On Saturday Marcelo visited Middlesbrough again a place he had recently been demonstrating Luta Livre in his seminar a month or two earlier, yet again it was Team Redemption that enjoyed his knowledge and the art of Luta Livre which everybody seems to be realising is a Martial Art on the rise. Marcelo then travelled to Doncaster on Sunday to show another team what Luta Livre was about with some great submission offence and defence learned, I am sure Team Asylum and Team Redemption will no doubt be wanting to learn more from Marcelo shortly.

OMMAC returned on Saturday as some of Liverpool's local fighters entertained a good crowd. Three Kaobon fighters were in action however, all eyes were on Uche Ihiekwe who was set to feature in his first professional bout and he stepped up to the standard with no problems as he won via armbar in the first minute of the first round defeating Swansea independent fighter Mark Jones. More impressive was the win for Greg Severs (semi pro) who won by Achilles lock also in the first minute of round 1 also against another Swansea independent fighter Jamie Barrett.
The third fighter to feature for Kaobon was Jay Manning who was set to face a guy who had previously beaten two of Manning team mates in Lee Chadwick & Jay Gladden however, as Manning looked to make sure he wasn't another name on Ronan McKays list of Kaobon fighters but it wasnt to be as he was outclassed by a tough guy and all round fighter. Two titles changed hands in what was a very entertaining night as the fight of the night in most peoples opinions must of been the Featherweight class between two talented fighters in Dave Hill (Elements MMA) and Ashleigh Grimshaw (Team Titan).

On Sunday another day for the average guy passed by but for Team Kaobon and Marcelo Brigadeiro it was another day for learning and another day to spread the word of Luta Livre. The seminar consisted of some transitions from a takedown to submission some neck cranks, leg locks and some of Brigs special submissions only those who took part were able to witness. The seminar attracted a few different nationalities ranging from Scottish to Slovakian. Everybody was happy with the seminar and felt they got some valuable experience.
