Congratulations to Thomas Sweeney (LC2) who is finding great success in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). He has competed at novice level and in December 2021, he made his amateur debut which is the final step before becoming professional. He really enjoyed the experience but for now he is focussed on sharpening his skills and learning more before he takes another amateur bout. At the weekend, he won the 70kg division in the National League (Novice). His plan now is to continue to compete in MMA but also to branch out and take fights in other disciplines (kickboxing and jiu jitsu) so that he can focus on improving the individual aspects of the sport. Following that he will be back on the amateur circuit with a view to eventually making it in the professional ranks.
