once every two months I get an invitation from one of my friends, called Emile, who lives in a City called Liverpool on the West Coast...sorta just above where Wales joins England on a map. Emile co-owns an MMA Promotion called "Cage Gladiators" I have a free pass to all events, including backstage pass, and in return I write a report freelance for MMAHitPit dot com...its a relationship thats nearly a year old now!
His event is based VERY close to TWO verrrra big teams. A National Team thats based less then 20mins walking, called "The Next Generation" and they have a guy called Paul Sass. He's remarkable...and he will end up in the UFC if he keeps performing as he has...he has something like 7-0 record...and ive never seen anyone fight like him before! He's also a REALLY nice guy...actually..kinda shy. He was in the main event and won.
The other big Camp is international. Its called "The Wolfslair" and its based at a place called Widness, which is half way between Liverpool and Warrington. You might have heard of it because its where Michael Bisping comes from, its also where Cheick Kongo and Quinton Jackson are based at present. Mike Dolce was also training there last month so I understand. So I meet them at the event...for obvious reasons, none of them attended last night
Jackson was busy fighting in the main event for the UFC at the same time as the Cage Gladiator event
So...Obviously I was in Liverpool and when I got back, my Hotel didnt have Setanta Sports...sooo I couldnt see it until...now
