Next Generation MMA: Liverpool will feature heavily on the MTK Global MMA Liverpool card on Saturday 30th June at the Liverpool Olympia.
The Next Generation MMA: Liverpool team will be well represented on the card with Anthony O’Connor, Adam Wilson, Ben Kelly and Jamie Small. The gym is home to former Cage Warriors champions Paddy “The Baddie” Pimblett, Molly “Meatball” McCann and Chris Fishgold. The team is lead by head coach Paul Rimmer, who became Merseyside’s first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt in 2014. Rimmer was awarded his BJJ Black Belt by UFC and Pride veteran Chris Brennan.
Anthony O’Connor (3-2) scored a first-round stoppage over Antonio Sheldon in his last bout at UK Fighting Championships 6. Antony went 2-2 as an amateur with victories over Ste Walker and Beau Gavin.
Adam Wilson (1-0) will be making an appearance on the card for his second professional bout. Wilson defeated Tom Pedreno via decision in his first professional fight at ICE FC 19 last November. Adam went 4-3 in the amateur ranks, where the majority of his wins came by submission.
Ben Kelly (0-1) will be looking to earn his first amateur win in MMA competition. Kelly was outboxed and stopped by Paddy Wilkinson in his first amateur bout at Shinobi War 11: Winter Warfare last December.
Bantamweight Jamie Small (2-0) launched his amateur career with a first-round TKO against Michael Mulvenna at Cage Warriors Academy North West 2 last September. Small followed up with a split decision victory against Sam Gittins at Cage Warriors 90 in February.
