The former UFC Bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw came into the UFC when he competed on The Ultimate Fighter coached by Trash talking Englishman Michael Bisping & Jason “Mayhem” Miller.Dillashaw would get himself into the finale only to come up short against John Dodson but that wouldnt stop him.After that loss he put 4 wins together before losing a very questionable decision to top contender Raphael Assuncao.After his victory against Mike Easton it was stated that he would challenge then champion Renan Barao were he was a 10/1 underdog everybody assumed that Barao would smoke Dillashaw very quickily but TJ went out and had the performance of his life never put a step wrong and schooled Barao for 4 rounds before stopping him in the 5th claiming the UFC Bantamweight championship.

Cub Swanson a Veteran of 22 fights in the WEC & UFC Cub is one of the most dynamic and powerful strikers in the 145lb division along with black belt level Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Judo skills he is by far one of the most exciting fighters to watch in all of MMA never in a dull fight.coming off a 5 round decision victory over SBG’s Artem Lobov and a fight of the year battle with Doo Ho Choi at UFC 206.Cub holds wins over the divisions elite.

About Us

 

MMA in Newcastle Upon Tyne and the North East generally has grown massively over the last few years and coupled with its boxing heritage it’s truly astounding that the regions capitol city has been without a dedicated Martial Arts and Boxing store for so long. Newcastle was without an MMA store until 2011 when FIGHT STORE Newcastle opened. Since Then we have been a part of the community with the staff and owners all having been involved for many years in the sports we work for. The MMAnewcastle website was originally built purely because of the amount of inquires we received daily about where people could train.
