…and the Nominees are….

Posted: August 19, 2010 in Marketing, PR

It’s that time again. Fighters Only magazine this month announced its 3rd annual World MMA awards. Devised to celebrate success and achievement within the MMA industry, the World Mixed Martial Arts Awards gives fans across the globe the chance to cast their vote on which athletes, brands, and industry professionals have made the greatest impact on the sport in the last 12 months. Voting will take place across 20 different award categories including Fighter of the Year, Knockout of the Year, and Best Lifestyle Apparel.

The website www.worldmmaawards.com is now open and ready to take nominations from fans. It gives details on the live event, voting processes, and includes photo galleries from last year’s spectacular ceremony.

I love the idea of MMA specific awards, but will be more excited when we start seeing more MMA stars winning awards at key sports programs run by organizations like ESPN.  This will be a huge branding boost for the sport.  I mean, we’re close – GSP did win a SPIKE’s Guy’s Choice award.  It’s a start….
