On this weeks episode of the Top Control Podcast, I’m joined by BJJ brown belt and 10-2 Pro-MMA fighter Alex Enlund.

Back to Liverpool! Absurdly long drive up the torrid M6 motorway aside, this venue is seriously good. As for the fights…judge for yourself. Not a single pro-fight went past the second round.

Brad joined me on comms as per usual but also with two womens fights on the card, UFC veteran and former CWFC womens champ … Read More
Thanks to Dolly Clew/Cage Warriors for this great photo of me checking out the fighters cat walk prior to the start of the event! …can you think of a better way to end a show than new UFC 115lb signee JoJo Calderwood turning up with fudge?! I can’t. Post fight interview (Image copyright Dolly Clew/Cage Warriors) Ivan Buchinger banishes his … Read More
