From first glance, MMA Sports Federation (MMASF) appears to be a typical run-of-the-mill, prospective local amateur MMA promotion. But, with its latest endeavors, the promotion is clearly establishing itself as a noteworthy competitor rivaling its fellow amateur organizations.
MMASF is a Schaumburg, Illinois-based organization that has recruited amateur mixed martial artists to form Team USA and represent not only their local area, but in many instances, their country. Using a national team competition format, MMASF pits its fighters against those from even the furthest reaches of the globe. The organization recently hosted events featuring fight teams from Canada, Ireland, Poland, and Australia – also in the works is a January event accommodating Team Mexico, as well as the return of Team Australia in the spring.
