For a very long time Florida has been known as a melting pot for some of the best mixed martial artists and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners on the planet. Some of the best teams and some of the best athletes in combat sports call the Sunshine State home. Ironically with all of that talent in Florida,amateur mixed martial arts competition has only been available to athletes for just a couple of years. During this time, as with any state when mma sanctioning becomes available, several promotions have popped up and have come and gone during the short time that mma has been legal in the state.

One of the promotions that has emerged during this time is Breakthrough MMA. BMMA has cemented its place among the elite and has done so in a very short time with the promotion just recently celebrating its 1 year anniversary, and rightfully so because from day one they have produced the quality of shows and and hosted the type of exciting bouts that you would expect to see from a seasoned elite pro promotion not a brand new one.

The promotion held its first show on July 1st of last year. It was held in Daytona Beach, the city the promotion calls home. That night Breakthrough MMA was also responsible for hosting the city's very first amateur event. It was a card that was packed with twelve very exciting match ups, one of which was the state of Florida's very first female amateur mma bout in an exciting contest between Sarah Cook and Jamie Moyle. It was an historic night that started the ball rolling for the promotion. The production of the event was something that you normally do not see out of a promotion especially with their very first show. Since then,they have hosted several more events and their product has steadily improved with not only its production but also with more and more exciting cards each time out.

Their last event was held on June 8th in what many consider the promotion's most exciting show as to date and it was also one of the best amateur cards that the state of Florida has ever seen. From the title bout between local favorite Rick Turner and Alex Nicholson to Mark Kes' 5 second Florida state record KO victory to the bad blood match up between Travis Alexander and Mike Perry to the highly anticipated and exciting 155 title match up between hometown heroes Sean Baker and Chino Rodriguez, the show delivered on every level that a fight fan could hope for out of a promotion.

The production level that you see at Breakthrough MMA events is second to none and is definitely not what you expect out of an amateur promotion, but they have proved time and time again at everyone of their shows why they are considered one of the best promotions in the state. From the elite production to the incredibly exciting bouts that BMMA brings their fans, they have set the bar for Florida amateur mma. They have the #1 promotion in Northern and Central Florida and have steadily improved at each and every show, a trend that if continued, could land them very quickly in the amateur mma #1 spot in the Sunshine State and possibly the southeast.

Their next event will be held in August in Daytona Beach. Fans can expect much of the same and more so of what they are used to out of this promotion, and that is a very well produced show with a card that will be stacked from top to bottom exciting bouts.
