Mixed Martial Art fans can expect an exciting night of MMA action featuring some of the UK and Europe's most talented prospects. UFC calibre fighters such as Luke Barnatt, Simeon Thoreson, Ricco Rodriguez, Sokoudjou and Paul Kelly have all fought under the UWC banner at one stage or another in their professional careers.
Former Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez asserted on Monday's The MMA Hour he was initially sent an early release letter from Bellator that tried to change the language of their agreement whereby Bellator would only have to match UFC's 'material' offer. Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney challenged Alvarez's claims on Friday. Sunday Alvarez publishes what appears to be the letter he referenced on Monday.
Former UFC veteran Leonard Garcia is headed to Legacy Fighting. He will face Rey Trujillo at Legacy FC 21 on July 19th in Houston.
I was fortunate enough to catch up with UK MMA star Paul Daley at Urban Kings Gym in Kings Cross, London a while back and speak to him about how he fell in love with Martial Arts at a young age.
