Alliance MMA Scores on “Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series”

Two SuckerPunch Athletes Earn 5-Fight Ultimate Fighting Championship

MMA, Inc.
(“Alliance MMA” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:AMMA), a
professional mixed martial arts (MMA) company that brings together the
best regional productions to build the next generation of MMA champions,
announced today the victories of three Alliance MMA athletes featured on
the inaugural 10 bout card of “Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender
Series” (DWTNCS). SuckerPunch Entertainment athletes Kurt Holobaugh and
Boston Salmon, as well as Cage Fury Fighting Championship (CFFC)
Heavyweight Champion Zu Anyanwu, impressed the Ultimate Fighting
Championship (UFC) brass by each earning a win.

In the main event of the evening, SuckerPunch featherweight division
fighter Kurt Holobaugh defeated Matt Bessette by first round knockout
and was awarded a UFC contract. In a featured bantamweight bout, Boston
Salmon, also a SuckerPunch client, was presented with a UFC contract
after defeating his opponent Ricky Turcios via unanimous decision. In
the co-main event, CFFC heavyweight champion Zu Anyanwu was victorious
over Greg Rebello.

“We were quite pleased with the outstanding performance and positive
outcomes of our fighters Tuesday night,” said Paul K. Danner, Chief
Executive Officer of Alliance MMA. “Our mission is to build shareholder
value by propelling aspiring athletes to the pinnacle of our sport by
operating, on a profitable basis, a nationwide enterprise of world-class
regional MMA promotions that showcases their talent. Equally important
to the Company’s success is our SuckerPunch Entertainment group which
identifies up and coming talent as early as possible, then mentors those
promising athletes by seeking as many career-enhancing opportunities for
them as possible. The DWTNCS platform is a superb springboard for
Alliance MMA fighter careers in both cases.”

Next Tuesday on July 18th, Iron Tiger Fight Series (ITFS)
heavyweight champion Dan Spohn will headline the second installment of
DWTNCS as he takes on Angel DeAnda. That same evening, three additional
Alliance MMA fighters are scheduled to complete: CFFC and Ring of Combat
alumni Sydney Outlaw will face Michael Cora; National Fighting
Championship (NFC) and ITFS veteran Cee Jay Hamilton will take on Casey
Kenny; and Shogun Fights and Fight Time Promotions combatant Lazar
Stojadinovic will battle Thanh Le.
