The Best Thing We Shared

On The Record

I was on a short-term deal with Munster during the World Cup and there was a 50/50 chance of staying on but unfortunately it didn’t work out.“It was a shame because I enjoyed it there. The options I had with other clubs weren’t really right for me and, a few days after I finished with Munster, my dad told me he had heard about this MMA thing called ‘Wimp 2 Warrior’. That same day, a friend of mine contacted me about it as well.

“When I looked into it, it looked brilliant. It was a chance to train in MMA and learn a new skill — and with John Kavanagh too at SBG. It sounded like a fantastic opportunity. I thought there’d be no harm in taking a punt on it because there was no guarantee that I’d get it anyway.” – Former Munster player Shane Monahan is trying his hand as an MMA fighter.
