BAMMA are on a recruitment drive for fighters with another helping of Irish MMA pros, this time out of Team Ryano, joining the UK promotion.

With a card booked for December this year and a further four dates already confirmed for Dublin shows in 2019, Dublin’s 3 Arena is fast becoming a home away from home for BAMMA.

Today the UK-based outfit announced that five of Team Ryano’s Finglas-based stable will be appearing on upcoming BAMMA cards.

These include

  • ‘Magic’ Myles Price (Team Ryano Kilkenny)
  • Keith ‘The Butcher’ McCabe
  • Andy ‘The Carlow Kid’ Murphy (Team Ryano Wexford)
  • James Sheehan
  • Diarmuid O’Buachalla

Kilkenny’s Myles Price (10-7, 2-1 BAMMA) was in action at BAMMA 35 in May this year, picking up a decision victory over Phil Raeburn after 2 years away from the cage.

He subsequently fought on Brave 13: European Evolution, cornered by Murphy and O’Buachalla, in Belfast’s SSE Arena this past June. In the night’s co-main event, Price dropped a decision win to ‘Stormin’ Norman Parke.

Murphy (1-1, 1-1 BAMMA) tasted defeat in his pro debut to Richie Smullen at BAMMA 26, making up for it with a win over Stephen Kilifin at BAMMA 28 in Belfast, February 2017.

Murphy has been sidelined through injury for the past year but having recently opened up Team Ryano Wexford, he’ll be making his return to cage with MTK’s next show in Newcastle this 21 July.

O’Buachalla picked up an early first round TKO against Martin Ward in his BAMMA debut this past May. McCabe is 2-1 on BAMMA, his most recent win taking an early submission over Glenn Irvine at BAMMA 28.

Welterweight fighter Sheehan also picked up a bin against Dillon Manning on the Lohore v Pascu card in May.
