Among the esteemed guests last week at the IMMAF European Open Championships of Amateur MMA, Jason Fraser, President of the Trinidad & Tobago Sambo & Combat Sambo Federation, travelled to witness first hand the inaugural European Open event in Waslall, England.
Mr Fraser came on the invitation of Josip Mrkoci, Secretary-General of the Canadian Combat Alliance, to see first hand exactly what IMMAF competition had to offer the world of Amateur Mixed Martial Arts. In addition, the Trinidad & Tobago delegate took the opportunity to meet with IMMAF heads including President Kerrith Brown, CEO Densign White, plus members of the Board of Directors including IMMAF founder August Wallén, members of staff, and a host of IMMAF members from across the globe.
Mr. Fraser was very pleased with the reception he received from all members and representatives of IMMAF. Having thoroughly enjoyed the competition, he now looks towards igniting the procedures that could see Trinidad & Tobago join the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation in the near future.
Mr. Fraser stated, “We want to be part of IMMAF as it is the best organisation for our developing athletes. They can compete at IMMAF events and get experience, exposure and be given the opportunity to one day be in the UFC.”
