MMA Platinum Gloves
MMA Platinum Gloves - Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Event on October 24, 2013 in Hauppauge, New York USA
The MMA Platinum Gloves Fighting Championships (Platinum Gloves) was developed to showcase amateur MMA talent. We are fully sanctioned through the UMMAF (USA MMA KI Federation, visit usammakif.org for info) We run full tournaments with the goal of sending the winners to UMMAF sanctioned Regional and National Tournaments. Tournament and Non-Tournament Fights Our plan is to be the Bellator of amateur MMA. We plan to run 4 weight class tournaments per season plus have non-tournament fights at each event. There will be 12-15 fights per event. For the tournaments, each fighter is ranked based solely on their performance in the cage, earning more points for a knockout or submission than a decision win. Top ranked fighters may qualify for the UMMAF regional tournament (all expenses paid). Fighters who win the regionals may qualify for the World Championships. The 2014 World Championships will be held in Las Vegas.
