Australian amateur MMA is now one of the best in the world
"Australia deserves its rightful place on the MMA world stage, but to ensure our sports future we must first legitimise its presence and then work towards federal recognition as a stand-alone combat sport. This isn’t something that happens overnight, but as a federation we are working hard to making sure this a reality and in doing so, assisting IMMAF in their pursuit for Olympic recognition.
For now, our success will be determined by the success of our members, athletes, coaches, officials and gyms. Together we can change the way our sport is perceived, and in doing so, provide amazing opportunities to all involved".
