We spend a decent amount of time talking with the dudes from Fighters Only magazine, so I’m shocked to learn via their website that our friend Jim is fighting this Saturday in the UK:
When you pick up a magazine or browse a website, you like to know that you’re reading something written by people who know what they are talking about.
With that in mind, Fighters Only staff writer and media personality Jim Burman will be heading into the cage for the first time tomorrow night.
Middleweight marauder Burman (0-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) will be competing on a show staged by the Northern Fight League in Newcastle.
He has been training for several years and has honed an all-round mixed martial arts skillset that he hopes to demonstrate to full effect in tomorrow night’s bout.
That “you’re reading something written by people who know what they’re talking about” bit is funny considering they let several of us Fightlinker people write for them, but past that they really are some of the biggest and bestest fans out there. Good luck Jim, we wish you well! Although considering we’ve been on a bit of a “kiss of death” streak lately, perhaps you don’t want us doing that.
PS: Hywel, if anything happens to Jim this weekend he totally said that I can have his job.
PPS: Jim also needs a fitting nickname. I was thinking of “Burning Jim Burman” or “The Buttman Jim Burman”, but hopefully the jackals will have something good by the time he steps into the cage.
