Philips Fight Videos


Philip talks about his upcoming MMA fight vs. Nathan Beer on Oct. 13, 2012. Instructor Philip won in round 3 by submission 

Not the best video but below is Philips Professional MMA Debut vs Valdo on July, 15 2006. For your American entertainment listen closely as a audience member repeatedly calls one of the fighters a "wanker".  We are curious as to what the auidence would do at a MMA fight here if one of us repeatedly called one of the fighters a wanker. Maybe we can try this out at XFO 57 when Evolution MMA's Mike Geiger fights at the united center.    


 Below is  Philips Gym "Gods of War MMA" in Reading, England

 We would like to thank Gods of war MMA gym out of Reading, England and the UK's Shock n Awe MMA Promotion company for the videos!




 In this Awesome but yet awkwardly hilarious video, Philip and his fellow fighters raise money for Pancreatic Cancer Research in London Valley by doing a Zumba class!

Sorry Philip Had to post this short gem! It's not everyday you see a class full of fighter taking a Zumba class.
