Five days to go, here’s the confirmed Battlezone Fighting Championships 17 card

We’re less than one week away from Battlezone FC 17 in Dublin and here’s how the fight card is looking.

Battlezone 17

Dublin, get ready.

Since first advertised, there’s been a few changes to the upcoming Battlezone 17 as Ireland’s top amateur card heads for Dublin this Saturday in the first of two outings this year.

Gone from the previously advertised billing include the pro featherweight clash between SBG’s Dylan Logan (0-2) and Sharkbait MMA’s Tom Moore (1-0) along with two welterweight matchups and two bantamweight matchups.

Coming into the fold is a Bantamweight Title Fight between Matiss Marahovs and Ciaran Mulholland while Team Ryano’s Brian Draper and Trevor Makengo (C-Mac MMA) will meet at heavyweight.

The previously announced NoGi Prestige Matchup between Paul ‘Redser’ Redmond and Connor Dylan now has company with another 4 grappling matches added.

Here’s how the full card looks heading into this weekend.
