MMABay EXCLUSIVE – Oli Thompson signs with the UFC, set to debut against Phil De Fries on November 5th in Birmingham

July 29, 2011 All MMA News, Exclusives, UFC  Comments 

MMABay can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that Wolfslair MMA Academy heavyweight, Oli Thompson has been snapped up by the UFC and will be making his octagon debut at UFC 138 on November 5th in Birmingham, England against undefeated prospect, Phil De Fries.

News of the fight was passed along to MMABay.co.uk earlier today by a source close to one of the two men. Thompson signed with the UFC earlier today and inked his bout agreement at the same time.

Thompson has blazed a trail on the UK scene since making the move to MMA back in April 2009, amassing an impressive 9-2 record thus far. He is currently on a five-fight winning streak and recently submitted Mark Potter via rear-naked choke in the very first round at UCMMA 21. MMABay broke news of Thompson signing with the Wolfslair MMA Academy only earlier today, a smart move as they have been instrumental in making major things happen for their fighters over the past couple of years.

De Fries is currently 7-0-1 in his MMA career and has become known as somewhat of a finisher over the past couple of years, submitting all of his opponents, six in the first round. Stay tuned to MMABay for more news on this one as we get it.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
