Fighters Only, the world’s leading mixed martial arts (MMA) magazine, is proud to announce a record-breaking number of votes have already been lodged for the fifth Fighters Only World MMA Awards via the website www.worldmmaawards.com.
With the voting system closing down at midnight on December 31st 2012, fans are being urged to have their say before it’s too late, and ensure only the most deserving winners walk away from the ceremony with the Fighters Only silver statues on Friday 11th January 2013.
The Fighters Only Awards show returns to The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, after a three-year hiatus, with 22 silver statues destined to go home with the stars of another terrific year in mixed martial arts. From ‘Fight’ and ‘Fighter of the Year’ through to ‘Breakthrough’, ‘Coach’ and ‘Comeback of the Year’, the show will be a reflection of the very best of 2012’s highlight reel action.
This year’s ceremony also sees the introduction of a brand-new award category – and one that is voted for entirely by MMA devotees. The Fans’ Highlight Reel Moment of the Year award is 100% nomination based. No shortlists, no candidates, just an open invitation to those voting to select their personal highlight from the last 12 months; whether it occurred inside or outside the ring.
The incredible success of the 2011 event saw a relative who’s who of MMA take to the red carpet. And the Fighters Only Awards is set to return even bigger and better this year – and you too can be there amongst the fighters. Fan tickets can be bought from www.ticketmaster.com priced at $35 each, whilst VIP tickets are also available direct from Fighters Only. Please enquire directly for more information.
But first you have to vote! The website www.worldmmaawards.com will be taking fans votes for the next two weeks only, whilst in addition to the website fans can also download a free iPhone application, which makes voting even easier and ensures we attract the maximum global response and the most accurate selection of winners.
