BAMMA UK Announces Costigan vs. Soukupova; Kavanagh vs. Oyzurt

11667282_10153043198777285_2186427607575069086_nBAMMA UK has announced two female bouts on their Dublin, Ireland card September 19th.

In a clash of InvictaFC vets, hometown fighter Catherine Costigan will battle Simona Soukupova at atomweight. Costigan (5-1) is coming off her first loss of her career at InvictaFC 13 to Amber Brown. She has submitted her opponents in four of her wins.

Soukupova (5-3) defeated Iman Darabi this past May by knee KO. She has a notable win over Cassie Roddish and has found better success at 105, having never lost at that weight.

Irish sensation Sinead Kavanagh will be making her pro debut against the Netherlands’ Hatice Oyzurt. Kavanagh is a national amateur  champion boxer in Ireland and trains out of SGB with Aisling Daly and Connor MacGregor. The Irishwoman made an immediate impact gaining a devastating first round KO at the IMMAF tournament earlier this month. She would go on to take second in her division.

Oyzurt made her return to MMA after a three year absence from the sport in May, losing by submission to Ji Yeon Kim in South Korea.

The matches will stream online. We will have more information as the event approaches.
