Michael Malast is an American entrepreneur, sports agent and mixed martial arts (MMA) fight promoter. In 2010 Malast was licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of State Athletic Commission as a promoter of MMA becoming the youngest licensed promoter in the nation at age 26.

In May 2009 he got his start in the sport by creating and launching "MMA Melee - Community of Combat" a social network dedicated to the progression of mixed martial arts. MMA Melee is a free tool that focuses on building a solid foundation for its professional and amateur athletes. MMA Melee - Community of Combat™ website books bouts/jobs for athletes and industry personnel. Each month MMA Melee "Classifieds" section publishes over 100 open fight card spots around the nation. The website hosts over 20,000 fitness, exercise, training, self defense and fight videos.

Department of State Licensed by PA Athletic Commission – Promoter

MMA Melee, INC. sponsors a professional and amateur fight team. The franchise holds a Team Record: 121–7 Win-Rate: 94% of the fighters representing the company. MMA Melee team members have competed in dozens of fight leagues around the world including the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Their endorsement deals have been seen on global networks such as Fox Sports, Spike TV, MTV2, NBCSN, HD Net, Comcast Sports & Pay-per-view.

In August 2009, Mike became manager to Jimy "The Kid" Hettes. Hettes was the first fighter sponsored by MMA Melee. Hettes was originally expected to make his UFC debut in December 2010 as part of The Ultimate Fighter: Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck Finale card; Hettes was forced to turn down that contract Malast fielded for him due to prior engagements with another promotion that expired in 6 days. That compelled Mike to file for a Promoters license through the Department of State. Upon being issued his license Malast established Martial Arts Super Sport - MASS Production, LLC developing his own MMA promotion that would grant him the authority to release fighters under contract with him to the UFC at anytime.
