The UFC Fan Expo took place over the July 4 weekend in Las Vegas. One of the featured exhibitions of the 2013 version was the first MMA combine, hosted by Urijah Faber and Phil Davis.
The combine, the brainchild of MMADraft.com, hopes to find the next MMA superstars. The amateur fighters who participated in the event were run through a series of MMA skill tests that allowed the cream of the crop to showcase their talents.
The hope of Faber and Davis is that the combine will allow fans of MMA to become aware of what up-and-coming fighters they need to keep an eye on as those fighters move through the ranks.
Bleacher Report was on hand to talk to Faber and Davis, as well as other UFC fighters and participants at the combine.
