The United States Mixed Martial Arts Federation (UMMAF) and International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) are doing their best to take over and validate Amateur MMA around the world. Thus far they have exceeded many expectations, with 64 countries (and growing) a part of the international tournament.

Just a few short weeks back the U.S. had their UMMAF finals. A 3 day tournament with the prize of winning gold and representing team U.S.A. on the line. An event that took place at the Evolution Sports Gym in Elizabethton, TN.

The UMMAF gives fighters the opportunity to legitimize themselves as pro ready athletes, all while traveling the world. Fighting the very best the amateur ranks have to offer. Setting up an Olympic style format for determining the best in the world.

Since being created in 2014, the U.S. has done very well at the IMMAF world tournaments. With 7 gold medals. Producing the likes of 2 division Champion Joes “Shorty” Torres, Titan FC’s William Starks, and LFA title contender Brendan Allen. The events are attracting some of the very best talent from around the world.
