UK MMA and its two limbed counterparts boxing can be hard to follow. We at CSUK decided to showcase which events are taking place this week.
UK MMA Cards
Saturday, February 12, 1:00 PM ET
First up from the MMA side of things is Chaos Fighting Championships 19, a promotion out of Derry, Northern Ireland. They first held their inaugural event way back in 2007, and after a 4-year hiatus are back with a mixed event including Gi and No-Gi BJJ (from 12 noon until 4:30) and MMA (from 6 till late).
With over 40 total fights, it looks like a solid full day of competition ahead at the Millennium Forum.
Saturday, February 12, 1:30 PM ET
Over in Swansea, Budo Fighting Championship 47 is set to take place in the Patti Pavilion. Long established as a hotbed of surging welsh talent, Budo FC again looks to push the rising stars into the spotlight as 23-year-old Welshman Josh O’Connor looks to carry over his seven-fight win streak from the amateur circuit into his pro debut. O’Connor will face off against fellow debutant Luka Causevic.
Elsewhere on the card, there is a Welsh amateur flyweight title showdown between Rickie George and Ethan Silvey.
UK Boxing Cards
While only a few UK MMA events take place this weekend, boxing is an entirely different matter.
Friday, February 11, 3:00 PM ET
First up, we have some Friday night fun as we make our way to York Hall for the MTK card main event headlined by middleweight Danny Dignum. Dignum comes into this one following back to back knockout wins and looks to end the night of Grant Dennis Abrubtley emphatically.
Dennis himself has two consecutive victories, the last of which came in late 2021, a points victory over Kearon Thomas.
Undefeated Scottish knockout artist Lee McGregor appears for the 12th time in his highlight ridden career as he looks to stop the Argentinian Diego Alberto Ruiz.
With the undercard host to a whole array of young British talent, it’s a great way to start your punch packed weekend. It will be available on ESPN+ or iFL tv.
Saturday 02.12.2022 at 02:00 PM ET
The business in Brentwood card is bursting with young British boxers looking to make a name. That’s always a recipe for fun. Billy Allington takes on Jamie Robinson in a ten rounder for the vacant English super lightweight title. Many popular regional faces, such as 4-0 pairs, such as Jack Martin and Billy Underwood and Ashley Sexton, are looking to make it back to back wins, this time against hard-hitting Ghanian Theophilus T Tetteh.
UK MMA and Boxing Takes Over London
Saturday 02.12.2022 at 03:30 PM ET
This week, one of the better fights includes the hard-hitting Londoner John Ryder, as he looks to make trouble for the “Miracle Man” Daniel Jacobs.
Ryder is riding a wave of confidence after his last fight in which he stopped Jozef Jurko after only five rounds, although Jacobs is a much more challenging task than the one Jurko presented.
Having missed last year, Jacobs will be looking to jump right back into contention. With a win over the ever game Ryder, Jacobs could very well set himself up to do just that.
Another notable fight is the co-main. The flawless Felix Cash (14-0-0), fresh from his retention of the commonwealth and gaining of the British middleweight title, looks to make an impact against 27-year-old Russian Magomed Madiev.
The card will be broadcast live from the Alexandra Palace on DAZN.
Best of the Rest
Boxing Heist II is another fun event out of London this weekend. Taking place at the Tolworth recreation centre, The headliner is contested by Berkshire lad Tony “TNT” Bange as he looks to extend his record to 9-1-0. His adversary that night will be Berman Sanchez, a Nicaraguan fighter with 29 career wins in what’s sure to be a great contest. John “The Don” Brennan also looks to take out an away team visitor in Mexican national Fernando Valencia in the co-main. A whole host of bright UK prospects prop up a solid night of fights over in Tolworth.
What fights are you most looking forward to this weekend?
