Friday Flex welcomes MMA BATTLE ARENA

Leading up to another fantastic Battle Arena main event we welcomed James and Naomi from Battle Arena, Den and Lee from Siam Gym, Josh and Jamie from 1st Legion and Dave and Jonny from Devils Pit.

Date: August 30th 2013, Venue: EAVA FM Studios, Leicester.

James spoke about how excited his team is for this event. The Battle Arena organisation is going from strength to strength. This will be the 24th event held so far. James also introduced Naomi who has joined the team as part of her placement year to help with the event management.

Venue: Club Republic, Leicester
Date: Doors open 2pm Saturday 7th September 2013
Tickets: www.mmabattlearena.co.uk

Naomi's father Den Palmer was up next with his corner man Lee Wills. Den will be fighting title holder Ranjeet Baria. A fighter with 20 years worth of experience, Den is looking forward to this opportunity. Asking him about predictions, Den said the clash of styles will probably mean the fight will not go the distance!! When asked about his opponent, Den said there was a mutual respect between the fighters.

Up next were Jamie and Josh from 1st Legion Fighters. Josh will be facing Liam Corrigan on the night in what is one of the most anticipated fights of the event. It could be argued that this is a battle of the best verses the best. Since meeting him last time, it is evident that Josh is much more focused and intense this time. Looking forward to the fight, Josh is fully expecting a major win. With plans to turn professional in mind Josh wants to make a statement at Battle Arena.

Finally we had Dave and Jonny Gillan come onto the show to discuss Dave's fight. For any in attendance at the last event in Northampton, Dave astonished the crowd by beating his opponent in 4 seconds - a Battle Arena record. Dave was not pulling any punches saying he is looking forward to his fight and is again going for all out action on his way to another victory.

Jonny who is a Head Coach also discussed Devils Pit Gym which is based in Ashby De La Zouch. He encouraged listeners to come down to the gym to try out what it is like.

All the fighters who attended were all very much focused and were looking forward to victories in their bouts. They all spoke highly of the Battle Arena organisation and said it was one of the best promotions around. With more events planned for this year and at least 14 events next year, it is clear to see how popular this event has become.

We want to wish all the fighters the best of luck at the event and want to thank everyone who took time out to visit us in the studio.
