MFS traces its roots to 1997, when fighter Pat Miletich established one of the early MMA training schools at his Bettendorf, Iowa gym, Ultimate Fitness. The MFS Elite team has produced over 80 television and pay per view level athletes and 14 world champions in various organizations. In The UFC alone, 5 of this system's top students have become world champions in weight classes ranging from lightweight to heavyweight. Miletich himself, was the UFC's first ever lightweight champion (170 and below at the time).
