Welsh Date Added To UK Team Tryouts

FOR THE 2015 IMMAF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS OF AMATEUR MMA, LAS VEGAS (USA) – JULY 2015

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 14TH FEBRUARY 2015

The United Kingdom Mixed Martial Arts Federation has added another date to its UK Team Tryouts schedule for the 2015 IMMAF World Championships of Amateur MMA. The competition is set to return for its second year to Las Vegas, Nevada (USA) in the week commencing the 5th July to coincide with the the Fourth Annual UFC International Fight Week.

In response to requests, Sunday 29th March will play host to a Welsh regional Tryouts event at Chris Rees Academy in Wales, pending number of applicants. If you would like to try out for the UK Team in Wales you are urged to apply promptly so that the date can be fully confirmed.

Gym owner, Chris Rees, said:”Personally I think it’s a huge opportunity to show some of the talent that Wales is producing at Amateur level. And it’s a great opportunity for these guys to start on the right road to following in the footsteps of the likes of Brett Johns and Jack Marshman.”

The news follows today’s announcement by IMMAF that the 2014 World Championships of Amateur MMA has secured a home at UFC FIGHT PASS, the UFC’s digital streaming service. IMMAF fights are now available to view on-demand. Watch here: http://www.ufc.tv/category/immaf

The Fight Pass partnership is expected to continue into 2015 raising the platform for Amateurs that compete in IMMAF International competitions.

To apply or for more information, contact info@ukmmaf.org. Please note that team representatives must be prepared to self-fund. The deadline for applications is 14th February 2015.
