So you want to be a f-ing fighter?
Well, now the UFC is making it easier than ever before to apply for a chance to fight in the Octagon. The UFC has teamed up with Jobbi.com to give aspiring young fighters the opportunity to post their profiles, videos, photos and fight history on Jobbi and have that information sent directly to UFC brass for review.
“Together with the UFC, we’ve created a streamlined process that makes it simple for new fighters and UFC management to connect with each other. There is also a social component that makes it easy for general public to get involved. People can talk with fighters, watch videos of applicants, and show their support for their favorite fighters,” said Lawrence Vaughan, co-founder of jobbi.com.
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.
“It is an exciting, ongoing process to determine who will ultimately get their dream job fighting for the UFC,” said Vaughan.
