Undefeated Paul Craig to Defend Light Heavyweight Title in BAMMA 26 Main Event

By Brian Knapp Aug 14, 2016
Paul Craig will defend the British Association of Mixed Martial Arts light heavyweight crown against Chris Fields in the BAMMA 26 headliner on Sept. 10 at 3 Arena in Dublin. The event will feature three other title fights, as John Phillips meets Andy DeVent for the middleweight championship, Alan Philpott faces Aaron Blackwell for the bantamweight belt and Rany Saadeh battles Andy Young for the flyweight strap.

Craig will carry a perfect 8-0 record into the cage. The Scottish Hit Squad representative has finished all eight of his opponents, seven of them by submission. Craig last appeared at BAMMA 23 in November, when he tapped Marcin Lazarz with a first-round triangle choke to claim the light heavyweight championship.

Fields trains out of the SBG Ireland camp, where he hones his skills alongside Ultimate Fighting Championship featherweight titleholder Conor McGregor. The 33-year-old has gone 1-3-1 across his past five outings. Fields last fought at BAMMA 24 on Feb. 27, when he submitted Dan Konecke with a first-round brabo choke.
