Saturday, the WMMA Press Association announced it’s pick for the 2014 Promotion of the Year.
The UFC held 31 female pro bouts this year, the most by any organization. This doesn’t include the Ultimate Fighter 20 pre-tapes matches from this summer. With their expansion of their bantamweight division and addition of the starwweights, the UFC has gained ground in the women’s divisions and looks to continue the momentum in 2015.
The crowning of Carla Esparza as the first ever UFC strawweight champion took the “Headline of the Year” honors.
Congratulations to the UFC for the WMMA Press Awards 2014 Promotion of the Year.
