The International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) today welcomed the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission, or Comissao Atletica Brasileira de MMA (CABMMA), to its list of member commissions.

"This membership is a step forward for MMA everywhere as the world of martial arts turns to Brazil for inspiration," IMMAF President August Wallen stated today in a press release.

CABMMA will "supervise" its first event at UFC on FX 7, which takes place Saturday at Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo. (The event's main-card airs on FX following prelims on FUEL TV and Facebook.)

so are they the sanctioning body for this event or does the UFC still have the control for this event, but are going to "train on the spot" (for lack of a better term) for future cards in Brazil?
