Dylan ‘The Nuke’ Tuke Vs. Neil Ward (Bantamweight Bout)
Dylan ‘The Nuke’ Tuke (1-0) made a huge statement in his pro debut at BAMMA 22, where he submitted Adam Caffery with a Rear Naked Choke in just 3:27 of the first round. The SBG Ireland star trains alongside BAMMA 24’s Peter ‘The Showstopper’ Queally and will now be joining him on the February 27th card at the 3Arena.
Neil Ward (1-1) makes his promotional debut at BAMMA 24. The Dubliner who trains out of Rush Fight Academy will be looking to get back in the win column after suffering his first defeat at the hands of Sean Tobin in December of 2014. With a record of 4-2 in his amateur career, Ward takes the majority of his wins via TKO.
Sean Tobin Vs. Gary ‘The Dumptruck’ Morris (Bantamweight Bout)
Sean Tobin (3-2) makes his second appearance at BAMMA after coming up short in his tough battle with Mark Andrew at BAMMA 22. One of Trials MMA head coaches, the fighter from Cork will be looking to put things back on a winning track on the biggest platform in Europe, when he once again walks out in front of the raucous Dublin crowd at the 3Arena.
Gary ‘The Dumptruck’ Morris (7-8) fighting out of Rush Academy is another fighter making his BAMMA debut at BAMMA 24. Morris is known as ‘The Dumptruck’ because of his tendency to pick an opponent up when they have him in a submission attempt, lift them above his head and ‘dump’ them down to the mat. Morris hasn’t fought since 2011 but is making his comeback on the 27th February 2016 at the 3Arena.
