John signs multi contract

Martial arts star John Maguire from Wisbech St Mary has been signed up by the Ultimate Fighting Championship for a multi fight contract.

His first fight will be on UFC 138 in Birmingham on November 5.

Maguire fights out of the professional MMA gym (Tsunami) based in Cambridge and UFC is an American mixed martial arts promotion company and the largest in the world, hosting the majority of the top ranked fighters. It holds numerous events worldwide.

He also regularly visits local mixed martial arts club Avaddon at the Hudson Sports Centre and took a well-attended two-hour session last Monday, showing some of the techniques that have been so successful in his own career so far.
