0:06:530:06:57

-Cook is quite open. Point-scoring

-punches from the Russian.

0:06:590:07:04

0:08:540:08:58

-in the remaining 30 seconds.

0:10:230:10:26

-A hammer blow from Cook.

0:10:370:10:40

0:11:070:11:09

-Let's hear it for Joe Cook.

0:11:140:11:18

-So strong. I couldn't believe it.

0:11:230:11:25

-I couldn't believe

-how strong he was.

0:11:250:11:28

-I thought because he was taller,

-I'll add power in now. Nope!

0:11:280:11:32

-The game plan

-was to strike with him.

0:11:330:11:35

-I was told he was a good wrestler,

-great on the ground.

0:11:350:11:39

-I started to try and strike

-and tee off against him.

0:11:390:11:42

-I was hoping he'd trade back with me

-but he went for the takedown.

0:11:420:11:47

-My takedown defence is pretty good

-but his wrestling was brilliant.

0:11:480:11:53

-Brett, we've just seen our

-first bout on tonight's Y Ffeit.

0:11:540:11:58

-Cook against Gandaloev from Russia.

0:11:580:12:01

-You picked him out

-as a good wrestler.

0:12:010:12:04

-Joe Cook comes from a good team,

-he's a good striker...

0:12:040:12:08

-..but Gandaloev is a wrestler

-and that was a huge factor...

0:12:080:12:12

-..over three rounds.

0:12:120:12:14

-It was a good fight and Gandaloev

-and myself have similar styles.

0:12:150:12:20

-He likes wrestling boys to the floor

-and uses his ground and pound.

0:12:200:12:25

-I think he has a great style

-and he's a star of the future.

0:12:250:12:29

-The first victory of the night

-for Russia.

0:12:300:12:33

-Next, a battle of Welshman -

-Jones v Simpson.

0:12:330:12:36

-We had an exciting

-first round between these two.

0:12:430:12:46

-Both are happy to trade punches.

0:12:470:12:51

0:12:520:12:54

-Good work from Luke Jones.

0:12:590:13:02

-Simpson on the front foot.

0:13:030:13:05

-He's aiming his kicks

-towards Jones' left leg.

0:13:060:13:11

-That's a tactic we saw

-during the first round.

0:13:110:13:14

-He continues with the tactic

-in the second round.

0:13:140:13:17

-Once again, the back

-of the left leg is the target.

0:13:180:13:21

-Simpson punches Jones

-at the side of the cage.

0:13:210:13:26

-He did well to avoid

-Simpson's punches...

0:13:260:13:30

-..and he came back

-with a right hand.

0:13:300:13:34

-That didn't impede Simpson,

-he returns with a few blows.

0:13:340:13:38

-Simpson is warned

-about using his fingers.

0:13:380:13:43

-Jones did well to avoid those blows

-and came back with a right.

0:13:440:13:48

-40 seconds of the final round to go.

0:13:520:13:54

-Relentless kicking from Simpson.

0:13:540:13:58

-He's like an axe

-cutting down a tree.

0:13:580:14:01

-He's causing Jones a lot of pain,

-as you can see.

0:14:010:14:05

-Jones' left leg

-has turned red and he's limping.

0:14:050:14:10

-Simpson's constant kicks

-have caused Jones a problem.

0:14:110:14:17

-Another kick.

-You can see that Jones is in pain.

0:14:170:14:21

-He's struggling

-at the end of the round.

0:14:220:14:24

-A good left from Simpson.

0:14:250:14:27

-He's alternating fist shots

-with kicks.

0:14:270:14:30

-Another kick to the left leg.

0:14:300:14:33

-The contest is over.

-They both embrace.

0:14:330:14:36

-Jones is in a lot of pain.

0:14:360:14:40

-The winner,

-fighting out of the blue corner...

0:14:410:14:46

-..Ryan Simpson.

0:14:460:14:50

-Hamma! Team Hamma!

0:14:500:14:52

0:15:530:15:56

0:17:560:17:58

-Punch, punch and again.

0:19:130:19:15

-not strong enough to wriggle out.

0:19:170:19:23

-Martin carries on punching.

0:19:230:19:25

-That's it.

0:19:250:19:27

0:19:270:19:30

0:19:330:19:38

-by way of tap out due to strikes...

0:19:380:19:42

-..Becky Martin.

0:19:430:19:48

-Becky,

-you've been inactive for a while.

0:19:530:19:56

-Pro debut tonight, you've got

-to be happy with the performance.

0:19:560:19:59

-I'm happy that I won but I'm

-not happy with the performance.

0:20:000:20:04

-I rushed a little too much.

0:20:040:20:06

-There's a guy to your left-hand side

-who enjoyed your performance.

0:20:060:20:11

-I'm a big fan, like you said,

-it's your professional debut.

0:20:110:20:15

-You got to use elbows,

-that was exciting.

0:20:160:20:19

-I thought you looked fantastic,

-you did very well.

0:20:190:20:22

-What's next for Becky,

-what do you want to do next?

0:20:230:20:26

-Straight back in the gym.

0:20:260:20:27

-Straight back in the gym.

-

-Have got an opponent in mind?

0:20:270:20:29

-No, not at all.

0:20:290:20:31

-Straight back in the gym.

-Awesome stuff, awesome stuff.

0:20:310:20:35

-We won't keep you any longer.

0:20:360:20:37

-Brett and myself

-will have a chat about the fight.

0:20:380:20:41

-Brett, it was all over in the first

-round but it was a good performance.

0:20:430:20:49

-She controlled the fight

-on the floor and used her elbows.

0:20:490:20:54

-Becky was the bigger fighter today,

-she used her strength.

0:20:540:20:59

-She kept the fight on the ground

-and used her elbows.

0:21:000:21:03

-That was the difference,

-she enjoyed doing that in there.

0:21:030:21:07

-Thanks, Brett.

0:21:070:21:09

-Let's meet the man who trains others

-in Huyton, Liverpool and on Deeside.

0:21:090:21:15

-My name's Jordan Barton.

-I'm from Winsford.

0:21:190:21:22

-I work in Deeside and in Huyton.

0:21:220:21:25

-My record is 1-0

-as a professional fighter.

0:21:250:21:28

-I've been in to MMA for years.

0:21:310:21:33

-It was a family thing years ago...

0:21:340:21:36

-..and it progressed through

-watching TV, watching fights.

0:21:360:21:39

-From then, I wanted to fight.

-That's it.

0:21:400:21:43

-I was in Afghanistan in 2010.

0:21:570:22:00

-I got shot in Upper Gereshk Valley.

-I was only 19 at the time.

0:22:000:22:05

-I got flown home,

-spent a couple of years doing rehab.

0:22:050:22:09

-Suffered a little bit with PTSD

-and hit the bottle...

0:22:090:22:13

-..and things like that.

0:22:130:22:15

-To be honest, this is

-my little escape. I train hard.

0:22:150:22:19

-I come down with Jordan

-and have a good session.

0:22:190:22:23

-It keeps me from going to the pub

-and going down that route.

0:22:230:22:26

-For me it's key, to be honest.

0:22:270:22:28

-When I'm here, I love it.

-It keeps me going.

0:22:290:22:32

-For about two years,

-he's trained me on and off.

0:22:340:22:38

-He's such a nice lad, you wouldn't

-think he was an animal in the cage.

0:22:390:22:42

-I've had a look at my opponent. I'm

-confident of looking for a knockout.

0:22:440:22:49

-Barton sounds confident.

0:22:490:22:51

-Joffrey Rabatel from Lyon in France

-is his opponent.

0:22:520:22:56

-This is his second time in the cage

-as a professional fighter.

0:22:570:23:01

-He has yet to win and he's

-five inches shorter than Barton.

0:23:010:23:07

-Hands flat or fists, no fingers.

-Touch gloves, step back.

0:23:080:23:13

-Barton sounded confident

-before this contest.

0:23:160:23:20

-He says he's done his homework.

0:23:200:23:22

-We'll see how he gets on

-against the Frenchman...

0:23:230:23:26

-..who's wearing the black bottoms.

0:23:270:23:29

-The Frenchman goes for the kick.

0:23:300:23:32

-Barton strikes back

-with a knee to the stomach.

0:23:320:23:35

-They're both wrestling

-at the side of the cage.

0:23:360:23:40

-A blow to the head from Barton.

0:23:420:23:44

-Barton's strength

-is staying on his feet to fight.

0:23:440:23:49

-Rabatel is trying

-to grapple Barton to the floor.

0:23:500:23:54

-Barton is back on his feet.

0:23:540:23:57

-He uses the cage to do so.

0:23:570:23:59

-Barton in control.

-A right-handed punch.

0:24:020:24:06

-He has Rabatel against the cage.

0:24:060:24:08

-A right knee and a left knee.

0:24:080:24:11

-Rabatel is on his back.

-The blows rain down on him.

0:24:110:24:14

-The referee has stepped in.

0:24:140:24:16

-He's won the contest in less

-than a minute of the opening round.

0:24:170:24:23

-All the training has paid off.

0:24:230:24:27

-It was a masterclass

-from Jordan Barton.

0:24:270:24:32

-Your winner

-by way of ground and pound...

0:24:350:24:41

-..Jordan Barton.

0:24:410:24:46

-Jordan, one word, impressive.

0:24:520:24:57

-Thank you. To be honest,

-I was hoping to get more time-wise.

0:24:570:25:01

-You can never complain

-getting a win.

0:25:010:25:04

-Experience will come with the time.

-Happy with that, thank you.

0:25:040:25:08

-You've got to happy with the finish.

0:25:090:25:12

-Like I say, when you get

-a full clinch like that...

0:25:120:25:15

-..you're not

-just going to let someone go.

0:25:150:25:18

-My knee landed clean

-and that was it.

0:25:190:25:22

-We've seen from your profile,

-you're engrossed in MMA.

0:25:220:25:25

-You teach it,

-you live and breathe it.

0:25:250:25:28

-I wake up,

-seven, eight o'clock in the morning.

0:25:290:25:33

-I go to work, MMA, all I think

-about until ten o'clock at night.

0:25:330:25:37

-I repeat that five days a week

-and on the weekends I train.

0:25:370:25:41

-That sounds very familiar

-to this man over here.

0:25:420:25:45

-Congratulations,

-go and jump in the shower.

0:25:450:25:48

-You were sitting next to me

-and you said he's going to go far.

0:25:500:25:54

-I've been watching him for a while.

0:25:540:25:57

-As an amateur,

-he made a big noise in the circuit.

0:25:570:26:00

-He's now a professional, 2-0...

0:26:000:26:03

-..I think the big events,

-BAMMA, Cage Warriors...

0:26:030:26:07

-..they'll come knocking.

0:26:070:26:08

-I really think he's an UFC star

-of the future.

0:26:090:26:12

-A bright future ahead of him.

-Thanks, Brett.

0:26:120:26:15

-Let's have a look

-at some of the earlier fights.

0:26:150:26:18

-Callum Bell was stepping into

-the octagon for the first time...

0:26:190:26:23

-..but he looked comfortable

-as he faced Conor Roche.

0:26:230:26:27

-Bell controlled the fight

-right from the outset...

0:26:270:26:30

-..and a flurry of blows

-to Roche's head was enough...

0:26:300:26:33

-..to persuade the referee

-to step in and stop the contest.

0:26:330:26:37

-Keith Hughes from Bangor

-was also making his debut...

0:26:400:26:43

-..against Andy Anderson

-from Wrexham.

0:26:430:26:46

-After trading blows

-in the first round...

0:26:460:26:50

-..Hughes locked Anderson

-into a guillotine choke...

0:26:500:26:54

-..and the submission secured Hughes

-a first win after 1min 19s.

0:26:540:26:58

-Hughes over the moon -

-one fight, one win.

0:26:590:27:01

-Before tonight, neither

-Chay Edward or Mike McGowan...

0:27:080:27:11

-..had won an MMA contest

-so something was about to change.

0:27:120:27:16

-And it did, very quickly,

-as Edwards from Wrexham...

0:27:160:27:19

-..locked his opponent

-in a rear naked choke...

0:27:190:27:22

-..winning the bout in 23 seconds.

0:27:220:27:26

-It was Wales against Poland as Dave

-Barnes took on Kamil Gidaszewski...

0:27:370:27:43

-..in a lightweight contest.

0:27:430:27:45

-This was a bout fought on the floor

-and it went the distance.

0:27:460:27:51

-It was a split decision

-with Gidaszewski taking the honours.

0:27:510:27:57

-Kamil Gidaszewski.

0:27:570:27:59

-Dylan Bargate stepped in at the

-last minute to face Dan Carroll...

0:28:040:28:09

-..in a middleweight contest.

0:28:090:28:11

-This one was over

-as soon as it began.

0:28:110:28:14

-Bargate suffered an injury

-as Carroll took him to the floor...

0:28:140:28:17

-..and the referee stepped in

-after 1m 15s of the first round.

0:28:170:28:21

-Carroll a popular winner.

0:28:210:28:23

-We have a featherweight bout

-after the break...

0:28:290:28:33

-..as Dave Morrison of Wales

-steps into the cage.

0:28:330:28:36

-I think my plan's going to be to...

0:28:380:28:41

-..maybe to box a bit

-and then take him down.

-Street going for it

-early in the bout.

0:29:430:29:46

-He's down!

0:29:460:29:47

-The referee jumps in.

0:29:480:29:50

-Morrison,

-in a little over 10 seconds...

0:29:500:29:54

-..has won the bout.

0:29:550:29:57

-Oh, that left. Well, well, well.

0:29:570:30:00

-In this game, they say accuracy

-is better than power...

0:30:010:30:05

-..and timing is better than speed.

0:30:050:30:07

-If you possess all four,

-it's goodnight for your opponent.

0:30:080:30:12

-Reece Street is back on his feet

-but doesn't know what hit him.

0:30:120:30:16

-A sweeping victory

-for Dave Morrison.

0:30:170:30:20

-Your winner by way of knockout...

0:30:200:30:24

-..Dave Morrison.

0:30:240:30:28

-My coach said cover up,

-he's going to come out swinging.

0:30:330:30:37

-Throw one straight down the pipe

-and you'll catch him.

0:30:370:30:41

-It worked a treat.

-That was the game plan.

0:30:410:30:44

-If that didn't work,

-I'd take him to the ground.

0:30:440:30:48

-A good performance

-by Dave Morrison from Connah's Quay.

0:30:490:30:52

-Back to the cage

-to review the night's other fights.

0:30:520:30:54

-There was strong support

-for Reece Ackers from Wigan...

0:30:550:30:59

-..as he faced Steve Wonderboy

-Webster in a lightweight bout.

0:30:590:31:03

-Webster knocked Ackers

-to the ground in round one...

0:31:030:31:07

-He's turned the bout in his favour.

0:31:120:31:16

-He's wrapped his left leg

-around Webster's head...

0:31:160:31:22

-..in a triangular shape.

0:31:220:31:25

-He's in an attacking position

-and the fists rain down.

0:31:260:31:31

-The right and then the left.

-Webster has nowhere to turn.

0:31:320:31:36

-He's in trouble.

0:31:360:31:38

-Referee Neil Hall stops the contest.

0:31:380:31:41

-Ackers wins his first

-professional bout.

0:31:410:31:44

-It was Liverpool v Lyon

-in this lightweight contest...

0:31:470:31:52

-..as Aarron Johnson

-faced Frenchman Tom Pedreno.

0:31:520:31:55

-Both fighters

-happy to stay on their feet...

0:31:550:31:59

-..and Johnson's fists

-were effective in the first round.

0:31:590:32:03

-It was a kick

-that floored Pedreno...

0:32:030:32:05

-..and his night was over.

0:32:080:32:10

-There were a number of international

-bouts on the fight card...

0:32:190:32:23

-..including a welterweight contest

-of the Polish fighter.

0:32:490:32:54

0:32:570:32:59

0:33:200:33:24

0:33:290:33:33

-He fails in his attempt

-as Pilch rains down the blows.

0:34:240:34:26

0:34:270:34:32

-10 seconds to go.

-He's holding the kimura.

0:34:320:34:35

-He's still pressing.

0:34:350:34:37

-Pilch might be saved by the hooter.

0:34:370:34:42

-Yes indeed.

0:34:420:34:44

-Deschanel fails to complete

-the kimura.

0:34:440:34:49

-Pilch's trainers

-are checking his shoulder.

0:34:500:34:53

0:35:030:35:07

0:35:070:35:11

-Lukasz Pilch from Poland.

0:35:150:35:17

0:35:180:35:23

0:35:230:35:25

-He was very fortunate.

0:35:260:35:28

-Deschanel went for the kimura

-by bending Pilch's arm back...

0:35:280:35:33

-..and pressing down on the shoulder.

0:35:330:35:36

-He failed to complete the move.

0:35:360:35:38

-The referee brought the medic in

-to check that right eye.

0:35:380:35:43

-Deschanel has a lot of swelling

-on his face.

0:35:430:35:46

-He's going straight for it.

0:35:500:35:52

-He's trying to get Deschanel

-to the floor.

0:35:530:35:55

0:36:090:36:14

-Quite a performance by Lukasz Pilch.

0:36:270:36:29

-Deschanel's face took a pounding.

0:36:290:36:33

-I thought the doctor

-would call it off...

0:36:330:36:36

-..but he could see Pilch

-so there was no problem.

0:36:360:36:41

-Early in the second round,

-Pilch showed him who the boss was.

0:36:410:36:45

-TKO victory.

0:36:450:36:46

-Thank you, Brett. Two more bouts

-to come, two international bouts.

0:36:470:36:52

-One will pit Wales against England.

0:36:520:36:54

-Just go as hard as I can as quick

-as I can and try and knock him out.

0:36:560:37:00

-I like to finish fights,

-I like to stand, I like to bang.

0:37:020:37:05

-I'm going to come away with the win,

-no doubt about it.

-There's been plenty of excitement

-in Rhyl...

0:37:270:37:30

-..and the crowd have enjoyed

-the Dawn of the Dragon night.

0:37:300:37:34

-Two fights remain

-and before the main event...

0:37:350:37:39

-..a featherweight bout between

-Daryl Golding and Zsolt Fenyes.

0:37:390:37:44

-Golding in the attacking position.

0:37:490:37:53

-He manages to get his

-left and right hands in.

0:37:550:38:00

-It has to be said, it's been

-a good performance by the Wigan man.

0:38:020:38:07

-He's controlled

-most of this contest.

0:38:080:38:11

-Fenyes from Hungary is on his back.

0:38:140:38:18

-He's trying to keep close

-to Golding...

0:38:190:38:22

-..to stop those heavy blows

-raining down on him.

0:38:230:38:26

-He's defended for most of this

-contest. In goes Golding again.

0:38:280:38:34

-This is constant pressure

-from Daryl Golding.

0:38:410:38:45

-You can see the dragon on his back.

0:38:450:38:49

-Tonight is the night

-of the Dawn of the Dragon in Rhyl.

0:38:550:38:59

-The sun might be setting on

-the hopes of Fenyes from Hungary.

0:38:590:39:04

-Golding should be happy

-with that first round.

0:39:050:39:09

-Both are back on their feet.

0:39:150:39:17

-They've spent a lot of time

-on the floor during this fight.

0:39:170:39:23

-A great move from Golding.

0:39:260:39:28

-Fenyes is on his back.

0:39:290:39:31

-Golding controls from the side.

0:39:310:39:33

-He's trying to expose

-the Hungarian's defence.

0:39:330:39:37

-He's trying to get his elbows in...

0:39:370:39:41

-..in addition to his knee.

0:39:410:39:44

-Golding has controlled

-the Hungarian on the ground...

0:39:510:39:54

-..throughout the contest.

0:39:540:39:56

-As Fenyes attempts

-to get Golding off him...

0:39:560:40:01

-..he leaves himself exposed.

0:40:020:40:04

-Golding can then get the knee in

-to the ribs.

0:40:040:40:09

-Just like that.

0:40:100:40:11

-He's done that more than once

-during this round.

0:40:110:40:15

-He's in complete control.

-The knee goes in once again.

0:40:160:40:20

-The elbow to the head.

0:40:200:40:22

-Golding is being very patient,

-happy to stay in this position.

0:40:270:40:33

-He's controlling and winning points.

0:40:330:40:36

-He's guaranteeing a victory

-in this contest.

0:40:370:40:41

-It's a busy time for Daryl Golding.

0:40:410:40:45

-His partner

-is expecting a baby any day.

0:40:450:40:49

-As I said,

-the Wigan man faces a busy time.

0:40:490:40:56

-He's in complete control.

0:40:580:41:00

-The knee to the ribs.

0:41:000:41:03

-He's used that tactic

-a number of times.

0:41:030:41:07

-Fenyes tries to tie Golding in

-to defend himself.

0:41:120:41:18

-He's been unable to do much

-to impress the judges.

0:41:180:41:22

-By unanimous decision,

-your winner in the red corner...

0:41:260:41:30

-..Daryl Golding.

0:41:300:41:34

-There was no doubt

-about the decision.

0:41:350:41:39

-We wish Daryl Golding

-the best of luck.

0:41:390:41:42

-His partner

-is due to give birth very soon.

0:41:420:41:47

-And so,

-it's time for the main event.

0:41:500:41:53

-Unbeaten Gavin Hughes

-from Liverpool...

0:41:530:41:57

-..takes on Joe Barnett.

0:41:570:41:59

-Barnett accepts the fight

-very late in the day.

0:41:590:42:02

-It's going to be some challenge

-for the man from Colwyn Bay.

0:42:020:42:06

-My name's Joe Barnett.

0:42:080:42:10

-I prefer a stand-up fight.

-I don't like fighting on the ground.

0:42:100:42:14

-I know nothing about my opponent,

-just his name.

0:42:160:42:19

-I'm expecting a tough fight, yeah.

0:42:200:42:23

-Just go hard as I can as quick

-as I can and try and knock him out.

0:42:230:42:27

-My name's Gavin Hughes. I'm 6-0.

0:42:280:42:31

-I was 6-0 as an amateur so unbeaten.

0:42:320:42:34

-I finish fights, stand them, finish

-fights on the ground, submission.

0:42:360:42:41

-I haven't got a weakness.

-I'm an all-round fighter.

0:42:420:42:47

-Whoever I'm up against,

-I'm always fine.

0:42:470:42:50

-Too tough and too strong, I believe,

-for anyone at my weight.

0:42:510:42:55

-I'll go my whole career unbeaten.

0:42:550:42:58

-There's a reason for that.

-He's unbeaten in the cage.

0:43:000:43:04

-Joe Barnet from Colwyn Bay

-is his opponent.

0:43:040:43:08

-He wasn't the original opponent

-but he's stepped in...

0:43:080:43:13

-..at the last minute.

0:43:140:43:17

-We'll have a clean fight.

-Defend yourself at all times.

0:43:180:43:22

-If I ask you to stop,

-you stop immediately.

0:43:220:43:25

-Touch gloves and move back.

0:43:250:43:28

-This could be a fairy-tale

-for Joe Barnett.

0:43:290:43:32

-He wasn't expecting

-to take on Gavin Hughes tonight.

0:43:320:43:36

-We've seen the unexpected

-in the cage and the boxing ring.

0:43:370:43:41

-Barnett has been training

-in the Hamma Wales gym.

0:43:450:43:51

-Many talented fighters

-have come from that club.

0:43:510:43:56

-One of the club's coaches

-is Azi Thomas...

0:43:570:44:00

-..the son

-of former footballer Mickey Thomas.

0:44:000:44:05

-Both are weighing each other up.

0:44:080:44:11

-Barnett moves on.

0:44:110:44:14

-Gavin Hughes with the counterattack,

-a knee to the stomach.

0:44:140:44:18

-And the left. These are

-damaging blows from Hughes.

0:44:180:44:23

-The kick to the head

-but Barnett manages to avoid it.

0:44:230:44:27

-Hughes has the height advantage.

0:44:290:44:33

-Barnett is the heavier of the two.

0:44:340:44:36

-This is a lightweight contest.

0:44:360:44:39

-A good left from Hughes.

0:44:390:44:41

-He's seen his chance.

-He attacks with fists and knees.

0:44:410:44:45

-He has so much variety as a fighter.

0:44:450:44:49

-A good left, then right

-and Barnett is down.

0:44:490:44:52

-Hughes sees his chance.

0:44:520:44:54

-It was a good right

-from Gavin Hughes.

0:44:540:44:58

-Barnett's on his back.

-Hughes controls from the side.

0:44:580:45:02

-He's trying to get

-into a position...

0:45:020:45:05

-..where he can attack once more.

0:45:050:45:09

-He's in an attacking position now.

0:45:100:45:13

-The elbow goes in.

-The fists rain down.

0:45:140:45:16

-Gavin Hughes is on the attack,

-he's relentless.

0:45:170:45:20

-Neil Hall stops the contest.

0:45:210:45:25

-The bout is over.

0:45:250:45:27

-Seven bouts in the cage

-for Gavin Hughes...

0:45:270:45:31

-..as a professional fighter.

0:45:310:45:33

-He's won all seven.

0:45:330:45:36

-That right put Barnett on his back.

0:45:360:45:41

-When Hughes found himself

-in an attacking position...

0:45:410:45:45

-..there was only one way

-this contest would go.

0:45:450:45:51

-Your referee Mr Neil Hall

-called a halt to the contest...

0:45:530:45:57

-..declaring the winner

-by way of ground and pound...

0:45:570:46:00

-..put your hands together

-for Gavin Hughes.

0:46:000:46:06

-Gavin Hughes -

-Joe Barnett came in last minute.

0:46:090:46:13

-A quick word about him.

0:46:130:46:15

-I didn't know nothing about him.

-There was no pressure on him.

0:46:150:46:19

-The first time I seen him

-was when I stepped in.

0:46:200:46:23

-Every fighter knows...

0:46:230:46:25

-..people can use it as a

-strong point against your opponent.

0:46:250:46:29

-I haven't seen nothing of him,

-there's a lot of footage of me up.

0:46:290:46:33

-The first time I saw him

-was facing the cage.

0:46:340:46:36

-He was trying to get that

-one punch and a hope.

0:46:370:46:39

-This means a lot to me,

-this is my career.

0:46:400:46:42

-7-0, unbeaten,

-unbeaten as an amateur as well.

0:46:420:46:45

-UFC is looking for exciting

-fighters. You slot into that list.

0:46:450:46:51

-I think I have the whole package -

-I don't think, I know I have.

0:46:510:46:55

-I leave it to my coach,

-my coach is the main man.

0:46:550:46:59

-Go on, Gav, jump in the shower.

-Cheers, thank you.

0:46:590:47:03

-You liked what you saw then.

0:47:030:47:05

-The situation was difficult

-for both fighters...

0:47:050:47:08

-..but you can't help looking at him

-and think he could go far.

0:47:090:47:13

-To be honest, I see Gavin as

-a grappler, he's a strong grappler.

0:47:130:47:18

-Today I saw him boxing.

-I think he's on the UFC radar.

0:47:190:47:24

-I'm not sure what Gavin wants to do

-but he should go for a world title.

0:47:240:47:30

-Thank you, Brett.

0:47:300:47:32

-That's it from

-the Pavilion Theatre in Rhyl.

0:47:330:47:35

-We're back in the cage at the

-Grand Theatre in a fortnight's time.

0:47:350:47:39

-the boxing ring in Ebbw Vale.

0:47:390:47:42

-weren't quite hot enough.
