Fortis MMA, Founded by Deron Williams is a new Powerhouse MMA Gym in Dallas, Texas. Head Coach of Fortis MMA is Sayif Saud, Coaching Future UFC or Bellator Champions!! Sayif Saud is one of the most underrated coaches in MMA today and he has the fighters to prove it!!
“The story is, we built this team from the ground up,” Saud said to BJPENN.com. “We didn’t have any fighters who are imported in from other camps or guys that were in the UFC. All these guys have been with me since the beginning. Most of them came to me 1-0 or 2-0. It is really an organic thing. We are a gym where accountability is real thing. Everybody is there, everybody is at practice and because of that, we have put double-digit people in the UFC in the past year or 15 months. I don’t know anybody else who has done that. Not only are they going into the UFC but they are winning. https://www.bjpenn.com/mma-news/exclusive-interviews/exclusive-sayif-saud-and-fortis-mma-are-no-longer-flying-under-the-radar/amp/

“In 2017 when I first opened Fortis, we had no one in the UFC,” said the 38-year-old Saud, who posted a 3-0 mark fighting out of Jackson’s MMA before injuries derailed his career and prompted a shift to coaching. “I had Carlos (Diego Ferreira), but he was on suspension, and I said, ‘By the end of this year, we’re going to have five people in the UFC.’
“By the end of 2017, we had five and then I said, ‘By the end of 2018, we’re going to have 10.’ I said that in January of 2017 and at the end of December 2018, I looked at everyone and said, ‘We now have 10 in the UFC.’” https://www.ufc.com/news/camp-update-fortis-mma
