Shocking, right? The Gladiator upped his record to 6-10 with a heel-hook submission of Ross Mason (12-9) at Cage Rage 26, which happened Saturday night in Birmingham, England. It was Pointon’s third win in his last 13 fights; though to be honest, every fight that doesn’t end with your head looking like this is a moral victory.

More importantly, 41-year-old UFC/Cage Rage vet Ian Freeman came back from a 20-month hiatus to capture the British Light Heavyweight Title for the second time, with a dominating decision victory over Paul Cahoon. Full results are below; videos to come.

ross is tuff, i will give him that. Hes one of those guys that might not be a great technical fighter, but i would hate to meet him in a streetfight.

The silliest thing was that Pointon went around the cage and putting his hands around his waist wanting a title shot...
But props to him for winning, he seemed to have progressed since the last time I saw him!

The most impressive was Freeman's win though, he dominated the whole bout!

I fully expected him to win by "banging, man"...but heel hook...you don't say...
