Team Phoenix members were in action in Sunderland last night at Rise and Conquer mma show. Carl was first up, unfortunately he took a lightning fast head kick early on which put him down. But he was up and smiling shortly after. After a delayed fight, Rob was up next. He had a great fight, with a very well matched opponent. After lots of throws and submission attempts Rob lost the decision but has gained some valuable experience and can be proud of his performance.
Last up was Curtis. After a long wait Curtis made his debut appearance, walking in to Celine Dions My heart will go on. This roused the crowd, lead by the Phoenix gang into a wonderful sing along!
After a fast and furious start and a very near knee bar, Curtis was stopped with a barrage of punches. He will be back with a vengeance next time!
0-3 result this time but we have learned alot and are ready to get back to the gym and get ready for the next time!
It was a fantastic day on a very well run show. The Team Phoenix fight team were even treat to a Paul Gregson history tour of Sunderlands parks!
Was wonderful to see so many members rock up to support the guys. Thank you all!
