Cathal Pendred retires from MMA: ‘It is time for me to move on’

Well, that was a quick exit after a promising start. As long as Gunny is still there Conor should be ok.


SBG Ireland welterweight Cathal Pendred took to Twitter on Wednesday to call it quits on his professional mixed martial arts fighting career. The 28-year-old cited a lack of passion for competition as his motivating reason.

Pendred retires from MMA with a record of 17-4-1, although he dropped his last two straight. Most recently, he was stopped at 4:37 in the first round by Tom Breese in October at UFC Fight Night 76.

Pendred rose to prominence on the local fight circuit in Europe before going undefeated in the highly-respected Cage Warriors Fighting Championship promotion, going 5-0-1.

The Irish fighter eventually became a cast member on the ninteenth season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) where he made it to the tournament’s semifinals losing to recent UFC castoff Eddie Gordon. He was a part of B.J. Penn’s team.

Pendred ultimately went 4-2 inside the Octagon and holds wins over UFC veterans Che Mills, Sean Spencer, Nico Musoke, David Bielkheden and Gasan Umalatov.

He is the teammate of other UFC fighters Conor McGregor, Paddy Holohan and Aisling Daly.…-me-to-move-on

BCMMA meets Safe MMA criteria



It has been confirmed by medical consultancy and services provider, Safe MMA, that the professional fight card of new signee British Challenge Mixed Martial Arts has been medically cleared for Saturday’s BCMMA 12 at Charter Hall in Colchester, Essex (UK).

British Challenge Mixed Martial Arts is working with the United Kingdom Mixed Martial Arts Federation to meet full sanctioning requirements for 2016, which include following Safe MMA medical protocol. The promotion has also hired UKMMAF trained and certified officials for the event, at which further peer assessment will be carried out. Sanctioning inspectors will also be present to oversee proceedings and to give feedback post-event as part of the partnership.

BCMMA co-promoter, Jack Mason, said:

“We at BCMMA just want to say thank you to all the fighters competing on the card for being so professional in getting their bloods and medicals done so promptly, and for the help from the Safe MMA staff, that have enabled us to get the green light for the show with half a week to spare. This is a big step forward for a small grass roots show like BCMMA and it’s a great achievement for our first Safe MMA event. We are really looking forward to Saturday night and an incredible night of MMA action that includes UFC veterans, international competition and the cream of local talent.”

The UKMMAF issued this statement:

“Many regional shows have been tentative to commit to recommended minimum safety standards, which promoters and gyms owe to the athlete. BCMMA promoters Jack Mason and Chris Cook have disproved cynics by coming through with flying colours and without fuss in ensuring that their professional fighters have all met basic medical criteria, such as passing a general physical examination and clearing blood tests for viruses that include HIV. They have successfully managed the cost of hiring a fully equipped and qualified doctor led medical team for the show, essential to managing any medical emergency. BCMMA 12 is a flagship event in the UK in terms of raising the bar for British MMA in 2015. We thank the athletes, coaches, managers and the BCMMA team for their commitment, especially in the face of late fight card changes, and wish everyone the best of luck for Saturday night.”
