The Global Association of Mixed Martial Arts (GAMMA) has increased by 25 member federations.
The non-profit association, which was established in 2018 in Amsterdam and primarily backed by Asian MMA promotion ONE Championship is now 80 memer federations strong, compared to 55 in 2019.
“During these unprecedented times, where the global health crisis has forced lockdowns in many countries, the cancellation of sporting events, and disruption of athlete training schedules, GAMMA remains focused in its goal of supporting mixed martial arts, particularly the amateur sport, to develop mixed martial arts all across the globe. GAMMA is highly-committed to providing promising mixed martial arts athletes a global platform to showcase their skills and talents,” GAMMA president Alexander Engelhardt said. “We are delighted to announce that we now have the full support of 80 member federations who have joined our cause. We continue to invite other great nations and mixed martial arts athletes from all over the world to join us in showing people the true values and sportsmanship behind our beloved sport.”
GAMMA is a competitor to the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF), who is primarily backed by the UFC. It held its first world championship tournament last year in Singapore.
