Hip Hop legend MC Hammer entered the MMA world less than three months ago, yet he’s already Turnin’ This Mutha Out. His Alchemist Management team announced Monday evening they have inked another six mixed martial artists to their roster, with controversial middleweight Paulo Filho and trainer Trevor Wittman serving as their most significant additions.
Along with Filho and Wittman, Eric Lawson, Virgil “The Rezdog” Zwicker, Eliot “The Fire” Marshall and Cristiano Marcello were also announced to Alchemist’s ever-expanding squad.
“We’re thrilled to sign this top talent and we’re proud that these great fighters are seeing the value that Alchemist Management can bring to careers both in and out of the cage,” said Hammer.
In addition to their new clients, Alchemist Clothing announced two significant fashion deals as well. Alchemist Clothing will be a proud sponsor of Brendan “The Hybrid” Schaub for Saturday’s “UFC 121: Lesnar vs. Velasquez” extravaganza. Schaub will sport the “Warriors Prayer” T-shirt when he meets Gabriel Gonzaga inside the Honda Center in Southern California.
Alchemist also signed new client Wittman to a signature series shirt deal.
Wittman opened Grudge Training Center in Denver, Colorado during 2009 and is considered one of the top trainers in the sport. He tutors studs such as Schaub, Nate Marquardt, Eliot Marshall, Rashad Evans, George St. Pierre and Shane Carwin, among others.
Along with its six newly-signed clients, the company represents a variety of seasoned MMA fighters who compete in UFC, Strikeforce, and other top MMA organizations. A list of Alchemist fighters can be viewed at www.alchemistmgmt.com.
