War Machine post UWC 6 comments

Since being ostracized by both the UFC and Bellator, War Machine has hit the local circuit. This past weekend he made his UWC debut at their “Capital Punishment” card. He had a little more trouble than expected with Reshad Woods, but in the end was able to finish the fight in the second round. The always outspoken, War Machine, talked to reporters after his fight. PRO MMA (promma.info) staff writer Richard Mann was there.

During the fight War Machine continually pressed forward trying to take Woods to the ground. Apparently, this was his strategy going into the fight. Machine told reporters, “I knew he was a kick boxer, and he he’s got a long reach on me. So, you know, I just wanted to get it on the ground. That’s where I’m stronger than him.”
