A huge fight for Irish MMA was announced today today. Tommy Quinn (7-4) and Konrad Iwanowski (6-3) will fight for the MTK European Middleweight title on November 17 in Newcastle, England at MTK: The Rising.
The Newcastle-based Quinn made his MTK MMA debut earlier this year with a second round TKO win over well-travelled French veteran Vincent del Guerra (24-20). This win put an end to a bad patch for Quinn following a number of injuries that only saw him compete three times since 2013.
Quinn has been competing professionally since 2008 and holds wins over the likes of Philip Mulpeter, Shaun Lomas and Dan Hope and is a Cage Warriors veteran.
Although he hails from Poland, Konrad Iwanowski has been part of the Irish MMA scene for his entire MMA career and is a member of the SBG Swords and Fantom fight teams in Dublin.
A KSW and Cage Warriors veteran, Iwanowski will be looking to get back in the win column after narrowly losing his last contest by split decision.
Both Quinn and Iwanowski have proved that they always come to fight. This has all the makings of a classic.
