#MMA Sports Stock News: Alliance MMA (NASDAQ: $AMMA) Talent Management Firm Presents Impressive Fight Schedule

SuckerPunch Entertainment Continues Mixed Martial Arts Supremacy with Busy Roster and New Signings

 

NEW YORK - May 17, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Alliance MMA, Inc. ("Alliance MMA" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:AMMA), a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) company that brings together leading regional productions to build the next generation of MMA champions, announced today an extensive list of upcoming matchups for SuckerPunch Entertainment clients, as well as the signings of two new talented prospects.

Acquired by Alliance MMA in January of this year, SuckerPunch Entertainment is one of the top fighter management firms in all of MMA, and currently boasts a roster of over 100 fighters, many of whom compete at the highest level of competition in the UFC and other nationally-based promotions.

"The number of high profile bouts in which SuckerPunch athletes have competed, on both the regional and national scene, is undeniably impressive," said Alliance MMA President Robert Haydak. "Brian Butler and Bryan Hamper continue to make their mark in the sport, and by relentlessly applying their topnotch management expertise, are providing clients with the most lucrative opportunities available."

In the month of May, SuckerPunch Entertainment signed two fighters, Featherweight Tucker Lutz (3-1 Pro, 8-0 Amateur) and Heavyweight Chris Birchler (6-2 Pro, 3-0 Amateur.)

"SuckerPunch Entertainment is definitely on a roll," said SuckerPunch Managing Partner Bryan Hamper. "We currently have ten UFC fighters on our roster with scheduled fights, and over ten more athletes fighting in other elite organizations over the coming months. We’ve also inked two special talents in Tucker Lutz and Chris Birchler, both of whom we fully expect in due time will join our existing athletes who are already competing in upper echelon promotions."
