New year, new competitions

With every one being disapointed with the Northern open being cancelled I thought would post details of a couple of competions in the begining of the new year if any one fancies traveling to them.

First one is Ground control grappling, a no Gi comp in Liverpool on Feb 22nd I think they are doing beginners cats. (less than 12 months) as well for the less experienced guys.

The second one is the Bristol open - winter leg. This is a Gi comp but I lot further to travel! This is going to be split over two days, Feb28th and March1st

More MMA this weekend....

Well this weekend, my fight is off.. got messed about a bit had 2 fights canceled then a dodgy offer so thats off! Not sure whats happening with Steve's fight not heard anything from him so don't know if thats on or not..

BUT on the upside, Marcs fight got cancelled on the same show and he went and accepted a fight on the Northern Fight League show organised by Rob Mills and Craig Jose in Newcastle, fought 'B' class pro and won in 2 mins of the first round via RNC!! awesome win.


Steve's opponant also came in over weight (90kg) so that fight was also pulled!! Not a great show it seems we went from 3 fights on the card to none! - Fantastic.
