Irish middleweight and TUF veteran Chris Fields (10-6-1) has been confirmed for the BAMMA 22 card in Dublin’s 3Arena this September.
Fields will face France’s Christopher Jacquelin (6-2) in the co-main event. Jacquelin has a dangerous submission game winning five of six victories via submission, all of which were in the first round. He did lose his last match in March losing by submission himself to Maciej Rozanski (6-0).
The two were originally supposed to meet at BAMMA 21 but the Irishman suffered an injury close to the fight and this ruled him out.
Fields had returned to the cage this past February at BAMMA 18 after over 18 months out of action, although he had competed on The Ultimate Fighter with teammate Cathal Pendred in between then. It wasn’t a triumphant comeback for Fields however as he suffered a devastating TKO loss just 23 seconds into his fight with Cheick Kone, his first TKO loss in nearly six years.
Fields is 1-3-1 in his past five fights and will be seeking to get back to winning ways with this fight and attempt to make a run at BAMMA middleweight gold.
