British MMA Coaches to Compete in Rome, Free Form Fighters Responds Monday 18 May 2015 PDF Print With primetime UFC events drawing audiences from all over the globe the popularity of MMA is growing. Three members of the coaching staff at the MMA Academy in Liverpool have travelled to the Italian capital for one of the biggest tournaments on the calendar. A spokesperson for Free Form Fighters, UK suppliers of MMA equipment, has released a statement regarding the news. This ranking event may be crucial for hopefuls aiming to get enough points in qualifying for the World Championships later in 2015. Black belt competitors therefore have the opportunity to take their career to the next level by performing well in Rome. The MMA Academy has grown in popularity recently as the Ultimate Fighting Championship gains greater media coverage across Britain and other European nations. Jason Tan, their head coach, won silver in his weight class at the English Open and his colleague James Owen also won this coloured medal. Both coaches plan to be involved at the World Championships in Los Angeles and this could mark the progress of British fighters in MMA by being involved in a reputable global event. British fighters such as Michael Bisping have made a real impact overseas and this is likely to inspire more to take up the sport. A spokesperson for Free Form Fighters said: “With primetime UFC events drawing audiences from all over the globe the popularity of MMA is growing. Rivalries are developing and with British and Irish fighters headlining shows held in Europe and America it is not surprising that the MMA Academy in Liverpool is growing in stature as time passes. “At Free Form Fighters we are passionate about MMA and supply some of the best fighting gear around for aspiring professionals in the octagon.
