    Steven made his Pro debut on 27/6/2010 and Curt on 18/5/2007. He pretty much went into his first fight with a small and minimal amount of training and no martial arts background. I hear what your saying about the experience and I was wrong to put 10 years of experience. Steven made his Pro debut 4 months before Curt had his 1st UFC fight.

    Ray has defo not been training longer though as he's only been training for about 3.5 years and don't forget that Curt was a member of the Wolfslair when they were at the top and had the best guys and training available.

    Curt is a great fighter so it's not to detract anything away from what he has achieved or the level he is at just to point out that someone with many years left in the game will be improving all the time.

    Oh and yes, my bad about him being Scottish!!

    Tom Breese has the potential to go far. Under the guidance of Marc Goddard and a few stints training at Tristar. Definitely on the right track.

    Easily one of the most well rounded fighters I've saw.

    If you're between the age of 27/33 - You're 'young' in MMA.

    Not born in the UK, but based in the UK.

    I've been lucky that I've had two wrestlers join the gym.

    The first, Simas Norkus, is an All American, two top ten places in the Worlds and Euros.

    Started MMA last November and his 3rd pro fight is this Saturday.

    Already ranked in the top 20.

    Wrestlers pick up things so fast.

    You are on the cusp of an international incident here.

    Lol great news for me then ^^ so much time to burn :P And anyone who wears Holland shorts is far from British in my opinion. British is someone who wants to be accepted as British and tries to be British. my view of course. Mo Farrem the runner is a prime example of what been British is for a guy who was not born here.
