Texas based mixed martial arts fight promotion company, Shark Fight Promotions, announced today that Brent Medley has officially stepped down as President and matchmaker for the company.

Medley officially submitted his resignation on Thursday. Although he has relinquished his roles, Medley still holds Shark Fights in high regard and wishes them continued success.

Shark Fight executive Wes Nolen had this to say about Medley’s contributions and departure from the company, “Brent Medley is highly regarded within the industry and within our organization. We recognize and appreciate the substantial role that he has played in the history, development, and success of Shark Fights. Although we are sad to see him go, we wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.”

According to Nolen, Medley’s resignation will not affect the fight organizations plans for expansion in 2011. Nolen stated, “Shark Fights is off to a strong start in 2011 and the team looks forward to continued success in bringing new and exciting events to the mixed martial arts community. We are very excited about the future and to hosting MMA events not only in Texas, but in other states as well.”

The next event, Shark Fights 15, will be the organizations first event outside of Texas. Details will be announced soon.
