Joining a sports federation should not be misunderstood as a mere formality to have championships and memberships for athletes. Entering GAMMA means joining an MMA family in which you run together towards ambitious goals.

From the regional race to the international gala, the growth of your athletes is guaranteed, as is the sharing of experience with people known around the world for their achievements.

Our GAMMA champions are often in the corner of their amateurs to assist and support them, and they share a locker room where amateur competitors can learn more about them and their craft.


As the global governing body for amateur MMA, GAMMA works daily to improve the stewardship of the sport while developing it in a healthy, safe, and inclusive manner.

This gives all amateur mixed martial athletes the opportunity to fulfill their dreams and compete on the grandest sporting stage.

GAMMA is leading the drive towards a more competitive, entertaining, and meaningful MMA for athletes and fans.

GAMMA will create more opportunities for people and nations to enjoy MMA while increasing competitiveness at all levels.

This includes the development of exciting and engaging global events, working to attract new and diverse fans, and building long-term commercial and non-commercial partnerships.

GAMMA will continue to make considerable efforts to protect the integrity of the sport and develop initiatives that promote fair play, inclusion, gender equality and more.

GAMMA is headed by its President, Alexander Engelhardt, and based in The Netherlands. GAMMA is a non-profit sport federation with national recognised federations across five continents.
