Fight Announcements – January 4th

The big fights keep on coming including a big light heavyweight clash in March and former Bellator champion Eduardo Dantas returns to action.

Bellator 215:

Bellator’s first fight announcement for 2019 is an intriguing bantamweight contest between Eduardo Dantas (20-6) and Manny Vazquez (12-3) on February 15th. MMA first reported the bout agreement.

UFC 235:

Though UFC 235 this March is still without an official headlining fight, there is still plenty on offer for fight fans.

The UFC announced overnight that light-heavyweights Misha Cirkunov (14-4) and Ovince Saint-Preux (23-12) are to do battle in Las Vegas on the PPV card.

UFC London:

Gokhan Saki (1-2) vs Saparbek Safarov (8-2)

ONE Championship 88:

Honorio Banario (14-7) vs Lowen Tynanes (9-0). ONE’s first card of the year is due to take place on January 25th and will be streamed for free on the ONE Championship app which is available for UK and Irish fans.

ACA 92:

The new look ACA (formerly ACB League) hosts it’s first event in Warsaw, Poland in February and features a middleweight fight between Luke Barnatt (14-6) and Jorge Gonzalez (14-4)

The promotion had attempted a PPV style model with very poor results and ended up streaming their events on YouTube for free. Irish and UK viewers should be able to catch the action by similar means but it is unclear whether or not the new ACA model will continue on with a PPV model.
