Michael Hobbs (3-1-1) vs. Ian “Mongoose” Jones (2-0-0)
Aaron Barrow (3-1-0) vs. Dan Hardy (2-2-0)
Tengiz vs Monson in my mind is a UFC eliminator, with both men beign in great form through 2004. Tengiz ended the unbeaten streak of James Thompson with awesome display of ground and pound and is on a 2 year unbeaten streak himself with 12 straight wins.
Paul Daley is looking for a fight after spending a month at ATT HQ with his team mate Dan Hardy. Fresh off a win over Jess Liaudin on Saturday, Daley is looking to make it 11 straight wins in MMA/kickboxing action since Dec 03. Daley's original opponent Abdul Mohamed pulled out due to cuts he sustained at Cage Rage 9 on Saturday.
Shooto Japan vet Gesias “JZ” Calvancanti looks to make it 2 wins in 2 months when he takes on Ollie ELlis who is unbeaten in Cagewarriors action, and took Jean Silva to a draw at Cage Rage 7 in July (in a fight many people thought Ellis won.)
This is a stacked UK card, with 4 top title matchs, 2 international superfights and 2 domestic clashes, This card will wrap up a great 2004 in style for UK MMA and for Cagewarriors
