Inman New Total Combat Champion
Matt Inman defeated local favourite Kyle Redfearn in just under two minutes at Total Combat 47 on Saturday 12th May 2012 to become the new British Welterweight champion.
Taking the fight on ten days notice, after Redfearn's original opponent pulled out, this was Inman's first MMA fight since 2010 having spent the last year focussing on his coaching career and having back rehabilitation.
Obviously a little cage rusty, Inman found himself in bottom mount after shooting a double leg early in the first round. Weathering the storm from Redfearn's ground and pound, Inman kept his composure and sunk in a triangle choke, taking the W in 1:50 of round number one.
