Fighterlink (http://www.fighterlink.com) is preparing to launch its Phase II Premier Package Services to enhance networking and opportunity building for fighters and other key users in the MMA community. When deployed this next phase of development will deliver tools that enable fighters to connect with entities within the MMA community that will help to support their efforts in furthering their career - from grabbing the attention of Promoters, obtaining the services of a quality Manager, expertise of specialized trainers or support from business Sponsors. Fighterlink is poised to deliver all these services and more.
Currently individuals are able to create profiles for free and view information like MMA News and Events in a community forum. With Phase II Users are able to further customize their profiles in order to create the ideal personal marketing package for themselves and will be able to communicate this information directly to other important MMA user groups. Fighterlink leverages the power of other Social Media platforms to enhance each individual's content and exposure that ultimately provides more valuable services.
The key to Fighterlinks success is in focusing on the business-to-business relationships and opportunities it is facilitating and not solely on the fan experience.
"Crazy Tim" Credeur, professional UFC fighter has this to say about Fighterlink, "On many occasions I have gone public about my opinion that fighters from certain areas do not get the recognition they deserve and that [because of that] they might not get the fights they deserve. Some times when you are in an area like Louisiana it's difficult to get the publicity that guys on the east coast or west coast get. It's difficult to get the same exposure. I think that Fighterlink is a way to combat that. The Fighterlink (http://www.fighterlink.com) website gives Fighters the ability to hook up and develop relationships with different managers and opportunities that they may not have in their area and to build a career"
What adds to the appeal of Fighterlink is that it provides valuable services to Fighters regardless of what stage they are in their career or what their status is - professional or amateur.
Luiz Rodrigues, amateur MMA fighter has this to say about Fighterlink, "As an amateur it is hard to find fights. Many of the other sites contain very little information to help fighters advance their careers. Fighterlink (http://www.fighterlink.com) in my opinion is the ultimate networking site for the MMA industry. It helps fighters, managers and promoters learn about each other and connect. I recommend this site for anyone in MMA who is serious about this sport."
Fighterlink's ultimate goal is to build the sport and become an industry enabler for the key members of the MMA community. Phase II is just another step in supporting this effort and one Fighterlink is committed to delivering.
