One of Ireland's most popular prospects Dylan 'The Nuke' Tuke (2-0) is stepping back in the cage we have today confirmed. He will head to enemy territory and face Next Gen Liverpool's Adam Ventre (4-2, 1 NC) in his own back yard at Shinobi MMA 8 on July 30th.
Tuke made a splash in his debut and subsequent fight stopping Adam Caffrey via submission at BAMMA 22 and then Mark Andrew via TKO at BAMMA 24, both in Dublin. This will be Tuke's first fight outside of his native city since turning pro.
The SBG fighter has had recent run-ins with Ventre's teammate Paddy Pimblett with the two exchanging harsh words via social media. With this fight taking place in Liverpool do expect the crowd to be against Tuke.
Ventre will be Tuke's most experienced opponent to date. He made his debut back in 2013 and went on a three-fight-win-streak, all stoppages, before suffering his first defeat to the much more experienced Aaron Blackwell.
Since then Ventre has went 1-1 with 1 no-contest. Both of his defeats have come via decision and all of his wins were by submission making his tough to finish and very dangerous on the ground. This should be a tough challenge for Tuke.
