Totally forgot to post it here as was too busy celebrating but seriously what a great effort by all the team. In total 12 fighters travelled to Bristol to compete and we came back with a massive haul of medals, 6 of which were gold – helping to make UK ICON Team achieve 2nd place overall in the team standings which is a massive achievement!
The team showed great spirit and supported each other throughout a very long day of competition but what a result!!!
Congratulations to everyone who put it all on the line and left nothing on the mat, well done! And a special congratulations to Imran ‘Zola’ Salam who won the coveted and hotly contested ‘Fighter of the Day’ award for his amazing performances which included some fantastic technical takedowns, a show of incredibly tenacious determination all topped off with a spectacular chokehold finish to make one of his opponents tap-out.
