Dylan Tuke vs Sean Tobin set for 16th December in Dublin


Sources have confirmed to us today that undefeated SBG Ireland prospect Dylan Tuke (3-0) will return to action to take on Trials MMA’s Sean Tobin (4-2) at Bellator 169 and BAMMA 27 joint show on Friday 16th December 2016 at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland

Dylan “The Nuke” Tuke is coming off a 2nd round technical submission victory over Adam Ventre after surviving a tough first round which saw Ventre drop Tuke with strikes at Shinobi War 8 in July 2016.

Sean “The Machine” Tobin won his last outing against veteran Gary Morris at BAMMA 24 in February 2016. The Limerick man also holds decision victories over the always tough James McErlean and Neil Ward in the pro ranks.

We caught up with Tuke to get his prediction for the bout: “He’s very tough so I could see myself battering him in the first and either finishing him late first or early second round.”

“I have a lot of things to make up for so he’s going to get it on December 16th.”

“The Nuke will be back to stake his claim for the title shot”

We also spoke to Tobin who told us: “I’m looking forward to the challenge. Tuke is a good up and coming prospect, this loss will be good for him and his development.”

“I see us having a high paced fight with me getting him out of there inside the distance.”

Tickets go on sale at Ticketmaster on Friday 14th October 2016 at 9am IST (Irish and UK time).
