Polaris 3 – Poole

Josh PalmerBJJ, Grappling Events, VideoLeave a Comment

Eveyone I worked with at MMA shows always used to joke that I was grappling biased. This is, it’s fair to say, true. But everytime I get to commentate a Polaris Jiu-Jitsu Invitational event, I’m reminded why I really do love the sport of submission grappling. Polaris 3 took place at the Lighthouse Centre in Poole right down on the … Read More

Had the pleasure of being asked back to commentate this great domestic event alongside the always entertaining Dan ‘Raspberry Ape’ Strauss. As great as some of the adult match ups were, the kids were the ones who stole the show! I highly recommend you check out this scrap between Cameron Hibbert and Mounir Baaziz.

After six weeks away from the mic, the arrival of Cage Warriors 73 at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle could not come soon enough!

Cage Warriors 69 Super Saturday promised to be an amazing event from the moment it was announced. Every fight was enjoyable, particularly the first half of the card which I have to admit … Read More

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. Not through poor match making as with some other shows but through great performances and highlight reel worthy finishes.

Let me just get something out of the way first: Swansea is a long way away and the M4 is atrocious! A drive that should’ve taken a little over four hours on Friday took me just over six! Anyway now that that little rant is over… Really fun show last weekend in Wales. The first trip for Cage Warriors to … Read More
