Two up and coming flyweights are set to collide at the UCFC:5 event when Allegiance MMA’s Danny Missin takes on HAMMA prodigy Coner Hignett.
Missin who is currently 2-0, has defeated some tough opposition since he turned pro in October, defeating Anthony Ferguson by armbar at Lockdown 4 and Gavin Davies at Cage Control by TKO. Currently training at Allegiance MMA under Neil Hall, Missin will be looking to move to 3-0 and keep up what has earned him the title of a hot prospect.
From one hot prospect to another, Coner Hignett has taken the amateur UKMMA circuit by storm, winning virtually every amateur title there is with an impressive amateur record of over 10 fights. Training out of HAMMA under Sean Martin, Hignett will be stepping into the cage for his Professional debut at just 17 years old, but don’t you dare be fooled! Before you make judgement of his age, be sure to search him on Youtube.
Both lads are destined for greatness within this sport, some may say that it’s silly to match them up at this stage in their career, but in my opinion, it proves what kind of fighters they are, fighting the best, not avoiding anyone.
UCFC:5 is set to take place on the 2nd of March 2013, watch out for tickets going on sale early January, because you’d be a fool to miss this one!
