BAMMA Fight Night: Chadwick vs. Pascu

United Kingdom Liverpool Olympia, Liverpool

Lee Chadwick vs. Ion Pascu tops the bill in Liverpool, as BAMMA promote their second Fight Night event.

Event Preview

BAMMA host the second in their new Fight Night series, and their first show in Liverpool, on August 2nd. It will take place at the Liverpool Olympia, host to big MMA and boxing events in the region for many years.

Topping the bill is a middleweight contest between local favourite Lee Chadwick, and London-based Romanian fighter Ion Pascu.

Chadwick (19-10) fights out of the local Atherton Submission Wrestling and has long been a favourite at the Olympia, holding titles under the OMMAC banner. He is riding an eight-fight win streak that has seen him defeat the likes of Denniston Sutherland, Valentino Petrescu and Nills van Noord.

Pascu (8-5) really announced himself when he knocked out Jack Marshman at BAMMA 13. The London-based Romanian has powerful striking and brings a lot of pressure. He'll be looking to stay out of the clutches of the strong wrestler Chadwick.

Rany Saadeh (6-1) and Jody Collins (7-2) will square off for the BAMMA flyweight title on the same card. Saadeh is 2-0 under the promotional banner, whilst Collins will be making his debut with them.

Undefeated Pietro Menga inks a deal with the promotion, and faces off against an old foe in Steve McCombe. Menga won via first round submission when they first met, but with three wins in his last four, McCombe is in good form.

Chris Hoban was due to be back in action against Tim Menzies but injury saw him replaced by Nathan Jones, ranked featherweights Shay Walsh and James Saville are booked, and Mike Berry and Danny Missin will square off at 125lbs. There are more bouts to be confirmed.
