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.

Does Phil Nurse ever wake up and think why did i leave Manchester??

A fantastic gym in Soho, Manhattan. Trainer to UFC Champ George St Pierre. Called upon to hold pads for Gina Carrano in a boxing ring outside Madison Square Gardens with the Empire State Building in the background on a beautiful blue sky day in New York.

As i look out the window here in Manchester at the rain and grey skies in the middle of July the answer is “Probably not.”

Just six weeks after her decision loss against top ranked UK muay thai fighter Sheree Halliday, Bad Company’s Sarah McCarthy takes the fight to the USA where she takes on experienced American female fighter Roxy “Balboa”Richardson at the Anaheim Convention Centre, Los Angeles, California on the 18th July.

Last week Bad Company’s Richard Smith told Fightnub.com:

“Sarah is looking great in the gym and really looking forward to the fight. Roxy has a lot of amateur experience and has won the  IAMTF US Women’s Lightweight Champion 2008 & 2009. She also does MMA and has her own site – http://roxyfit.com. She’s experience and obviously a local favourite but I think she has bitten off more than she can chew taking on Sarah and against Bad Company!”

Leeds lady McCarthy who looked impressive at Rumble at the Reebok at the end of May, is hoping for a good showing against her American opponent who despite her amateur experience is fighting for the first time under full Thai rules, and has had to look to Europe to take her Muay Thai to the next level.  Speaking to fightnub.com Roxy said:

“I think Sarah is a tough competitor. From what I can tell, she is active, high in the British rankings, serious about training hard and I know she comes to throw down – those are the type of fighters i look forward to competing against. So… game on! I feel strong mentally and physically. My training is challenging and varied as usual. I love training hard, so that’s never been a problem. My fight trainer is Jimmie Romero and my strength coach is Kris Germain. Between the two of them I never question my preparation.

I was able to find many fights as an amateur in California. I have been fighting now for about 6 years and including “smokers” I have almost 20 fights, but there are few female pro Muay Thai fighters in the US, so when I felt it was time for me to fight full rules Muay Thai the promoters had to look to Europe. The system is different here than it is in Europe we don’t’ have A, B and C class fighters, it’s just sanctioned amateur (non-padded) or pro. “Smokers”, unsanctioned bouts with padding are now illegal.

Whatever the outcome we wish both girls good luck, and hope that Sarah can elevate UK Mauy Thai in the states.

Taken from The Sun online

UFC 100 will air LIVE on Sky channel 433, the mixed martial arts promotion has confirmed.

The biggest show in MMA history will also be available live on UFC.com

But for most fans wanting to watch the show on TV, Sky channel 433 will effectively become a UFC channel for nine hours only.

Fans will be able to catch all the action from the biggest fight night of the year completely free of charge.

As an exciting bonus to British fans, Sky Channel 433’s UFC 100 coverage will begin at 9pm, Saturday, as a 9-hour UFC marathon gets underway with all five episodes of the ‘UFC’s Top 100 Fights’.

This will be followed by the official ‘Countdown to UFC 100’ program which then leads into 3am, where the spotlight turns to Las Vegas, as the biggest MMA show of all time goes LIVE.

UK fight fans unable to join the televised action on Sky Channel 433 need not worry, though, for they can also catch every punch, kick and submission at UFC 100 by logging on to UFC.com.

Those fans are encouraged to log-on to UFC.com for details on how they can watch UFC 100 live online.

Included on the historic UFC 100 card are UFC Championship battles between heavyweight juggernauts Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir and welterweight wrecking machines Georges St. Pierre and Thiago Alves.

Plus, Ultimate Fighter coaches collide as British superstar Michael ‘The Count Bisping and former PRIDE champion Dan Henderson throw-down in a middleweight showdown.

Beyond UFC 100, there are further exciting announcements in the pipeline for British UFC fans.
