It’s almost like a title shot.”

London Calling: Saturation Point
We are in a strange situation here in the U.K. The scene is suffering from an over-saturation of shows, but without the attendees to really push them forward. This point really hit home to me last week when I was covering the Cage Warriors: Enter the Rough House 3 show up in Nottingham – the signs were there, but this was the proof.

Women’s mixed martial arts is continuing to grow with the support of organizations like EliteXC and Bodog Fight putting them on the main stage and showing that they can throw down just as ably as the men can.
