You need to provide your medicals (eye, physical, and bloodwork), the license application, documentation of citizenship or alien status, and pay the licensing fee ($10 for amateur MMA and $25 for Professional Boxers and MMA; we do not license amateur boxers). Additionally, the Commission is requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event for all licensees.
One of the required medicals is a Physical exam. Physical examinations must be performed by a MD or DO (examinations by chiropractors, nurse practitioners, and physicians assistants will not be accepted). Another required medical is a dilated eye exam. Dilated eye exams must be performed by an Optometrist or Ophthalmologist. The final required medical is a Blood test that includes the following components: HIV test, hepatitis B (surface antigen) test, and hepatitis C (antibody) test.
All medicals are valid for the present year and expire annually on December 31 at midnight.
For licensing, the Amateur MMA combatant fee is $10, whereas the Professional combatant, cornermen/seconds, and trainer fees are $25. Note: All fighters and cornermen must be licensed NO LATER THAN the end of weigh-ins OR by the end of day preceding your scheduled bout, whichever is first.
