Pat Miletich is one busy man – he runs his camp and has responsibilities with WAMMA, so he has a full plate.  Dream Fighters managed to get an interview with Miletich; he discusses the WAMMA, Affliction and several other topics.  Below are some excerpts: Pat, thanks for taking the time to speak to me at

Pat Miletich: Not a problem at all You are now the Vice-President for Fighter and Promoter Relations for WAMMA. What does that position entail?

Pat Miletich: Good relationships in any business is important and even more important in MMA than most. This is a people business and I get along well with most in MMA very well. My position with WAMMA serves a couple different purposes I guess. I am a conduit between the WAMMA executives and the MMA world. I am also serving an advisory role in regards to many situations that arise as the company grows. What made you want to join such a group as WAMMA?

Pat Miletich: They are made up entirely of very credible people. Dave Szady is a former heavy hitter with the FBI and the CIA and is great at running and directing people. He is also a guy with a reputation for not being intimidated or bribed. This creates a situation that allows fans, fighters, and promoters knowing they can trust this company to do things above board.

Mike Lynch is a former attorney with the Levin law group and has a large amount of knowledge in the boxing and MMA world. He knows the pitfalls that boxing has fallen into and wants to create a positive situation for MMA.

Kay Stephenson is a former head coach in the NFL and knows how pro sports systems should be run. His knowledge is very important to the success of WAMMA, as well as the success of MMA in the mainstream sports world.

Fred Levin is, well, Fred Levin. A very successful attorney from Florida who has handled the careers of guys like Roy Jones. He see’s where the sport of MMA needs help and the purpose WAMMA serves to helping fighters gain recognition and the amount of money they deserve thru fights and endorsement deals.

Bill Goldberg is a guy that has been in the limelight of the NFL, pro wrestling, and now MMA. he has the vision to help athletes in MMA attain the household name recognition and understands the building blocks of how this is truly accomplished. He’s also a really funny bastard! Most importantly though is their passion to see MMA avoid the pitfalls that boxing has had and see the fighters and fans get the fights they all want and deserve.
