the main differences are that NABBA judge in height classes for men and have a trained and toned womens classes...

the UKBFF judge men in weight classes and the 2 main female classes are Physique and Bodyfitness....

for me i mainly choose NABBA as the height classes suit my physique plus NABBA don't dictate to the athletes what they can and can't do when not on the stage.... that actually make up the federation the UKBFF do....

Do some people choose one fed over another as more chance of silverware?
with the 2 mentioned their are guys who suit height classes of NABBA than weight classes of the UKBFF so would stand a better chance of winning more shows or placing higher by switching feds....

the UKBFF bans any of its members from competing or guest posing in any other show be this an open show or another federation like NABBA, i have asked many times how this stupid rule is good for the British Bodybuilding scene and i am yet to receive an answer........

If you compete in ukbff you can only compete for them long story cut short

Nabba you can still compete elsewhere, personally I'll go with ukbff for the fact they have the classic class until then the under 80kg class, I don't think I'd do too well in a height class at the moment

Each to their own really as to what fed people choose

Seems to me like a bit of a strict rule. There must be something behind it, however I dont agree with it. Unless someone can convince me.

NABBA you usually can only do your local show, UKBFF you can compete at any show, regardless of location. UKBFF is also affiliated to the IFBB, so there's a chance of getting a pro card if you win the overall (men) or place well abroad.

From what I have heard it is due to the funding side of things, it is seen by the ukbff that they give a lot of support to their athletes in order to help them progress and they want those athletes to stay loyal by showing what their progress at their shows, also last year didn't they pay for their winners to go to the Arnold? They paid for a team to go tothe worlds and Europeans also don't they?
