When Prince changed his name to "The Artist Formerly Known As Prince" (some weird symbol), people got used to it. I guess we can get used to UCMMA. British promoter Dave O'Donnell has announced that the promotion formerly known as "Cage Rage-UK" will now simply go by UCMMA, short for Ultimate Challenge MMA. The organization has been using the two names interchangeably since 2008. That was back when the original, Pro Elite-owned Cage Rage went under along with its parent company.
Now, O'Donnell has officially buried the Cage Rage-UK name, officially rebranding it as UCMMA.
UCMMA comes off of UCMMA 26 where Linton Vassell defeated Aurelius Kerpe to take home the UCMMA light-heavyweight championship title.
