Full Contact Contender 6: Menga vs Sitenkov

BoltonGreater Manchester – England – May 16th 2013 – The North West’s hottest amateur Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) event, Full Contact Contender (FCC), is proud to confirm FCC 6Menga vs Sitenkov, taking place in the Premier Suite at Bolton’s Reebok Stadium on June 22nd, 2013.The card will be headlined by FCC’s biggest main event to date, as experienced European flyweight Artemij Sitenkov challenges FCC Flyweight Champion Pietro Menga.
Menga became the first ever professional FCC champion at FCC 5 in March, submitting Mark Platts in the first round to move his unblemished professional ledger to 9-0. Menga, who recently secured his first boxing win, has finished seven of his nine opponents in the first round, with seven submissions and two (T)KO’s to his name. Keen to defend his title, Mengaasked to return to FCC to face his toughest test to date; Artemij Sitenkov.
Lithuanian grappling prodigy Sitenkov (14-9) has faced Europe’s finest lighter-weight fighters. All fourteen of his victories come by way of submission, with a mystifying arsenal of arm and kneebars in his toolkit.Sitenkov has submitted Cage Warriors #1 flyweight contender Neil Seery in 55 seconds, and UFC superstar Conor McGregor in just 30. He also holds wins over Steve McCombe and James Doolan.

Promoter Adam Teh said: “I’m really happy to have Pietro Menga back on FCC. With a talent like that, you know that the big shows are going to come calling sooner or later, so it’s great that Pietro wanted to return to defend his title like a true champion should. Artemij Sitenkov has collected more arms and legs than I’ve collected football stickers over the years. This is a huge test for Menga, and for Sitenkov, it’s a chance to re-establish himself as one of Europe’s top Flyweights.”

FCC 5 will feature a second pro fight as its co-main event, as SBG’s JordanDesborough (5-2) takes on Stoke Fight Factory’s Conrad Haines (6-2) in a bantamweight contest. Also on the card, James Walker (3-2) faces the returning Shaun Hampton for Brett McDermott’s recently vacated Amateur Light Heavyweight title, Callum Brady (6-1) defends his Amateur Welterweight title against Dez Parker (10-1), Coner Hignett (9-2) defends his Amateur Flyweight title against Mike Berry (4-2) and the hard-hitting JoeNazokatov challenges submission specialist Josh Jarvis for the Amateur Featherweight title. Rounding out the amateur title fights is a unification bout as Amateur Lightweight champion Martin Chester returns to face interim champ Lee Richardson.    
Adam Teh said… On June 22nd, we’ll have more titles than the House of Lords! Brett McDermott had a great run as our ammy light heavyweight champ, and I’m confident that either Hampton or Walker can fill those shoes. It’ll be great to clear up the lightweight title picture too, with two solid submission stylists tangling for the title of undisputed champion. Joe Naz and Josh Jarvis is a great styles clash, while Brady vs Parker and Hignett vsBerry both promise fireworks. With 16 other Unified Amateur rules bouts confirmed, FCC continues to offer the best value ticket in town. FCC 6 is not to be missed!
