James Zikic Crowned New World Light Heavyweight Champ

Big shout out to London Shootfighters' own James "The Messenger" Zikic who beat Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos by a decision after 3 punishing rounds to claim the vacant World Light Heavyweight Belt.

Another congratulations to Mark "The Beast" Epstein for his superb KO victory over Roman Webber. Lovely uppercut on the button.

And finally a giant "get well soon" to Alex "The Reidenator" Reid who had a very unlucky clash of shins with Murilo "Ninja" Rua whch opened wounds on both of their legs. Unfortunately Alex came off worst and the fight had to be stopped only 28 seconds into round 1 and had to be taken to hospital to be stitched up. Alex was very unlucky for that to happen and really didn"t deserve it as he had trained very hard for this fight and came out to do business. It was freak incident but it could have been worse. Excellent reffing from Grant Waterman to spot the severity of the wound quickly. We wish Alex the best for a speedy recovery.
