New blog, some thoughts on journeymen, cans, jobbers and everything inbetween:
Bit of drama thus far if you haven't been following! Johns 2.5lbs over, but hopefully he can cut it and the title fight will be unaffected.
Few more guys over, Handley by 4.9lbs but he did come in...
James Brum fights Brett Johns for the Cage Warriors bantamweight title tomorrow night in Swansea, and finds himself likely coming in as favourite, despite being the challenger.
Brum thinks his...
Gavin Sterritt moved on to 2-0 under the Bellator banner a couple of weekend's back, with a win over 6-2 Mike Estus.
Harry Williams spoke to him about his recent success, flying under the radar...

Good read that Brad.
Sadly in cases like this the only opinion worth a dime is that of your employer. If he doesn't want to pay for your services then tough shit. You're free to ply your trade...
Off the back of some honest words from James Pennington, I wrote this article abouts nerves and anxiety for fighters, and how people are looking to get the better of them:

Two Brits on the UFC Fight Night Berlin card.

With no more 5*deal, this weekend's BAMMA event will be live and free on facebook. Details here:
I agreed to fight Galiev last year but they got a Japanese guy in instead. Watched some tape on him, he looks good. Good opportunity for someone but date is no good for me this time.
I have to say, I was very impressed. Parker is no slouch by any means and he dominated him.
There were good wins in the pro ranks from Lloyd Clarkson, Mark Diakiese Krzysztof Golec, and excellent ammy performances from Sam Wilkinson and Richard Herbert. Check out the report here:

And you can now watch the Loughane fight and the Menga fight.
Yeah, they have a local guy helping out with that stuff. I guess it's just a case of having faith in the people you employ. The local bouts are mostly amateurs too, and that's makes them somewhat of...
