JIMMY WALLHEAD SIGNS WITH CAGE WARRIORS


jimmy wallhead CW

Top English welterweight Jimmy Wallhead (25-8) has today joined Cage Warriors Fighting Championship’s stacked 170lbs division.

Wallhead, currently ranked as one of the UK’s top two welterweights, will compete exclusively for CWFC for a minimum period of 18 months after inking a five-fight deal with the promotion.

The 29-year-old began his career with Cage Warriors back in 2005, going on to compete under the CWFC banner on 15 occasions, more than any other fighter in the promotion’s 12-year history.

The latest addition to CWFC’s highly competitive welterweight stable, Wallhead will be aiming to stake a claim for a shot at championship gold when he makes his Cage Warriors return at CWFC 68 in Liverpool on May 3 against a soon-to-be-announced opponent.

“I’m extremely excited about my homecoming to Cage Warriors,” said Wallhead. “Cage Warriors was where I started and where I have some of the fondest memories from my career so far.

“I’m in the best mental and physical shape of my life, so to come back to Cage warriors to compete in a great talent-pool is an inspirational opportunity for me.

“My respect goes out to Graham Boylan and Ian Dean for creating an incredibly organised and focused promotion that continues to evolve and improve, making Cage Warriors an exciting prospect for any serious athlete.”

A judo black belt and veteran of 25 professional victories, 18 of which have come via stoppage, Wallhead holds notable wins over several fighters with UFC experience, including Igor Araujo, Matt Veach, Che Mills and Frank Trigg.

The Leicester native, who competed for Bellator on three occasions between 2010 and 2012, hasn’t been stopped in his last 20 outings, with his last loss inside the distance coming at the hands of current UFC star Dennis Siver back in 2006.

Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan said: “We’re very pleased to be welcoming Jimmy Wallhead back to the promotion. At 29, he’s in the prime of his career so he needs to be competing regularly against high-calibre opposition. That’s exactly what he’ll do here at Cage Warriors.”

See Jimmy Wallhead make his Cage Warriors Fighting Championship return on Saturday, May 3, at CWFC 68 at Liverpool’s Echo Arena! Tickets, priced from £30 plus booking fee, are available HERE.

Press Release.

JIMMY WALLHEAD DEPARTS FROM BAMMA


Jimmy Wallhead vs Frank Trigg Bamma 7

March 5th, 2014 – Fighter Jim Wallhead has decided not to renew his contract with BAMMA ahead of BAMMA 15. Fans had hoped there would be a re-match for the BAMMA World Welterweight title, but this now means new opportunities are on the horizon.

 

Since former team mates Jim Wallhead and Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley had vowed never to fight each other, Daley was excluded from title contendership. As Wallhead moves on, there are set be some exciting developments in the BAMMA Welterweight division.

Wallhead and Daley previously trained together at Rough House, but Daley now fights out of his own Spirit Dojo gym.

 BAMMA’s manager, Ashley Bothwell, said:

 “We are sorry to see Jim go, as he was well loved at BAMMA as a true BAMMA icon. We wish him all the best in his future.”

Jack Marshman

 [Feb 28th] Tillery Combat Fighter  Jack Marshman (14-4), has inked an five-fight deal with Cage Warriors Fighting Championship which will see him compete exclusively for the promotion over a minimum period of 18 months. 

Marshman one of the UK’s top middleweights, has taken all but two of his 14 wins inside the distance, 10 of which have come via (T)KO.

An active serviceman with parachute regiment 3 Para, Marshman is a former middleweight champion for domestic British promotion BAMMA and holds notable wins over the likes of Lee Chadwick and Andrew Punshon.

“I’m very happy to have signed with Cage Warriors and I’m looking forward to some really interesting match-ups with Europe’s premier promotion,” said the 24-year-old Welshman.

“I want to thank my superiors at 3 Para for supporting me in my MMA career and allowing me the opportunity to train full-time. Also thanks to Graham Boylan for giving me this fantastic opportunity.”

Thompson vs Selmani BAMMA15  April 5th

Europe’s flagship Mixed Martial Arts promotion, BAMMA, is proud to announce Oli Thompson vs Gzim Selmani as the Heavyweight headliner for BAMMA 15 at the Copper Box in London’s Olympic Park on 5th April.

Oli Thompson originally made his name as a strongman, peaking in 2006 when he won the TWI Britain’s Strongest Man contest and reached the finals of the IFSA World Championships, in which he came 8th. Thompson also notably attained 2nd and 3rd places in IFSA British Championship contests. The 34 year old debuted professionally in Mixed Martial Arts in 2009, and went on to become UCMMA’s Heavyweight Champion in 2011, before competing in the UFC then KSW. Training out of 1st Generation in Sussex with a professional record of 12-5, Thompson has gone 3-1 since fighting in the UFC and has won his last two bouts via TKO in the first and second rounds. 50% of Thompson’s wins have come via Submission and 42% via KO or TKO. Thompson weighs 248lbs at 6ft1.

Gzim ‘The Albanian Psycho’ Selmani fights out of Golden Glory and Tatsujin Dojo in the Netherlands with a MMA record of 5-1* and a kickboxing record of 1-0, the victory scored via a flying knee KO. The Kosovo Albanian stands at 6ft 3 and weighs 263 pounds. He started training in Judo at the age of 5, then started kickboxing at the age of 12 before taking up MMA at the age of 15 with his older brother Egzon Selmani. Gzim debuted professionally in MMA at the age of 18.

BAMMA‘s matchmaker, Jude Samuel, said: “Selmani is mainly considered a striker. However at 19 years of age he has not yet had his patterns laid down which makes him unpredictable, dangerous and exciting to watch.”

Indeed, 2 of his MMA victories have come via TKO and 3 via Submission. The ‘Albanian Psycho’ is also the Dutch Heavyweight Grappling Champion 2013, and the Rough Diamonds Kickboxing Champion 2013 in Germany. None of his fights to date have cleared the 2nd round.

Oli Thompson said:

“I have been looking to fight on BAMMA for a long time. The show always has a great look. I am bringing an intensity and athleticism that is not seen in many heavyweights, and I will put my body on the line to get the win at all costs. I want to become the first BAMMA Heavyweight champion”

TUF 20 Announces New Coaches – Gilbert Melendez and Anthony Pettis


pettis melendez

Gilbert Melendez and Anthony Pettis have both been named to coach the female Strawweights on this season’s TUF 20, yes you heard right.

Gilbert Melendez has now accepted a new offer from The UFC and one it appears he just could not refuse (again), exact contract details were not revealed but here is the Press Release from The UFC.

Tuf 20 press release

The Ultimate Fighting Championship announced tonight that No.2 ranked lightweight contender Gilbert Melendez has agreed to a new contract with organization.  Terms of the deal were not disclosed.  Melendez will now coach against UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis on season 20 of The Ultimate Fighter.  The two will then meet for the UFC lightweight title later this year.  The show, which will begin filming in May and premiere on FOX Sports 1 on Sept. 10th features the launch of the UFC women’s 115-pound weight class.  The winner of this season of The Ultimate Fighter will be crowned the UFC strawweight division’s inaugural champion.

We last saw Melendez in a toe-to-toe all out war with Diego Sanchez at UFC 166 last October in arguably one of the best fights of 2013, with Melendez coming away with the unanimous decision and ‘Fight of the Night’.

The coaching stint on TUF 20 will more than likely give Pettis the extra time for his injured knee which forced him out of his title defense against Josh Thomson back at UFC on Fox 9.

I’m going to have a guess that Melendez will bring in Nate Diaz somewhere along the line, which will make interesting viewing if you know the history of the two training camps involved!

It’s all about the women come September 10th when we can watch TUF 20 and I for one cannot wait.

Brad Pickett ‘One Punch’ fight is off with ‘Uncle Creepy’ Ian McCall

Looking at Brad Pickett’s Twitter this morning,  (UK Time) it was news that he deep down, was expectpting, but probably hoping it would not become a reality.

Today at 14.54pm he tweeted the following :

Although nothing else was stated and ‘Uncle Creepy’ Ian

McCall himself had not put anything at all on Twitter, this still led everyone to believe that the problem lies with McCall.

That has now been confirmed by Dana White that Ian McCall is infact out injured and will NOT be fighting UK’s Brad Pickett who also was making his 125lb debut in the Flyweight divison.

The UFC are still working on a replacment; I mean we do still have time on our side, especially since what has just happend to Daniel Cormier, who’s opponent Rashad Evans also fell injured, with only one week to go, despite DC tweeting ‘Chael.P.Sonnen and Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson to fight him; His new opponent is 4-0 fighter Patric Cummins.

Looking forward to see who the UFC bring in to replace ‘Uncle Creepy’.

There is plenty of time for The UFC come up with a suitable replacement to fight Brad Pickett on March 8th at The O2 arena in London.
