One of MMA’s best gyms is taking a proactive approach to finding the next Ben Askren or Cain Velasquez.
The Coconut Creek, Florida-based gym has announced they are ready to give high-level wrestlers the chance to live for free and train for a year with one of the best gyms in mixed martial arts. A press release distributed earlier today outlined the unique opportunity being made available.
ATT is holding auditions for aspiring MMA fighters with an elite wrestling pedigree ready to make the move to mixed martial arts. Hopefuls are asked to submit an application to the coaching staff at American Top Team, who will then review all the applications and select a group to bring to Florida for a one week try-out. Airfare, hotel and transportation will be provided for those selected.
After the seven days are up, the coaching staff will offer a contract to join the team that includes Thiago Alves, Antonio “Bigfoott” Silva, Hector Lombard and many other elite competitors. The offer includes a complete training regimen with the team of full-time coaches, free housing in close proximity to the ATT facilities, all the gear you need to get started and a weekly food stipend.
