About RUF Nation

RUF Nation is a 100% AZ Tribally owned fight promotion company based out of Phoenix, Arizona. RUF Nation currently holds a promoter’s licenses through the AZ State Boxing & MMA Commission and holds multiple Casino Gaming licenses in Arizona and has a Gaming license through the Arizona Department of Gaming as a Premiere Casino Vendor and is looking to increase its range of operations and bring its thousands of fans, reach, brand and services to multiple property locations across the country. Our deep relationships with Gyms, local fighters, UFC Fighters, stars, media, city, state, Tribal Councils and leaders is instrumental in our quest to grow into an international wide organization and bring our product and service offerings to multiple property locations throughout the US.

Event Differentiator

The current industry competition of MMA promotions offer the same copycat product and format, where local talent competes against moderate to poor level local competition in fights that are usually one sided thusly creating a poor entertainment value and subpar product.

RUF Nation events have countered with a National elite level platform that feeds the UFC where only elite level talent from across the country will be accepted to compete. Our elite vs. elite concept will create great entertainment content through highly competitive fights with world-class talent.

Fighters & Fans

The events will also offer top local fighters a chance to fight for consideration to represent their state on future events. This will enable the local fans to watch the fighters and communities being built throughout the year and create a natural interest in MMA organically creating a fan base for each property at large.

Partnerships

It is true that the current MMA environment is becoming over crowed with promotions. The problem is that they all offer the same sub par end product and format.

By creating an elite level environment competing against only elite level talent from across the country and creating a geographically identified stable of fighters, and being an AZ fight promoter who’s close ties with Gyms, local fighters, UFC Fighters, Coaches, city, state, Tribal Councils and Leaders are different from the rest of the market, by using a method proven successful by the most profitable sports leagues.

Because we are AZ owned & operated, because we are easy to work with, because we will have elite level talent only, because our fights will match the best against the best, because thousands will attend to watch it live, because you will profit, we will hit our target and reach the populous of MMA fans in the state of AZ that have been missed by everyone else.

With your support we will turn RUF MMA into the state wide brand that the state fair deserves and will be the home to the only RUF MMA Sports League.
