Almighty FC promoter Ray Thompson and his team are preparing to return to the Rainton Arena in Houghton le Spring on June 25th for Almighty FC 26.
Almighty Fighting Championship continues to cruise through the year with monthly shows, giving fighters the opportunity to compete actively, and for some time has become the stand-out regional show in the UK.
Speaking of active fighters, I caught up with one man who has been active since making his amateur debut at the back end of 2021, Aaron Wilmot. Wilmot holds a record of (1-3) and makes his third trip to the Almighty Octagon, going (1-1).
The flyweight fighter will be looking to snap a two-fight skid on fight night, but before he does, we had the pleasure of throwing Wilmot some fun quick-fire questions.

The most memorable moment of your short career so far? Would it be your first victory?
No, it wasn’t. It was when I first dropped someone in a fight; even though I lost the fight, I knew I had the power there. I just needed to work on more technique and wrestling.
What would you rather, knockout, submission or fight of the night?
Fight of the night, the main goal is to entertain the crowd, I can’t stand boring wrestling matches.

Describe your opponent using one word?
1 or 2 drinks, then back in the gym, win or lose.
