Undefeated Tom Breese (10-0; fighting out of Montreal, Canada) will headline the UFC FIGHT PASS prelims on Saturday June 4 against American Sean Strickland at UFC 199®: ROCKHOLD vs. BISPING 2. The up and coming Birmingham native previously competed for Cage Warriors before moving over to UFC in May 2015.

Closer to home in Newport,Wales headlining Cage Warriors 76 is Welshman Jack “The Hammer” Marshman (18-5), who is on a four fight win streak and will be looking to extend his streak on June 4. Marshman is ranked within the UK’s top 10 middleweights and one of the most dangerous middleweights with 11 knockouts in his professional career.

Brad Pickett and Davey Grant added to UFC London Feb 27th

Fan favourite and veteran of the sport Brad “One Punch” Pickett (25-11-0, fighting out of London, England) will compete in front of his home crowd, as he takes on Mexican Henry “Bure” Briones (19-5-1, fighting out of San Diego, CA, USA).


London, UK – UFC® – the world’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) organisation – has announced two more bouts set to feature on the UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON card.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON marks UFC’s return to England after almost two years’ absence. Tickets to the event, which is set to take place at London’s O2 Arena on February 27, sold out in just 27 minutes, demonstrating the overwhelming demand from fans across the UK for live UFC action.

East Londoner Pickett was a keen soccer player in his youth and used to box to keep fit. He later made the decision to switch to MMA in order to experiment with a variety of disciplines, and soon found a natural talent for the martial arts. Pickett has been competing in the UFC since 2011 and, in that time, has picked up no less than five Fight of the Night bonuses.

In March 2014 Pickett secured an unforgettable win over Irishman Neil Seery in front of home fans at the O2 Arena. The Englishman will undoubtedly be looking to replicate that success come February 2016.

Briones, meanwhile, is a veteran of the UFC’s reality TV show The Ultimate Fighter® and joins an impressive crop of talent emerging from Latin America, looking to make their mark. “Bure” was a dedicated hockey player before he made the decision to step into an MMA gym in his hometown of Tijuana, Mexico in 2006.

Britain’s Davey “Dangerous” Grant (8-2-0, fighting out of Bishop Auckland, County Durham, England) will also step out in front of home fans on February 27, as he goes toe-to-toe with Ecuador’s Marlon “Chito” Vera (7-2-1, fighting out of Chone, Ecuador), who is also looking to make a name for himself in the bantamweight division.

Grant first began training in MMA as a way to build up his fitness but, after progressing through his teenage years, he made a bid for a career in the sport.

In 2013, Grant was a standout on The Ultimate Fighter®, where he competed under the direction of coach and former women’s bantamweight champion “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey. Grant was due to fight at UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON in 2013 but was forced to withdraw just days before the fight after sustaining an injury. Fans have been clamoring for the Englishman to return to the Octagon ever since.

Grant faces a young contender in Vera who, at the age of 23, has two UFC bouts under his belt including a win against Roman Salazar, which earned him a Performance of the Night bonus. “Chito” grew up in Ecuador and began training in MMA at 16, with one goal – to fight in the UFC.

Also set to compete at UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON are British fighters Michael “The Count” Bisping, who takes on Holland’s Gegard Mousasi, Birmingham’s Tom Breese, who faces Japan’s Keita Nakamura, and Mike Wilkinson who meets Makwan Amirkhani.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT® LONDON will be available to watch live on UFC Fight Pass.

UK Amateur MMA Team Revealed For 2015 IMMAF European Championships


The United Kingdom Mixed Martial Arts Federation (UKMMAF) has announced the UK Amateur MMA team for the 2015 IMMAF European Championships of Amateur MMA.

UKMMAF Team Picture

Try-outs had taken place over the past few months and welcomed competitors from all over the UK.

The 2015 IMMAF European Open Championships will take place in Birmingham (UK) from 19th – 22nd November 2015 at the Walsall Sports Centre at the University of Wolverhampton.

The last  two years running has seen the UK team medalled at the IMMAF World Championships of Amateur MMA in Las Vegas (USA). The recent 2015 World Championships saw the UK earn its first gold medal as Josh Ellis titled in the Men’s Lightweight division. Middleweight James Duckett earned silver, while Jake Constantinou scored bronze at Welterweight.

With the European Championships able to permit double entries per weight class, it now opens up opportunities for more competitors on the squad. Additionally, not all of the 2015 World Championships team will be returning for the European event, including most notably IMMAF Lightweight World Champion Josh Ellis, due to injury.

For the first time the UKMMAF will be entering competitors into the Men’s Flyweight, Men’s Heavyweight and Women’s Flyweight categories.

Returning athletes to the UK team are James Duckett (2015 IMMAF World Championships silver medallist), Carl Burton (2014 IMMAF World Championships bronze medallist; 2015 IMMAF World Championships participant), Aidan James and Amy O’Mara (2015 IMMAF World Championships participants). Also re-entering is Ross Gallagher, who was selected to represent the UK for this year’s World Championships but was forcedto withdraw due to injury.
