Bantamweight fighter Mike Wootten (8-0-0) returns to the British Association of Mixed Martial Arts (BAMMA) as the hometown hero, where he will battle Frenchman Peter Liger (4-0-0) at BAMMA 17.
It all takes place December 6th, at the Victoria Warehouse in Liverpool.
Wootten was a Team Rousey member of Season 18’s Ultimate Fighter, losing in the semifinals against the season winner, Team Tate’s Chris Holdsworth.
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
“I’m Looking forward to fighting on BAMMA again against Ligier,” Woottern said. “I enjoyed my first outing on the promotion and look forward to showcasing my skills again on BAMMA.”
This is a good opportunity for Lieger for showcase himself against a more experienced fighter.
“For me it’s a good opportunity to show what I am able to do in a big European Organization against someone like Mike, is a young talented fighter undefeated,” Ligier said.
“He’s fighting in his own town, in front of his fans. He have more experience, than me but I have “nothing to lose” I just want to be among the top of my division, put on a great show and then why not continue with BAMMA to take that belt.”
