Fight Scene 2.1 Event Report
by Jimmy Page

In the main event, tough-as-nails BKK fighter Jason Cooledge took on the Wildman from the West Country, Craig White. In previous battles, Cooledge has shown that he is both vicious and resilient. It made sense for him to push the fight and he charged in for a body lock in the opening seconds, searching for a takedown.

White defended well, pushing his foe away. Cooledge responded by shooting in the exact same way; it proved to be fatal. The Exmouth fighter seized hold of a tight guillotine and clung on to it as Cooledge thrashed around, forcing the tap and sealing a magnificent first round win for the Lion’s Den representative.

Highly touted, Max Nunes continued his steady progress as he dispatched Milad Mahmoodi with one second remaining in the first round.

In the early going, Nunes was forced to defend a guillotine from his heavily muscled opponent, who then took him down. Nunes was unconcerned; he stood back up and punched his opponent across the cage with a thunderous straight left.

The New Wave representative followed with a barrage of punches which led referee, David Swann, to step in and save Mahmoodi with only one second of the round remaining.

Up next, internet legend Jay Darrell Ingleton made his long-awaited pro MMA debut. Words cannot fully describe the magnitude of this occasion. You can’t fault the man, he’s strong, he’s determined; he shot in, grabbed his opponent, Fadi Jameel and stuck him into the fence.

Jameel, however, responded by taking Jay to the floor and seizing his back. It was hard to watch. Fadi banged in some brutal punches, followed by a hard, chopping right elbow which landed slightly behind square on Ingleton’s head.


Jameel lands some heavy punches

Immediately, the ref warned Jameel of the offence but Ingleton was in trouble after the accumulation of blows and tapped. Fair enough, he took a beating.

Dean Turner is a live wire! Seconds before his fight, his corner told him the cage belonged to him, it was his home and opponent, Alan Cooper was an intruder; a burglar. Dean wasn’t messing about; he exploded in for a takedown, worked for it and obliterated his opponent with punches in 103 painful seconds.

In a back-and-forth ground fight, Alex Montagnani over-powered and stopped Monsta MMA representative, Brad Watchorn with a barrage of hard punches from mount position. Nasty beatdown finish.


Montagnani: winner by smash

Warning to anyone who hasn’t seen this guy fight – Mike Nuen is a wrecking machine. In a semi-pro bout, he steamed into Frankie Hale with punches and tapped him with a guillotine in one minute flat.

In a cage kick-boxing bout, abundantly skilful kicker, Marcus Powell attacked with varied combinations and some vicious knees to claim a unanimous decision over tough, composed 17-year old warrior, Vinnie Church.

In a wild fight which had the crowd screaming, James Daley fought his heart out to claim the win over an extraordinarily muscled fighting-machine in the shape of Celso Da Silva.

The Brazilian was docked a point for landing multiple low blows and later was even dressed down for eye-gouging.

Hats off to Daley who managed to keep cool, land some hard strikes and takedowns and he walked away with a unanimous decision victory.

In a catch-weight semi-pro bout, Dan Pratt quickly blasted Andrew Martin out of sight in only 17 seconds.

In an ill-advised charity bout, a less-than-svelte aging pugilist, Phil Newman was smashed to pieces on the floor in 82 seconds by opportunistic marauder, Matt Da Silver.

The fight wasn’t the most clinical display, but the charity is definitely worth supporting, please make massive donations to:
