The sport of MMA has enjoyed a dramatic increase in popularity and size ever since the 1990s, both internationally and locally.
With numerous promotions now spread all across the world and the US, it’s easy to see why this growth happened so quickly.
Here, we’re going to be taking a look at the top MMA promotions in one of the most populous states in the US; Indiana.
THE BEST MMA PROMOTIONS IN INDIANA
1. Legacy Fighting Alliance
The first on our list is the Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA), the promotion was created in 2017, following the merger of Legacy Fighting Championship and Resurrection Fighting Alliance.
The promotion is one of the biggest MMA organizations in the US and by far the biggest in Indiana, with a social media following of over 21,000 followers on Instagram, and close to 10,000 followers on Twitter.
LFA organizes fights almost every week, and its fights are usually aired on UFC Fight Pass, this close affiliation with the UFC is why many have dubbed the LFA the college football of MMA.
Another reason for this is the fact that a total of over 176 fighters, including champions like Henry Cejudo, Kamaru Usman, and Valentina Shevchenko, have all made successful jumps from LFA to the UFC.
2. Art of Scrap
Number two on our list is Art of Scrap.
Art of scrap is an MMA fight show, based in Fort Wayne, IN.

3. Colosseum Combat
Self-acclaimed Indiana’s Premier MMA promoter, Colosseum Combat is one of the biggest promotions to come out of Indiana in recent years and has been existing since 2010, it’s not hard to see why.
