The Full Contact Contender 2015 took place this past weekend (5th March) in Bolton and we were once again very proud sponsors of this great fighting event! It was the first FCC event of 2016 and really kickstarted things nicely.
MMA Matting provided all the cage padding (see photos) along with plenty of matting for the warm ups.
The card, which culminated in a double main event, featured an array of amateur and professional talent and the fans in attendance were treated to an action-packed evening. Top of the bill was a lightweight clash between Cannock’s Tim Wilde and Scotland’s Martin Delaney in a contest to determine the FCC European champion, and it was Wilde who emerged with the belt after a tremendous, career-best performance.
And boy was it worth it. Both men entered the contest in good form, with Wilde victorious in his last two outings, whilst Delaney, had won an impressive 11 of his last 12. It took a moment for someone to fully engage and fully commit in to the first proper attack, but once it came, it came. Wilde landed his first big punch on Delaney, who to his credit, got back up when so many other fights would have been KO’d. It did take its toll though and when the second big punch connected followed by a relentless onslought it was all over and Wilde was announced the winner.
Each year seems to get bigger and better every time and it sure was this year. Both professional and amateur fighters got given the chance to show who is the toughest in the cage with some stellar performances from Brenadan Loughnane and Tim Wilde on the professional side and from the likes of Mark Kinsella and Antonio Sheldon.
