Promoting MMA Fights The Right Way



Regional MMA promoters know it takes hard work and commitment to put on an MMA fight card. From contracting fighters and finding venues and selling tickets, to finding local sponsors for events – regional promoters understand all that goes into producing an event!

Authenticity in promos can create excitement and build anticipation for an upcoming fight, while setting realistic expectations amongst viewers.

Social media

Local MMA promotion organizers can use social media to reach a larger audience and make their events more exciting. By joining online communities like Reddit or dedicated combat sports forums, organizers can increase visibility among hard-core fans and increase ticket sales for forthcoming events. Although this requires consistent effort and may require some ongoing maintenance efforts on behalf of organizers, social media promotion can be an effective tool to generate buzz surrounding local fight promotions.

Social media provides another effective method for fighters to promote themselves: they can share training videos and photos via social media as well as share behind-the-scenes footage from daily life in order to foster relationships with followers who can relate directly.

UFC events frequently offer unique experiences for fans and their families, like the best fights, which encourages them to come back again and tell their friends about it. A well-executed promo can capture the personalities of fighters involved while creating interest in a fight, leading to higher ticket and pay-per-view sales.

Print media

Print media may seem obsolete in today’s fast-paced society, yet it still plays an invaluable role. Print’s physicality allows readers to easily hold and read its content; its credibility stems from being tangible compared to digital ads which may quickly fade from memory.

Mma promoters depend on local sponsors to offset the initial expenses associated with hosting an event, including fighter purses, venue fees, insurance costs, production expenses and production expenses. They must also find willing advertisers for posters or in-cage banners.

Mmma fights for charity offer an engaging way to combine charity with mixed martial arts (MMA). Such events attract fans who are willing to pay top dollar just to watch the action unfold; additionally, this event gives fighters a unique platform from which to demonstrate their abilities while supporting a worthy cause.


MMA is a sport that relies heavily on promotional tactics to increase ticket sales and pay-per-view buys. Effective promos can capture audiences, raise excitement levels and build anticipation for an upcoming fight – whether serious or humorous in tone and reflecting each fighter’s individual passion and dedication for MMA.

Local MMA promoters know it takes patience, persistence and thick skin to stay afloat in this industry. Booking big-name stars might change plans at the last minute; weather could ruin an event; state athletic commissions might disapprove of some matches promoted by them; etc.

Focusing on their unique value proposition (UVP) can help them succeed. That could mean promoting fight cards featuring local fighters or featuring historic venues to make events stand out from the competition, or creating engaging content around their UVP – such as behind-the-scenes footage or interviews with fighters.


Radio can be an excellent way of promoting mixed martial arts (MMA) fights. Radio allows fighters to engage with a broad audience while also building excitement about upcoming fights, potentially increasing ticket sales and pay-per-view (PPV) purchases.

Conor McGregor, Chael Sonnen and Ronda Rousey are well-known for their ability to deliver great promos ahead of their fights, which generate more fans at events or watching their fight on pay per view (PPV).

Radio can not only promote fights, but can also showcase fighter profiles and expert analysis of match-ups. Such stories add humanizing touches that create emotional investments in their characters.

For instance, The New York Post published a feature about UFC fighter Court McGee that highlighted her struggle against heroin addiction – this story resonated deeply with their readers despite not having any ties to New York itself.
