Topic:Oran Mor Vi- Vengeance Sep 11 Glasgow

Oran Mor VI- Vengeance Sep 11 Glasgow....Why Vengeance?...

Headlining are two of the most heated rematches in Scottish Muay Thai.
Gordon Smith (3xSTBA Champion) defends his A class title against Wullie Dempster in the 67kg division. Dempster has been seeking revenge since Smith defeated him several years ago. Both fighters have stepped up their game since then, Smith showing his quality when he defeated John Douglas, touted until that point as Scotland's no.1 welterweight, and Dempster back on a winning streak, despite his recent loss at the Reebok show.

Vengeance pt.2 Michael 'War' Wiseman and Robert Burke are two of the toughest and most active fighters in the UK. They recently clashed in a full rules match ending unsatisfyingly in a draw, both lads reckoned they did enough to win, so this time round there is no space for error or stalling, this fight will be explosive.

There's more fights coming,one more to announce at the moment is a kind of homecoming. Kyle Nicol (Crawley Lumpini) returns to his native Scotland to take on Ryan Hurley in a prestige A class bout at 72kgs. Styles make fights, so this should be fantastic action.

Thank you to all coaches and fighters so far who are supporting this event.

Stay tuned for more rock and roll.

This is always one of the slickest events in the Scottish MT Calendar. Always well matched, well run and very well attended. Beautiful venue but not the biggest so the show ALWAYS sells out. Get your tickets quick if you fancy going!

Good luck with the show Guy and team!

Information about the show as it develops can be found on the Oran Mor VI - Vengeance webpage.

Another A class belter to add...Jordan Calder back in action versus England's Billy Hatton (now training at Eclipse under the guidance of Keith McLachlan). Calder never fails to entertain, this will be no exception. That's 4 cracking full rules matches confirmed.
In the B class division (possibly for the last time before both lads move up to A) Brian Totty takes on experienced SMTC fighter and Scottish UKMF champ at 61kg,Ahmed Ibrahim. This is a non-title match and will be fought at 64kg, which may pave the way for another vengeance show for the title....

More coming....
Posted: 2011-07-19 11:35:26
Good luck with this, looks s an exciting line up as usual !! will defo be up to support, if anyone fancies a bet I'll have cash on Gordon, jordan to win stoppage and Kyle nicol?

All the best with this show Guy. Some real good fights lined up.
guy caledonian
Posted: 2011-07-25 16:11:04
And now check this out...Stevie Meikle v Craig Jose.
The vengeance continues, another A class rematch between two of the UK's most experienced fighters.. Stevie Meikle returns from Thailand to face England's Craig Jose. Stevie has clocked up 47 fights now, and has improved every aspect of his game. The last time they clashed, Craig had been playing with MMA, but since has thrown his energy back into Thai, defeating Zidov for the MAD World title, and more recently defeating UK veteran Kev Harper. Will it be 2-0 or 1-1. Time for vengeance.

Next!! Delighted and excited to announce Tommy Young v Wayne Fisher, 65kg. Arguably (actually, unarguably really...:-) one of the finest technicians in Scottish Thai, Tommy returns to Oran Mor against Carlisle's Wayne Fisher, one of the north's most active fighters.

Reckon 6 A class fights worth the ticket money alone...

And then there's the supporting card. More info coming soon. Tix out Aug 1st, come and get 'em.
James McIntyre

Support card coming together nicely, so as if all the A class action wasn't enough, here goes - 2 B class matches...

Mani Singh (Griphouse) v Ian Houillebecq (Legions Gym, York)61kg
Bart Miasik(Griphouse) v Gilberto Jiminez (Highlanders)62kg

and so far for the c class bouts...(more coming)

Yvonne McCabe (Lanark MMA) v Claire Falconer (Sit Ayuthaya, Hamilton)
Graeme Dunbar (Griphouse) v Mike Wood (Legions Gym, York)
Mike Murdoch (Griphouse) v Jason McSweeney (Kombat, Coatbridge)

which brings me onto a new of the fighters on the bill is closely involved in a charity raising funds for a two year old lad who desperately needs medical attention and can only get remedial surgery in the US, so, £5 for every ticket sold is going towards that. I think the show is worth £30 in its own right, but it's good to show the wider community that muay thai can be a force for good, as well as cash 'n' glory. Anyone interested in checking out the cause it's

looks good guy,

hopefully get a chance to come along. has ryan got tickets yet?
Posted: 2011-08-04 16:37:04
Got my ticket today!!!! Can't wait to see Tommy and Mani fight! Two of the nicest guys I've met in a long time! This card is DEF worth £30 on it's own so maybe an additional "bucket" round the venue on the day might be in order to help this wee chap??

Posted: 2011-08-05 09:31:13
What a line up! Gutted I can't be there :-(

Meikle Jose 2 will be a war!!!

Hi Guy

It will be the best £30 quid people could spend and the £5 will help make a big difference to this boys life.

So I would like to offer up by purse money for my fight towards this.

Posted: 2011-08-06 07:29:51
you guys are killing me with this charity goodness!
guy caledonian
Posted: 2011-08-07 16:34:47
Ha, leave us some dosh in your will then...;-)
Honselty though, I don't want any of the fighters to be under any pressure to do the same as Jason (which is really kind of him)as they are providing the show that will allow us to fundraise. They are fighting pro rules, so I expect to pay them for their work.
A few more bouts to announce this week, tickets are out and going fast, any fighters not ordered theirs yet, please get in touch.
Posted: 2011-08-07 17:35:07
Have you tried Alex Dally in Workington for a match for your female fighters. Alex and wife Mem run a female class and I am pretty sure they have girls ready to fight. Mem is trying to get active as well.

If you want contact details give me a shout.

Stu MC
Posted: 2011-08-08 04:45:58
Hi Guy

Don't want anyone to feel that they need to offer up their purse money just because I have.

Hope it has not come across as that. The majority of the guys fighting A class do this as a full time job so their money supports them in doing so.

I work a 9-5 and run a club so I felt it was right for me to do it.

Roll on Sept 11th.
guy caledonian
Posted: 2011-08-08 09:51:46
Thanks Stu, I'll give Alex a shout, all the best.
Totally appreciate that Jason, and indeed, roll on sep 11th...:-)

Michael Wiseman will now fight Linzie Batey from Dumfries for the STBA Light Welterweight title (A class). Mikey's original opponent had to pull out due to rib injuries sustained in his last fight..we wish him well and a speedy return to training. A big thank you to Keith McLachlan from Eclipse for vacating title and keeping the STBA title challenges alive and kicking.

We have two more bouts to announce, another England v Scotland bout sees Danny Whittington from Carlisle take on Scott from KKC, and local bout between George Morrison (Hamilton) and Andrew Pettigrew (Douglas MT)

Tickets are flying out, don't leave it too late, Oran Mor is fantastic venue but it has a limited capacity!

hey guy, remember and send us ten tickets mate :) and show is looking awsome btw :)))

mark when lindzie was at the wieght in against brain i said your big at this weight and he said he had to eat to stay over 66 mate think he will make 63.5 easyish
guy caledonian
Posted: 2011-08-15 08:49:42
yeah, both lads big at 63.5, mikey's made this weight in his last 3 fights so has it down no problem, and Linzie last time had to cram in the calories to stay at 66, so not going to be a problem...only a problem for whoever is next to challenge...;-)
Bison Thai
Posted: 2011-08-15 09:42:58
good stuff will be a good fight then, Suppose i am just assuming because am used to seeing him fight heavier.

A think the origianl match up would be good for the next challenge, robert burke.
Posted: 2011-08-15 15:32:35
eagerly awaiting this show, especially ryan v kyle, by the beatings im receving in sparring and holding pads for ryan i can tell this will be a good fight to watch, and a hard fight to judge! ha

looking forward to this :D

also when i read rab and micheal were getting it on again it gave me a wee shiver as i was unlucky enough to miss the first bout they had, will have to wait and see pt2 in future i suppose :)
Jock McRock
Posted: 2011-08-17 13:31:06

Tommy Young Vs Wayne Fisher should be a cracker as well as as Meikle vs Jose!

Looking forward to watching Ryan & Ahmed's fights as well :)

Jordan's fight is at 59kgs higher than he normally fights (57) due to his original opponent pulling out, thanks to Carl and Steve Logan helping on this one, and yeah Carl has been in with some good guys, John Dennis etc... and is ranked number 3 in UK at 59kgs, will be a good fight.

And... Bart Miasik will now fight Calum Mather from Faktory gym in Newcastle, turning half the show into Scotland v England, Venegeance indeed!
Thank so far to all coaches and fighters, particularly the super- subs(K-star, Faktory, Fighting Fit) We have 14 fighters out this weekend (Jo and Adrian fight in Bournemouth ...good luck guy and gal)and the pad holders and sparring partners are breathing a heavy sigh of relief that the daily kickings are over. The team is looking sh*t hot, and looking forward to Sunday.

The weigh-in is at the Griphouse, G4 9SY, 12-2pm on Saturday. We will allow 1lb/.5kg for calibration.

Gary O'Brien is ISKA rep for titles, and English official Darren Philips will ensure impartiality is available for our English neighbours :-)

The show is a complete sell out, there may be a few tix returned on Saturday at the weigh in, but please do not risk turning up on the day if you are travelling far as you may not get in.

Safe journey to all our fighters and officials.

Yet another top well ran show by guy and his team. Superb show and thanks for having us up. Wayne and Tommys fight was a good thai style technical fight to watch and tommy was winning until Wayne pulled a bombardment of knees out of the hat to take the win.
Posted: 2011-09-11 16:25:03
Just to say well done to Guy a crackin show and if any trainers out there want to show there students that it aint over till the final bell, then show them the Wayne v Tommy fight a really top class perfomance from both fighters. On a personal note GUY Ramsey must be thee only person ive'e paid money to so I could were a PINK BRACELET, thaks GUY.

@Bison, after some initial flash from Ahmed, Totty moved forward consistently and broke him with knees.

What an awesome show!! Didn't get to see much of it but what i did see was ace!! Some great matches and the venue was packed which goes to show the popularity of the Oran Mor fights!!

Want to say sorry to everybody for my fight, not sure if it was 'ring rust' but stood about for 4 rounds getting bashed like an idiot before I decided to do something, too little too late unfortunately. Only 1 point in it! Hopefully a rematch now that's it 1 win a piece???

Great show! Well done kyle nicol! Gd solid performance and victory!

Thought the show was run excellently! Oran mor is a great venue, but IMO its just far too small from a specatators point of view! The vengance show deserves a bigger venue I think! But then, do ye lose the atmosphere?

Well done to everyone involved

AWESOME show guy had a great day
the quality of the fights was awesome

Yeaa! the venue is bang on some venues are just to big and can lose a bit of the atmosphere!

Jordan Calder was brilliant as per ;) Thought craig jose was mint really exiting to watch!

Well done guy brilliant show ;) (only bad part was the 80 odd stairs i had to run up and down to get tell the fighters to come up but then i discovered the lift haha)

The list of thank yous is too big for my sore head (why does a show always make you feel hungover??? - and its not the booze before anyone wisecracks!) As a promoter I'm happy the way the show ran, and I appreciate the feedback r.e venue, card , it allows me to develop the show. There is a whole voluntary backstage team that the audience never see that makes this work, so here goes...
Dean Reilly, Titan, Lyn Min-Din, Sean Wright, Ross Jack, Craig Walton, JP Gallagher, Andy Primrose, Paula Wilkie, Daniel MacInally, Martin McCann, Brian 'Senior' Totty, and my awesome wife, Gill.
As a coach, its always bittersweet,8wins, 3 loss, although on a positive note, even the guys who lost managed to show what they are capable of, especially Tommy who performed a muay thai clinic of excellence for 4 rounds before getting caught with a barrage of knees from very game Fisher.
In fact knees were the weapon of choice for most of the ko's, Gordon and Michael securing their Scottish titles, Totty decisive in his demolition of UKMF Scot champ, showing he is at title level now (title shot please!!)
Can't mention everyone, but you know who you are, thank you!
To Darren Philips and John Jarvis, thanks for the inspiration and the company.

Could write loads but hate doing big long posts, highlight for me was seeing one of my best mates Gordon defending his title for the 17th time or something lol, absolutely loved seeing how much that title means to him, true champion mate

Thanks to Guy for the awesome hospitality. The show was superb, I love the Oran Mor for atmosphere, amongst other things, there's something about a scot coming out to the pipes in Scotland.

I've watched Guy's fighters develop over the years and he a really strong Muay Thai gym with a great team behind him. I'd have to agree with him that even the lads who lost looked good, we all know about Tommy who was superb, but Credit to Wayne and his team, they knew he was behind going into the last round and he went out and did what he had to do to take the win.

I'm a bit worried what me and John might inspire you to do, given the amount of time we spent in the bar saturday afternoon

I really like Glasgow :-)

Thanks to guy for having me up again in glasgow, I've actually fought in glasgow more times than any other city, 14times in total ha ha that seems strange.

Was a great show like everyone has said already, just wanna say well done to young calum for taking the opportunity last minute an showing heart springing up from the early knockdown, bart was just too to watch I think.

As far as my fight goes it was all going well, couldnt miss rd 1-3 then someone switched my battery off, tried to step it up rd 4 but gassed still took rd 4 I thought, kept myself ahead rd 5 but steve prob got 5th. my own fault for not preparing as well as normal, lesson learned. Credit to steve like he took some flush elbows and about 8 unanswered knees in the 4th an was still fighting, he's tougher than some ppl give him credit for, I'm sure we'll fight again at some point. hope the eggs gone down.

Oh gotta give a quick mention to the fucking huge belt!! Woohoo nice trophy ;-)

Just want to say well done to my boy Jordan Calder, who stepped up a weight class and fought a very very awkward and tough fighter in Carl Copestake and won on points, was a great fight for Jordan because I dont think he will ever fight someone like Carl again (well i hope not lol) was difficult for him but once again he came through and delivered, he only turned 18 two weeks ago and to win an ISKA Commonwealth Title says it all really about Jordan, he is pure class and we are all very proud of him, he's been fighting men for years now, says it all really. He trains hard and deserves everything he gets in this sport, he's going back to his normal weight to fight now xxxxxxx

I cant believe jordans only just turned 18 and being so successful at a high level. Everyone knows how much potential Jordans as, its brilliant to watch him develop as a fighter. Incredible talent who is taking strides to becoming world class.

All through hard work.

really enjoyed the show,fights were excellent.really felt sorry for mani bcoz i thot hes was winning the fight up until can see how popular he is with everyone up the grip.the fight i wanted to see most was jordans so we could have a look at carl bcoz hes in the 8 man.awkward style and isnt going to be an easy fight for anyone in it but thot jordan handled him well and deservedly won the fight.gordon smith celebration is just the best can you imagine him opening up his christmas totty i thot looked excellent just walked thru everything ahmed had and just clinched him for fun,ahmed needs to work on his clinch if hes going to fight at that level.ill finish with mikey wiseman,a massive well done and it was good to see keith presenting the belt to a fellow and well done mick murdoch,i missed your fight mate bcoz i was still working but keith told me you were great mate.
