FCC 15 takes place at Bolton’s Macron Stadium on March 5, 2016.
Tim Wilde vs Martin Delaney will feature as one half of FCC 15’s double main event. The pair will meet at 155lbs and contest the promotion’s vacant European lightweight title. The second half of the main event on FCC 15 features the return of lightweight champion Brendan Loughnane who looks to defend his belt against David Lee.
UTC’s Wilde (7-1 MMA) is one of UKMMA’s most exciting up and coming prospects. An unorthodox, dynamic and relentless striker, Wilde’s constant movement and unique angles make him impossible to emulate and incredibly difficult to defeat; as evidenced by a record already strewn
“I’m looking forward to fighting on FCC for the first time…” said Wilde. “It’s a professionally run show that always puts on exciting fight cards. I’m super excited to be topping the bill and I can’t wait to to show all the FCC fans what I’m about!”
“Martin Delaney is a tough, gritty Scot who comes to fight…” he continued. “He’ll be my toughest test to date but I’m confident. Once I’ve beat him I’ll be solidifying my spot as a top 155lb’er in the Dinky Ninja’s Martin Delaney (111) may well be Wilde’s polar opposite. With 12 pro fights to his name, the Scot has carved out a reputation as a nononsense, meat and potatoes fighter. With highlevel Judo credentials and gritty, bullying style, Delaney will be looking to extend his current winningstreak to four on March 5
A man of few words, Delaney’s message to Wilde was short and sweet…
“Its going to be a good start to 2016 when I take the FCC European lightweight title!”
Also added to the card is Wilde’s stablemate Tobias ‘The Development’ Reid . Reid, who lost a closely contested splitdecision to fellow prospect Ashley ‘The Beast’ Reece at FCC 14, takes on France’s Christopher Sengele.
FCC favourite Ashley Reece also returns to the cage on March 5 Konmon Deh as he looks to maintain his undefeated streak.
Finally, an amateur lightweight title bout pitting MDMA’s unbeaten Michael Davies against FCPC’s Antonio Sheldon has also been confirmed for March 5.
Promoter Adam Teh said… “We’re loading the deck again for FCC 15! I’m proud to promote such a prestigious headliner between two of the British Isles’ top 155lbers, and the addition of Ashley Reece and Tobias Reid reinforces our commitment to showcasing the next wave of homegrown talent. With the four bout we’ve announced today, the future looks bright for the lightweight division!”
