More medals at the UMA Groundfighting event!

Once again, another very successful day out for the lads at Jim Mc Sherry's Groundfighting event, held over the weekend of August 27th. Jim ran two events on the same day, with gi and no gi groundfighting, which attracted clubs from Gracie Barra, Checkmat, The Combat Academy, Tamworth BJJ, Pure MMA, Chris Rees Academy and many more.

The level of skill on the mats was second to none and there were many closely contested fights on both mats, with excellent sportmanship from all competitors.

Lee 'Demolition Man' James, continued his winning streak with yet another gold medal in his third competition, maintaining a 100% record, Parabens! Mitchell 'Maximus' Richards picked up bronze medal in the no gi event and Tony Riley grabbed the gold medal, dominating his weight group with some solid jiu jitsu.

In all, the lads bagged four gold, four silver and one bronze medal, a great achievement and Combat Base Bolton took the club trophy with a total of 43 points and Ng Gar Tien took third place with 25 points.

Congrats to Lee James, Mitchell Richards, Steven Holt, Jay Watts, Adam Berry, Ed Kelly, Matt Philips, Tony Riley and John Martin for a superb performance :) The next event with the UMA will be the BJJ event on October 22nd, so see you there!
