Cork's Dillon Manning has captured a second amateur title in two countries in just a couple of weeks.
Two weeks ago he won the Cage Legacy middleweight title with a first round TKO win over Cormac Copeland in Drogheda, Ireland and he followed this up yesterday with a first round submission win at Battle Arena MMA 44 in Birmingham, England.
Manning faced Anthony Peters from Impact MMA in Salisbury, a fighter who was coming in from back-to-back TKO wins.
"The fight was good, sure who doesn't want a first round stoppage (laughs)," Manning told us after the fight. "I got a good arm lock but I wish I stood and banged more because my hands have been moving good but that is the way MMA goes.
"I just want to thank my dad and coach Seamus, my brothers especially Lloyd hes always teaching me new stuff, Body Chef for my food and my girlfriend Alison who organises everything else for me and is very patient with me."
