Following last night’s event, ROAR Combat League would like to thank everyone involved in making it happen. From the gyms and fighters to the team of staff and helpers who helped create what was a superb event. Feedback from people that attended the show has been phenomenal with some describing it as the most entertaining show they have ever seen.
Special mention to Christian Knowles and Katie Rishover who have created a fantastic brand that sets a high bar for Muay Thai. Also Steven Broome for helping set the stage. Finally everyone that supports our events, a big thank you. ROAR Combat League are truly blessed with the atmosphere that Edgbaston Stadium fans create. Many of you buy tickets every event and it is, I believe, a standout show and unique crowd.
Next event is April 6th and the wheels are already in motion for what promises to be a special Roar Combat League ?
LEIGH EDLIN WROTE:
Two great performances so far – Toon just lost to a more experienced opponent after a fantastic battle and Ces achieved a unanimous win using sharp teeps, round kicks and sharp knees. Very proud!
Sam Hyde didn’t get the result last night. He put on a great show against an extremely tough opponent but most definitely did not show his A game. Not taking anything away from Cian as he is clearly a great fighter with a huge fight career ahead of him. As you would expect Sam is cutting through his disappointment with a champion mentality, already planning his next steps as he becomes the fighter I know he can be.
Funniest moment of the day – pre post fight interview, Sam stopped the interviewer so he could get a drink as he “didn’t want to sound like that Simon Forrest on camera”. We all had a laugh and heard from the Roar presenter how post weigh in interviews will be no more due to the gibberish incident… legendary!!

Steve said: “So as much as I’d like to say that after a hard fought bout yesterday I came away with a win, unfortunately this wasn’t to be the case. I was caught with heavy leg kicks in the first round taking it out of action and was unable to continue. I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone that wished me luck and especially those that traveled to support me.
With a hostile local crowd it meant the world to me. After seven weeks of hard training I’d also like to thank Kru Leigh Edlin, Kru Brian Pawsey, Fight Specifix and Max Skidmore for all their help in my training. Most importantly the never wavering support of my amazing wife Lisa… Much love to all”.
