The card for BAMMA 28 continues to take shape as it has been revealed this evening that two new bouts have been added to the event which takes place at Belfast’s SSE Arena on February 24th 2017.

In Lightweight action, newly crowned Lonsdale Lightweight Champion Rhys ‘Skeletor’ McKee takes on the ground wizard ‘Magic’ Myles Price.

McKee (5-0) will enter the BAMMA cage fresh off of the biggest win of his young career against Jai Herbert, as he heads home for the first defence of his title at the SSE Arena against Price.

The Next Generation Northern Ireland standout has already laid waste to a high calibre of opponents en route to his title win at BAMMA 27 and be looking to repeat the feat when faces off against Price.

His opponent ‘Magic’ Myles Price (9-6) makes BAMMA return after injury kept him out of two previously scheduled bouts.

The Team Ryan trained fighter will be eager to pick up where he left off in his last appearance at BAMMA 24 when claimed the biggest win of his career against Mario ‘Rudeboy’ Saaed, and will entered bout with the Lonsdale belt plainly in his sights.

The second bout added to the card features fan favourite John ‘Johnny Jitsu’ Redmond who goes up against the ‘Nigerian Diamond’ Pelu Adetola in a Middleweight battle. 

Never in a dull fight, Redmond (7-12) returns to BAMMA after being signed to a multi fight deal at the end of last year. When the action commences Johnny Jitsu will be looking to get back to winning ways after in his last bout at CW Unplugged the Irishman was on the wrong end of a spectacular 0:34 submission loss to Leeroy Barnes.

Adetola (3-5) who fights out of Team Titan in London, England returns once more to BAMMA at his new weight class of Middleweight to face off against Redmond.

Having last fought Ben ‘Spider Monkey” Forsyth to a close decision at BAMMA 26 in Dublin, Adetola will be looking to bring his power down to Middleweight and make a real impression at this weight class when he faces Redmond.
