In 2012, the first Florida MMA Awards were held at the Miramar Cultural Center in Miramar Florida. The event was a night of celebration and recognition. Over 30 awards were give out to the individuals who make up the MMA community. From Fighters to Promotors to Sponsors almost every aspect of the sport was covered. In 2013, we expect to cover those same categories and even more. There has been a lot of Florida MMA news that hit the national stage and we will give everyone a end of year recap for MMA before the holidays come to play.
In 2013 we recognized the amount of Amateur Fighters who were stepping into the cage to try their luck at Pro-status. The difference in numbers between the Pro's and the amateur fighters for 2013 were off the charts. There were over 850 amateur fighters compared to 127 pro fighters. There were over 90 amateur events throughout Florida, compared to the 14 Pro shows in Florida. With those numbers, we could not ignore the amateur world of MMA so we added a few categories such as : "Best Male Amateur MMA Fighter" and "Best Female Amateur MMA Fighter".
Don't miss this end of the year event. Purchase your ticket early and secure your seat today. We look forward to seeing everyone on November 16th at 4pm for a night of celebration and recognition.
