"Do you want to be a f*ckin' fighter?" ...Well if you do, now there's another way to get in the world's biggest Mixed Martial Arts promotion. Today, the UFC have announced that they are now accepting online fighter applications:
With thousands of fighters applying annually to the UFC for the opportunity to fight in the Octagon, applicants can now post their profiles, videos, photos and their fight history on Jobbi.com. A simple application is then automatically shared directly with UFC management for their review.
...The most popular applicants determined by public support will be featured 24/7 on UFC.com and Jobbi.com. Based on public feedback and UFC management’s evaluation, the next new fighters for UFC will be selected on a recurring basis.
Fighters will be announced as they are hired.
We still have no idea how many guys they will be taking from the list, nor do we know if these profiles will even be checked extensively. But either way, this is something that up-and-comers should really take advantage of. Why? Because the chance to have your profile and fight videos constantly displayed to the millions of people who visit UFC.com is certainly a great way to market yourself
