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.

Hudson (HandsomeScottHud on Instagram) meets Oliver Vadnais at Global Warriors 3. Hudson talked about his journey to GWFC 3, which consisted of living in Thailand for a year. Hudson shared stories of his travels, which were informative and hilarious, and his views on lady boys. Training out of Para Bellum MMA, Hudson spoke about his coach, Rory McDonell, training partners that are also on GWFC 3 and much more.
