On today’s episode we are joined by Bryan Deats of Fightforce, an amateur, semi-pro and professional mixed martial arts promotion company.
Bryan began training in martial arts when he was young and practiced mixed martial arts through college. He began coaching fighters and traveling for fight shows, where he was able to observe promoters and learn what to do- and what not to do.
Following college, Bill Fisher wanted to hold an MMA event at the Civic Center and Bryan helped him create the first Fightforce event. They continued to put on events and grow, and eventually Bryan bought the company and has been holding events ever since.
This week on Small Business War Stories, Bryan Deats join us from Bozeman, Montana.
