This is gonna be one tasty matchup.

Two veterans of the Irish MMA scene face off in Battlezone FC’s Prestige Nogi matchup in just under three weeks time.

Team Ryano’s Paul Redmond, a BJJ brown belt under Andy Ryan, will face No Fear MMA’s Connor Dylan at the Trinity Sports Centre, Donaghmede on Saturday 19 August.

Looking fresh in his submission victory over Rob ‘C4’ Sinclair at BAMMA 30 in July, ‘Redser’ is a submission specialist, with two-holds or knee-bars finishing four of his last seven MMA bouts. Take a look at his finish over Sinclair below.

Dylan is 0-6 in his last six MMA fights, including defeats at the hands of Brian Moore, Decky Dalton and team-mate of Redmond, Patrick Wixted in 2015. In recent years Connor has trained with BJJ Black Belt Henrique Saraiva and has seen a massive improvement in his grappling skills.

This will be a huge one for grappling fans on the night. Tickets for Battlezone are still available via
