Re: Mixed Martial Arts Record Keeper
Last week at the annual meeting of the Association of Boxing Commissions (ABC), final preparations were made for the launch of the Official Mixed Martial Arts Registry. As of July 1, 2008, the database of official records and suspensions is up and running!
All state and tribal commissions in the United States, as well as the provincial, city, and tribal commissions in Canada have agreed that Mixed Martial Arts LLC would be the first official record keeper in the sport. All results and suspension information from these commissions will be reported exclusively to Mixed Martial Arts LLC, as detailed below.
Each promoter in Nebraska should register their promotion with Mixed Martial Arts LLC. By registering your event, proposed matches will be sent to my office for consideration. You will be immediately notified if a proposed contestant is on suspension, the length of that suspension, or what type of medical tests need to be completed and verified by the state and tribal commissions.
In order to officially register your event, go to:
Click the Request Promoters Credentials link
This takes you to http://abc.mixedmartialarts.com/?fa=login.Requestcreds
After you have registered with Mixed Martial Arts LLC, you will be provided with details on registering your events, developing your bouts, and the fee structure. This system will be a benefit to you in the future. Since Mixed Martial Arts LLC is the only official mixed martial arts registry, it is imperative for the safety and progress of the sport, that all information is supplied to and received from their database.
During future shows, each contestant will be issued a Mixed Martial Art National identification card and number. Contestants must bring this identification card with them regardless of where they participate across North America.
If you have any questions, please contact my office at 402-471-2009.
