The attorneys have known each other for years. When they first met, Sherrod was working with the North American Allied Fight Series (NAAFS). He is now a highly reputed sports immigration attorney.
In the interview, the attorneys discuss several industry topics, such as:
- The best visa categories for athletes (such as the P-1, O-1, and B-1 visas), and how they differ from each other
- What visa options are available for coaches, trainers, and other critical supporting staff
- Issues that UFC fighters have faced in their immigration processes over the years
- The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the U.S. immigration system (travel restrictions, tightened immigration policies, office closures, etc.)
