To: The MMA Community,
This notice is to inform you all that we have officially disassociated ourselves and parted ways with Alan Fenandes, AIMMAA and GAMMAF as of today onwards.
Going forward, all communication regarding Matrix Fight Night, including future fight cards and matchups, as well as selection of officials, will be discussed and confirmed by myself and Krishna ONLY. Consider all information from sources other than the two of us simply untrue.
We carry on towards our upward trajectory and will see you all again at MFN 12 very soon!
The announcement was met with mixed reactions with a long list of notable Indian MMA fighters commenting on the same.
