The International Federation of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) has become this Thursday the latest signatory of the World Anti-Doping Code of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
By virtue of article 23.1.3 of said code, Any organization that has “significant relevance” within the world of Mixed Martial Arts may apply to be a signatory to WADA, which will review said request based on the policy approved by the WADA Executive Committee in September 2020.
“WADA is pleased to welcome the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation to the Clean Sport community,” said WADA President Witold Baka., and then add: “We would like to especially acknowledge the efforts made by the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) to bring this to fruition.”
The aforementioned document combines anti-doping policies, rules and regulations within sports organizations and among public authorities around the world. The UFC, the main company in this discipline, is already regulated by the USADA since June 2015.
