ALEX ‘REIDINATOR’ REID V JASON ‘BADASS’ BARRETT
August 6th - Live on Primetime
Alex says: ‘I will beat Jason down, this will be more than just a fight worth watching, I'm going to rip up that cage and feed it to him’
(London, 11th July 2011) It was today confirmed that Cage Rage veteran and the most famous face in UK MMA Alex Reid, will sensationally come out of retirement to face Jason ‘Badass’ Barrett in a grudge match that has been boiling for a number of months. Fans can watch these two warriors go head to head at UCMMA 22, August 6th, live at Troxy London and available on PPV at Primetimelive.co.uk.
Having sworn to give up the gloves pursuing an acting career, Alex ‘The Reidinator’ Reid will return to silence his critics in this ‘Super Title Fight’ Middleweight bout that has fans across the UK salivating.
Reid and Barrett have had a number of meetings outside of the cage, and it finally came to a head at UCMMA 21 when the two had an altercation in the cage, leading to UCMMA Promoter, Dave O’Donnell, to sanction the fight between to the adversaries.
Reid said: ‘In Rome the Gladiators fought to the death, mentally it’s the same game in MMA, my motto - Keep the End in View - ‘Respece Finem’ is part of my code of honor - I will live to fight another day, I can't same the same for Jason but I salute his bravery. I will do whatever it takes to get me in premium fighting condition, I will beat Jason down, this will be more than just a fight worth watching, I'm going to rip up that cage and feed it to him.’
UCMMA promoter Dave O’Donnell said: ‘Let me tell you, I’ve seen Jason Barrett and he is like a man possessed. He was in the gym at 4am today and he has been training for 12 solid weeks while Alex has been living the celebrity lifestyle. Everybody knows you can have all the technique in the world but if you haven’t got the stamina or the minerals to go three rounds then you’re going to have a lot of problems. I know Jason has been doing hill runs and has been doing anything he can to make this fight happen.’
Primetime Boss David McConachie said: ‘Primetime are excited to be able to bring this fight to the UK public live building on the success we have had with our previous MMA broadcasts. It’s the first time a UK MMA promotion has secured a PPV deal and we hope that it’s very successful.’
