Attention Unsigned MMA Fighters: Enter the ‘Proving Ground’ and You Could Score a Pro Fight Contract!

Proving Ground CagePotato.com MMA fighter search logo
Heads up, Potato Nation. CagePotato.com is looking for emerging MMA fighters for an online series called “Proving Ground.”

Starting on Monday, July 25th, we’ll be featuring up-and-coming pro fighters on our site, sharing their fight videos and bios. With the help of our readers, we’ll narrow down the entries to a handful of finalists before crowning one winner who we’ll help guide to the biggest fight of their life.

More important details will be announced soon, but the winner will likely be awarded a multi-fight contract with a nationally broadcast MMA promotion. Yes, this is a very big deal.

So, if you’re an unsigned MMA fighter who wants to break out of your local scene and take the first major step in your career, please e-mail ProvingGround@cagepotato.com with the following…

- Your name, e-mail address, and the weight(s) you usually fight at
- A link to your official fight record (preferably on mixedmartialarts.com or Sherdog)
- At least one photo of yourself
- 1-3 video links to your past fights or highlight reels. Note: By submitting videos to this contest, you give us permission to re-post them on CagePotato.com, so please do not send us any videos that contain footage already owned by a third-party.

Applicants must be licensed to fight, and available to compete professionally in the U.S. this September. If you have any questions, throw ‘em in the comments section below or e-mail us. And even if you don’t fight, please help us spread the word by forwarding this post to your fighter buddies or any MMA gyms where you train. Thanks so much!

I'm torn between cutting weight to make185, or adding 10 pounds to get me to 205, have their ever been any fighters at 205 shorter than 5"7"? and are weapons allowed?
fatbellyfrank- July 13, 2011 at 8:48 pm

Bob Villa- July 13, 2011 at 3:12 pm
Right now, I'm a svelte165, but like Mr. danomite, I'm more of a money weight fighter. Also the nude pics thing. Let's do it! CPFC for the win.
RSparrow- July 13, 2011 at 3:03 pm
I'll fight. I have a broken hand at the moment for beating the shit out of a meth head that tried to jump me in downtown Houston. True story, give me 6-8 weeks.
Fried Taco- July 13, 2011 at 2:51 pm
Can anyone help me hack into mixedmartialarts.com? No, not to put fake stats in for me, but to change this to the appropriate response.
intercept440- July 13, 2011 at 2:41 pm

DangadaDang- July 13, 2011 at 2:34 pm
Also, you don't want any of danomite. I once saw him beat some dude up with a starfish...that dude was me.
DangadaDang- July 13, 2011 at 2:33 pm
I would like to throw my name in for official referee...I can send you a couple videos of times I've watched my friends get choked unconscious as proof of my abilities.
J. Spaceman- July 13, 2011 at 2:31 pm
I would participate in CP fights but I have a life and things to take care of. The fight game is about making the right choices of my career. If you knew what I have been going through you all would understand. Peaking for a fight is what makes a fighter unstoppable! Timing is everything in life. This is a rebuild year for me not do or die. The time will come again! #positive
Tai-Pan- July 13, 2011 at 2:29 pm

Rear Naked Poke- July 13, 2011 at 2:00 pm
i would love to see CP fights! even if they are between people that don't train, they should be fun as hell.
I would sign up, but my name gave away my secret grappling move!!
If Rear naked poke done right, not even Eddie Bravo can defend!
