 “We are excited to provide our continued global support to IMMAF,” Mike Britt, UFC vice-president of government relations and corporate communications said in the release. “IMMAF has done a tremendous job of bridging the gap between amateur MMA organizations throughout the world while providing a universally integrated set of procedures and measures to keep athletes of all levels safe.”

“IMMAF’s renewed partnership with UFC will not only strengthen the federation, but also further advance the mutual goal of increased athlete safety in MMA from the grassroots level,” added  IMMAF CEO Densign White. “This partnership will benefit MMA athletes globally for its reformation of pathways to increase talent and education while offering opportunities to place protective structures against dangers that arise due to lack of regulation. Our alliance remains a game-changer for amateur combat sports and our awareness continues to make a difference on a global scale.”

The IMMAF is the dominant amateur MMA organization with partnerships with 53 national MMA governing bodies. Italy and India joined in late 2014.
