The Southeastern Fight League’s mission is to promote mixed martial arts competition in the Wiregrass Area. Our goal is to provide the safest venue for our competitors with the most experienced officials and staff in Southeast Alabama. The Southeastern Fight League is one of the most experienced fight leagues in the state of Alabama, hosting fights weekly with our “Hooters Friday Night Fights”. SEFL provides an opportunity for amateur MMA, kickboxing, and submission grappling athletes to build their record, hone, and enhance their skills in the cage.
Any legitimate mixed martial arts academy or fight gym is welcome to compete
in our weekly events. We have novice events for amateur fighters with less than five fights and an open class for more experienced amateur fighters. Novice fighters are required to wear official amateur MMA gloves and grappling shin guards provided by the promoter. Fourteen to seventeen year old competitors are required to wear larger amateur MMA gloves (the equivalent of a 16 oz boxing glove on the striking surface), grappling shin guards, and MMA/grappling head gear also provided by the promoter. Eighteen and under must have a parental consent waiver signed for each event. All participants must provide their own groin protector, mouth piece, and MMA fight shorts with no pockets.
Our events allow successful amateur mixed martial arts competitors to have the opportunity to become professional fighters. We have a massive pool of fighters with the most prolific ring experience in the area. SEFL currently has over 100 amateur fighters. Ubersmash considers our amateur league to be one of its MMA “minor” leagues which feeds into their professional circuit. Our professional fighters compete regularly at Ubersmash and other professional events held in the Southeast Region. Ubersmash is owned and organized by a prominent fight promoter, known for his events on HBO, Showtime, ESPN, and Eurosports.
SEFL also plans to promote professional mixed martial arts events through the newly formed Alabama Athletic Commission. As a league, we plan to work closely with officials of the Commission to provide an example for other fight leagues and promoters throughout the state of Alabama.
