    What the hell have they been upto for the past 3-2 years respectively ?

    We have all seen the corruption to which Cage Warriors and its fighters where subjected to by the SMMAF which lead me to take a look at this bunch in general because they are just that, a bunch all leading back to the same tree.

    I posted this on Facebook so lets begin with this question:

    IMMAF = April 2012

    The current board is an interim board put in place to govern the IMMAF until the first general assembly; it is comprised of the following members:

    August Wallén (president)
    Bertrand Amoussou
    Carl Otto Knudsen
    Tom Madsen
    Robbie Olivier
    George Sallfeldt

    IMMAF August 2014

    Bertrand Amoussou (President)
    George Sallfeldt
    Robbie Olivier
    Carl Otto Knudsen
    Tom Madsen
    August Wallén
    Frank Babcock

    838 days ago exactly I recieved this responce from the IMMAF when I questioned the significant number of Shooter affiliates on the board.

    "As for your questions you are right to notice that most of them are
    affiliated with the same team. The reason for this is practical and in
    no way a requirement. The IMMAF was initially the vision of August
    Wallén and as the organization took shape he needed people who could be
    trusted and could carry out operational tasks as well as people that
    could get together in person. This is a non-profit organization and all
    the costs so far such as travel expenses have come out of private means
    from people who simply love the sport and believe in the need for an
    international federation. It would have been great to have a board with
    representatives from all over the world but it was just not feasible
    starting out. Hence the current board is temporary and will be extended
    and then replaced as more members come into the IMMAF. The goal
    ultimately is to have a wide global representation in the board that
    reflects the international MMA scene. In a year or so the board will
    also be less operational and more strategic as more volunteers and
    hopefully also staff come onboard the organization."


    Ill be back with answers for yall asap.

    They probably think I am going to drop it but this is going through to a satisfactory conclusion. (thats my satisfaction not theirs)

    I am giving the IMMAF time to respond as I know they are not full time but there are several issues I will need to address.

    They have abused the trust I awarded them a few years ago when I hung up my keyboard and thus I must know return with my bleach and my mop to clean this shit up.

    It's been two years since you hung up your keyboard?

    quite surprised this thread hasn't had more attention tbh. Bean threads usually do great numbers.

    What can be said that has not already been said?

    UCMMA appear to have jumped the shark a while back.

    It has been over a month and still no response.

    Here is our email exchange.

    Email: (1) 4/08/2014
    Would you mind giving me an update on a few things regarding the IMMAF .

    When we originally spoke the board was referred to as "interim" on your website and in our correspondence as" temporary" pending the first general meeting during which a vote would take place to replace the incumbent board with one more globally represented.

    Did this meeting ever take place?

    If so who was present and may I please see a copy of the minutes?

    If not was there are reason for not having it and including any of the 30+ nation members in a vote as described previously (and currently on the website)?

    I ask this as despite a reshuffle of seats the board is the same.

    Many thanks in advance I look forward to hearing from you.

    Email: (2) 18/08/2014

    2 Weeks and no reply?

    Have I asked something that you cannot answer?

    Email: (3) 19/08/2014 Response

    I wont post their exact email without permission but it was a justification for the late response and commitment to respond.


    I then emailed back offering to phone (they asked me to phone them previously in preference to email) , This was ignored and a further reminder has since been ignored.

    What can be said of an organization that promises honesty, transparency and democracy but delivers what appears to be corruption before they have even really got off the ground and then hide from questions that call them on their bullshit.

    Are these the people to rule MMA globally? to get MMA into the Olympics?

    Boys club , lining pockets, helping mates, preventing anybody legitimate gaining momentum would be a more educated evaluation perhaps.
