    Sarah – can I assume no relation to Shaun or do you two just not get along? Married perhaps?

    – My money is on Sarah submitting Shaun’s wallet in the first round forcing a tap out :)

    For all of you that are trying to get acquainted with the Island Fight scene, Mid Island – Nanaimo and area
    the stable of Don Arnott – Tomari trains some pretty solid fighters. He also promotes the So YOu Wanna Fight card that a few of the boys from the Saturday event got there start from. So You Wanna Fight is happening on November 22 out in Cedar last I heard. Nanaimo also supports Impact MMA and some of their boys are on the show as well. Pederec’s Promotion is pretty solid out of Victoria. There are a few up and coming clubs popping up as the MMA scene’s growth is gaining a lot of popularity on the Island.
