Scott Wins LFC Title!

On Sunday 13th March, UFO sponsored athlete ‘Super’ Scott Butters made his return to the cage at Lion Fighting Championships 7 in Kent, in a highly anticipated rubber match against Ryan Barby for the vacant LFC lightweight Semi-Pro MMA title. This was Scott’s first fight after nearly a year layoff due to injuries, and he didn’t waste anytime in his return, pulling of a submission victory via guillotine choke in the opening stanza to claim the title. With the win, Scott has certainly made a statement that he is back to the form that saw him rattle off a streak of wins against some of the countries top prospects, and he will be looking to continue his run in the next few months so WATCH THIS SPACE!
