Rob Hewitt, CEO of Fighters Only, is pleased to announce that the 13th Annual Fighters Only World MMA Awards will take place on Friday, December 10, 2021, from Worre Studios in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Celebrities, industry executives, personalities, and a who’s who of fighters will take to the red carpet once again for this exclusive VIP invite-only event to celebrate the achievements from the best of our industry.

Worre Studios has the facilities to host a full live event while also providing the opportunity for fans from anywhere around the world to participate in studio and virtually be shoulder to shoulder with the stars in attendance for this year’s awards.

The Fighters Only World Mixed Martial Arts Awards is the industry event for the sport of MMA and celebrates the achievements and performances of the people who make the sport what it is during a twelve-month period between July 2020 and July 2021.

Rob Hewitt: “For the past two years the Covid-19 pandemic has made it extremely difficult, for a variety of different reasons, to put together a live event of any form. However, I am proud to say that it has never stopped us from producing the World MMA Awards ceremony to pay tribute to this great sport of ours.

“Last year saw the awards take place in a TV studio setting with no audience in attendance and I am ecstatic to say that this year we have won our fight and found a solution. We look forward to welcoming our nominees, special guests, and all the stars from our industry back to celebrate in person at the World MMA Awards.

“I also look forward to welcoming the fans back in a very unique and special way. The Worre Studios will allow for MMA fans worldwide to join us virtually in studio too. After all, it is the fans who decide who wins and by giving the ability for those who love MMA from all around the world to be in attendance to watch their winners crowned live, this year’s event will be like no other.”
