In MIMMA 2, the tournament will be looking for new champions, with a twist; winners from this season will be recognised as contenders to challenge the current MIMMA Champions for the championship title.

The MIMMA Championship titleholder will be Malaysia best amateur MMA fighter.

However, if any of the current champions have already received an offer or signed a professional MMA contract with an international organization, the title belt for that weight division will be deemed vacant for a new champion from the 2014 MIMMA.
