About

Motorpoint Arena
Saturday 19 May 2018
Tickets: £22.40 - £168

Europe’s #1 MMA promotion ACB returns to the UK on 19 May at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham. Manchester’s Kane Mousah will be battling Scotland’s Robert Whiteford in the featherweight main event. 

ACB 87 is the first major mixed martial arts show to head to Nottingham since September 2012. It marks the fifth time that the MMA supremos have descended upon the UK.

Kane Mousah returns to the ACB cage for the third time looking to retain his perfect record in the promotion, after previously defeating both Lewis Monarch and most recently Alex Enlund at ACB 70 last September. However, this will be the Mancunian’s first bout at featherweight and in usual Mousah form, he has not taken an easy opponent to test these waters.

Robert Whiteford also makes his third appearance under the ACB banner, after headlining ACB 47 in Glasgow with a decision victory over Kevin Petshi. Whiteford went on to submit UFC veteran Nam Phan in devastating fashion after just twenty-one seconds at ACB 54 in Manchester.

English middleweight standout Scott Askham returns to the ACB cage to face tough Russian striker Ibragim Chuzhigaev in the co-main event at ACB 87. Askham returns to ACB after successfully defeating Polish favourite Michal Materla with a first-round knockout earlier this year. He was also victorious in the main event of ACB 70, when he defeated British rival Luke Barnatt in front of a partisan crowd in Sheffield. 

His opponent, Ibragim Chuzhigaev is no stranger to fighting on British soil. The Berkut Fight Club middleweight has been victorious in all three of his fights in the UK, stopping each opponent inside the distance. He was victorious over Will Noland as chief support to Askham at ACB 70.
