Because many fighters out of the 270 + id go to the peak of their form and career, there are very few free agents to be signed. Simply because there is a great deal of market competition concentrated around these fighters.
In order to avoid a decline in quantity and quality of fighters, HFC has chosen to kiss the ID restriction good bye.
HFC is now an open organization and will no longer be tied to the upper limit of 270+ ID.
Regardless of that, the fights will be booked fair and square. This step will lead the organization and fighters to a new level ... being ready to take all comers!
