136 senior and 69 junior athletes from more than 20 nations have registered to compete in the 2021 IMMAF Senior & Junior MMA World Cup – Prague, which is to run from 8 – 11 September.

Hosted by the Czech Association of MMA (CSMMA) with funding from the Czech Republic’s National Sports Agency, the tournaments are the first in the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation’s MMA World Cup Series. These are designed to offer additional Championships hosting opportunities to cities and National Federations.
Nations participating in the senior tournament include Bahrain, Czech Republic, Estonia, Spain, Italy, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Jorden, Lithuania, Ukraine, Norway, Greece, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, Sweden, and Tajikistan.
Larger teams participating only in the junior tournament include Russia, Kazakhstan, Bulgaria, and Finland.
IMMAF President, Kerrith Brown, said:
“For those nations unable to travel to Russia for the European Championships, this year’s MMA World Cup provides a European platform for returning and upcoming Seniors and Juniors to test themselves ahead of the Worlds. These include Norway, Sweden, Ireland and Ukraine, who all have strong track records at IMMAF Championships and are sending large teams. I would like to thank President Michal Hamrsmid and the CSMMA for creating this opportunity in the beautiful city of Prague and the National Sports Agency for its support.”
