The age of the super camp in MMA has already happened.
From Jackson’s MMA to American Kickboxing Academy to Cesar Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and others, the best fighters in the world generally flock to some of the biggest camps to prepare for fights.
It appears that the management side of MMA is starting to lean in that direction as well. Three notable managers have teamed up to try and provide a competitive edge in representation in the expanding sport of mixed martial arts.
Suckerpunch Entertainment, formed originally by Brian Butler, has expanded to add two more high profile managers in the MMA industry to form a sort of super agency, combining rosters as well, all under one banner.
In addition to Butler, Suckerpunch Entertainment now includes international MMA manager Shu Hirata and Bryan Hamper and their clients under one roof.
