Following on from the spectacular success of the inaugural Rumble At The Reebok, Double Vision’s Rumble At The Reebok 2 – The Ultimate Lads’ Night has gone from strength to strength.

The Ultimate Lads’ Night was initially planned as a small scale low key affair in one of the venue’s secondary function rooms. However, the outstanding success of Double Vision’s first event meant that promoter Darren Morris has now moved his second Rumble At The Reebok outing to the main event suite at the Reebok Stadium’s four star DeVerre Whites Hotel, vastly increasing capacity in order to cope with the upsurge in demand.

Interest in Rumble At The Reebok 2 – The Ultimate Lads Night hasn’t stopped there however. Double Vision’s partnership with the UK’s leading combat sports importer, wholesaler and retailer FIGHTSHOP.com and their specialist e-marketing division FIGHTPICS and combat sports blog FIGHTNUB has seen Rumble At The Reebok promotional material reach over 20,000 combat sports consumers in the UK alone.

The effect of this intense and co-ordinated marketing campaign and partnership between FIGHTSHOP.com and Double Vision has now seen the Rumble At The Reebok brand being picked up on European fight forums. Once such forum, the Dutch site FIGHTTALK.NL, saw a Rumble At The Reebok post made by a Dutch resident receive over 150 views in little over 20 minutes and it isn’t stopping there either.

One thing is for certain, the Rumble At The Reebok brand is going places that no other UK promotion has been and fighters who appear on any of their future shows are going be appearing on a platform that will do wonders for their profile and fight careers not to mention the sport of Muay Thai in general.
Rumble At The Reebok 2 – The Ultimate Lads Night takes place this Friday 14th August at the 4 star DeVerre Whites Hotel at the Reebok Stadium Bolton.

OMMAC Assassins, Liverpool Olympia 08/08/09

OMMAC (Olympian MMA Championships) is the new MMA event from former Cage Gladiators co-promoter Chris Zorba. Following the sudden demise of what was one of the UK’s most recognisable MMA Brands, Cage Gladiators, Chris was swift to plug the gaping hole left in the domestic scene with the launch of OMMAC at Cage Gladiators old residence The Liverpool Olympia. OMMAC’s inaugural event OMMAC Assassins, took place on Saturday 8th August.

UFC 101 Declaration

UFC 101 Declaration

UFC 101 Declaration in Philadelphia saw the hefty fight bonuses go to the main event stars.

Anderson Silva and Forrest Griffin were awarded £60,000 each for Fight of the Night

Anderson Silva received an additional £60,000 for Knockout of The Night

BJ Penn landed himself £60,000 for Submission Of The Night for his RNC of challenger Kenny Florian

The fight of the night award seemed a little strange considering the rather bizarre way it ended with Griffin more or less running from the Octagon the minute he regained his composure and got to his feet. Griffin was not present in the Octagon to hear the result not was he at the post fight press conference afterwards.

Anderson Silva has succeeded in making yet another top level competitor appears a slow, clumsy novice. However the method of his victory, a stunning jab to the jaw of the back foot, endeared him once again to the UFC fans who got to witness the classic Silva. Supremely clinical striking and technical wizardry culminating in a deviating knockout.
