Thanks to James Fisher for this article.
Tom Enstone and James Fisher took a road trip to Leicester so Tom could compete in the multiple award winning UK MMA League,
Tom Enstone TMA against Rob Adams From SJ MMA – Both fighters headed straight for centre of the cage, locking in a clinch Adams threw a barrage of body shots that would have fell a lesser opponent but Enstone continued unfased, breaking from the clinch throwing some solid legs kicks and a couple of knees. This back and forth exchange went on for a couple of minutes, Enstone started to press his opponent against the cage but during the clinch got caught in a headlock, Enstone worked his way to his opponents back while still in a head lock, He secured a nice take down and worked from side control to full mount, Enstone worked on several submissions while still maintaining the mount, he the got rolled and spent the last minute or so on his back in full guard, Both fighters where very strong had good attacks and nice submission defense this made it hard for either to secure a victory but showed they both worked at a good level.
Tom Enstone TMA against Vladimir Dvorak from Blackdog MMA – This was a good fight Enstone came out the corner with intent, throwing some heavy kicks then getting the Clinch, Enstone secured a takedown and started to work side control to mount, Dvorak defended well and attempted submission via arm bar, Enstone stayed cool and calm defending well stacking Dvorak to stop a full arm bar, Enstone then got swept but locked arms to avoid Dvorak securing the submission. Enstone then rolled into Dvorak breaking the sub attempt and getting half guard working to side control, Enstone threw some knees to soften his opponent and gain full mount. A few times Dvorak worked into half guard but Enstone maintained a good base avoiding getting sweeped and making several submission attempts, Enstone was dominant in this bout and listened to corner advice well. Credit to Dvorak as he was continualy trying to escpape and defended sub attempts well.
This was a good day out, we met some great teams and future MMA stars.
