BAMMA 35: Full fight card and preview for Dublin event

BAMMA return this weekend for BAMMA 35 will take place on Saturday, 12th May 2018 at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland.

The main event features a welterweight bout between former champion Alex Lohore and Ion Pascu.

After winning the vacant BAMMA welterweight title against Nathan Jones at BAMMA 31, Lohore defended the title against Richard Kiely at BAMMA 32, winning via first-round submission. However, in his last bout, the Frenchman lost the title, losing a split decision to Terry Brazier at BAMMA 34. Lohore will look to get back on the track to the title when he faces Pascu in the main event of BAMMA 35.

After winning back-to-back bouts under the BAMMA banner, Pascu suffered his first loss in three last time out. A TKO win over Henry Fadipe at BAMMA 30 and a split decision win over Omar Jesus Santana at BAMMA 32 was followed most recently by a late replacement unanimous decision loss to Ed Ruth at Bellator 196.

The co-main event also features a welterweight bout as Kiefer Crosbie welcomes Josh Plant to Dublin.

Crosbie is currently undefeated in his professional MMA career going 3-0 in the process. His last two wins have come under the BAMMA banner with a second-round submission over Conor Riordan at BAMMA 27 before earning a first-round knockout over  Waldemar Cichy at BAMMA 30.

Following a win in his pro debut over Lawrence Tracey, Plant suffered a first-round submission loss to Justin Burlinson at BAMMA 33 in his second professional contest. However, he rebounded nicely in his last bout, earning a first-round submission win over John Nicholls at BAMMA 34.

Also featured on the main card is a middleweight bout between surging contender Fabian Edwards and Italian SBG fighter Claudio Conti.

After a perfect 10-0 amateur record, Edwards has also made a perfect start to his professional career amassing a 4-0 record to date. A TKO win over Rafał Cejrowski in his debut at Bellator 179 has been followed up by three straight submission wins over Aaron Kennedy at BAMMA 30, Louis King at BAMMA 33 and Kent Kauppinen most recently at BAMMA 34.

After losing three straight on the European circuit, Conti rebounded in his last bout earning a second-round submission over Emir Arsanov at WSFC 5 in November 2017.

The card also features a host of young Irish MMA talent looking to make a name for themselves under the BAMMA banner.
