, he partnered up with Olympic Gold Medalist Boxer, Howard Davis, Jr.  Not only is Howard world renowned for his fight history in boxing, but also he is highly noted for his current position as the striking coach for one of the best teams in the world, American Top Team in Coconut Creek, FL.  You actually might recognize him from the most recent season of Spike TV’s Ultimate Fighter 11, where he assisted Chuck Liddell in defeating their team opponent, Tito Ortiz.
