Combat Night-2x Winner

Combat Night-2x Winner

Each year the Florida MMA Awards Board Members review a year’s worth of documents to determine which Florida Promotion should be recognized for their efforts through a nomination ballot. Those picked for nominations are based solely on number of events and the impact it has made in the State of Florida specifically. We found that the results were nothing short of amazing people, who are passionate about the growth of the sport in Florida.

Combat Night, a Florida based Mixed Martial Arts promotion that produces both Professional and Amateur MMA events throughout the State of Florida. 

Numbers and statistics don’t lie. Combat Night has been on top of every report submitted to the board. In 2018 Combat Night received two  nominations for Best Pro-Promoter and Best Amateur Promotion.

When the 2018 Florida MMA’s show went live on Feb 23, 2019, combat night won Both awards and was the only promotion  to claim the 2x winner title for the night.

In 2009, Josh Samman ( a UFC & Bellator veteran) began promoting a Mixed Martial Arts event in Tallahassee, Florida, dubbed “Ubersmash,” which featured Samman as the headliner and other local fighters on the bill. When Florida legislation passed that allowed for the creation of amateur MMA sanctioning bodies, Samman and Mitchell Chamale, his business partner, immediately set out to create Combat Night, which has since expanded to Jacksonville, Orlando, and Miami to become the largest MMA organization in the state.

Combat Night is the only Florida promoter to host events in multiple cities throughout the State of Florida. They contracted more fighters for their events in 2019 then any other promoter in the State Of Florida.

At the 2019 Florida MMA Award Show, which takes place on Feb 23, 2020, Combat Night is nominated for two categories. Best Pro Promotion and Best Amateur Promotion. Will they repeat last year’s winning’s? We will see when the results are posted on Feb 24, 2020 on this website.
