As we have stated many times, FightMatch was an idea conceived and built by fighters for fighters. The original idea came from the need to find sparring partners and matchups for our own fight team. It's as simple as that. We had a need and created a technical solution to meet that need which helps us to meet our goals as fighters and trainers.
