Allen Crowder II
Owner & Operator of NMMAC
I grew up in a gym from a young age and have always been very interested in competitive bodybuilding. Always idolizing Arnold Schwarzenegger and my father, I became very strong in the weight room. From years in the gym, I was very athletic and excelled in high school football, I went all state, all conference, and became defensive player of the year, including being nominated to play in the Shrine Bowl at the end of my senior year. From there I had a full ride scholarship to East Carolina University where I played my first couple of years. Losing passion for the sport, I decided to try competitive bodybuilding. Placing 5th in the open division of the Elite Classic in Greensboro North Carolina. From there I decided I needed to return to school and finish my degree where I was first introduced to MMA. Falling in love with the sport after my first amateur fight! Continuing to move forward onto having an 8-1 record before turning Pro, where I went 9-2 before getting my first fight in the UFC. Continuing to fight for the UFC while I run my own business and trying my best to help kids and adults obtain a state of physical fitness and self defense with the various classes of mixed martial arts I have to offer at my school.
