The International Mixed Martial Arts Federation has launched two new athletes’ records pages this year at immaf.org:
The searchable Athletes’ Database features 2200 IMMAF athletes across Senior, Junior and Youth categories, and lists the IMMAF accolades of all medallists. For each Event, the full brackets have been published for all senior and junior tournaments, complete with clickable W (win)/ L (loss) buttons to navigate through to bout information.
Meanwhile, the IMMAF Alumni pages document the IMMAF veterans (by nation) who have moved on into the professional game, as the number of rising stars on IMMAF’s international competition platform continues to grow.
Commenting on the Athletes’ Database, IMMAF’s new Chief Technology Officer Mikhail Mazur, who has spearheaded the project said:
“I’m really pleased about the official launch of our own IMMAF database. This is the only official source of truth when it comes to IMMAF events. No other online database will be as accurate or as complete as ours with regards to athletes’ IMMAF records. This is something that has been long overdue and I’m glad that I can contribute to IMMAF’s development in improving the accessibility of our tournament data. Athletes will be able to share their profiles to showcase their status, while coaches can study future opponents’ records here.
“We will be updating the database with each subsequent event. To date, it boasts over 2200 athletes with information about every medal won under the auspices of IMMAF, and for Junior and Senior events, information about every single bracket and bout.
IMMAF’s Membership and Talent Development consultant Jorden Curran, who is behind the Alumni pages and their continuous development, said:
“The IMMAF Alumni section of immaf.org highlights and showcase athletes who have graduated from the IMMAF platform to enter the upper tiers of professional MMA, enabling fans, media and matchmakers alike to discover more information about the sport’s exciting up and comers. Listed by nationality, the profiles detail the accolades of top standouts who have competed at the premier level of amateur MMA, plus their professional career highlights to date, and of course, where they are now. We have begun by logging all IMMAF/WMMAA alumni who have to date progressed to compete under the banner of IMMAF’s primary sponsor, the UFC, with many more profiles set to follow for contenders we’ve seen in action with promotions such as Bellator, BRAVE, Cage Warriors, Invicta and more.”
IMMAF President Kerrith Brown said:
“I am proud of these developments to immaf.org that make IMMAF competitions more accessible to industry stakeholders, media and fans and better promote IMMAF’s athletes, as the talent level continues to rise exponentially. These projects, alongside the relaunch of our online streaming platform immaf.tv and its forthcoming integration with live tournament data, further our goal of creating a seamless, holistic and more enjoyable viewing experience for MMA fans.”
