First Fighting Championship 2 took place last night (Saturday 16th March 2013) at the Alona Hotel in Motherwell. By all accounts it was a fantastic night of Amateur MMA and really cements FFC as an up and coming organisation here in Scotland.
The night’s proceedings saw 2 champions crowned with William McCurdy picking up the FFC Lightweight Title with a 1st round TKO victory over David McDonald and Paul Craig taking home the FFC Light Heavyweight Title following a 1st round submission of Carlos Dunbar via triangle.
Here are the full results from the night:
68kg – Jason McKnight def. Dylan Cameron – R2 – 3:50 – RNC

Submission Of The Night = Craig Derbyshire
I have just heard that submission of the night winner, Craig Derbyshire, was involved in a bad car accident while travelling home this morning to the extent that his girlfriend had to be cut out of the car. Thankfully the news is good and it appears that no body was seriously injured. We hope everyone is safe and well, and that the rest of their journey is less eventful.
