IRON GYM™ Ultimate Challenge MMA (UCMMA) is the battle ground for Europe’s most talented MMA athletes and the IRON GYM team was lucky enough to have ringside seats for UCMMA 37, a top drawer fight night featuring 11 explosive clashes between the most exciting mixed martial arts fighters in the business.

The night got off to a subdued start with the announcement that Darren Towler had been forced out of his heavyweight title clash at the top of the bill (against Paul Taylor) but spectators shouldn’t have worried as the fights on the undercard provided more than enough action for all in attendance.

Fight of the night, in the team’s opinion, was Marco Santos vs Athinodoros Michailidis, the Brazilian stepping into fight his Greek opponent only 3 days before and arriving the morning before the main event. Santos displayed all his eye catching Muay Thai skills, landing a great combination of kicks and punches to sweep the judges scorecards, much to the dismay of Michailidis’ great travelling support.

After a short break, next up is UCMMA 38 on 1st February at which Alex Reid will be facing off against Tony Giles, which sure to be a great battle - between two of the best strikers in the cage.
