Extreme Brawlfinishes Stellar Year For Uk Mma

Extreme Brawl
Finishes Stellar Year for UK MMA

By Jim Burman

The last big show in a great year for UK MMA was held on Sunday when long-serving promoter Andy Jardine put on the first in a series of new shows. In a larger venue to previous Millennium Brawls, the show provided a lot of bang for your buck (or punch for your pound?), with 13 high action fights. The last of four promotions within three weeks of each other, each show bringing in approximately 1000+ fans, Extreme Brawl raised the rafters at the Bracknell Sports and Leisure Center and helped prove that the supply has not exceeded the demand in the ever more competitive MMA market place.

The event saw the UK debut of three young American fighters who went 2 and 1 against their British opponents. Roli Delgardo (USA), ignoring crowd jibes about his pink singlet, set to work on Neil McLeod (UK) in a technical Welterweight match up. Opening with a flying knee that got him taken down, Delgardo worked patiently from the guard to secure a triangle. Showing great control he slowly stalked the submission before tapping McLeod out. Kyle Jensen (USA) then took on Jeremy ‘Bad Boy’ Bailey (UK) and demonstrated real focus as he took Bailey down, and methodically worked to the mount where he rained strikes down to force the ref stoppage. Controversy raised its ugly head however as Bailey protested the decision vehemently and wanted to fight on appearing unhurt from the onslaught. Eventually the tension died down and Bailey accepted the decision, although he was obviously still unhappy. Unfortunately the crowd didn’t get a chance to see Bailey unload, but Jensen definitely did a good job of containing a tough competitor. The headline fight of the night saw Alex Evans (UK) take out Matt Shaw (USA) with an unfortunate outcome. Evans, known as a furious fighter, set out stalking Shaw immediately using kicks and punches to feel out his opponent. A high kick that glanced off of the face of Shaw seemed to jolt the American into action as he rushed for the takedown and settled in Evans’ guard. Just as he started to work to pass, blood could be seen coming from his face and he backed off from Evans signaling to the ref. It appears that the glancing high kick actually resulted in Evans’ toe going into Shaw’s eye rendering him unable to continue. A disappointment as this fight was shaping up to be a war, but accidents do happen. With a great undercard, Extreme Brawl can only build on this highly successful show.
