It's nice to have a clean sweep, but as a coach my objectives are really performance based, not results based.
Jim "the Sexual Intellectual" Burman fought like a veteran in his debut, followed the gameplan perfectly and proved his mettle under duress. We may see Jim's "writer to fighter" journey in print at some point in the future. Keep hassling him to put pen to paper.
"Dangerous" Dan Blenkharn is starting to exceed the original spirit of his nickname, and is actually now more dangerous to other people than he is to himself. Dan applied excellent, measured tactics, great footwork, angles and cage control to kayo his opponent in 36 seconds.
Simon Gould gave the best performance of his career against a superb opponent from the Rough House. Simon's strength, fitness and unorthodox striking style allowed him to impose his will on the fight and take the decision. A deserving winner for fight of the night.
More important than winning, all of our athletes fought to their potential, showing everyone why we are Newcastle's number 1 for Muay Thai and MMA.
