    Although I do appreciate that he is unlikely to have official permission to use the BAMMA logo and they are just a little to wet to tell him not to.
    Okay BakedBean i dont no you, dont like you, and couldnt give a fuck about your opinions!!!! As for using the BAMMA logo on the cage well that was with there permission i.e. the Bosses (Steve and Ashley) as for the fighter fighting twice in 1 night it was a massive concern as i didnt want that to happen but a so called fighter who didnt show left a guy who had trainned for 7wks and done a water cut in the shit so it was agreed between all parties (The fighters the coaches) exactly what would happen and they all agreed!!!! NOT IDEAL and not what i wanted by any means but sometimes you got to handle things there and then. Ive had 7 shows now and work very hard to make them the best i can (Safe -Good Atmosphere and Good Fights) I asked Brad to tell me 100% if he could take next fight and if medics would check him out if he had said NO or anything was wrong at all the unfortunate Jamie wouldn't of had a fight, its not the first time its happened and im not the first show FFS early UFC they would literally kill each other and fight again i will do everything in my power to make sure it never happens again. I only ever see you post about negative things and never the positives so with all due respect come to my show and see how it runs and what it is like, when ive had some of the very best Pro fighters/Coaches tell me its 1 of the best shows in UK they have been on and im up with CW- BAMMA- UCMMA for the Fight Lounge award for best promotion means im doing more good than bad and going in the right direction, then im Happy!!! a little setback by a fighter fighting twice is the only bad thing for what was a great night with a great atmosphere and some great fights!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the clarification

    It was not massive enough and if you didnt want it to happen as the promoter it would not have happened.
    Sure it was not ideal and was unplanned but at the end of the day it was your decision and it did happen.
    Do you think BAMMA would have done the same in that situation? perhaps you should ask them.

    I dont care if they all agreed to fight in flying monkey out fits using nunchukas it is your show, your decision and the buck stops there.

    And sometimes you handle them correctly and sometimes you screw up.

    I agree you put on good shows with a good atmosphere but that isnt in question. With regards to Safety however you have some work to do as this was an uneducated and poor decision which it seams you still feel was correct.

    Stop trying to blame others for your decision.

    So how far do you want to go back to justify your error in judgement? I mean in Roman times they used to fight Lions.
    Things have moved on and we now have guidelines and points of reference developed to keep the sport safe.
    You ignored these and your decision took the sport back 10yrs for a brief moment.

    Thats good to hear.

    I intend too but none of that is in question

    There was the time you got a Welter/Middleweight to fight for the Heavy Weight title but I appreciate that this wasn't really your fault completely.

    Just take a deep breath, If you cant take critism you really are in the wrong business.
    Take a look at Dana Whites Twitter or on the UG, that is what awaits you if you are successful.

    I hope you can see that my comments are not without merit and are a little more constructive than "you suck".

    I get why Bean & Equilizer are questioning certain things but in no way should Brad or Dale be put down for this.
    Happens every week at respectable shows up and down the UK

    Does it? really? respectable big shows?

    what would happen if it was on the TV and people started to question the fact that the same guy was fighting 2 fights later after losing by submission?
    Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer

    If however I fighter is seriously injured due to a poor decision by the promoter then that will certainly change.
    There are reasons why this no longer happens in regulated MMA.

    And to do so contradicts the wanting to be "respected" and "reputable"

    I do.

    I do not, that is bullshit, please furnish me with examples for the last 8 weeks or withdraw this comment.

    How many MRI or CT scanners have you seen at these local events?
    Do you know to what extent medics are qualified?

    There was no questioning, I last posted over a week ago but the promoter felt he had to come on here and hurt my feelings.

    Unnecessary risk of injury is fine just as long as the insurance pays out!

    Tell me more about this insurance policy you know so much about.
    What exactly does it cover?
    Fighter injury ? really ?

    Happens every week
    I have transacted with Brad and I am not interested in his fights, if he wants to be a journeyman then so be it thats not my affair.

    This does not happen every week but it did happen this week on Mark Carlings Show and that is the calibre of promoter that you associate yourself with when you ignore the safety precautions others have set out for our sport and move the goal posts for benefits outside of the interests of health and safety.
