SAFE MMA IS A NOT-FOR-PROFIT MEDICAL PROJECT DEDICATED TO THE SAFETY OF MMA FIGHTERS

Formed in 2012, Safe MMA remains the first and only voluntary medical organisation set up for the protection and safety of the Mixed Martial Arts competitor in the UK & Ireland, with backing across promotions.

Housed at The Centre for Health and Human Performance at 76 Harley Street and ran on a not-for-profit basis, Safe MMA is headed by leading experts from the world of Sport and Exercise Medicine.

Safe MMA addresses the issue of competitor safety practically and in the simplest way possible, with its system of standardised and voluntary, fighter medical clearance.  A Safe MMA passport to compete includes:

  • Confidential database for competitors’ well-being and current medical status
  • Member promotions only using athletes found within the registered database
  • Listed promotions upholding medically advised suspensions
  • Affordable cost: Not-for-Profit medically led project with specially negotiated blood test rates and medical examination rates.
  • Access to sports based medical advice that fighters can trust

Promoters and governing bodies may select one of three standardised Safe MMA passports as a requirement for their competitors: M1, M3 and M5 indicate the set of medical examinations an athlete has passed. These ‘marks’ are stair-cased to allow additional tests to be bolted on by a Safe MMA competitor who moves onto a promotion with more medical clearance requirements.

M1:

  • A yearly medical examination
  • Six-monthly blood tests
  • Pre and post fight medical examinations (at event)

M3:

  • A yearly medical examination
  • Six-monthly blood tests
  • Pre and post fight medical examinations (at event)
  •  Dilated pupil eye-tests
  • One-off MRA of the brain
  • MRI of the brain every 3 years

M5:

  • A yearly medical examination
  • Six-monthly blood tests
  • Pre and post fight medical examinations (at event)
  •  Dilated pupil eye-tests
  • One-off MRA of the brain and neck
  • Yearly MRI of the brain
