UK-based MMA promotion BAMMA today announced it will be returning to Dublin in Ireland with BAMMA 26. The event will take place on June 4th at Dublin’s 3Arena and will be headlined by the light heavyweight title bout between champ Paul ‘Bearjew’ Craig and Ireland’s own Chris Fields.
Undefeated Scottish 205lb champ Craig has finished all eight of his opponents in pro MMA – seven via submission. He is coming off a triangle choke win over Marcin Lazarz at BAMMA 23 in November.
Fields is coming off a submission win over Dan Konecke at BAMMA 24 in February.
In the upcoming May UK edition of Fighters Only, Craig says he feels Fields is undeserving of a title shot, having only won one fight since 2012.
Also on the card, James ‘Strabanimal’ Gallagher will take on Sean Tobin. Tickets go on sale April 11th at BAMMA.com.
