EXCLUSIVE: Studio audience tickets released today for @_MeetTheCritics @TheBlackPanther special on @ColourfulRadio Fri 16 Feb 7pm
In 1993 Mixed Martial Arts – or ‘cage fighting’ as it is often referred to – originated as a competition with the intention of finding the most effective martial art for real, unarmed combat situations. Fighters were matched against one another with few rules.
It wasn’t long before the fighters learnt that if they wanted to compete among the best they needed to train in additional skills and disciplines. Fighters began to evolve in to well-balanced athletes that could fight standing or on the ground. This blend of fighting styles and skills became known as Mixed Martial Arts – MMA.
With a strong passion for all things MMA, Rise of Champions is the brainchild of one of the UK’s most loved and well respected Mixed Martial Artists, Brad ‘One Punch’ Pickett, and his experienced and highly respected trainer Mickey Papas. The two have worked together since the start of Brad’s career and wanted to establish a promotion that would nurture the next generation of highly evolved Mixed Martial Artists on their journey to the top.
Brad was a pioneer for UK MMA, particularly for the lower weight classes before retiring last year. He competed at flyweight, bantamweight, featherweight and lightweight. He fought for a number of promotions in addition to the UFC and WEC such as Cage Rage, BodogFIGHT and Dynamite!! USA.
The first Rise of Champions event took place 21st November 2015.
Pro Mai fighter, Josh Herdman made his MMA debut at ROC 2, 23rd April 2016, securing a unanimous decision victory over Janusz Walachowski.
Today marks exactly one month until Herdman fights Samuel Radley on sun 18th February at ROC, in the Brentwood Centre, Essex.
Footage from the fight will form part of the narrative of Jesse Quinones new feature film Cagefighter, shooting throughout 2018, due for release in 2019 in which Josh plays the lead role of Reiss, an MMA fighter. A truly fascinating spectacle as we get to witness something that has never happened before in cinema.
ROC: Rise of Champions 5, February 17th 5pm, The Brentwood Centre, Doddinghurst Road, Brentwood
Essex, CM15 9NN.

Former Harry Potter star takes on the fight of his life – in the cage and on-screen
Life and art are set to come face-to-face in the cage for former Harry Potter star Josh Herdman at Rise of Champions MMA on February 17. Herdman is set to fight Samuel Radley in an electrifying match that will serve as preparation for his upcoming role in forthcoming MMA feature film ‘Cagefighter’ directed by Jesse Quinones, in which Herdman will play the lead.
Herdman, a black belt in Japanese JuJutsu and life long martial artist, made his MMA debut in April 2016 after winning via unanimous decision against Janusz Walachowski. He is now taking on his second fight for the MMA promotion Rise of Champions. The fight will be key prep for Cagefighter, in which Herdman plays Reiss, an MMA fighter battling with inner demons on his quest for championship gold.
Herdman said: The script had me hooked instantly. The story, characters and dialogue are all on point. To get the lead in a movie about one of my passions is a dream come true. It’s such an interesting concept too, not just a regular fight movie, it’s deeper than that, there’s a totally different angle. It reveals some of the the darkest parts to fighting and in some places specifically to MMA, dealing with important issues. I can’t wait to get stuck in. I’ve been training solidly for both this fight and for the role of Reiss, and I’m determined to nail both.”
The film will mark Herdman’s biggest film role to date, following film credits including a ten year portrayal of Gregory Goyle in the Harry Potter franchise, the role of Righteous in Robin Hood, and ITV hit series Marcella.
Written and directed by award winning film maker Jesse Quinones (Woolfcub Productions) and produced by Terry Bird (Norton Place), Cagefighter will feature some of the biggest names in MMA including UFC Light Heavy Weight title contender Jimi Manuwa, Dan Hardy, and MMA Host Gareth A Davies, plus creative support from MMA pioneers such as Brad ‘one punch’ Pickett, who founded Rise of Champions in 2015. MMA has been a recognised sport since 1993.
Quinones is himself a martial artist and holds a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. His first feature film, Calloused Hands, received an international VOD release November 2017 on various platforms including Film Doo and Xbox. He said: “There is no sport more exhilarating to watch than Mixed Martial Arts – currently the fastest growing sport in the world. Cagefighter will be the UK’s first MMA feature film and there’s no actor more perfect for this role than Josh, who lives and breathes the sport.’
