Combate Americas has been cornering the market in combat sports in Mexico and Latino fight fans. Holding events in California and Mexico since the beginning of the year while airing on TV Azteca, ESPN 3 and UFC Fight Pass has helped the promotion see fast growth in a short amount of time. Having aired three events this year it seems they are putting on a show once per month with Combate 13 happening on April 20 from Casino Del Sol in Tucson, Arizona.

Entering new markets and building their presence is something Combate Americas founder and CEO Campbell McLaren is not unfamiliar with having co-created the UFC when it first started. His efforts have boosted the promotion’s numbers since airing in Mexico, even surpassing the UFC according to some recent posts on social media.

Combate Americas President, Alberto Rodriguez is happy to be a part of the promotion's growth since being with them since October of 2016. This is their first time in the state of Arizona and should be some good exposure in a great fight town according to Rodriguez.

We are excited to be bringing our live television series to a new market that has a reputation for being a great fight town filled with passionate fans and decorated combat sports athletes.
— Combate Americas President Alberto Rodriguez
