(London.6th April 13) Tonight UCMMA holds its second event under the governance of UK MMA medical body, Safe MMA. UCMMA 33 takes place at London’s Troxy (UK) with all competing professional MMA fighters medically cleared by Safe MMA.

The event also showcases one Amateur (Semi-Professional) MMA bout between Jakub Wegrzeck and Pat Hill and two K1 fights, which do not fall under Safe MMA.

Unfortunately, Scott Saward, who was medically cleared to fight, is no longer competing tonight as his opponent did not undergo his Safe MMA tests in time for the event.

Promoter, Dave O’Donnell, said:

“Yes, it’s hard work. The fighters need to get themselves in order and not leave it to the last minute. Again, a massive achievement for Safe MMA. A lot of hard work, sweat and tears goes into it but in the long run it’s better for the sport; and that’s all we can do is to do our best.”

About Safe MMA

SAFE MMA is a not for profit organisation established to improve the safety of MMA fighters in the UK. Under the Safe MMA banner, the medical centre provides a secure, centralised and confidential database for fighter medical records; and coordinates affordable, standardised blood and medical tests for all registered fighters. Additionally, SAFE MMA members will have access to advice from leading world experts in sports medicine.

UK promotions Cage Warriors, BAMMA and UCMMA united to help found the project and have agreed that from 1st January 1013 all fighters on their cards must be registered to SAFE MMA and undergo annual medical tests and bi-annual blood tests.  The promotions have agreed only to use fighters that are deemed medically safe to fight under the SAFE MMA (green light) system and not to use fighters that are suspended due to injuries, such as concussion, or who are overdue for blood tests, for example. Additionally, the promotions have pledged to have medical professionals carry out pre- and post-fight tests with all results to be submitted to the confidential medical database at 76 Harley St. Medical data will never be transmitted to anyone but SAFE MMA will be able to give a rapid and all-hours service to inform authorised promotions of who is medically safe to fight and who needs to be rechecked, at the time of enquiry.
