The growth of MMA over the last few years has been huge.
Outside the traditional MMA hotbeds of Brazil and North America, nowhere has seen as much growth in terms of fighters, fans, and knowledge, as the UK.
MMA is finally getting covered by mainstream media and the UFC has a TV deal on a major network. This is of course, on the back of the UFC's repeated visits to the UK, to host live events.
But for me, the real evidence in the growth of MMA, is in the success of the fighters and how well some of the UK based talent is performing.
The UK now has three TUF season winners, has had a fighter challenge for a UFC title and has some of the most respected MMA gyms in the world.
So lets take a closer look at the guys who are carrying this growth and have had, or are having, a big impact on MMA in the UK.
