The Qatar Mixed Martial Arts Committee was formed by the Qatar Boxing and Wrestling Federation (QBWF).

The committee will be led by H.E. President of QBWF Sheikh Fahad bin Khalid Al-Thani, as announced in a press conference held at the QOC Headquarters. The new committee also includes Sheikh Ali bin Jassim Al Thani, Sultan Hassan Al Jemali, Hamad Salim Al Hajri and Adel Ghanim Al Marzoughi.

The popularity of MMA has grown in Qatar among the country’s youth in recent years and has been adopted by six local sports clubs.
