So on Monday the 2017 IMMAF World Amateur Championships kicks off. This the biggest and best tournament in amateur MMA with 254 athletes from 49 different countries scheduled to compete accross 14 different weight classes (9 male & 5 female). This number is expected to drop slightly with some late pull outs. I've really enjoyed these the past couple of years and this year you can watch the action via the BahrainTV app on IOS & Android. I've got all the details saved on a spreadsheet so (hopefully) the screenshot of all the entrants appears below. Former champions in gold (Click to enlarge): Also, i have made my own seeds for each ranking along with a 'dark horse' for the category. These rankings are not official and are based on a mixture of their records, history fighting for IMMAF, background and any videos that are available. My unofficial rankings (Click to Enlarge): Some of these divisions are rammed and can't wait to watch it over the next week!
