Richy “The Guv’nor” Knox
Revgear sponsored fighter Richy Knox is looking to start 2013 with a win at top North East Event Made 4 the Cage 9 Night Of Champions against Scottish fighter Rab ‘Baloo’ Truesdale from the infamous Dinky Ninjas team in Glasgow. Richy is confident he can start his year with a win and another title belt to boot after securing the 10th Legion LHW title last year in February 2012.
Richy is currently only 3 -0 Pro MMA but this doesn’t tell the whole story for the highly rated North East fighter; after many years training with another Geordie hero Peter Irving he has earned his brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and each of his three wins to date have come via brutal submissions; in two weeks comes the biggest event to come to the region since UFC 80 back in 2008. We will get to see if Richy can get the win to take him to the top of the UK ladder, fighting in his hometown?
