Now training in the MMA Lucan Gym which has a reputation for turning out some of the toughest fighters on the Irish circuit today Santos will be aiming to make his mark on the Cage Contender faithful as he step into the lions den.

“We were dissapointed when Tom withdrew then at the end of last week it looked like the game was up. But John Ferguson promised he would keep trying and he has been good to his word.
