There weren’t a lot of people outside of his native England giving Luke Barnatt a chance against Andrew Craig (myself included). However, the Ultimate Fighter 17 alumnus never really looked lost, hurting Craig on more than one occasion while standing before ultimately tapping him out. His nickname may be “Bigslow” but it’s clear Barnatt’s ascension as a middleweight prospect should be a fast one so long as he keeps improving on what he displayed in front of his fellow Brits.
MMA fans looking for a little afternoon delight found it today in the form of UFC Fight Night 30. The event was broadcast live on FOX Sports 2 from Manchester, England and offered up some excellent action for those tuning in. Now that the smoke has cleared, four competitors have emerged with an extra $50,000 due to their performances at the show in addition to numbers relating to the box office.
