Several times a year I get the pleasure of nipping down to what I feel is the epitome of England’s ‘Green & pleasant land’…it probably helps that every time so far it’s been bathed in a warm summery glow…but even so, Epsom Downs racecourse is about as relaxing as the countryside gets.
The grandstand plays host to ‘Fusion Fighting Championships‘, a domestic promotion rising up the ranks of well matched and professionally run events. The event is promoted by Mark Hobbs and Ricardo Da Silva, refereed by Mark Goddard / Mark Woodard and MC’d by Pierre Guillet.
I usually undertake a combined play-by-play/colour role here alongside UFC veteran Nick Osipczyk but on this occasion I was filling purely colour comms duties partnered with the highly experienced Malcolm Martin.
Working with people you haven’t met before can sometimes be a challenge but everything went extremely smoothly and I’m very pleased with the product that went to film that night.
The next event is scheduled for early November so I look forward to another jaunt down to Surrey for a solid evening of British mixed martial arts.
