Oli Thompson and Combat Ready Training on Warrior Creed.

Taken from

Recently on Warrior Creed, we have introduced an advertising scheme to help promote ourselves and to help others with their promotion needs. We advertised our new scheme through our various social networks and we have been inundated with a lot of responses.
One that definitely caught our eye was an email from Christian Vila at Combat Ready Training & ZT Fight School. This one particularly grabbed our attention because Combat Ready Training is where current UCMMA Heavyweight Champion, Oli Thompson trains at.

Christian is Oli’s Strength & Conditioning coach and an expert in personal fitness. After his win at the last UCMMA event, you can definitely tell that Thompson was at his physically (and mentally) best.

We welcome this new advertising agreement with Christian & Combat Ready Training and hope to see them very soon.
Don’t forget you can see Oli Thompson defend his UCMMA Heavyweight Title at the next MMA event after May.Take a look at Combat Ready Training’s Blog, for great tips, updates and videos.
Big thanks to Warrior Creed for their shout sure to check them out!

UCMMA champion Oli Thompson to face former Pro boxer Mark Potter


Knockout artist Mark Potter to meet Oli Thompson for Heavyweight

title matchup at UCMMA

Fortuna PR's own Mark Potter will take on UCMMA champion and former
Britain's Strongest man Oli Thompson on June 25th at UCMMA "Stand your
Ground" in London. Mark Potter has made massive waves in the UK
domestic scene with his crisp combinations and knockout power.
Thompson recently claimed the Heavyweight belt in impressive fashion
beating Ben Smith at UCMMA "Lights out".

Mark Potter started out in professional boxing gaining a Pro record of
21-5-0 before heading into the unlicensed boxing scene. Potter would
accumulate an impressive 25-0 record in unlicensed boxing becoming the
EBF champion, finishing all of his opponents inside the distance.
Since hitting the MMA Heavyweight ranks Potter (nicknamed "The Great
White Shark") has finished 4 out of his 5 opponents, an unfortunate
disqualification being his only loss. The manner of the victory's has
led to Potter being singled out as one to watch for the future, making
the respected American web site Bloody Elbow's worldwide top ten
scouting list of Heavyweights. In Thompson, Potter faces the toughest
test of his MMA career and his preparations for the bout are already
under way.

Oli today said:

"So i am defending my UCMMA belt against former pro boxer Mark Potter, 25th June! For the record he is number one contender as confirmed to me by UCMMA before my fight with Ben, a fight that i agreed i would take...i will happily fight Ben again but it was never going to be first defence? 
And i dont make match ups anyway. The fight was very one sided, i found the best way to bounce back from defeat last year to Big Rob was to train harder and learn from it, not to disrespect your opponent".
