The card will be headlined by a bout between Alex “The Mean Albatross” Montagnani and Shah “No Pain” Hussain. Montagnani (10-3-1) is a BAMMA and Cage Warriors veteran fighting out of Yorkys Gym and representing the Savage Squad. Hussain (11-12) was last seen in action against UFC veteran John Maguire at Rise of Champions 4 last September.
A featherweight bout between Charlie Wright and Jordan “Pretty Boy” Powell will feature on the amateur card. Wright (4-1) recently became a two-division champion by capturing the WCMMA lightweight and featherweight titles in his last two bouts. The Keddles Gym representative defeated Will Drewitt at WCMMA 32 to win the featherweight championship. Jordan Powell will be looking to rebound from the first loss of his career on the card. Powell (2-1) recently challenged for the vacant WCMMA featherweight title against Will Drewitt. Jordan Powell is a member of the talented Savage Squad team alongside up-and-coming fighters like Jahreau Shepherd, Rico Biggs, and Ruben Lindo.
Former Muay Thai world champion Charlie “Boy” Peters will make his MMA debut against Will “Carnage” Cairns. The Double K representative recently traveled to the USA to work on his Jiu-Jitsu at 10th Planet Austin, where he trained with Eddie Bravo black belt Marvin Castelle and UFC veteran Carlos Condit.
