Harry Williams caught up with Brendan Loughnane of Team UK 'The Smashes' fame, ahead of his featherweight bout with Mike Wilkinson at UFC On FX 6 this weekend:

"Everything has changed in my life," explained Loughnane. "Before I went there, I was just a local fighter that competed on shows like Ultimate Cage Championships and Clash of Warriors back in the day, I wasn't really doing too much. I always believed I could do it at this level though. I was always wishing for the chance to get myself out there.

"Since I've been back, I feel different as a person and a fighter. I feel that I walked into the house as a boy and left as a man. I found out what areas needed improving too.
