Fight promoter Willy Sisca announced the organization’s formation in January and will feature both amateur and professional MMA contests.
UFC welterweight George Sullivan was the first to hit the mats and put on a show for the fans and media in attendance. While Sullivan is obviously under contract with the UFC and will not be fighting for Maverick MMA, he was there in support of his longtime friend Sisca, and spoke with MyMMANews in an exclusive interview to be released later this week.
Maverick MMA headliner Scott Heckman, as well as featured fighters Rick Nuno, Tim Kunkel, also participated in the workouts and participated in pre-fight interviews and face offs.

- After writing for Ultimate MMA magazine and serving as the editor for U.S. Combat Sports, both of which went on hiatus, I decided to venture out on my own and enlist a staff of writers and photographers that could help me achieve my goal of telling stories that would otherwise go untold. We pride ourselves in taking a deeper look into the fighter, and understanding what makes them click.
