It has been announced today that Colin “Freakshow” Fletcher is set to Alex ‘Da Kid’ Lohore to BAMMA welterweight rank in front of Irish fans next month.
The Freakshow returns at BAMMA 28 after a tumultuous 2016, that saw him start the year in a contentious DQ loss with Walter ‘The Sniper’ Gahadza and finish off in style as he submitted Aymard Guih.
With the old Freakshow re-emerging, Colin Fletcher (13-7) is back training with Ross Pearson, Ryan Scope, Andrew Fisher and rest of the North East’s top MMA talent. With his aggressive nature back, Lohore could be in for a long night if Freakshow brings his arsenal of devastating kicks and dangerous ground game to the bout.
The newly signed Alex ‘Da Kid’ Lohore (10-1) is currently riding a 6 fight win streak that most recently saw him defeat ‘Dirty’ Harry Marple via submission at the end of the year. With an exhilarating style that is as good on the ground as it is standing, Lohore will be looking for the spectacular and a fast track to a BAMMA title shot and sees dispatching Freakshow as the perfect way to do this.
Hailing from France, the London based New Wave Academy fighter is coming to make a statement at BAMMA 28 and this bout will already be topping people’s lists as an early pick for fight of the night.
BAMMA 28 takes on Friday February 24 2017 in Belfast and will form part of the promotions second collaboration with Bellator MMA.
