Good quality Diet is the first step, then think about supplements.
As for creatine I find any brand of Creatine mono to do the job. Its really cheap too.

Size isn't necessarily an advantage when it comes to MMA, keep that in mind. I take Creapure, Krill Oil, Super Multivitamins, L-Glutamine, ZMA and Recovery XS.
I would definately suggest Creapure(Creatine) and L-Glutamine for gaining muscle. ZMA (Zinc and Magnesium supp) boosts testosterone levels and promotes better sleep thus effeciently increasing muscle repair so I would get some of them too.
Other than that just make sure you're getting your protein intake right... 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per lb of body weight. Tuna, chicken, egg whites, protein shakes. Make sure you get enough or you'll never grow.

what is your current training plan? unless it's pretty extensive then there is no need for supplements, are you doing resistance training or just MMA? if it's just MMA then creatine etc are going to be no help in you adding muscle
