Saturday 3rd December sees the Scottish Fight Challenge coming to Glasgow’s’ Kelvin Hall Arena for the first time. The previous events have been held in Stirling’s Albert Halls.
With the Welterweight and Featherweight title’s on the line and a further 5 Pro fights on the main card, plus a stacked urdercard full of up and coming talent, SFC5:RIVALS will be the biggest and best card Scottish MMA fans have ever seen.
The event has an early start with weigh in, grappling competition, followed by the main MMA event in the evening.
As with previous MMA events i will be involved behind the scenes looking after the fighters before and after.
This event has something extra as we will demonstrate kettle bell lifting and different ways it can be used to assist in fat loss, and improvement of movement and fitness. You will be encouraged to “have a swing”
The Crosscore 180 (War machine) suspension pulley trainer will also be available to try. This is the new bodyweight trainer you may or may not have heard about. It’s an incredible piece of equipment currently used extensively by the US Military and i can guarantee as one of the first trainers in the UK to use it that if you try it you will love it.
Foam rolling will also be on the cards. This is a type of exercise using foam rollers that can help recovery after exercise and with regular use can help avoid the onset of many common injuries.
If you are there say hello.
