The ‘Iron Army’ - what our team captain Frankie Edgar nicknamed our team.
Born from my personal and coaching relationship between Frankie Edgar and Coach Mark Henry our team quickly grew after ‘Frankie’ won the UFC Title back in 2010.
We always wanted to keep the team small and have a close relationship with our fighters as we have with Frankie.
But some incredible fighters with undeniable talent came on adding so much to our team.
Most notably Corey Andrson winning the Ultimate Fighter in 2014 and Eddie Alvarez becoming the Light Weight UFC Champion.
More recently we have had a huge reinforcement from our brothers from Dagestan in Timur Valiev, Zabit Magomedsharipov, and Ramazan Kuramagomedov. As well as wrestling legend and PFL Champion Lance Palmer and Brazilian superstar Claudia Gadelha among a few other up and coming future champs.
