Paul McVeigh V Paul Marin – OnTop7 Co-Main Event

OnTop have announced yet another cracking fight for their OnTop7 card on 23rd February at the Bellahouston Centre in Glasgow, Scotland as Paul ‘Metabolic’ McVeigh takes on Paul Marin in a 58kg catchweight fight which will be the co-main event of the evening.

McVeigh, who is 30 years old and fights out of Dinky Ninjas, is known for his submission game with 12 of his 18 wins coming via that method. He will be trying to reverse his current form of late as he looks to put an abrupt end to his 2 fight losing streak. In his last two he has taken on Eric Perez and Brandon Hempleman on BAMMA and Cage Warriors respectively and has lost both via close unanimous decisions. He is slowly dropping to flyweight and at this weight I suspect he will be very, very strong. A UKMMA veteran is McVeigh with an 18-8 record, and he will be looking to take win number 19 come February 23rd.
Paul Marin is a 27 year old Romanian fighter fighting out of Union Palau MMA, he has a 5-1 record whereby 4 wins have come via T/KO. He too looks to get down to flyweight after starting his career as a bantamweight. We don’t know much about Marin however what we do know is that this guy has nothing to lose. At 5-1 he has the chance to take the scalp of an 18-8 legit, European ranked guy and these opportunities are few and far between so he shall grab it with both hands.
OnTop are pulling out all the stops for this card. After having to merge 2 half filled cards together the card is looking awesome and full of the Dinky Ninjas which will be great for home supporters.
OnTop7 takes place on the 23rd of February at the Bellahouston centre in Glasgow, Scotland.
