SMMAF brings unified MMA rules to Sweden

Smmaf_logo_medium

Today is a huge day for Swedish MMA. SMAAF is the National Swedish MMA Federation - like NSAC in the US - and is the goverment entity which you have to deal with in case you want to arrange a MMA-event on Swedish territory. However, Sweden has been a bit behind considering the rules set for events thus far. The moves which have been forbidden are elbow-strike, up-kicks, and there is a minimum of 90 seconds of rest between rounds. This has now changed, luckily.

From today all these moves have been legalized and the regular 60 seconds of rest between rounds has been instated, which of course is a huge deal. Now, big organizations like UFC have the ability to finally present an event staged in Stockholm, for instance.

Here’s a pdf with all the new changes made in MMA-rules (that is if you can read swedish).
