The United Kingdom Mixed Martial Arts Federation (UKMMAF) has announced the UK Amateur MMA team for the 2015 IMMAF European Championships of Amateur MMA.

UKMMAF Team Picture

Try-outs had taken place over the past few months and welcomed competitors from all over the UK.

The 2015 IMMAF European Open Championships will take place in Birmingham (UK) from 19th – 22nd November 2015 at the Walsall Sports Centre at the University of Wolverhampton.

The last  two years running has seen the UK team medalled at the IMMAF World Championships of Amateur MMA in Las Vegas (USA). The recent 2015 World Championships saw the UK earn its first gold medal as Josh Ellis titled in the Men’s Lightweight division. Middleweight James Duckett earned silver, while Jake Constantinou scored bronze at Welterweight.

With the European Championships able to permit double entries per weight class, it now opens up opportunities for more competitors on the squad. Additionally, not all of the 2015 World Championships team will be returning for the European event, including most notably IMMAF Lightweight World Champion Josh Ellis, due to injury.

For the first time the UKMMAF will be entering competitors into the Men’s Flyweight, Men’s Heavyweight and Women’s Flyweight categories.

Returning athletes to the UK team are James Duckett (2015 IMMAF World Championships silver medallist), Carl Burton (2014 IMMAF World Championships bronze medallist; 2015 IMMAF World Championships participant), Aidan James and Amy O’Mara (2015 IMMAF World Championships participants). Also re-entering is Ross Gallagher, who was selected to represent the UK for this year’s World Championships but was forcedto withdraw due to injury.
