Month full of MMA

16th May - Total Combat - Rainton Meadows Arena

Mark 'Groundskeeper Willie' Platts Vs Adam Steele for the bantamweight title

Ingolf Nielsen Vs Pete Hill in the 1st round of the £1000 lightweight title tournament, in which he can potentially get a rematch against the fighter he was beating last time, Anth Grecian!

Both fights are sure to be fantastic, both are training damned hard!


30th May - Pride & Glory - Scottswood social club, Denton

Lee Howes Vs Dave Bullock , Lee makes his return to MMA for his 2nd MMA fight

Steve Stringfellow Vs Paul Cooke for the Middleweight British Title

2 excellent matches both Lee and Steve come on strides each time they train.

30th May - First round of the British Fighting Championship - Newport, Wales

Dave 'Speedy' Elliott Vs Jean Silva

Dave gets a fantastic rematch against Jean Silva after his very fast 30 sec submission of Tommy 'Gun' Greaves, their first fight was going very well for Dave who was 'only' a 3 stripe blue belt at the time until an unfortunate eye poke... promises to be a right battle!

As usual, see the fighters for tickets if your going, support them!

Essex open this weekend - 3rd May

Suppose there is no forgetting but Marc Walders Essex open is this week, Sunday 3rd May. Plenty of guys going down so should be a good day! - Notables include first fight in the Adult category and first blue belt fights for Paul and Joe after their recent promotion. 

If anyone wants particular fights filmed or photo'd give me a shout on the day I'll be down but not competing.
