A British fan favourite returns to MMA at BAMMA 30 on July 7 as Rob ‘C4’ Sinclair makes his comeback against Ireland’s former UFC star Paul ‘Redser’ Redmond at the 3Arena.
Sinclair was the promotion’s inaugural lightweight world champion and never lost his title in the cage as injuries robbed the Burnley man of a consistent run at the top of the BAMMA tree.
Injuries also hampered his shot in Bellator, with the Brit only making one appearance for the promotion in the States.
And after a decision loss to Charlie Leary last year at Full Contact Contender 17 it seemed we’d seen the last of Sinclair in competitive action.
But he makes his return to BAMMA on July 7 against Redmond, who lost out to Norman Parke by decision at BAMMA 28 in Belfast in February.
“The story isn’t over,” said Sinclair.
“I have unfinished business in BAMMA and I have one objective; to put myself back at the top in BAMMA, back where I belong and that starts with Paul Redmond.”
“I can’t wait to get back in there after my last performance,” said Redmond.
“Especially with the atmosphere that will be in the 3Arena. It’s going to be great.”
BAMMA CEO David Green said he was excited to bring another event to the popular Dublin venue.
“It’s the place where we get the loudest fans and some of the best atmosphere that we’ve had in the promotion’s history,” he explained.
“With our new broadcast partners Dave available in Ireland, fans from all over the country will be able to experience the event LIVE at home if they can’t get to the arena.
“But it’s going to be an event that you will want to be in the building for, to be able to say ‘I was there’.”
The event will also feature a lightweight clash between Phillip Mulpeter and Myles Price in a battle between two popular Irish stars, and both men are fired up and ready for the fray.
“Honeybadger is back!,” Mulpeter declared.
“BAMMA 30, July 7 at the 3Arena. Buckle up your seat belt Dorothy, ‘cos Kansas is going bye-bye!”
“I’m embracing the challenge and looking forward to bringing the win back to Team Ryano and Kilkenny,” said Price.
“But make no mistake, I respect Phil, but I will run through him come July 7th. My fight IQ is superior and my body will be peaked and ready come fight night.”
BAMMA 30 takes place on Friday 7th July at the 3Arena, Dublin. Tickets are on sale now.
