So, the news has broken. Three of the pioneers of MMA in this country have returned and are bringing mixed martial arts back to Berkshire. Back in the early noughties, Andy Sledge, and the James brothers, Paul and Simon, brought us the FX3 promotion; a Reading based company, rivalling Cage Rage as the premier show in the UK. Hosting eleven events from 2005 to 2009, the cards were littered with a who’s-who of not just domestic MMA, but global. To put this into perspective, these guys featured two UFC champions on their cards. In Reading.
