Diakiese to Selvarajah || ‘I am looking to take your head off from the start’


BAMMA Lonsdale Lightweight champion Marc Diakiese is not playing around and when it comes to his opponent at BAMMA 22, he has one simple message — ‘Make sure you are ready, Im coming out and looking to take your head off from the start’.

BAMMA takes place on 19 September 2015 at the 3 Arena in Dublin, Ireland. It will be the first event that BAMMA has held in Ireland. The event will be headlined by a featherweight title fight between champion Tom Duquesnoy and challenger Brendan Loughnane.

Diakiese (7-0 MMA) will look to defend his title for the first time following his title win over Jack McGann at BAMMA 19 in March 2015. Rick Selvarajah (7-0 MMA) is coming into this title fight off the back of a split decision win over Jefferson George at BAMMA 20 in April earlier this year.
