Under gårdagen dök uppgifter upp om att en MMA-gala kan komma att ha ett antal matcher för folk som sitter i rullstol. Galan kommer hållas i South Yorkshire, England senare i år.
De tävlande i MMA matcherna kommer använda samma sorts rullstolar som man använder i rullstolsbasket,rugby och "off-road" sporter. Men ska nu också användas i boxning och MMA.
Colin Woods ledare för TWWG säger så här om saken "I have the pleasure to announce that after much discussion “Wheeled Warriors and the UCFC have agreed to join forces. This is for the benefit of both the fans and physically-challenged fighters across the globe.
We have come together to bring both amputees and wheeled fighters into the ring to compete just like any other. I had the pleasure to attend as a ringside spectator to the UCFC’s most recent endeavour – UCFC 4 – which had 13 bouts of amateur and pro MMA action on the card and featured special guests from the UFC Ryan Badar and Clarence Dollaway.
It is clear this concept is well-received and ahead of its time as very few would expect something of its kind to come to fruition so soon. To conclude, this is a great collaboration which surely will improve sports and will continue to grow for the foreseeable future. Both sides are gaining opportunities."
Målet för TWWG är att sporterna Boxning och MMA ska tas upp på Paralympics programmet.
