MMADraft.com is bringing forth a HUGE opportunity for Michigan’s top AMATEUR fighters to showcase their abilities and possibly gain respect on a wider National level.

The Combine will give the participants a TRUE assessment of where their skill level is at in MMA amongst their peers. The MMA Draft Combine is modeled after other professional sports combines but with an MMA twist. These tryouts are for amateur mixed martial artists between the ages of 16-35 with NO professional bouts.
Testing Stations: There will be 10 stations throughout the day that tests the competitor’s skills and athleticism levels.

In the afternoon there will be a test of MMA Skills (Wrestling, Jiu-Jitsu, standup, striking power).
