Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen welcomes Sherdog.com British correspondent Mick Bower to “Press Row.”
Bower, the author of "Bloody Revolution: A Journey into UK MMA", discusses a robust slate of British MMA action, including BAMMA 11, UCMMA 31 and Cage Contender's Fight Stars one-night tournament. The two discuss the future of BAMMA headliner Jack Marshman, the strange magnetism and booking of fighter-slash-UK-tabloid-star Alex Reid and who is the likely winner of the Cage Contender lightweight bracket with Andre Winner out of the running.
Breen and Bower also discuss the UFC's changing view of the United Kingdom as a market, how Manchester City soccer factors into the Octagon's, future the farcical nature of “Ultimate Ball,” and the strange charm of Lithuanian journeyman Aurelijus Kerpe.
Grab your credential and get a seat in “Press Row.”
