With just over three weeks to go before ACB 87 arrives in Nottingham, England, Europe’s number one MMA promotion have added two more exciting fights to an already stacked card.
Former Cage Warriors and BAMMA star Tim Wilde (12-3-0) will make his ACB debut in a lightweight bout against Berkut Fight Club’s ACB veteran Alibek Achazaev (8-2-0). Wilde has already fought and won twice in 2018 including an impressive KO victory over Anthony Dizy just last weekend. That win took the 30-year-old Staffordshire native’s win streak to three fights with two of those three wins coming by KO/TKO.
Achazaev will be making his eighth appearance under the ACB lights when he faces Wilde in Nottingham. The Grozy based lightweight has never been finished in his ten fight MMA career and after alternating wins and loses in his last four fights, will be looking to build on his decision victory over Oberdan Vieira at ACB 78 in January.
26-year-old Team Titan fighter Chris Miah (8-1-0) is set to make his bantamweight debut when he faces fellow promotional debutant Carlos Abreu (6-2-0). Miah has picked up seven of his eight career wins inside the distance with the sole blot on his record being a decision loss to UFC flyweight Jarred Brooks back in 2016.
Abreu will be making his first appearance outside his native Brazil when he places his two fight winning streak on the line against Miah in Nottingham on May 19th.
