Warrior Promotions fighter and fifteen time Cage Warriors veteran “Judo” Jim Wallhead has been on impressive form of late with 10 wins out of his last 12 bouts (in MMA and Kickboxing action) This 24 year old fighter from the outskirts of Leicester has been climbing the UK and European rankings for some time due to his wins over the likes of UFC veterans Steve Lynch and Jason Tan, and most recently against the highly regarded BJJ Black Belt Fabricio Nascimento on July 12th.

A team mate of Dan Hardy, Paul Daley and Andre Winner; Wallhead is another Team Rough House member to watch out for in the Welterweight division and has been defeating foes with his mix of punishing takedowns and ground and pound for some time. But as of late Wallhead has upped his conditioning and Muay Thai training which has strengthened his game and given him the confidence to stand and trade with opponents, which has seen them sprawling to the canvas due to his improved striking.

Now Wallhead looks to take the next step up as he attempts to break into the lucrative US and Japanese markets. As a result the likable Father-of-one traveled to Las Vegas yesterday for a two week training stint at Xtreme Couture, before he returns to Europe to fight twice in September. Everyone at Warrior Promotions hopes this will be the push that sends this talented and versatile Judo Black Belt onto the next level.

As a result Wallhead has been gaining more and more plaudits due to his impressive performances and likable demeanor. He has even found himself filmed for the forthcoming Channel 5 documentary ” Help, I have a high maintenance husband” whilst the print and internet media have also been busy reporting on career of this young rising star.
