The 4th of February will see Britain’s flashiest MMA promotion host its landmark 50th event, which will take place nowhere other than its East London home – The Troxy.
Its business as usual at UCMMA 50, where its rabid and loyal fans are set to be treated to a night of MMA action with a healthy sprinkling of K1 kickboxing bouts. There are scores to settle, hype videos and mean-spirited face offs to indulge in, and come next month it will all culminate into the uniquely British free-for-all that we have grown to expect and learned to love.
The main event will see everyone’s favourite veteran and current UCMMA light-heavyweight champion Denniston Sutherland square off against London Shootfighters mainstay Arunas Andriuskevicus. Despite being on the wrong side of 40 years old, Sutherland is on a three fight winning streak with three first round finishes. Andriuskevicus will be looking to continue his successful return to the sport with second win since his four year hiatus between 2011 and 2015.
Another standout fight on the card is the K1 bout between David Round and Terry Brazier. This fight follows Round’s retirement from MMA, based on his yearning to fight under K1 rules only. If aren’t familiar with Round, you may see this as a step backwards in his career but take one look at his 15-20 record and things may start to make sense. He is the ultimate wild-man, taking fights at any moment’s notice and at any weight, often to his detriment. The vast majority of his losses have come via submission and the vast, vast majority his wins come by KO courtesy of his incredibly powerful hands. This is a man who truly has no fucks to give, and the prospect of him in a striking-only contest is exciting to say the least. He will face Terry Brazier, who is on a six fight winning streak in his young career. He is well schooled and also has a great amateur record. A K1 bout against Round will be a good test of his striking skills against an aggressive, powerful but beatable fighter.
The Sprawl will be in attendance come the 4th of February and needless to say, it’s a night that we’re most certainly looking forward too. See the full fight card and promotional videos below. We particularly recommend the Ben Earl vs. Paul Webster promo.
