The Friday Flex team goes to MMA Battle Area @ Northants Cricket Ground

Arriving just in time for the first fight, it was great to see the venue was already filling out. Boasting over 20 fights for this event, the action was fast and furious.

Battle Arena, Date: 23rd November 2013, Venue: Northants County Cricket, Northampton.

The Devils Pit gym who joined us in the studio the previous night had mixed fortunes at the event. Amy Durham’s knockout win was one of the event highlights. Phil Tompkins loss was very contentious.

The Heavyweight battle featuring Christian Gogoric and Joey Devit was a fantastic bout which had the entire crowd on their feet with the knock out win for Gogoric.

Lee Rayson was victorious once again with a TKO win.

Speaking to James and Andy throughout the event, it was good to see how MMA Battle Arena is getting bigger and bigger. With events planned all over the UK next year, the future is looking bright.

The Viking Warrior crew were also in attendance once again offering advice and nutritional products for all the fitness freaks in attendance. Veej and Mark were deep in conversation as Veej continues in his quest for a fighter’s physique.

By the half way point, the venue was packed out and people were still coming in. Each fighter had brought their support in full and the crowd enjoyed the action.

This would be the best event I have attended thus far from MMA Battle Arena. The action and the atmosphere were fantastic.

We would like to thank James, Andy and Naomi for making us feel so welcome. We would also like to congratulate all of the fighters who performed at the event. The next event will be back in Leicester in February so make sure you get your tickets early.
