‘Judo’ Jimmy Wallhead – Restarting the Rollercoaster

For the final episode of Season 1 of the podcast, myself and Ben Harrison were joined by ‘Judo’ Jimmy Wallhead. Jimmy started off in Judo from a young age and showed great potential, leading to him leaving school at 16 to go full time at two times Olympic silver medallist Neil Adams gym.  Jimmy eventually became disillusioned with Judo but not before winning three British under 21’s titles and representing England in the European Youth Olympics. Since switching to MMA Jimmy has amassed a 26-9 record whilst fighting for top organisations such as BAMMA, Bellator and now Cage Warriors.  During this time he has had many ups and downs with great wins against the likes of Che Mills, Frank Trigg and Joey Villasenor never leading to the UFC contract he still coverts.  Now with a new training regime and fresh from the devastating KO of Juan Manuel Suarez, Jimmy is hoping now is finally his time. This is a fascinating insight into the highs and lows of life as one of Britain’s top MMA fighters. During the show we discuss the benefits of Judo as a foundation for MMA, pre-fight nerves, overcoming self-doubt and Jimmy tells us how he rediscovered his passion for his career. Amongst other things, he also gives us his tips for grapplers trying to adjust their game for MMA, his views on TRT use and provides us with some upcoming UFC predictions.
