Subject: Sponsorship

Sponsorship Requested By: Jackson MMA’s Team Spartan, Bantam Weight Champion, Brandon “Sequoyah” Sandford

Necessary Endorsements: Fight clothing, gear & accessories, travel expenses (food, supplements, lodging, gas), associated fees (i.e., medicals)

Hello, my name is Brandon “Sequoyah” Sandford and I currently am an Amateur Mixed Martial Artist & fighter with Jackson MMA’s Team Spartan. I have always had an interest in the world of martial arts as far back as I can remember an have always had some type of influence with one regard or another with the arts. I am diligently following my dream with hopes of generating it into a career at some near future. That career would be a professional fighter and in the future to own and operate my own MMA gym and to achieve my college degree in business. Currently I am one semester away from getting my degree. My overall succession in life will be to help improve the lives of others through MMA.

My background consists of extensive training with Jackson MMA since August of 2010 under the Owner/Trainer Quincy Rice. Quincy has a formidable martial arts background and is a 4th Degree black belt under Judo Master, Walter Lamb. Quincy is a former professional MMA fighter with over 20 years of training experience in the combat arts. My training under Mr. Rice has afforded me the opportunity to learn from some very remarkable individuals, as well, that have given to me specialized instruction in different fighting techniques from stand up fighting to ground submissions and defense.

Because of this training and my statistical history of 7-4 in my young career, I feel confident in saying that I am on my way. I train Mon-Sat roughly 6-7 hours a day, this is my job. I also help teach women, children and people of all ages at my gym. MMA is my life passion and I feel that I have a bright MMA future only if I can withstand to sustain the cost. I am working to go pro in roughly in a years’ time. This is why I currently am seeking help from your organization.

My goal is to find a sponsorship that helps provide for items such as fight gear, clothing, weigh-in night costs, etc. In return what I could offer is major lead generation and brand building advertisement for your organization. As well, some companies find sponsorships appealing for a more corporate social responsibility, as it adds to the value of their business.

I can't help you, but "TTT" for a well written fight resume seeking sponsorship. A lot better than the usual "I fight, give me stuff." I would suggest sending this to any clothing company you can think of and local businesses. Perhaps include different 'levels' of sponsorship. People will be more likely to give if they feel they have a choice. And remember, they don't care how good you fight, they want to know how you can help THEM get more customers, interest, etc.

Good luck to you in your journey and I hope you get what you're looking for.

Thanks man, I spent a good portion of yesterday emailing clothing companies. I did incorporate levels of sponsorship, level 1-3. I hope they get back with me. Thanks for the advice!

Cool. Seems like you know what you are doing and got a good head on your shoulders. It's going to take time and effort but if you are persistent, positive and stay focused on your goal, then good things will happen. Phone Post
