Full Contact Contender returns this weekend for FCC 16, which takes place on June 18th at Bolton’s Macron Stadium. Headlining the card is a mouth-watering contest between triple-title holder Charlie Leary and resurgent UK mainstay Mick Bowman. In the co-main event, FCC regular Aaron Aby takes on top-ranked UK flyweight Andy ‘Taz’ Young for the FCC Flyweight title.
Team Crossface’s Leary (11-7-1) is on a career-best three-fight winning-streak, capturing the BUDO and BCMMA titles along the way.
Standing in his way will be The MMA Academy’s Mick Bowman. The former Wolfslair Prodigy and TUF contestant returned from a three and a half break from the sport at FCC 14, losing a spirited effort to Aymard Guih, before bouncing back with a big win over Aziz Stringer at FCC 15.
Cage Warriors and M-1 Challenge veteran Andy ‘Taz’ Young (8-7) is renowned for facing some of the toughest domestic and European talent at 125lbs. Following a career-best win over highly-touted Team Titan prospect Luis Gonzalez, Young will look to bring another signature show-shopping performance to The Macron.
Aaron Aby (7-2) will make his sixth promotional appearance as he challenges for his first major title on June 18th. The MMA Academy project will be looking for his fifth straight win. A student of Jason Tan, Aby – a Cystic Fibrosis sufferer – has used his career to raise awareness of his condition.
Elsewhere on the card, former FCC lightweight champion Ashley Reece makes his welterweight debut while BAMMA’s Tom Aspinall looks to get back on track after a disappointing DQ loss in his recent BAMMA outing.
