If you recall some time last year when Barry's gym was constantly full of film crews, some talented guys from Sunderland University were putting together a piece on everyone's favourite "Net fighter" - Rob Mills.
Turns out it's actually rather good, so good in fact that it won a few awards recently. What can we do, everything we touch turns in to a winner. It's like magic.
Check it out here.
Tickets are available at the gym now. Get them now, because they're selling out.

Simon did the business last Sunday against Chris Batty. Simon took it to him hard from the opening bell, defended the takedown worked from Half guard. Simon worked the front headlock and locked up a tight guillotine after defending a big high crotch from the surprisingly strong Batty. Simon switched off to a reverse Mata leao finish to force the tap at the 3 minute mark. 2 hours to drive up, 2 hours waiting around, 3 minute fight, 2 hours back. Well worth it. Probably Simon's best technical performance to date.

You can see more of Chris Mason's photos on his facebook page. There's also a good selection of pics here from http://www.mmapics.com/
For any of you that didn't make it (what's your excuse) Rob put on a perfect performance against a very credible (and frankly massive) opponent in the shape of Scott Ward. Another representative of Scotland's dominant MMA team, a win over a ninja is something to be double proud of. This was not only Rob's professional debut, but was the first from our team to break in to the pro ranks. It's been a long time coming, and Rob has certainly done everyone proud, overcoming alot during his training camp and raising his physical and mental game from a part time amateur to a genuine professional. Enormously proud of you mate.
