Congratulations to Alex Samuels, winner of the Bath UpChuck Fight Night Combat tournament last weekend. Alex beat Cameron Ford 5-3 in the final to win himself 250 rankings points. This was only Alex's second Fight Night, and Cameron's first.
Alex's win keeps up the streak of five tournaments with first-time winners in a row, and also the streak of no repeat champions in 2016 so far.
Dave Leahy didn't return to Bath to defend his 2015 title, so lost 250 rankings point. But even with a big reduction of points, he remains in fourth place in the current 52 week rankings, still slightly ahead of Andreas Braun.
This could all change this weekend though, as Dave also won the Winter Jongleer Weekend Fight Night last year, and will drop the 300 rankings points if he doesn't defend his title at the WJW 2016. Without those points Dave will drop out of the top 10 for the first time since October 2013!
