Neil Grove - New Ultimate Challenge HW Champ
LONDON – Having started a new promotion with a clean slate, former Cage Rage brains Dave O’Donnell set up three clashes to determine the new champions in front of a busy London Troxy on Saturday night to close out a turbulent 2008. Here’s how it all went down… Trying to overcome a size deficit to someone like Neil Grove means that you have to be smart, and initially, that’s exactly the strategy James McSweeney implemented having opened his account with a superman punch before concentrating on sticking and moving. Once close, Grove took no hesitation in putting the smaller heavyweight on his back and under his gait, unable to land much in the way of damage, they went back and forth before finding their way to the feet again.

Paul "Semtex" Daley Defeats John Alessio at MFC 19
Paul Daley defeated John Alessio by TKO in the second round at MFC 19 tonight. Alessio spent the first round trying for takedowns while Daley defended very well. It took over a minute before Alessio was able to get the fight to the ground but Daley stayed active on the bottom not taking any damage before eventually escaping back to his feet. As they stood Alessio appeared a bit winded and Daley closed out the round with a takedown of his own. In the second round it was more of the same as Alessio continued to look for the takedown but Daley was able to defend and get separation. At this point Alessio's mouth was wide open and Semtex took over. A few left hooks, a couple uppercuts and a kick which landed mostly knee to face knocked Alessio to the mat. Two big shots later and the ref jumped in to save Alessio from any further damage. It should be noted that Semtex showed up four pounds overweight and had to sacrifice 25% of his purse as a penalty. After the fight Daley said he wants to fight in January for either Sengoku or Affliction.

Is UWC The East Coast's Strikeforce?
Some people learn from success and others through abject failure. Savvy businessmen mix both and add a dash of historical lessons learned by others to make a recipe for success. S. Marcello Foran, the CEO of Ultimate Warrior Sports Development-the parent company of upstart MMA promotion Ultimate Warrior Challenge, seems to be one of those people. He even has a 7-step recipe to make UWC successful.
