Like a few others have said they probably just take in champs at top regional promotions. Stuff like RFA, Jungle Fight, and others.

To be honest I don't think they have any real scouting program so you basically need to be training at a well-known American camp or be successful in another major promotion. It's very hard to be signed from Europe unless you train in US or you're a champion in some bigger local organisation (like Conor McGregor).

Word of mouth, camp talk, regional dominance for shows they respect etc etc etc. If you're really good, they'll send Sean Shelby out to one of your fights.

I don't think anyone really calls the UFC beside maybe if you're a name as big a Fedor but I guess they have scouts and probably it's also part of Joe Silva's job
