Wamma?
 
Is this upcoming fight between Fedor and The Grimm for the WAMMA belt or is there no such thing anymore? It wouldn't make sense if it wasn't but it wouldn't make sense if it was either. Fedor is the WAMMA champ but he isn't the Strikeforce HW champ. So according to WAMMA he is the undisputed HW champ but not even the champ of the org he is fighting in. What's the deal with this?

WAMMA probably died with Affliction.

That answers nothing, that said it doesn't appear to be a title fight so maybe Strikeforce isn't gonna work with Wamma either, guess they still have Aoki :dunno:

Wamma just announced today they are sanctioning the bout and it will be for the Wamma title, supposed to have a new belt though to replace that ugly ass one.

“It’s a pleasure and a privilege to be a part of this incredible fight card that our partners at STRIKEFORCE and M-1 Global have put together,” said WAMMA Rankings Chairman, Andrew Falzon. “It is another landmark night for the sport on national television and a rare opportunity for fans nationally to see top WAMMA-ranked fighters compete on free TV.”
