Cage Rage 26: 'Ross Pointon Returns' on May 10

cage rage 26
That's not really the name of the event. Repeat: That's not really the name of the event.

However, the ever popular contestant on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 3 and former UFC fighter, Ross Pointon, has healed from the ax wound he suffered his last time out and will be back in action at Cage Rage 26: "Extreme" from the NEC Arena in Birmingham, England, on May 10.

The event will be streamed LIVE on for FREE on fight night.

There are 11 total bouts on the card, including a main event light heavyweight title fight between champion Ian "The Machine" Freeman (18-7-1) and challenger Paul Cahoon (10-10).

"The Machine" is a Vale Tudo-style fighter with a wide range of finishing abilities. Of his 18 wins only three have gone to decision. He has eight submission victories and seven wins by way of T(KO).

Freeman has tested himself against some very tough fighters since joining the professional MMA world in 1999 such as Andre Arlovski, Vernon White, Melvin Manhoef and others. He's a six-fight UFC veteran and holds a 3-2-1 record inside the Octagon, including a victory over former heavyweight champion, Frank Mir.

Cahoon is a kickboxer who started off his career losing nine of his first 12 fights. He has since righted the ship reeling off five straight wins and seven of his last eight. The lone loss was to the powerful Manhoef.

It's a solid main event and an undercard that has some decent fighters and a middleweight title fight.
