IMMAF President Kerrith Brown said:
“It’s been a challenging year for participants of MMA globally in the face of the pandemic. This years’ Awards pays tribute to the commitment and passion of our athletes, coaches and National Federations who have achieved against the odds in progressing the sport despite the closure of gyms and stopping of competitions throughout the period. Although not every national team could attend the three Championships that IMMAF achieved in 2020, new talent emerged while returning athletes showed an increase in their skill level and competitiveness. This is a credit to their tenacity and to the support given by their coaches and federations. We look forward to reuniting with the IMMAF family and celebrating their tremendous achievements at IMMAF’s first in-person Awards in two years.”
