Adam Parkes, of Wolfslair and Blackledge MMA, comes into this fight with a record of 4-1 as a professional and will be the home favourite in the clash. 

In June of this year Parkes returned to the cage at Force One MMA when he dispatched of Kristan Bircher via Submission (Rear Naked Choke) in the first round of their match up. That got him back into the win column after a 2013 loss to Deividas Banaitis at OMMAC 17. 

Known for his power, Parkes has finished all four of his opponents in the first round with two TKO/KO’s and two submissions, one of which was a submission to punches. 

It is great to see that Parkes is back in action and he will face a tough test on his return in the form of Thomas Denham. 

Denham is 4-6 as a pro but records don’t make fighters and he is someone who will never turn down an easy fight, as seen in 2013 when he took on Peter Irving at Made4TheCage. 

He turned professional in 2011 and has taken on some well known names in UK MMA and is a BAMMA veteran and showcased his all round skill set on the BAMMA show in early 2013 when he was involved in one of the fights of the night, when he defeat Brett McDermott via Submission (Rear Naked Choke)) in the second round. 

According to Sherdog Denham’s last outing was in October 2013 when he was defeated by Stephen Lambert at HS – Heat Sports 1, in Essex, but with his next fight a year later we all know that Denham will have been training hard and will be looking to get back into the win column.
