Want to join the FAMILY? #WBFaM

Here is the introduction email I send out to every fighter interested in our Management Company. It’s important to understand how we operate right out of the gate. After 18 years in this sport I have had to learn a LOT of lessons the hard way, but love where we are today, and the future is very very bright:

PROFESSIONALISM in MMA: A fighter who: 1. Has good communication/responsiveness. 2. Is always on time & on weight 3. Conducts themselves in a manner that brings a good name to themselves, their coaches, their gym and their management. 4. Maintains current basic medicals (Physical, Blood-work, Eye-Exam) or is rapid in their acquisition of required medicals, and completion of paperwork(contracts Licensing).

Thank you for your interest in White Buffalo Fight Management. We would love to work with you, communication and professionalism are the keys to both of our success. I was a professional fighter for many years, still coach and co-ordinate training, and corner 30-60 fights a year. I put fighters first.

If you choose to sign on with us we charge 10% of paid purse for any fight I find, and 20% of any sponsorship I bring to the table. You are welcome to find other sponsors as well, just please keep good communication with me, so we never double book. If you prefer to work with us with no contract in place, we will find you fights for a finders fee of 15% of the total paid purse, (we do not offer sponsorships to any non-contracted fighter).

FURTHERMORE, If I book you on a show with a promoter, I consider that a contact I made for you, and respectfully expect you to pay me commission on fights from that promoter while we are working together. Some promoters love to work direct with fighters, primarily to book them cheaper, this is one of the reason purses are dropping. I’m extremely honest, and have complete faith in my reputation should you want to ask around the MMA community, and want to get you the best money and opportunities available. This is my business, and I work exceptionally hard to keep my fighters busy fighting for the most money that I can negotiate.

If I get an offer from a mid-major or major (i.e. WSOF, UFC, RFA, Legacy, Bellator) it will be only delivered to my contracted fighters. Also for obvious reasons, any fighter who signs a written contract with WBFM, is paid up on commission, and has consistent history of professionalism*; will be a higher priority when the best opportunities come along.

Here is the info I need to get started:

1. Full Legal Name (for flying etc):
2. Ring Name:

3. Date of Birth:

3a. Cell Phone #:

4. Weight class(es) willing to fight at?

5. Ready now? Ready when?

13. Would you ever be willing to travel with a manager recommended corner?

14. What Languages do you speak?___________ What languages do you have a basic understanding?

15. Send me a few pics for website, and potential posters/marketing.

16*** Are you interested in PRO BOXING opportunities? I get a LOT of offers, and view them as PAID sparring for my MMA fighters. If interested please detail your Am boxing record/experience, and any pro experience as well.
If you need references, I have them, fighters I have trained with, lived with, bled with, worked with for over 15 years. My final fight was in 2011, and now I’m fully committed to my clients, fighters, friends in the sport I have loved since 1993. I’ve had fighters signed with the UFC, Legacy, Fight Time, Titan, RFA, Cage Warriors, WSOF, and the MFC. I’m proud to say I have booked fights in Ireland, Dubai, Mexico, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Ecuador, Chile, Canada, Australia and Jordon,and expect to add many other countries to this list before I’m done.
