The 2024 GAMMA Pan American Championships went to the Semi-Finals yesterday (Saturday 6 July) in Rosario, Argentina, and enters its last day today (Sunday 7 July) with the Finals from 14:00 hrs (UTC -3).

A competitive day of action sees the following top seeded athletes through to the last round: Zoe Nowicki (GAMMA World Champion and Invicta FC signee, USA); Christopher Reyes (GAMMA World Bronze medallist and former Pan American Vice Champion, NCA); Enoc Escoto (GAMMA World Bronze medallist and Central American Champion, NCA) and Samantha Buttery (GAMMA World Bronze medallist, USA).

A first 2024 Pan American MMA Champion has already been determined this morning by walkover, due to the injury suspension of Danny Zea (USA), handing teammate Said Al Hammadi the 83.9kg gold medal.  Al Hammadi accounted well for himself in the Semi-Finals with a definitive first round win by TKO at 1:37.

Two more injury-based Walk Overs were confirmed this morning in the Striking MMA divisions: At 83.9kg Fernando Cardenas (PAN) ceded the gold medal to Ariel Villalba Luque (PAR); and at 65.8kg, home competitor Pablo Privitera took first place, as fellow Argentinian Carlos Visconti withdrew. There is also a change to the Exhibition Bouts from the previously published schedule.

The eventual champions and medallists will be awarded this afternoon during the event’s concluding medals ceremonies.
