Interview surgery performed by Dr Jim Capper. http://jimc85.wordpress.com/ MMA has long suffered the stigma of those calling it 'Barbaric' and 'Brutal'.

A ferocious fighter with a proven pedigree...

Michael D Aguiar: Evolution, Not Revolution

Friday 6th June 2014

I think it's fair to say that Michael D'Aguiar isn't what most people would expect of an MMA fighter. He's well spoken, has a BA in Magazine Journalism & Feature Writing & looks more like a Portuguese pop star than a trained killer; but don't let looks deceive you.

Friday 23rd May 2014

You couldn't get further from the truth with most MMA fighters. Someone once referred to rugby as a game for hooligans played by gentlemen. Well I'd say MMA is a sport for psychopaths populated by the honora...
