Europe’s #1 MMA promotion ACB returns to the United Kingdom on May 19th at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham, England with Manchester’s own Kane Mousah battling Scotland’s Robert Whiteford in a mouth-watering featherweight main event.
ACB 87 is the first major mixed martial arts show to head to Nottingham since September 2012. It marks the fifth time that the MMA supremos have descended upon the United Kingdom.
Kane Mousah returns to the ACB cage for the third time looking to retain his perfect record in the promotion, after previously defeating both Lewis Monarch and most recently Alex Enlund at ACB 70 last September. However, this will be the Mancunian’s first bout at featherweight and in usual Mousah form, he has not taken an easy opponent to test these waters.
Robert Whiteford also makes his third appearance under the ACB banner, after headlining ACB 47 in Glasgow with a decision victory over Kevin Petshi. Whiteford went on to submit UFC veteran Nam Phan in devastating fashion after just twenty-one seconds at ACB 54 in Manchester.
“I promise Robert Whiteford that he’s going to have a nightmare on his hands trying to deal with me” – Kane Mousah
Mousah said “This is the fight I have wanted for a long time. I’m going to show the world just how much of a savage I am. I promise Robert Whiteford that he’s going to have a nightmare on his hands trying to deal with me”
The battle between Mousah and Whiteford will headline a stacked fight card, featuring the best in domestic and international mixed martial artists. With more big announcements coming this week, ACB Nottingham is set to be an incredible night of fights.
