it wasnt really explained why they had given a guy a free pass, bit poor of the organisers to be honest
that said it was a good event for the audience and im happy with my performances
congrats on your performances,

to be fair to the organisers they had loads to deal with on the day, 6 people didn't turn up, 3 came in at totally different weights to what they had said plus two people turned up that weren't showing on their registration list so for a first time show i think it's quite impressive that they got through it without anything too major going wrong.
just got back from a&e after dislocating my shoulder in my second fight, probably wasn't the most intelligent thing i've done taking the third fight, but with the adrenaline etc it didn't seem too bad at the time
Watched this yesterday, congratulations to all the fighters and organisers. Was a good show and although I couldn't really get close enough to see everything that was going on, saw some good fights.
Any results or photos gonna be posted?
there were two official photographers so presume there will be pics.

WW was won by leon edwards (UTC), anthony subhan came second and i came third
MW was won by russ dulleston (team supreme) and anthony sylvesta came 2nd (UTC) can't remember who came third
Featherweight was won by Brad Gallagher from Coventry Renegade Revolution. This event was also his MMA debut so a fantastic introduction to the scene. The event was a bit chaotic and disorganised but some great fighters in all classes, especially Featherweight. I have to say that even though this was an amateur show most of the fighters behaved like pro's. A big thankyou to team UTC for their sportsmanship, we will take you up on that invite sometime lads!
that's the thing isn't it at the time you don't notice it when you've got the adrenaline going but once that wears off all the aches and pains come out, today i feel like i've been beaten with a baseball bat. the shoulder should be fine, just need to rest it for a while apparantly, suits me as it gives me an excuse to be slack with my training for a while and enjoy the summer (if we have one)
