Namibia brought together fighters from 9 African countries in the capital city for the first-ever International Mixed Martial Arts African Championships.

The IMMAF African Championships wrapped up last weekend  in the capital. Held over six days at the Windhoek Hybrid Fitness Center, the event showcased explosive action as fighters battled for glory in various weight classes.

Namibia's Flyweight king, Damian Muller, retained his title after an intense battle with South Africa's Obakeng Mahura, following a heated pre-fight confrontation.

Democratic Republic of Congo's Jeremy Likobele puts his name in IMMAF history with a lightning-fast 5-second knockout in the Senior Men's Lightweight division. Egypt sent a single competitor who walked away with a bronze medal in the Middleweight category. South Africa's gold medalists, Genevieve Tuson and Sisa Njungula, described their experiences at the championship. 

This edition marked the largest African Championships ever hosted in Namibia, a testament to the surging popularity of MMA among the continent's young generation.
