Fight releases are like buses, you wait for one, then two come along at the same time. To top this off, we’ve now got another two bouts to tell you about.
When I go to an MMA event, one of my favourite things is enjoying a fight that’s slipped under the radar. A bout that no one has thought about, which ends up being an absolute banger. Well, I’m going to be an arse and tell you about the one that could easily fit that mound on WFS 7.
