'The Beast' is back at Your MMA, blogging about his upcoming title defence against Martin Svennson in Cardiff.

Yes, it feels great to be the Cage Warriors champion, but that high from getting that title wrapped around my waist is long gone. I am now working toward a new goal, a different way to achieve that high of being on top. On September 14th 2013, almost exactly 5 months since I won the title, I will be defending my belt for the first time in Cardiff, Wales on the Cage Warriors 59 card. I am training long and hard every day so that I can hear the words, “….and still Cage Warriors Featherweight champion, Jim ‘The Beast’ Alers.” When I hear those words I will feel that I am truly the champion and be on top of the world.
