Rock Ferry man triumphs at MMA event

Recently, Full Contact Contender hosted its 37th MMA, ‘FCC 37’ event at the Olympia in Liverpool that was streamed live on UFC Fight Pass – the largest combat sports streaming platform in the world. 

A fighter from Rock Ferry, Jamie Davies, made his second pro appearance and finished his opponent with an impressive rear naked choke in the second round, taking him to 2-0 as a professional.

He had a stand-out amateur career, with a record of 4-0 and was the FCC Amateur Welterweight Champion. His goal now is to work towards winning the professional title. 

Jaimie told Birkenhead News, “You ain’t seen nothing yet, this is just the beginning. A lot of hard work has gone into this. I’m coming for everyone!”

A spokesperson for FCC said, “Jamie is a great prospect in MMA and also a local businessman who runs his own barber shop. It would be fantastic if we could get the people of the Wirral behind this local lad.”
