MakeAFight.com President and CEO Ron Resnick says he created the site in the interest of improving the combat sports. "The business of matchmaking bouts has an old, dirty past that has hurt the fighters and tainted the sport for many years -- now that has all changed."
What MakeAFight.com does is allow promoters to search out and contact the perfect opponents for their shows. "The promoters can register their event on our schedule, search fighters from all over the world by name, location, gender and weight class and then scan through the records looking for the opponent with the right experience level. And then once they find someone suitable, they can negotiate things like weight, purse, travel and booking fees through our private messaging system."
Conversely, fighters, managers, agents and promoters can view the upcoming events schedule to find available fights. By simply clicking on "Propose Fighter" they can then submit a proposal directly to the event's coordinator. And if an event has an opening for an additional fight, they may place a "bid for a slot" on the fight card.
To top if off, once an opponent has been selected, Fight Faxes can be ordered directly from MakeAFight.com, suspension lists can be verified and an extensive list of commission contacts and medicals required can be consulted.
"This is MakeAFight's second anniversary and we've matched a countless number of fights in the United States and internationally," continues Resnick. "I encourage everyone in the business to get registered and start utilizing this game-changing tool of the trade."
MakeAFight.com also provides easy and informative video tutorials for every process.
