As if Dayman Lake Vs Kerone Davis in a K1 match up wasn’t big enough, Lion Fighting Championship promoter Leo Alderman is still matching up the big kids, his latest addition to the card being 6ft 5″ Luke Trainer, in a battle with another tall drink of water, Mathew Nicholson. Let’s just hope the LFC cage has been modified with a few reinforcement safety measures.
Who has woken me from my eternal slumber? Why wont you leave me alone? They put me in the soil, they said my work was done, they said I didn’t have to do this anymore, they put a stake through my heart for gods sake, do you have any idea how violating that is? I’m struggling to express myself now. I just want to sleep and all I can hear is an alarm ringing, the morning chorus of birds, church bells, just leave me alone, South Coast MMA is dead isn’t it? Please tell me its dead………. Oh! .. Shock n Awe is back with its 24th show is it? Maybe I can do this one more time, I just have to break out of this tomb and dig my way through 12 feet of soil.
The hype might have all been about an American legend’s first appearance on British soil, and the event might have taken place in Manchester, but it was the port city of Liverpool on the map last night at Tanko Fighting Championships 3.
Lawrence Fitzpatrick – a fighter raised in Scouseland – stunned Victoria Warehouse with a first round victory on Saturday evening, choking infamous MMA icon Charles “Felony” Bennett into submission after just 4 minutes and 32 seconds.
It has been a tough week for Lion Fighting Championship promoter Leo Alderman, some of his high profile bouts have been rocked by injury over the past few days, the latest being Andrew Cunningham forced from his HW K1 title with Kerone Davis, but as fate would have it, Dayman Lake decided it was time to come out of retirement and save the day. More bad news arrived over the past 24 hours with news breaking that WW champ Tom Wincott sustained a nasty injury, rendering him unable to defend his belt against previously announced Martin `ManTime’ Hudson.
Last week we announced that Kerone `The Monster’ Davis would be facing off in a heavy weight K1 battle against Andrew Cunningham this March 12th in Kent on the Lion Fighting Championship promotion. Sadly, due to injuries sustained in his epic battle with Mike Neun at last weekend at UCMMA 50, Cunningham has been forced to withdraw.
But all is not lost, Dayman `Godzilla’ Lake has answered the call, this fight just got even bigger.
Last December controversy raised it’s ugly head early on in the third round in the professional bout between the UK’s Alan Procter and Icelandic fighter Bjark Thor Palsson.
The fight itself had been an entertaining engagement between both athletes, with Gunnar Nelson understudy Palsson seemingly having the edge over the first two rounds as the FightStar promotion held its first event in London.
They said it wouldn’t happen, they said no chance, but he is here, he is ready to go. The `Felony’ Charles Bennett is in the UK, and this Saturday will take on Lawrence Fitzpatrick in a bout that has got the whole country buzzing. It’s fair to say, Tanko have really pulled this one out of the bag.
Another bout between two well rounded fighters has been added to March 12th’s Lion Fighting Championship.
Both Qamer Hussain and Lukas Bienias will be facing off with each other at the Casino Rooms in Kent, both have a lot to prove.
The Freeman name is legendary in MMA. Everyone knows who Ian “The Machine” Freeman is, what he has accomplished, and how he worked damned hard for it; but what some people may not know is there is now a female ‘Machine’ in the shape of his daughter Kennedy. She’s a fighter in her own right. She’s slowly making hard waves on the female fight scene. She is a fighter I have had my eye on for some time and really enjoy watching, and with a pedigree like hers there is no doubt that this young lady is going to rock her division in style. I was lucky enough to get some time with the very talented Kennedy Freeman.
Another exciting and explosive K1 title belt has been added to the Lion Fighting Championship 11 card this March 12th, as Fabio Barros and Dominik Matusz are set to battle it out for the lightweight title.
