- IMMAF WORLD AMATEUR MMA RANKINGS UPDATED FOLLOWING DOPING SUSPENSIONS
(London. 11 January 2016) Following the suspension of two IMMAF athletes for doping offences in 2016, the IMMAF World Amateur MMA Rankings have been updated accordingly:
Dallas Jennings (USA) has been stripped of his 612 points accrued at the 2016 IMMAF World Championships at UFC International Fight Week in July. The points deduction is now reflected in Team USA’s overall ranking score, which sees the team drop down one place to 5th.
Aleksandra Rola (Poland) has been stripped of her 548 points accrued at the 2016 IMMAF World Championships at UFC International Fight Week in July. The points deduction is now reflected in Team Poland’s ranking overall score, which sees the team drop down one place to 10th.
The revisions see Team Ireland move up to 4th spot in the World Amateur MMA Rankings and Team New Zealand step up to 9th. The 2016 IMMAF World Championships was the sole IMMAF event participated in by the athletes, and so the points deduction sees both eliminated from the athlete rankings.

Women’s National Wrestling Team training in Iowa City, Jan. 18-22, preparing for the Olympic year ahead
The U.S. Women’s National Wrestling Team is hosting a National Team training camp in Iowa City, Iowa from January 18-22. The team is training in the Dan Gable Wrestling Complex at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, and is guests of the University of Iowa wrestling team and Hawkeye Wrestling Club.
The camp is being conducted by National Women’s Coach Terry Steiner, and includes many of the top women’s freestyle wrestlers in the nation. These athletes are expected to be in the field at the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials for Wrestling, which returns to Carver-Hawkeye Arena, April 9-10.
This is the second time that Coach Steiner has conducted a National Team training camp in Iowa City, as a similar camp was held in 2012, another Olympic year. Steiner was a 1993 NCAA champion for Iowa, where he wrestled for the legendary Dan Gable.
“There are a bunch of different purposes. We have to come back together as a national team at camp. This is first time we have all been together as a team since the World Championships and that’s always important. We have some technical and tactical areas we need to clean up as a team,” said Steiner.
“The Olympic Trials are in Iowa City. Being in that arena, feeling the energy in Carver-Hawkeye and the flow of it, I want the girls to be very comfortable when we go in there in April. To train here for a week, they will be a lot more comfortable. Then, just to be around the Iowa program, which is known for its tradition of excellence, is invaluable. Just being around Tom and Terry Brands, men’s stars Tony Ramos and Brent Metcalf, people like that, is very important for them to see the intensity and feel the energy,” he said.
