Sorry guys, after long running negligence on the part of Orange, I've finally been reconnected to the modern world by our saviours, British Telecom. So, normal service will resume shortly. I just play catch up with a couple of fights you may have missed.

Strike or Submit 3

Richie Knox battled it out with Doncaster lad Aiden Pulver. After knocking him down with the first jab thrown , Richie chased him to the mat looking to guillotine against the fence. After a good takedown and good ground control Richie got over zealous with his bodyshots and started to throw to the head. After both fighters threw some telling punches and leg kicks, Richie took him down but once again went to the head and was DQ'd. Next time he'll be fighting pro.

War in Workington

Bryan Moore represented the Knuckledraggers against a very hard, very big Lithuanian international. Bryan executed the gameplan perfectly in the first, putting on a clinic of G'N'P and cage control, shutting his opponent out of the fight completely. Unfortunately the second didn't go quite the same and after the lithuanian escaped from the mat after Bryan's first takedown of rd.2, he was caught in the range of exchanges, unable to effectively trade with the bigger, rangier man, and was felled by some huge powerful punches. Bad result, but a masterful performance from the North-East's Randy Couture, Bryan Moore.
