Combate Americas, LLC. is the first U.S. Hispanic Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) sports franchise in history, designed to build Latino fighting champions and serve Hispanic fans, one of the world's most avid groups of prize fighting enthusiasts.
The Combate Americas franchise includes award winning reality TV programming; action-packed, world championship live events and mobile programming. Following its first season of reality TV on NBC Universo (formerly mun2), the company won the “Best Variety or Reality Show” at the 29th annual Imagen Awards on August 1, 2014, besting Mark Burnett’s The Voice for the coveted prize. On October 14, 2014, Combate Americas scored the “Best Show or Series Reality/Competition/Game Show” honor at the 2014 Cablefax Awards.
The company's CEO, Campbell McLaren, is universally recognized as the co-founder/co-creator of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). New York Magazine described McLaren as "the marketing genius behind the UFC" and Yahoo! Sports proclaimed that he "knows more about the sport than just about anyone in it today."
With an unprecedented product and a blue-chip ownership and management team, including reality TV pioneers Bunim/Murray Productions and Major League Baseball Advanced Media, Combate Americas is poised to break new ground and bring about a new era in world championship level MMA competition.
