World champions will be looking to add to their trophy cabinet when they gear up to compete at the Global Association of Mixed Martial Arts (GAMMA) European Championships in Tbilisi.

Georgia's Giorgi Natobaidze, who won the world title in the men's 56.7-kilograms striking MMA category, is among the key names to watch out for as he looks to secure a gold in his home country.

Veronika Smolkova of Slovenia and Iwo Baraniewski of Poland are also in line to make an impact.

Smolkova sealed the world title in the women's 61.2kg striking MMA division while Baraniewski took the top accolade in the men's 120.2kg MMA class earlier this year.

Italy's Roberta Zocco has also been tipped to challenge in the women's 56.7kg MMA group.

This will be the second time the GAMMA European Championships have been held following the previous edition in Ukrainian capital Kyiv last year.

Ten men's weight categories and seven women's divisions across both MMA and striking MMA disciplines has been scheduled.

Competition is due to start tomorrow with events running until Wednesday (September 28).

"I am delighted to welcome our European MMA community to Tbilisi for these Championships," said GAMMA President Alexander Engelhardt

"A lot has happened since we were all together in the Ukraine last year and I want to thank all of our members, and of course our organisers here in Georgia, for their ongoing hard work and commitment to stage this event.

"As an organisation we know how important these Championships are for the continued development of our sport and I am looking forward to a highly competitive competition this week."
