    The ground game thing is too true - through 2002-2003 I watched more rib punching from within half guard than I'll care to remember.

    My personal favourite golden oldie is Andy Cooper vs. Gaz Roriston at MB 8. It was a back and forth war that I'll never forget.

    Like you all said Lee Hasdell he was one of the major factors that got me into grappling really and remember total fight forum at milton keynes and he was a nice guy.

    I got old style photographs (remember those) of my good self at Lee Hasdell's first shows in MK, I was doing sports massage, got pix with James Zikic at the show in 98 and pix of Dave van de Veen and Peter Djikman, think he fought Lee Hasdell that night, October 5 1997, beat that!!

    Will see if I can scan the photo in and post on here, got one with Geoff T and one with Chris Dolman but not in mi scrap book any more!

    I didn't think it was the greek dude who did the Voodoo. I'm pretty sure he was a Brazilian guy, can't remember his name, but he was Eder Chagas' (my old BJJ instructor from the Tokei) instructor from Brazil.

    man...he brought a crowd with him when he fought on Andy's shows. Never saw a single bum on the seat when he entered the cage could not even hear his entrance music cos the crowd was that loud.
