Global Warriors matchmaker Woodrow James and GWFC 3 lightweight combatant Scott Hudson joined Rear-Naked Choke Radio host Jason Kelly (@JayKellyMMA) and guest co-host Alex Gasson (@PeckingClaw) to discuss the making of an MMA card, battling the Ontario Athletics Commission, training abroad, the walk of shame in Thailand and Global Warriors 3 (@GlobalWarriorFC).
Global Warriors 3 takes place June 24 at the Brantford Civic Centre in Brantford, Ontario, Canada, and the event features a plethora of Ontario mixed martial artists.
James (@WoodrowJames88), a mixed martial artist himself, has worn just about every hat possible in combat sports. He’s fought, coached, cornered, managed, played matchmaker and consultant for promoters throwing an MMA event in the province. James detailed the headaches he endures trying to secure bouts for Global Warriors 3 and almost every other MMA event put on in Ontario. With many regional shows, last-minute changes are expected. James provided an updated fight card for Global Warriors 3 and let us know which fighters to keep an eye on that evening. James explained the reason for the card being moved form it’s original May 28 date to June 24.
