By his own admission in our podcast (below), Greg admits to battling his own personal demons at the time, and is perfectly candid about his state of mind in at the time. But following several more experienced MMA fighters in the local area turning down the debut fight with Aaron Chalmers of Geordie Shore fame, Greg found himself receiving the call to go to battle.

On accepting the fight Greg runs through what happened with the pre fight drugs tests and medicals which will shock you.

From what is said it begs the question whether MTV and BAMMA aware of the issues with the medical and drugs test pre fight? Further to this, he discusses the significant worries about the fight going ahead due to the issues with the weigh ins.

Greg gives a honest testimony to his life thus far, funny stories from the UK fight scene, and the incidents surrounding the infamous BAMMA debut. This is a MUST WATCH for fight fans.
