BAMMA returned to Dublin’s 3Arena for the second time in five months tonight, the theme was Ireland v England as most bouts placed fighters from opposite sides of the Irish sea inside the octagon.

These shows have become a breeding ground for the next generation of Irish talent, and a testament to the popularity of mixed martial arts in the country as both shows drew large crowds to Dublin's largest indoor arena.

SBGi prospect Dylan ‘The Nuke’ Tuke lived up to his growing hype taking out Mark ‘The Prophet’ Andrew after just 0:51 seconds.

The 145 pound, 6'0 foot 20 year old Dubliner brought the 3Arena to its feet with this clinical knee - wild punch flurry - hammer fist - finish.  

Frenchman Tom ‘Fire kid’ DuQuesnoy took out Ireland's Damien ‘The Rage’ Rooney with this brutal round one finish.

Fighting at bantamweight, Rooney sustained damage in the opening exchanges and never recovered - the fight ended within 90 seconds.

Ireland's ‘Magic’ Myles Price saw off Mario ‘Rudely’ Saeed with this clinical body shot.

The striker waved goodbye to his opponent after securing the TKO, 1:24 into the second round.

There was a local score to be settled when SBGi's Wexford's Brian ‘Pikeman’ Moore entered the cage to fight Mick ‘Basher’ Brennan from Kilkenny.

The Pikeman ended the attritional affair with this ferocious volley of elbows on the floor.

‘The Housewives Choice’ Chris Fields says that he's coming for the light heavy weight title after locking in this Darce choke in the first round against Dan Konecke.

The veteran secured one of the largest cheers of the night in Dublin's docklands.
