A number one contender bout for the Lonsdale lightweight title has been confirmed for the BAMMA 30 as Rhys McKee will face SBG rising star Richie Smullen.
BAMMA 30 takes place on July, 7th at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland.
McKee (5-1 MMA) had a perfect start to his professional career finishing his first five bouts, four via TKO and his first professional win via submission. In his last bout, McKee suffered his first loss, a first round TKO defeat to Tim Barnett to lose the title he hopes to take a step closer to regaining at BAMMA 30.
Smullen (3-0) earned two first round submission wins in his first two bouts over Jay Moogan and Andrew Murphy. In his most recent bout, the SBG prospect earned a first-round TKO win over Jonny Saville at Shinobi War 10.
