Douglas downs Fraser in MMA match

Chilliwack's Darwin Douglas earned a unanimous decision over Bill Fraser at the Battlefield Fight League Fight Night.

Chilliwack’s Darwin Douglas gave himself a great birthday present Jan. 18, beating Bill Fraser in a mixed martial arts match at Richmond’s River Rock Casino.

The owner of Chilliwack’s Four Directions Martial Arts and a professional MMA competitor, Douglas earned a unanimous decision  at Battlefield Fight League Fight Night.

In the process, he avenged a loss suffered three years ago, when Fraser beat him by submission.

The only First Nations professional fighter currently representing Chilliwack,  Darwin now shifts his focus to coaching.

He is guiding 19 year old protege Jamie Siraj as he prepares to make his pro debut later this month.

Siraj has compiled an impressive 8-2-0 record. On Feb. 22 he’ll face off against Jordan Macken, a tough competitor from the United States with a strong wrestling background.

Siraj is an assistant coach at Four Directions Martial Arts, a hard-working young athlete who aspires to become the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) champ one day.

Siraj has travelled to Montreal to train with the coaches at the Tri-Star gym, home of famed UFC star George St. Pierre.
