The M-1 brand, on the territory of the former Soviet Union, has the same weight as the UFC does in the United States. There are many European territories, such as the Ukraine and Georgia, which are starting to develop MMA in their jurisdictions specifically under the M-1 brand. M-1’s first goal is to assist these new markets develop in their own right so they can begin feeding the M-1 Global organisation with fighters who are coming up through the ranks in their respective countries; these fighters will then find themselves with opportunity to fight on the promotion’s larger international stage. As Europe’s leading MMA promotion, M-1 Global believes the sport should be more than just exclusive organizations where fighters never have the opportunity to meet each other, where promotions compete against each other but never work together. M-1 Global represents the unification of all MMA fighters without the consideration of which organization they are fighting for. This is something actively practice by sharing fighters with other organizations: Dream in Japan, Strikeforce in the U.S., etc. It is what M-1 Global considers to be the future of the sport; a sport where there aren’t exclusive organizations but rather a working collaborative where the best fighters in the world get to fight each other.
