BAMMA Light Heavyweight Title
Paul ‘Bearjew’ Craig (c) Vs. ‘The Housewives Choice’ Chris Fields
Scottish Light Heavyweight superstar Paul ‘Bearjew’ Craig (8-0) has seen his star rise since signing on the dotted line with BAMMA. Causing huge waves in the division with his victory over the previously undefeated Karl Moore, he then swiftly dethroned the previous champion Marcin ‘Bane’ Lazarz to become the new king of the Light Heavyweights. The Scottish Hit Squad standout is now looking to dominate the division and has his sights set on a win in enemy territory over the hometown hero Chris Fields. After a minor altercation behind the scenes at BAMMA 24 and numerous clashes via Social Media, Craig is determined to not only win in style but to solidify his position as champion with a dominating performance over Fields on June 4th.
After a reinvigorating win at BAMMA 24 over the tough Dan Konecke, ‘The Housewives Choice’ Chris Fields (11-7-1) is firmly back in the title hunt after moving up to the Light Heavyweight division. This is a division that Fields says he’s more comfortable in than any he has been in before, and he is now targeting the long time dream of headlining and winning the title in the 3Arena in front of his hometown support. The SBG Swords gym owner believes that this is his time and on Saturday 4th June he will leave the 3Arena as the BAMMA Light Heavyweight Champion.
With a full supporting card to follow shortly, BAMMA 26: Craig Vs. Fields is set to be the most spectacular MMA in event in Dublin yet. Tickets go on sale Monday 11th April and will be availble from bamma.com This event is expected to be a packed house once more as BAMMA returns to Dublin to deliver an event worthy of the Irish audience in attendance on June 4th!
