Cage Legacy’s first event of 2019 takes place this Saturday from Lucan’s Finnstown Castle Hotel with two title fights on the line.
With the recent Bellator card in Dublin last month, MMA’s popularity in Ireland shows no signs of slowing down and with Cage Legacy on the horizon, the promotion is set to showcase some of the country’s best amateur talent who are hoping to make their mark in 2019 and beyond.
Fans are set for an explosive night of fights this coming Saturday as Mikey Byrne (3-0) and Patrick Lehane (3-6) are set to duke it out in the main event for the vacant featherweight strap.
Lehane is no stranger to the Cage Legacy promotion and the heavy handed Cork native is looking to deal Byrne his first loss as an amateur.
However, the tricky Byrne has shown some beautiful submission skills on the canvas in recent times with two slick armbar finishes to his credit.
Also on the card, Emil Platek (7-1) meets Soloman Simon (3-0) for the vacant lightweight title in the co-main event slot in one of Cage Legacy’s most anticipated fight since their inception.
Fans are likely to be treated to an all out war with two very well rounded fighters this early on in their respective careers.
Both men are heavy handed strikers with knock out power at their disposal and this one could very well be a strikers delight in front of a near capacity crowd.
Tickets for the event can be bought here and are priced at €30.
