When fighters face hurdles, they must face them fearlessly and head on. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a fighter who does just that. Every time he enters the cage he faces two hurdles, his opponent and Cystic Fibrosis, but allows neither one to stand in his path to becoming the best. A professional since June 2013 and representing MMA Academy Liverpool, Aaron Aby owns a 7-3 record in ten career bouts consisting of three submissions, three decisions and one knockout.
In his MMA debut, Aaron defeated Josh Bangert via Unanimous decision. Then he submitted John Spencer via rear naked choke in round one. Aby also tapped out Scott Gregory in the first round via armbar at FCC 10. In 2015, Aaron knocked out Ben Dearden in the first round at FCC 12 followed by a submission of Frenchman Sebastien Louchet at ICE FC 6. Aby returned to Full Contact Contender to face Frenchman Karim Miard at FCC 14 and defeated him via Unanimous decision. In 2016, Aaron faced Adrian Ponz and defeated him via Unanimous decision. This inspiring fighter faces every challenge that stands in his way with courage and grace!
