Simona Soukupova is officially out of her BAMMA 22 bout with Catherine Costigan with an undisclosed injury. Norway’s Celine Haga steps in as replacement to face Costigan in BAMMA’s debut in Ireland.
BAMMA officially announced the injury and replacement this afternoon.
Haga (7-13 MMA) went 1-11 in her first 12 professional bouts. 6-2 in her last 8 bouts however has seen a career resurgance for the Norwegian fighter. Coming off a first round submission over Alyssa Garcia at BAMMA USA – Badbeat 16 in June, Haga will look to upset the Irish Costigan in her home country.
Catherine Costigan (5-1 MMA) looks to get back into the win column after a unsuccessful outing against Amber Brown at Invicta FC 13. The Limerick fighter will make her first Irish appearance since defeating Noellie Molina in August 2014 at The Helix.
