The EAFL is a nationally competitive team vs team, state vs state MMA organization. Our format is similar to the most successful sports leagues in America. Teams participate in a playoff style tournament to determine a National Champion. Our league is designed to improve the amateur MMA landscape by providing a platform for national level talent to compete against each other and gain national level exposure while providing fans a place to watch the best amateur talent in the country.

At the Elite Amateur Fight League, we are seeking to become the national amateur feeder system for mixed martial arts. The current landscape forces real contenders to participate in events against subpar talent. By matching only elite level talent, fighters that succeed in our league will be proven and be ready for the professional circuit at a faster pace.
