    They seem to be taking the standard UK journalist 'Cage Fighter' approach

    That gives us an interesting multiple choice question

    Dioes the MEN think

    a) Thai Boxing is Cagefighting
    b) Thai Boxing is MMA
    c) MMA and Cagefighting are two different things

    I may have solved the riddle - On the guy's facebook pages he has 'Worked at Full Contact Contender' listed under his employment history. He doesn't/hasn't worked or fought on the show, but that's likely where it's come from. Unfortunately a quick look at FB qualifies as fact-checking these days.
    Fighting, writing and mood lighting.

    I think it's a northern thing, most southern (particularly London) journalists know about MMA. like, for example GAD

    Cage fighting draws attention it shocks. Would we be speaking about it had they used the correct word?
