The rescheduled 2021 IMMAF World Championships will be streamed live from Abu Dhabi at immaf.tv from 24 to 29 January 2022.
Hosted by the UAE Jiu-Jitsu and MMA Federation, with backing from the Abu Dhabi Sports Council and in partnership with Palms Sports, IMMAF’s annual flagship tournament is to take place at the Jiu-Jitsu Arena in Zayed Sports City, near UFC Fight Island (Yas Island).
With gold, silver and bronze medals available across 16 male and female weight categories in Junior and Senior divisions, the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation’s nations tournament will play out across up to 4 cages over 6 days.
Four-hundred-and-sixty-seven athletes have applied to compete so far from 39 countries ahead of 23 December deadline for entry. Registered nations include Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, England, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Guyana, India, Iraq, Ireland, Italy, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Norway, Nepal, Poland, Polynesia, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Tajikistan, Trinidad & Tobago, Turkey, Ukraine and USA.

The event will mark IMMAF’s first World Championships in two years, after COVID-19 put a stop to competition in 2020. However, returning medallists and new Rising Stars made their mark in 2021 at the European Championships and World Cup Prague, establishing compelling rivalries expected to play out at a highly competitive tournament in Abu Dhabi.
