Why do I need this bond?
The purpose of a Wisconsin boxing or mixed martial arts professional club or promoter license surety bond is to secure payment of fees or costs that relate to the issuance of a license under section 440.035 of the Wisconsin Statutes.
If the principal (MMA/boxing promoter) fails to comply with the terms of the bond agreement and the laws of Wisconsin and the combat sports promotion industry, a claim can be filed against the bond. If the claim is validated, the surety will cover all financial losses suffered by the state and general public up to the full $10,000 penal sum of the bond. The promoter is then responsible for reimbursing the surety.
