Regis Sugden believes a rematch against BAMMA bantamweight title contender Alan Philpott ‘wouldn’t go out the first round’.

MMA fighter Sugden (4-1) recently got back to winning ways, beating Arturo Chavez after almost two years away from the cage.

After recovering from major surgery on his foot, Sugden made his comeback at Tanko FC 4 in May, where he beat Mexican Chavez by unanimous decision.

Prior to Sugden’s lengthy time on the sidelines, he fought at BAMMA 22 in Dublin, Ireland where he lost to Philpott. It was a fight which Sugden admitted his injury plagued his performance. He then laid down the challenge for a rematch with his Northern Irish foe at featherweight.

This Friday, July 7 at BAMMA 30 in Dublin, Philpott competes for the BAMMA world bantamweight championship against Shay Walsh.

MMA Plus caught up with Regis at Suggy’s Gym to find out his thoughts on Philpott, and what the future holds for him, as Sugden also reveals his ‘list’ of potential victims.
