This past weekend I made the trip down to the Big Smoke, to the proper part of Laaaaandan Taaahn to watch the seventh incarnation of the increasingly popular Warrior Fight Series. After spending the preceding week in regular contact with head honcho Harry Shoebridge, I decided to turn the volume up on my phone whilst driving down, turning on WhatsApp notifications, half expecting a message saying “the event is off”. Let me put that into context, that’s not me saying Harry and his team are quitters, far from it. That’s me acknowledging the absolute shit house week they’d had pre-event.
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.
