London Calling: UFC & Cage Rage Lock Horns
It appears that MMA is well and truly on the upswing in the UK and UFC madness is taking over… You literally can’t move anywhere in the UK at the moment without seeing UFC due to extensive advertising posters on the bus shelters proudly announcing their UK show in Manchester on the 21st of April.

LeBanner Free To Fight Wherever He Chooses
Date submitted: 08 March 2007

Jerome Le Banner has renewed a contract with the K-1 organisation that will ensure he competes on the world’s most prominent Kickboxing circuit for another four years.
However, bending to Le Banner’s wishes of being able to try his hand in other fields, the new K-1 contract is non-exclusive. According to a Team Le Banner representative, the exclusive nature of his last contract “made our relationship difficult with K-1 in the past.”
This has opened up many new avenues, as Le Banner is not restricted to only fighting on K-1 and it’s MMA branch Hero’s. Le Banner will now be allowed to take MMA fights at Elite XC (where LeBanner likes the ground rules), Bodog who have reportedly been chasing him with a big cheque for a while and the UFC, where he would like to face the likes of Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic and Tim Sylvia.
However LeBanner is unlikely to get to fight in the UFC, as they demand an exclusive contract, something LeBanner is not willing to sign again any time soon.
