Novice MMA NEXT EVENT March 9th!
Novice MMA is a great way to dip your toes into the waters of MMA competition. We look to match up beginner fighters against each other in fair competition. It's conducted in an inter-club gym environment with modified rules:
- Time limit of 2x2 minute rounds.
(If the fight is considered a draw it will go to a 3rd tiebreaker round of 2 minutes)
- Optional use of headgear.
- Standing 8 counts
- No rotational leg locks or intentional knee reaping
- No hammer-fists (fighters must strike with the padded part of the glove).
This competition is intended for fighters early in their careers - NO FIGHTERS WITH AMATEUR MMA EXPERIENCE PERMITTED. If you have had any fight experience in other disciplines eg. Boxing/kickboxing/Muaythai/BJJ please describe in detail on the entry form.
For people interested in an interclub striking match up please be as detailed as possible in the entry form - we will not be taking applications for interclub kickboxing or boxing fights from people who have had amateur experience.
If you would like to compete please fill out your details below and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Please list ALL the following details or your entry will NOT be accepted:
-Walking Weight (we will try to match you as close to your weight as possible) including weighing you the morning of the competition to ensure a fair match up.
We ask that you provide honest details in the spirit of fair competition.
Fighters who are found to be dishonest about their competition experience will have their gym banned from competing in future events.
Weigh ins are from 11AM onwards and fights start at approximately Midday.
