    Exactly. Shock n Awe is this Weekend and are putting on a fantastic fight card with relevant fights top to bottom....I don't know how can ucmma say they're number 1. Cage Warriors blow them out rhe water and the smaller promotions are catching up.

    I came away with a bit of a 'meh' feeling from this card when all was said and done. More one-sided fights than usual. Two pointless title fights - Tomasz and Chi, and the main event which was a 'Catchweight Super Title Fight' under UK-1 rules...?

    The main event was enjoyable, I was surprised by Towler vs Lake...other than that it all felt a bit flat. I did miss the first five or so fights, but I'm told I didn't miss much there either.

    At the end of the day, UCMMA do a good job of playing to their crowd. The majority of the UCMMA crowd want beatdowns and KO's more than they want high-level MMA. So that's what they get, and that's why they keep coming back.

    One thing that did worry me was the (latest) drubbing of Andy Cona. Andy is a cool guy and has huge balls, but it's getting silly now with him and UCMMA. If you look at the guy's record and the guys he's fought, it's obvious he's being brought in to lose, and Saturday's loss was particularly brutal. His next opponent? Jamaine Facey in a UK-1 bout. Thankfully his new manager told me today that Andy won't be taking that fight if he gets his way...I hope for Andy's sake he does. Really irresponsible matchmaking.

    I don't think it's UK-1.
    I'm pretty sure it's mma.

    the manager should get his way, or change his job title imo

    Me too as far as entertainment goes but quality MMA was absent from a show that should be doing much much better.

    How much power can a manager really have over a fighter in the UK these days?
    I am quite sure that if Cona wants to fight he will fight and the onus is on the promoter to act responsibly and not book him.

    At UCMMA 26 the promoter gave "advised" suspensions so I wonder if they have done so again now and if so will other promoters take heed.

    I don't even mind seeing Andy fight on UCMMA in December as such...just not against Facey. Yes, the dude has a shocking record (0-8 'officially' I think, plus a few UK-1 bouts), but a lot of that is down to the matches he's taken for UCMMA and others. Put him on first against a guy with a similar record as a 'thank you' by all means, if you have to.

    At UCMMA 26 the promoter gave "advised" suspensions so I wonder if they have done so again now and if so will other promoters take heed.
    As of right now Andy is booked to fight at UWC on the 20th, just two weeks after getting knocked out at UCMMA. His opponent is 8-19, so I guess it's a 'fair' fight...but there's no way he should be competing two weeks after a KO like that.
