Celtic Gladiators hits the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester in Feb 24th and we are pleased to announce our main event; Pietro ‘Pitbull’ Menga (13-0) steps back into the cage for the first time since July 2016 as he takes on wily Brazilian Raymison Bruno Souza De Oliviera (Raymison 'Formiga' Bruno 10-1)
Menga is coming off the disappointment of being unable to make weight for a short notice fight in the UFC but that hasn’t dampened his spirits: “It was always a big ask to make it [the weight 126lbs] on such short notice and regardless of the outcome I gained a lot from the whole experience. I’m concentrating on the kind of shape and world class performance in my next fight only. If anything it has most certainly added fuel to the fire. I believe im one of the best flyweights in the world and fight night is going to be something special for me and my fans.”
It might be a new year, and believe us we're taking things to the next level with a mammoth show lined up on the 27th of January in Chicago. On this particular card one huge clash that has all of Chicago MMA talking is that between Brian Peterson & Jason Belyew. Both these heavyweights are incredibly well-known in the locality & are vastly experienced, on top of both of them having big reputations.
It certainly didn’t take very long for Celtic Gladiator 17 to make a huge impression on the Southern California fight fans as Sochiro Sasaki needed only :17 seconds to bring the crow to their feet with a huge knockout victory over Samuel Tucker. Tucker came out aggressive looking to establish his range with along front kick, but Sasaki defended well and kept his right hand cocked by his ear, before uncorking a hellish counter that dropped tucker instantly forcing the referee to stop the fight.
