All fighters on Bushido Fight Night must complete a Victorian combat sports professional registration even if fighting under amateur rules.
If i complete the Professional Registration does that mean I have turned Pro and am no longer able to compete as an amateur?
Registration will not affect your amateur fight record and will not prevent you from competing as an amateur in the future.
I am not from Victoria and I’m fighting under amateur rules do I need to be registered with the Victorian Combat Sports Board?
Fighters who are currently registered as Amateurs in other states may be eligible to fight in Victoria using their existing registration. Amateur Fighters from NSW will need to complete a new Victorian Combat Sports Board registration to fight in Victoria.
All paperwork must be fully completed and submitted to the Combat Sports Unit at least 14 days prior to the fight.
