It was announced today that UFC fighters Ramsey Nijem and Court McGee have both signed with Paradigm MMA Management for full service representation. Ramsey and Court both fight out of The Pit Elevated training facility in Orem, Utah, under veteran MMA coach John Hackelman.
The signings were announced by Paradigm Management today via official press release.
In 2012, Paradigm MMA Management has added five more UFC fighters to its client roster. The company continues to grow as a strong player in the business of MMA fighter representation after entering the sport 13 months ago.
Here is what Paradigm President and founder Audie Attar had to say about the new signings:
“We are pleased in having the opportunity to work with two great athletes; with the drive, focus and dedication to take their craft to the next level. What’s even more exciting, these two men are great young leaders with high character and integrity. We are very excited to work with these two.”
Ramsey Nijem was a contestant on season 13 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) reality TV show, where he was runner-up after losing to Tony Ferguson in the final. Since that loss he has gone 2-0 in the UFC, picking up back-to-back victories over Danny Downes and C.J. Keith. Ramsey’s next fight will be against Joe Proctor on Dec. 8, at UFC on FOX 5.
Here is what Ramsey Nijem had to say:
“I signed with Paradigm because they bring professionalism to MMA and a new look on the business side of the sport. They bring the same passion and tenacity that I bring to the cage.”
Court McGee won season 11 of The Ultimate Fighter after defeating Kris McCray in the show finale. Since that victory he has gone 2-2 in the promotion picking up notable victories over Ryan Jensen and Dongi Yang. “The Crusher” was recently featured in an ESPN story called “Dead Man Fighting: The Court McGee Story” which gave fans a chance to learn more about the fighter. Court signed with Paradigm just weeks before his last bout with Nick Ring, however the move was not announced to avoid any potential distraction.
Here is what Court McGee had to say:
“I signed with Paradigm Sports Management because I feel like they have a high level of professionalism and because they are willing to negotiate our contractual agreements to my liking. Also I feel Paradigm Sports Management has an ethical approach towards procuring endorsement deals that will help financially secure my families future,”
