Nominations for 2013 MMA and Boxing Awards Reception

2013 MMA and Boxing Awards Reception
Saturday, January 25 at Wild Bill’s
4 pm – 7 pm
Presented by Georgia Fighters

Georgia Fighters has set the date of Saturday, January 25 for the Fifth Annual MMA and Boxing Awards Reception. This is the only awards reception of its kind in the state of Georgia and is used to recognize those that have positively contributed to the sports in the past year.

The reception will take place from 4 pm – 7 pm in the Crown Room of Wild Bill’s prior to Wild Bill’s Fight Night.

Immediately after the Awards Banquet ends, Wild Bill’s Fight Night will begin.

The online voting has increased dramatically through the years for the Georgia Fighters awards. In 2009 we had more than 42,000 online votes, 2010 saw 58,000 votes, 2011 had more than 120,000 votes and 2012 saw more than 135,000 people vote on the awards!

The first thing you must do is NOMINATE people for an award by simply posting their name or gym and the award you’re nominating them for below by making a comment. We will then put ANYONE that is nominated for an award into the ballots and voting will begin on Tuesday, December 17. The deadline to nominate has been set for Sunday, December 15.

There will be two categories for each award – a Fan’s Vote which is voted online and a Critics Pick where we will rely on MMA, kickboxing and boxing insiders to cast their votes.

In order to get started — WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Below is the list of award categories.

PLEASE take a few minutes and add your nominations to the list. Please help us spread the word via facebook and other online outlets, but please note that ONLY nominations on the website will be considered.
