US ELITE COMBAT – STRONG CONNECTIONS IN THE FIGHT WORLD
Strong MMA managers will be very well-connected to the major industry players. Managers who have had success representing athletes in other sports are not necessarily going to be the obvious choices. If a particular manager still represents a number of athletes in other sports, an MMA athlete may find the manager’s time and attention is focused on acquiring deals for other clients. While there may be some multi-sport managers who professional fighters should consider in the selection process, it makes sense to focus attention on managers who represent fighters exclusively. US Elite Combat exclusively manages fighters, no other athlete. We know fighters because the founders were combat athletes themselves. We work with UFC, Bellator, Strikeforce, Legacy Fighting Championships, Titan Fighting championships, Rage in the Cage, King of the Cage promotions to name a few.
US ELITE COMBAT – STRONG SPONSORSHIP CONNECTIONS
A fighter’s ability to negotiate with the major promotions is fairly limited. Exclusive Fighter Agreements are one-sided documents as the major promotions have the leverage. Therefore, in choosing MMA representation, a fighter should focus on the depth and breadth of a particular manager’s contacts with potential sponsors. At a minimum, your manager should have well-placed contacts with the major MMA clothing and sports nutrition companies. A professional fighter will need to supplement his or her purse income with consistent sponsorship dollars to make fighting more than a hobby. Leave it up to US Elite Combat to worry about sponsorship dollars; you focus on fighting.
US ELITE COMBAT – STRONG LEGISTICAL MANAGEMENT for TRAINERS/GYM OWNERS
The last thing a trainer, coach or gym owner wants to worry about is finding sponsors, booking hotels, transporting arrangements, marketing appearances etc or even find fights for their fighters. This all is essential for a professional fighter but is not essential for the trainer, coach or gym owner who’s main job is to focus on the fighter’s conditioning. US Elite Combat is a turnkey management company that allows you to do what you do best; prepare your fighter for war!
