The Smashes: UK Team News And Warwagon!
Sorry if this is a bit close to the other threads but I thought that we should have a separate thread for news ect.
Team UK rundown:
Colin Fletcher, 29 (8-1)
The Freakshow. Any UKMMA fan knows about Colin and his crazy antics however he also posses a wicked submission game. Despite being my favorite to win he is still untested on the UK scene with many of his compatriots having faced tougher competition.
Norman Parke, 25 (16-2)
Stormin Norman Parke is a beast, that is the easiest way to put it, despite being more low-key then Freakshow he has built a phenomenal record, being from Northern Ireland he doesn't quite fit in with 'The Smashes' idea, still his only loss in the last 6 years is to Irish standout Joe Duffy. (Who I'm sure will be in the UFC soon)
Michael Pastou, 30 (9-2)
A well rounded fighter who will do well on the domestic scene for a long while, Pastou has a relatively strong grappling game and will look to use that and his strength to his advantage, I don't see him making a statement in the UFC however.
Mike Wilkinson, 24 (7-0)
Mike Wilkinson is not a fighter that I know a lot about having never seen him fight, a scan down his record though shows it is good enough. An undefeated 24 year old, could be a dark horese.
Luke Newman, 22 (5-0)
The best boxer in the house. Guaranteed. Super fast hands and an ability to keep the fight standing if he chooses. I didn't see his fight against Andy Cona but against Lee Caers everyone thought he was gonna KO him and he just ragdolled him for the RNC.
Bola Omoyele, 30 (6-1)
My favorite for this weight class, a much loved fighter on the UK scene. He's a real heavy hitter and just smashed Warren Kee who held a 7-0 record, I'd compare him to Jimi Manuwa (but a bit more likeable)
Valentino Petrescu, 30 (12-2)
An old favorite of mine who I never realized was English, crisp muay thai is his greatest asset, though like most British fighters he has an ever improving grappling game, gave Jimi Manuwa a good fight at 205... Wait, what... he is cutting down to 170 now!? Uh, I can't see that being a good decision for him to be honest, he was a big middleweight.
Brad Scott, 23 (8-1)
Don't know much about him either, infact the only fight of his I've seen has him getting beat by Fadiora. He seems a lanky guy for 170, thats about all.
