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

The Fighters Only World Mixed Martial Arts Awards is the industry event for the sport of MMA and celebrates the achievements & performances of the people who make the sport what it is during the twelve-month period between July 2021 and June 2022.

Rob Hewitt: “The past number of years have been challenging for not only us but the entire events industry. However, despite the difficulties and obstacles, we never stopped staging the World MMA Awards and each year we have regained important elements to bring back fully, what makes our awards show special.

“With that in mind, I am really excited for this year’s event to back to a big stage at a venue that could not be more iconic to Las Vegas than the SAHARA.

“I would also like to thank the fans. The sport is nothing without them and as the years have gone by it is amazing to see their growth, not just in terms of participation in voting, but in how informed and deliberated their decisions have been as to who wins.

“We look forward to welcoming our nominees, special guests, industry peers, and VIPs back to celebrate in person at the 14th Annual Fighters Only World MMA Awards.”
