    Tara Brady – UWC will not be compromised in its integrity and approach towards the sport of MMA. This type of behaviour from senior fighters is hugely frustrating and makes the challenge of driving MMA towards a mainstream professional sport even tougher. However, UWC and the sport of MMA will not be deterred and the challenge will continue to be met. I’m personally disappointed for the fans and other fighters who were looking forward to the show. A new date will be arranged in the near future.
    That section is particularly intriguing. Wonder which fighters are dosed up lol... Fair statement though overall.

    I think on the back of the recent breakthrough of SAFE MMA in UKMMA, that any fighter/& or fighters who hold any objection to any form of drug testing policy should be named & shamed.

    Also demanding more money for fights. Is that ominous for SAFE as the costs have got to come from somewhere!

    1. UWC wasn't signed-up to Safe MMA

    2. A Safe MMA show should never book you anyway

    3. You shouldn't be talking about safety or anything MMA unless it's to say you are never fighting again

    All he did was ask the question, point one covered, point two and three despite looking out for his safety, albeit kind of, were unnecessary.
