In the standout Amateur fight on the bill Mike Castell of Hyde MMA will take on the aggressive Mark Halford for the UCC Amateur Lightweight Title.

U77kg: Billy Glossop (Hyde MMA) vs. Ste Winder (Te Sheng Do – Newton Heath)

Amateur NSAC
U70kg Title Fight: Mike Castell (Hyde MMA) vs. Mark Halford (Northern Structure MMA)

U74kg: Lloyd Cooper (Next Gen MMA) vs. Joel DeVent (Frontline MMA)
U72kg: Adam Syme (12 Gauge MMA) vs. Gaz Sykes (Wolfslair)

This win takes ‘Our Kid’ to 3-2 as a Professional, while Winder, the trainer at Te Sheng Do, Newton Heath, drops to 0-2 after his first fight since 2007.

Chris Phythian started well against Te Sheng Do’s Luke Ryder, implementing some good strikes and landing a successful takedown. However, the taller Ryder swept Phythian, ending up in mount. Despite a spirited effort from Hyde MMA’s Phythian to stay in the bout and Ryder looking more tired as the session went on, the fight was eventually stopped after 3:30, giving Ryder a debut victory, and dropping Chris to 0-2 at Semi Pro.
