(London.9th May 13) Next month, OMMAC is set to become the 5th promotion to register with 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.”
