As the sport evolves and the talent pool continues to grow, it is becoming increasingly difficult for skilled amateur fighters to get noticed and to identify what path is the most constructive to reach their goals. Recognizing this, Faber and Davis created MMADraft.com, a platform to help amateurs in the sport get an edge on the competition.

According to Urijah Faber, “Thousands of athletes from diverse backgrounds transition into MMA every year.  To make it in this sport you have to stand out, not only as a skilled athlete but as a marketable brand. At MMA Draft we give amateur fighters the tools to achieve this. We also have an established network of MMA scouts that are constantly on the lookout for standout talent.”

Phil Davis had this to add, “MMADraft.com is definitely the place to be if you’re an up-and-coming amateur martial artist. Not only do we provide amateur fighters with a high-profile marketing platform and forums where they can build a fan base, we give them access to advice from pros that have been where they’re at and know how to get them to the next level.”

One of the most beneficial aspects of MMADraft.com is the exposure it generates for its athletes. Members of the MMA Draft team utilize their resources in the professional world of MMA to give back to the army of young amateur athletes that are forming its future. By sponsoring active A-list professional fighters, utilizing social networks and capitalizing on national media connections, MMA Draft drives attention to the site and its users.

Amateur martial artists of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to create a profile on www.MMADraft.com.  The site is free to join and participating amateur athletes can upload photos and videos, document notable career achievements and more. The MMA Draft database also stores event results from Pankration, Submission Grappling, Wrestling and other sports that may lead to a career in martial arts.

The MMA Draft website also offers a variety of resources to parents, prospects and amateur MMA fans, from educational content to amateur event information.
