Higher WWFC officials have something to say:
"First and foremost, what we wanted to achieve when we decided to run a tournament like this, for both amateurs and pros – is giving athletes a chance of becoming one step closer to success, provide an opportunity for them to prove themselves on the competitive level. The first qualifier has ended and clearly shown the potential of the event to have a bright shining future. I think it’s safe to assume that the second one will bring even more thrill and discoveries. The so-called "equator" of the series is an important moment, as it brings us closer to the boiling point of the event, which by the way is rapidly approaching. Good luck to our contenders and let the strongest prevail", - Volodymyr Teslia, WWFC & UFMMA chairman.
"We are absolutely satisfied with the results of the first qualifier round. At first, we were uncertain, as the "road to" format is new to our country. As we strive to set up the highest possible quality bar for this event, both athletes and the organizing team - carried a huge burden of responsibility. Surely, it was a trial for us all, and the cause is noble indeed. We’re hoping for big future of the Ukrainian MMA, and the next qualifier round is a chance for us to do even better. We’re waiting with anticipation and we invite all the MMA fans out there to join us and cheer for their favorites!", - Denys Perch, WWFC & UFMMA vice-president.
