The MMA watch online : BAMMA 29

`Here it is the groove slightly transformed, just a bit of a break from the norm’.

It was always going to happen wasn’t it? The glorious South Coast Watch like a pretty little caterpillar crawled into its cocoon, and emerged as a big beautiful butterfly, that’s right, I sold out!

After years of trawling the warmer climates of the South of England, seeking out new talent and technically sound face smashers, a needle of opportunity presented itself to my beautiful yet chiseled form.

The South Coast Watch really is dead, it’s gone forever – In it’s place stands The MMA Watch Online, an exceptionally mediocre blog solely designed to help me meet more women and earn me free tickets to one of the biggest shows in the world! BAMMA!

CageWarriors 83 : Wales : The Review

Many battles have been fought over the history of time in the beautiful land we call Wales, with stunning castles being built in the process, overseeing the exploits of the enemy ahead. Tales of Welsh knights and similar folklore have been passed down generations, bringing to mind a Warrior who feared nothing and no one, a man who would take on dragons and unearthly creatures, never knowing if he would survive the day. Even the legend of King Arthur was rumored to have taken place in Caerleon, Newport, a place not too far away from a Warriors event that took place on Saturday evening, with these battles being fought in a cage, with courage and honour that any Welsh knight from the past would be very proud of. This event was CageWarriors Wales, with a fight card that would be downright clever with every fight being a demonstration of hard work and persistence.

Adrenalin at the Grand

Saturday nights alright for fighting but a Sunday is awesome, and the Sunday just gone was just that, as James Wallis yet again, put on another excellent night of fighting at the Grand Theatre in Swansea. A 19-fight extravaganza mix of K1 and MMA in a very grand theatre indeed. Let me just set the scene. A beautiful velvet seated auditorium, with a stunning cage set on the stage. VIP tables on the right of the cage and officials sat to the left, the whole layout worked a treat, with everyone able to watch the nights action ahead. As welsh channel S4C were filming this as part of a new contract to highlight the Welsh fighting talent, this was certainly one of the best shows to bring in new fans, and I managed to do that as I had brought my good friend Gemma Price with me, who runs the Boxing Pretty group, a group that train Women to box and put on all female boxing shows, Gemma became an MMA and K1 fan on Sunday night, as she sat with me and took in all the beautiful action in front of us.

Leo Alderman’s LFC promotion held its eleventh show this past weekend at the Casino Rooms in Kent, after two weeks of turmoil with fighter pull outs due to injuries and many other things.

Budo 19 Wales : The Review

From start to finish, this Budo was an interesting one. With some exciting match ups and fights, these shows in Swansea get better and better. This was the second one in the LC Swansea, a perfect venue for a fight night. Marc Moggridge, Addicted photographer extraordinaire, and I had arrived early, ready to start soaking in the atmosphere, and after some nice food with Budo boss, Chris Clarke, and a catch up with promoter Dino Gambatesa, Marc and I settled into our seats, as the crowd started arriving, ready to cheer and support their fighters. Once again, the room started filling with standing only on one side and a plethora of VIP tables on the other, it always seems to work well on this promotion.
