  • CONTENTS

    Well, 2011 is upon us and it already looks like it is going to be an evenbigger and better year than 2010.

    The UFC has merged its WEC francise into its ranks creating two newweight divisions, Featherweight and Bantamweight. That means as theywere both the current holders of these titles, Jose Aldo becomes UFCFeatherweight Champion while Dominic Cruz becomes BantamweightChamp. This will create more competition in the Lightweight divisionalso with two pools of fighters merging into one weight class. And what ofBrock Lesnar? Rumours of a return to the WWE were abound after hisloss to Cain Velasquez. Is it really a possibility or just pure speculation?Read our article on page 48 to find out more. One thing is for sure, Brockhas just been confirmed as a coach on season 13 of the Ultimate Fighter.He will face off against number 1 contender Junior Dos Santos who hasdecided not to wait around for Cain Velasquez to return from injury butinstead put that number 1 contender position on the line and go head tohead with Brock as a coach on the new season and then after in the cageto determine who Velasquez first title defence will be against.

    Closer to home we preview a huge night of fighting as UCMMA kicks off2011 in style on February 5th with its Face Off event. Featuring some ofthe best talent British, and European MMA for that matter, has to offer,including the much anticipated Welterweight title fight between DeanAmasinger and John Maguire, should be one to watch!

    With female MMA taking off more and more all the time we thought itwas right that we should make sure we had it covered with our very ownmonthly column. So please join me in welcoming Fighters latest recruit,Isobel Carnwath. She will be covering everything going on in the scenehere and abroad in her Cage Queen section of the Mag.

    For those of you who have been heading down the gym this January as aresult of those new years resolutions, we have an interesting article thatmight just help you keep up the good start to 2011. The dark winter monthscan be the hardest when it comes to excersise so we have put together ahelpfull and informative piece to help you fight the winter flab. We take alook at some of the things you can do to stay ripped during the off season.

    If Wrestling is your thing, then weve got that covered too! Our Wrestlingnews section should keep you abreast of all the comings and goings whilewe also catch up with our very own Brit Abroad, Nick Magnus Aldis,you might remember him as Oblivion off Sky T.Vs Gladiators series. Hetells us about what hes been upto since he signed up with one ofAmericas biggest wrestling organisations, TNA.

    As well as our monthly catch up with what is happening on the IrishMMA scene in our Irish section we have reports from some of the bestevents from up and down the Bristish Isles, so what are you waiting for?

    Finally, good luck to all our british fighters fighting this month includingUFC patriots, Paul Taylor and Paul Kelly @ UFC 126 and Mike Bispingand Ross Pearson @ UFC 127.

    Keep it locked!
