UFC President, Dana White, has written a letter of support to IMMAF Member Presidents that are sending national teams to compete in the 2015 IMMAF World Championships of Amateur MMA at UFC® International Fight Week. The letter reads as below:
Dear Federation President,
UFC is excited that your national team is coming to Las Vegas for the IMMAF World Championships during UFC International Fight Week July 7th-12th.
This is going to be a huge week for the MMA family. UFC Fan Expo will be bigger and better than ever, featuring the finals of the 2015 IMMAF World Championships, along with five other exciting combat sport tournaments and more than 30,000 fans from all over the world coming to celebrate UFC International Fight Week.
UFC is fully committed to supporting the continued development of amateur MMA globally. The IMMAF and your national federation, play a key part of that growth. The sport continues to see explosive growth throughout the world and we need federations to ensure this growth is focused on well-regulated, clean, safe amateur MMA.
While you are focused on your training and preparation, I want to let you know that our team is working hard with the IMMAF to create the best competition environment possible for your athletes.
The IMMAF is receiving more media attention than ever before and the 2015 World Championships will once again be featured on UFC FIGHT PASS.
We have a full week of epic events for you to enjoy, and the week will culminate in UFC 189: Aldo vs McGregor and Lawler vs Macdonald 2, which will be the biggest UFC event in history.
Thank you for your passion and continued commitment to our sport.
See you in Vegas!
