Rany Saadeh vs. Chris Miah flyweight title fight set for BAMMA 23

The fight that was supposed to take place BAMMA 20 has been rebooked for BAMMA 23 as Rany Saadeh looks to defend his flyweight title against hometown boy Chris Miah.

BAMMA 23: Night Of Champions will take place on Saturday 14th November 2015 at the Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham.

BAMMA Flyweight Champion Rany Saadeh (7-1) will look to defend his title for the first time in a rematching of the bout that was originally scheduled for BAMMA 20 before Saadeh’s withdrawal. Now fully recovered (and in between crime fighting in his home in Berlin), Saadeh is fully prepared for the upcoming challenge of Miah in November. Currently riding a four fight win streak, he will look to continue that and end Miah’s rise in the Flyweight ranks.

I am ready for this fight. I was ready for this fight ages ago. I can’t imagine being more ready when we stand face to face and the cage door gets locked. This fight will be hell for Chris Miah.

— Rany Saadeh

Chris ‘Nightmare’ Miah (7-0) will finally get his chance at the BAMMA Flyweight Title after having the previous bout cancelled at BAMMA 20. Taking on replacement Daniel Barez he ended the bout in dominant fashion as he secured the match winning rear naked choke in just 1:46 of the second round to keep his unblemished record intact. Miah has sights set on the BAMMA Flyweight Title and dominating the division for some time to come.

Finally I get my chance to bring home the BAMMA gold after Rany unfortunately was unable to compete earlier this year. However it enabled me to stay active and I’m more than ready to dominate en route to the BAMMA title
