25% DISCOUNT OFF CUSTOM MOUTHGUARD SHOP FITTINGS FOR ALL FIGHTERS & GYMS TO REGISTER WITH SAFE MMA BEFORE 15TH MAY

(London.9th May 13) Next month, OMMAC is set to become the 5th promotion to register with UK voluntary medical regulatory body, Safe MMA, in the run up to its September 7th event at the Liverpool Olympia. The promotion’s breaking news deal with LOADED TV, which extends to the end of 2013, will see OMMAC 18 present Safe MMA to an extended television audience.

This comes hot on the heels of Quest Fighting Championships becoming the 4th member promotion, joining founders UCMMA, BAMMA and Cage Warriors.  Last Saturday’s Quest FC event presented UK professional fighters Robbie Olivier, Fabio Ferrari and Jason Coolidge competing under the medical regulatory banner.

OMMAC promoter Chris Zorba commented:

 “I have been in support of Safe MMA from its initiation. However, I wanted to see some of the obvious teething problems solved before joining. The sport needs medical regulation to see it expand in the UK and for it to be recognised as a mainstream sport, but more paramount is the safety of fighters.

“OMMAC is one of the top four UK organisations and I believe SAFE MMA membership will be positive for all the fighters who compete on the show.  I have always taken pride in employing the best referees, doctors and medics on OMMAC shows anyway, like Marc Goddard, Leon Roberts and Doctor Mark Banks who all work for the UFC.

“I’m looking forward to getting the ball rolling early for my September 7th show and having my own input into Safe MMA with my vast experience of combat sports.”

Zorba will be working to make the registration process as smooth as possible for his fight roster, “organising medical and blood testing days for all the Northwest fighters to come down on an appointment basis to Liverpool Olympia. This will not only reduce the cost for the fighter but also make it a lot easier for them if the service is readily accessible and laid on for them.”

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. 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.

Medical approval to fight by Safe MMA is based on results from blood tests for HIV, Hep B and Hep C; and on passing a standardised GP medical test. Fighters will undergo pre- and post-fight medicals on the night, provided by the promotion. All test results will be sent to Safe MMA at 76 Harley Street to be uploaded to a confidential, centralised database. Safe MMA fighters and promotions are committed to observe medically advised suspensions. For more about Safe MMA, go to http://www.safemma.com

PRESS RELEASE: UCMMA PRESENTS ITS SECOND SAFE MMA EVENT TONIGHT

UCMMA PRESENTS ITS SECOND SAFE MMA EVENT

· TONIGHT – 6TH APRIL 2013, LONDON’S TROXY (UK)

Safe MMA is sponsored by:

Impact LPA, Fightworks, Select Group, WildKatz & The Mouthguard Shop

Official Safe MMA T-Shirts available from: www.impactlpa.com

(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.”
