    What do I remember from the early days? Most fighters having no fucking ground game, that's what I remember.

    Me too - you could win most of your fights with a quick double leg and an armbar from mount. Oh how things have changed

    Even when they started to learn the ground game, wrestling took even longer to arrive.

    Most Memorable for me were the Extreme Brawl shows in Bracknell. Andy Jardine put on some great early shows, the one fight that stands out more than any other from that era was Alex Reid vs Mark Weir, that was a bloody war and bloody was the word, both guys were firing away in a stand up slug fest no guard just swinging from the fences as they were so fatigued.

    It shames me to say it, but I'd almost forgotten about Chris. Thanks (no sarcasm).

    That fight was awesome - probably the most exciting fight I've ever seen live.

    On top of what others have said, and going off on a bit of a tangent, I personally remember the bizarre feeling of security I used to get upon arriving at Cage Rage at Caesar's Palace in Streatham Hill, having just got off of the bus from Elephant and Castle. It was really weird. 'Aah, I've survived the journey here, thank %&$# - here's the nice, peaceful cage fighting at last!'

    I have very fond memories of Chris Ballard we used to work the door together in Reading and I can assure you that he could do those spinning kicks equally as good in a pair of tight black trousers haha. RIP

    Christ, I'd forgotten how small that place was!

    I think that was my first show.
