Why go to Ultimate Impact 12?
Tonight at GL1 lesiure centre we return with one of finest fightcard ever put togther by match maker Paul Sutherland. The card feature some of the very best up and coming K1 and MMA fighters from around the Midlands and South West region. Ultimate Impact 12 kicks off at a slightly earlier time of 4.30pm featuring 4 amatuer MMA and K1 amatuer bouts, and the main card starting at 5.30pm One of our good media partners Split Decision was kind enough to give some of the fighters on the card some media exposure and here is what they had to say;
Phil Wells: “I predict it will be a good fight” This weekend see’s Ultimate Impact return with their 12th installment, with three main event title fights, and set to defend his Welterweight Championship is Phil Wells.
Sophie Tidey: “I never underestimate any fighter” Taking to the cage at Ultimate Impact 12 this weekend is Sophie Tidey who takes on Camille Sch in an amateur K1 bout and could easily take away fight of the night honors.
Aaron Khalid ahead of UIC 12: “Its an honour to be fighting on it” UIC 12 takes place this weekend with a bumper line up of fights, live from the G1 leisure centre in Gloucester. Competing on the card is Aaron Khalid who looks to showcase his ever developing skill set and ahead of his match up, I caught up with him to get his thoughts on his fight …
Jack Price: “I will be looking to control the fight” Jack Price is no stranger to the Ultimate Impact show, after competing on the promotion in the past, and this weekend he returns to the show fight in a K1 bout.
Terry Doyle: “I’ve trained my ass off for this fight and I’m coming to win” This coming weekend see’s Ultimate Impact host their 12th show, with a packed line up of fights, and one of the championship fights on the evening features Terry Doyle as he aims to take home the lightweight championship.Checkout our hashtag #UIC12 on twitter: Ultimate Impact 11 was a great event and those that were there will certainly 2nd that... for those that were here is a preview of what went down, and why UIC12 will be yet another great event Here is a breakdown of the fightcard for tonights event: Current UIC welterweight champion Phil Wells fighting out of Swindon Vale Tudo will make his first defence after an impressive and dominate performance at UIC10 when he beat Rob Leybourne with an impressive TKO finish. Looking to take the belt from Phil is highly touted Adam Bousiff fighting out of Force MMA under veteran head coach Daz Jones. Adam scored one of the quickest finishes in Ultimate Impact history when he TKO'd Chris Astley following a pin point accurate hook and followed up with some heavy hammer fists before Leon Roberts stepped in! In our first female championship fight Laura Handy and Cheryl Fylnn will take to the cage to become the first ever UIC K1 champion! Laura has been on a tear recently winning her last 4 fights all of which have been at Ultimate Impact Events and has shown a determination that is rarely seen. Her style mean that she never takes a backward step and just keeps coming round after round until her hand is raised at the end. However she will be taking on Cheryl Flynn who arguably has more technical striking and also keeps coming forward. Cheryl is known for her agressive and high volume style so this match up is set for fireworks and which ever lady takes it will have certainly earnt it. Venteran UIC lightweight champion Wayne Drake seems to improve each and every time he steps inside the Ultimate Impact cage and is the perfect example of someone who does his talk inside the cage. Always very well prepare Wayne will most certainly have a grappling advantage over the heavy hitting challenger Terry Doyle. Terry has knockout power in both hands and Ultimate Impact fans will know all about it! This is a true grappler vs striker match up and I personally can not wait to see who comes out the champion. The rest of the card is as follows: Chris Astley v Toby Hartman Craig White v Jon Williamson Mark Finney v Aaron Khalid Jack Shore v Piotr Egert Matt 'George' Hartill v Bryn Cooper Cadre Abdulafur v Duane Barnes Undercard: Mason Carter v Nathan Powell Camille Sch v Sophie Tidey Lawrence Coates v Jack Price Thomas Karpinski v Greg artis Raymond Nelmes v Dan Reeves Doors open at 4pm and the first fight is at 4.30pm, with the main card starting at 5.30pm.
