Combat USA Fighting Championship follows a unique format in MMA and one that has given them the moniker of the "NCAA of MMA". Combat USA takes the top pros within each state in all weight classes and has them fight in a tournament to crown the State Champion. After a championship is determined the titleholders fight the State Champions in the neighboring state for the Regional Title. Finally, the Regional Champions square off to establish one National Champion in each division.
The winners of the night's title fights will meet the State Champions of Wisconsin (Wisconsin event is available on video on demand RIGHT NOW) in July to determine National Champions in FOUR weight divisions.
