With the World Cup on the way, BAMMA have announced a London fight night, headlined by a champion v champion bout.
It marks a departure from usual Friday fight nights and is being billed as ‘the perfect companion to a night of high octane World Cup drama’.
“It doesn’t get any bigger than a World Cup final group game, and we are delighted to be partners with ITV in such a high profile sporting event as England v Belgium”, says BAMMA MD Ashley Bothwell.
“To be airing in such a fantastic slot is testament to the performance of BAMMA and the commitment of ITV to the sport of MMA. We couldn’t be more excited to deliver sports fans across the country such an epic night of action on June 28.”
Champion v Champion
Fans have been calling for McKee v Brazier for some time and they’ll get it next month – with the Lightweight title on the line.
McKee (7-1-1) took the title back from Tim Barnett in March of this year and makes his first defense against ‘The Dominator’ on 28 June.
Brazier (9-1) has been living up to his nickname and is on a dominating eight fight win streak.
The “Era Of Domination” began at BAMMA 34, as Terry Brazier executed a perfect game plan and vanquished a long time rival in the shape of Alex Lohore to gain the World Welterweight Title.
Now Brazier has set his sights on becoming a two weight division Champion by taking McKee’s title, and in doing so potentially become only the second fighter in BAMMA history to reign supreme over two divisions.
Tickets are available via ticketmaster.co.uk, with fight night screening on ITV that night.
