Norman Parke Is On A Mission

NORMAN PARKE IS ON A MISSION TO BECOME A WORLDWIDE SUPERSTAR
By Stuart McQuitty, BELFAST TELEGRAPH
Who is 'Stormin' Norman Parke? To the uninitiated, he is a cage fighter who attempts to beat his opponent black and blue.

In reality, he is a supremely skilled Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) athlete who trains six hours a day in boxing, kickboxing, judo, wrestling and muay thai. He plies his trade all over the world competing against the planet's best fighters in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

Mixed Martial Arts is considered the fastest growing sport in the world and at 27 years of age, Parke is to date Northern Ireland's only competitor in the UFC with four wins, one draw and only one loss, yet this highly impressive achievement has gone largely unnoticed in his own country.
