Combat Fitness amateur MMA athletes, Elmar Umarov (1-0) and Veta Arteaga (2-1), will be attending the MMA Draft Combine at the UFC Fan Expo, July 5th and 6th, in Las Vegas. The MMA Draft provides a platform for up and coming amateurs to showcase their skills to promoters, managers, websites and other databases. This will allow them to promote and market themselves before they even become professionals. It is a great resource for any amateur martial artist and we are excited that these two will be able to have this opportunity.
