“So pumped up to be making my debut at 205lb,” he said. “I’m motivated and hungry, that can only mean trouble for Brett. Nobody is the division is as powerful and explosive as I am.”

McDermott represents Flex MMA out of Manchester, and this fight will mark his return since a BAMMA 12 second round submission loss to Thomas Denham.

“Oli Thompson has fought some of the biggest names on some of  the biggest shows in the MMA circuit, to fight him on a show as great as BAMMA is going to be the highlight of my mma career,” McDermott said. “He’s a mountain of a man which I’m ready to climb to try and gain the victory”
