Last Wednesday Ben Linihan and Rob McAdam added a whole new layer of intrigue to their scheduled November rematch on Warrior Fight Series 7 with an online spat worthy of any bout. The back and forth began after McAdam accepted the Bermondsey based welterweight’s request for a rerun of their one-sided contest at Warrior Fight Series 5 in February and took public umbrage at his opponent’s view of their first fight, posting an expletive filled rant at the perceived slight.
