Be part of the upcoming philanthropic mixed martial arts on the Gold Coast. Watch world-class MMA athletes from around the world compete as the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation brings its three-day, nation-versus-nation tournament to Australia from March 6-8, 2020 with the 2020 IMMAF Oceania Open Championships.
Highlights include watching the Australian National Team go toe-to-toe against international world champions from the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Bahrain amongst talent from across 13 nations. Among the contenders are New Zealand’s World Lightweight Champion and Olympic wrestling hopeful Michelle Montague and world’s number one ranked junior amateur Muhammed Mokaev from England.
Opponents are selected randomly by tournament draw across male and female weight divisions. This means competitors only learn who they will face the night before each bout, raising the stakes for each side.
Support the Australian bushfire crisis appeal
From every three-day ticket sold, which is worth AU$32.74, AU$10 will be donated to support emergency work in wake of the Australian bushfires crisis, in which 10 million hectares of land has been catastrophically destroyed.
The donations will contribute to emergency funds to care for injured wildlife, help restore homes for koalas and other wildlife and support the response, recovery and restoration teams. Buy tickets and donate to the Bushfires Appeal here: https://bit.ly/2Sx7yf4
