Tickets £35-60, would appreciate all the support” and posted a video of him working the switch kick on the back foot.

The full squad was out on Friday with Grace Spicer and Bilal Remassy also making their way to West Yorkshire under invitation from Bad Co. The picture that the gang shared on social was a star-studded collection of elite-level UK fighters.

Liam Harrison, James France and Andy Howson were all there to put the guys through their paces with lots of rounds of sparring, sweeping, pad whacking and lots of laughs. The social media posts have been really entertaining to watch and follow along with.
