Have you contacted the local mma gyms in the area?
You could also make a post on Sherdog.net - there seems to be a few guys on there with the 'amatuer fighter' tag next to thier name. There is even a forum just for the fighters.
yes I have done both!
yes, unfortuantly I have the full participation of the gyms who really have fighters, most however have guys who buy tap-out shirts & that makes them tough I suppose.
What is interesting is that we use unified am mma rules - no striking to the head on the ground, many gyms say thier guys
"won't fight without ground n pound"
Yet they buy tickets to watch the fights! It cracks me up!
anyhow we don't have a great many gyms up here to begin with!
& I have most of the fighters who are begginners on the card already!
guys with 6 or more fights don't qualify & go on to bigger shows than we can field!
I did however post on mma jacked, no response yet.
on a side note I could use some small Muay-th. gyms either in nyc syracuse,albany,vt or ct if anyone knows of any!
Not sure if this is quite what you're looking for, but MMA Universe has a database which includes amateur fighters (e.g., one of the guys from where I train at RGA). Mainly UK though, AFAIK.

How about one of bullshido schools and fake fighters too? We got a lot of information here which is unfortunately almost impossible to access (simply too much all over the place)

if we did I would pay to use it, next time I'm at the library I will become a sight supporter, I had to straighten up my pay pal, it got hacked! but it's good now!
but I think a Bullshido database is a great idea, there seems to be more real fighters here anyway!
If I can help in any manner I would gladly share what I have!
