Just before I went to away on a trip this last weekend, I managed to grab hold of local Amateur fighter Harry Davies and get a few of his thoughts.
The #TeamEatonArmy got some bad news today. We wanted to know what happened, what’s next and why we should still be attending BCMMA 14.
Mario ‘Rudeboy’ Saeed started his submission-heavy mixed martial arts professional career in 2011, with a rear-naked choke victory over Mark Baxter. It was on the show that was to become his home for the next few years: Ultimate Impact.
He went on to amass a record of 8-2 and has fought on shows such as Cage Warriors, earning a second fight name, ‘The Arm Collector’ (four of his wins coming by way of armbar).
A year is a long time in MMA.
Heading into his bout with hotly touted British heavyweight, Tom Aspinall, BAMMA Lonsdale champion Stuart ‘He Man’ Austin was aware just how high the stakes were.
“It pretty much started with the loss to (Norman) Paraisy.”
2014 was a difficult year for UK middleweight Leeroy Barnes, one he won’t be forgetting any time soon.
Corrin Eaton may already be five fights into his professional career, but as far as he and trainer Mickey Papas are concerned, it’s only just begun.
He’s fought on Cage Warriors, BAMMA, Pain Pit and OMMAC, but you may not be familiar with Ultimate Impact’s 155lbs champ, Marc Allen.
Those of you, dear readers, who were at Warrior Fight Series 3 in May will have had the good fortune to see some incredible fights, some mighty victories and some fantastic match ups. You will also have seen Jake George submitting to Jack Duffy in the second round of their amateur match up on the undercard.
If it was your first introduction to George – as it was ours – then although the result might not fill you with confidence, there’s enough substance to this young fighter (currently 4-2-0) to pique some interest.
