BAMMA 26: Kiefer Crosbie – Joe McColgan Booked

By Press Release

Two new bouts have been added to the BAMMA 26: Craig Vs. Fields Fightcard at the 3Arena, Dublin, Ireland on September 10th 2016.  The new bouts added are:

Kiefer Crosbie Vs. Joe McColgan (Welterweight Bout)

Gary ‘The Dumptruck’ Morris Vs. Darren ‘The Crazy Kid’ O’Gorman (Featherweight Bout)

Dave Sweeney has suffered an injury and is out of the Light Heavyweight Bout against Ben Forsyth.  A replacement will be announced shortly.

Kiefer Crosbie Vs. Joe McColgan (Welterweight Bout)

SBG’s Kiefer Crosbie (1-0) finally gets his opportunity on the biggest stage in Ireland after issuing an open challenge to get a spot on the BAMMA 26 fight card. His wish has become reality as McColgan answered the call to make his dream of fighting at the 3Arena come true.  After making a winning debut in April of this year against Keith McCabe (who faces Aidan Brooks at BAMMA 26) via a devastating KO, Crosbie now intends to put on a performance in front of his hometown crowd.  With Crosbie living within walking distance of the 3Arena, he will be sure to be bringing his absolute best for the crowd in attendance on the  night.

The man formerly known as ‘The SBG Hunter’ Joe McColgan (1-0) fights out of FAI (Fight Academy Ireland), alongside BAMMA 22′s Karl Moore & World IMMAF 2016 Gold medal winner Leah McCourt. McColgan made his pro debut in November of 2015 as he beat Tom Hogan via a rear naked choke.  Eagerly stepping up to Crosby’s open challenge, this will certainly be a fan favourite matchup on the night and one that is not be missed.

Gary ‘The Dumptruck’ Morris Vs. Darren ‘The Crazy Kid’ O’Gorman (Featherweight Bout)

Rush Academy’s Gary ‘The Dumptruck’ Morris (8-9) will be making his second appearance on a BAMMA event in Dublin after making his debut at BAMMA 24 against Sean Tobin. Despite coming up short that night, he has since gone on to score a victory over the previously undefeated Decky ‘The Diamond’ Dalton in a bout held in April.  Morris will be aiming to build on this win with another victory on the 10th September.

Darren ‘The Crazy Kid’ O’Gorman (3-1) hasn’t fought since his KO loss to rising star Frans Mlambo at BAMMA 22.  Now looking to get his career back on the winning track, O’Gorman faces Morris at BAMMA 26.  The Samson Martial Arts student and F.1.T centre trainer has been looking for an opportunity for redemption since the bout with Mambo and the opportunity to face Morris at BAMMA 26 will give him that chance.

BAMMA 26: Craig Vs. Fields is brought to you in association with UK broadcast partners Spike TV & Channel 5, Official Equipment Partners Lonsdale & Sports Direct, Buzz.ie, FM104, Safe MMA and takes place at the 3Arena on September 10th 2016.
