Marshman Issued Formal Warning By UK Military

Many would think Jack Marshman would feel great after his win at UFC London, where he took a split decision from fellow Welshman, John Phillips, but the end of a two-fight skid would lead to trouble with his bosses…the British Military.

As a guest on the MMA Hour, Marshman explained on Monday that he had received a forma warning from his employers, with the potential of a discharge if done again.

“I’m leaving anyway, I’ve given my year’s notice because on the fourth of November that will be my 12-year point, so that’s me signing off now,” Marshman said.

“My officer in command knew that I was fighting and he had basically okay’d it,” Marshman said on Monday’s MMA Hour. “But it came from above him that I wasn’t allowed to fight and the day I was going to fight week, on the Tuesday, I had a text message off my RCMO (Regimental Careers Management Officer) telling me I wasn’t gonna be fighting. … I just sort of went with it anyway.”

“I want to continue fighting. I’ve been doing this for, like, 12 years… I’m fighting a really high level, I made it to the UFC, I’ve just been offered a new contract, and I got really far but at the minute my job is a soldier. I’m a professional soldier and I’m not training the same ways as everyone else.”
