Harry Davies UFC 189. A dampened buzz around the event soon turned into fighting gratification in its purest. Watching this event for the ages on Wi-Fi lagging on and off like a flickering switch, at 5 A.M, whilst on holiday somewhere near Derby wasn’t the comfiest of settings, but what was to follow had me instantly hooked on covering the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.
