Secrets of the UFC.

Very few people get the chance to spend a few hours backstage of a UFC event. During UFC99 in Cologne I spent the duration of the undercard in the British fighters locker room. Dan Hardy, Paul Talyor, Terry Ettim and Paul Kelly were sharing the warm-up area.
The atmosphere was much calmer than I had expected with each fighter going about his pre-fight routine without fuss. There was a sense of respect between the fighters, each one supporting the other and no one wanting to let down the other Brits. Each of the 4 Brits recorded victories at the event.
