FCC is proud to announce the initial batch of bouts for FCC 14: The Fourth Anniversary. A mixture of FCC favourites and new faces highlight the first officially confirmed contests, as the likes of Mick Bowman, Ashley Reece, Dez Parker, Aaron Aby, former amateur light-heavyweight champion Shaun Hampton and Javonne Morrison lace up the FCC gloves.
Chief amongst FCC 14’s initial offerings is the return to action of North West favourite and Ultimate Fighter participant Mick Bowman, in a welterweight contest against storied UKMMA veteran Shah ‘No Pain’ Hussain. Bowman has taken a sabbatical from MMA since his 2012 defeat to the UFC’s Ian Entwistle, a loss which broke an impressive five fight winning streak. A former Wolfslair fighter now competing out of Liverpool MMA Academy, Bowman will be looking to get back into contention on the UK circuit against Hussain.
Shah Hussain was one half of the first ever professional contest on an FCC card, putting up a spirited effort against Martin Stapleton at FCC 4. Hussain has fought a who’s who of UKMMA’s cast of characters at a number of weights, and will be aiming to send Bowman back to the woodshed on October 17th.
Promoter Adam Teh said, “It’s almost been four years, but the amount of action we’ve packed in to the 13 FCC events so far makes it feel like a whirlwind of barely four minutes! On October 17th we’re going all-out with what is looking like the biggest FCC card ever, so it’s only fitting that our first ever professional fighter, Shah Hussain, is returning to face another North West favourite in Mick Bowman.”
Elsewhere on the card, Ashley ‘The Beast’ (1-0) Reece will look to continue his incredible FCC streak as he faces another unbeaten opponent; UTC’s Tobias Reid. Regarded as perhaps the best lightweight prospect in the country, Reece will look to notch up his second professional scalp against a product of one of UKMMA’s most dynamic gyms.
Dez ‘The Arm Collector’ Parker (5-3) will endeavour to bounce back from a narrow decision loss at FCC 13, as he takes on the 5-2 Dan Rushworth of Team Elite. Tommy ‘Skelator’ Miller will face Cystic Fibrosis campaigner and talented scrapper Aaron Aby, while Ian ‘Willy’ Williams and Mikey ‘The Pikey’ Cast
