FightMatch has been designed to be as easy to use as possible for fighters, trainers, and fight promoters. However we recognize that there is no way we can expect everyone to just hit the ground running without any assistance. Accordingly, we put together these quick lists for getting started..
Fighters, Sparring Partners, Trainers, or Promoters all need to start with the following
The first thing you need to do is complete our registration form here: Click Here. This is a preliminary registration and does require email authentication. At this point, you will already be able to search for other fighters and fight events but you won't be listed until you complete the next steps (which we require in a reasonable timeframe or we will ban your account).
All users have to complete their fighter profiles here: Click Here. If you aren't sure what to put for a field you are welcome to Contact Us.
- Account Review
After your profile is complete your account will be under review as we need to make sure that you meet all of the requirements and that you have given us a way to validate that you are a fighter, trainer, or promoter.
After you are finally accepted you will start to show in the search results.
The next thing you should do is to tell all the fighters you know about FightMatch.com and get more of them using it to increase its usefulness to everyone.

FightMatch points determine your placement for the search results in your area. Getting more points can be as simple as Inviting a Fighter to join FightMatch.
