FIGHTERS SOURCE AMATEUR MIXED MARTIAL ARTS U.S. NATIONALS TO BE THE MAIN EVENT AT THE MMA WORLD EXPO AT THE JAVITS CENTER SATURDAY, JULY 26TH

New York City, July 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NEW YORK, Fighters Source(R), an International Amateur MMA League, announced today that their U.S. National Competition will be the main event of the 5th Annual MMA World Expo at the Javits Center on Saturday, July 26th at 6:00 p.m.

The Fight Card includes athletes from New York City, New Jersey and across the country who are currently competing for a chance to fight at the Fighters Source(R) Nationals in which the victors will advance to represent Team USA at the Amateur MMA World Challenge in London, England.

"This is an exciting time for all these athletes," said Anthony Medina, CEO of Fighters Source(R). "New York City will be the city to determine their fate and whether or not they will have the opportunity to represent the U.S. in the World Challenge."

These 8 bouts will determine the six men and two women who will earn their chance to represent the USA in the World Challenge. This tournament has brought the best male fighters at 135lbs, 145lbs, 155lbs, 170lbs, 185lbs, 205lbs and females fighters at 125lbs, 135lbs from across the county to lay it all out on the line and show why they are the best in their weight class.

This tournament will be commentated by former UFC fighter Seth "Silverback" Petruzelli, and MC'd by combat sports announcer Chris Geraghty.

Tickets are available at http://mmaworldexpo.com/fighterssource/. Ticket prices start at $45. Additional facility fees and taxes may apply. For a sneak peak of the fight visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYWHKub-ff0.

These athletes' journeys as Amateur MMA fighters have been documented for the United Fight Alliance (UFA) Network which airs in 100+ million homes nationally alone, and a combined 130 million homes, nationally and internationally. This is the first time an amateur sports league has been broadcast into homes worldwide.

Fighters Source(R) plans to produce and broadcast amateur Mixed Martial Arts events from around the country, giving fans an opportunity to watch this major step for amateur fighters as they prepare themselves for the pros.

The Fighters Source(R) Mission

Fighters Source(R) is designed to be the "NCAA" of MMA by cultivating the best amateur MMA fighters worldwide.

Fighters Source(R) is focused on developing Mixed Martial Arts as an international sport, from the recreational level to the elite level. As amateur MMA evolves toward being an Olympic sport in 2016, Fighters Source(R) will be at the center of this movement, as both a showcase of future professional talent and the unifying force for the sport.

MMA is no different than any of the combat sports in the Olympics. But to keep it growing, there is a need to support and highlight this grass roots movement of athletics as well as create possibilities for world-class elite athletes. In doing so, Fighters Source(R) will give pro organizations a first look at their future talent.

Becoming an Olympic sport is the ultimate achievement and highest formal recognition possible and Fighters Source(R) will lead this global campaign for Amateur MMA.
