OKTAGON 48: Jake vs. Paul
A tournament that will usher in a new era of OKTAGON MMA
Europe's best MMA show will make its UK debut on November 4th with OKTAGON 48 at the AO Arena in Manchester.
An event like this deserves the biggest MMA stars, including a clash between two Brits no one would have expected to see in the cage. One of the UK's most famous comedians, Paul Smith, will take on reality TV star Jake Quickenden.
OKTAGON’s 1st ever flyweight championship fight will see Aaron Aby, one of Europe’s best flyweights, fighting Elias Garcia, who has never been defeated outside of the UFC.
The night will also bring the grand finale of MMA reality TV show OKTAGON Challenge: England vs Ireland. Will the champion be from England or Ireland?
Scott Askham, fighting scene titan and former #12 globally, will face off against finisher Doussis, who has managed to score all of his 9 wins before the limit.
3-time Cage Warriors champ Jack Cartwright will go head to head for the bantamweight division title #1 contender spot.
A fiery clash between #3 and #5 in the welterweight division. 2-time OKTAGON title challenger Alex Lohoré will enter the cage with "Dracula" Surdu, who boasts 9 1st round finishes.
The bitter rivalry between rising Liverpool star Shem Rock, who spent a decade on the run because of a crime he did not commit, and Czech MMA legend Jaroslav Pokorný – a police officer by profession – will be settled once and for all.
Bomber “Gameover” Polívka aims to give another fighter a harsh sendoff to retirement. But Liverpool's "Butcher" Lee Chadwick, who holds belts in 5 organizations, will not go down easy. He is eager to end his 48th MMA fight with a clear victory before hanging up his gloves for good.
"J3DI" Wanliss, who put on an impressive performance in his OKTAGON debut with a quick KO finish, will go up against "British Slayer" Bahník.
All this and much more, accompanied by an amazing audiovisual show that will enhance your experience of the whole tournament.
