    was a good day, really enjoyed it. was happy to win the U85's and then had a good laugh having four bouts against the over 95's, even though i lost 3 of them to smothers, it really is hard getting those guys off you

    All the Pure MMA guys that competed did the team proud and i'm sure we'll be there in strong numbers at all future UMA events

    I think so, they didn't have the usual split of beginners and advanced this time, instead when registering it was split beginners, intermediate, advanced and elite and with the suggested time brackets this seemed to put almost everyone attending in either the beginners or intermediate

    Pure mma had some excellent competitors it was just a shame they didn't have some bigger guys winning their brackets to compete in the absolute.
    Would have liked to seen Stu Barrs v Tony Bebbington. I know Stu aint huge just think it would have been a good fight! Is Stu still recovering from his training for his fight last weekend?

    Yeah I couldn't convince the other guys from our team that won to do the absolute, I was well overmatched size wise and I made a bunch of mistakes that only added to my problems. Stu would have had a great scrap with Tony, he was up for competing but had to wait until after the Inman fight to register which unfortunately was too late
