Wow, you're old. ;D
I'm not too sure about in Newcastle, but I have been training with the Hungarian top team member Attila Varga, he is fantastic at Muay Thai.
I hope you succeed in your dreams of going into mixed martial arts. If you do the only things I can recommend is to discipline yourself within a few chosen arts rather than taking a crash course in MMA.
