Tim Wilde to face Alibek Achazaev and Miah vs Abreu set for ACB 87 in Nottingham

Tim Wilde makes his ACB debut in Nottingham, with the Cannock-based lightweight having already won two fights in 2018, including a victory over tough Frenchman Anthony Dizy last weekend! “The Experiment” is looking to make his mark on the ACB lightweight division and his opponent is no stranger to the 155lbs division.

Berkut Fight Club’s Alibek Achazaev makes his eighth promotional appearance, with this marking the second two he has fought outside of Russia. The Grozny-based man has never been finished in his ten mixed martial arts bouts, and will look to build on his victory over Oberdan Vieira at ACB 78 in January 2018.

Can Tim Wilde become the first man to stop Alibek Achazaev? Or will Achazaev stop Wilde’s three-fight winning streak!? One thing is for sure… you don’t want to miss it!

Also announced for the card is British prospect Chris Miah, who will look to improve his impressive 8-1 record as he makes his bantamweight debut against Brazil’s Carlos ‘Crocodilo’ Abreu.

Miah has won seven of his eight fights inside the distance, with his sole loss coming to UFC flyweight Jarred Brooks back in 2016. Carlos Abreu will fight outside of his native Brazil for the first time, with the bantamweight currently riding a two-fight winning streak after victories on Aspera FC and Shooto Brasil.

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.
