Ash Griffiths (1-0-0) clashes with Tim Grieves (0-1-0) in a featherweight bout at Made4TheCage 10: Unstoppable in a fight between the new crop of MMA talent in UK.

Griffiths made his pro debut at Made4TheCage 9: Night of Champions where he bulldozed through the experienced Nathan Thompson, defeating him by referee stoppage.

He said: “fighting Nathan went pretty much as I expected so I am happy with that. I am prepared for whatever happens in this fight I have prepared for a war so if it happens I will be ready.

“ I know he will have trained hard he is at a good club with Colin ‘freakshow’ Fletcher and the crew but I think I will be too strong for him.”

With one win already notched on the record Griffiths is looking to build on his momentum and take as many scalps as possible and build a solid foundation for whatever comes his way. Made4TheCage will give him a great platform to do that as he will be facing tough gritty fighters that will test his skills.

The featherweight continued: “I am always looking to improve with every fight, I have worked on a couple of things since my last time in the cage and I am happy with how my camp is going.

“I just hope his training has gone well and he turns up ready to fight because I am ready!”

There has been some words exchanged from Grieves’ camp about Griffiths ducking fights in his amateur days but he insists this is incorrect and is adamant he will prove a point in this fight.

He said: “There was a lot of talk before this fight about me ducking Tim previously for title defenses of some amateur titles I had. I’ve never ducked anyone and I intend on proving that with this fight!”

Both fighters like to push forward and it is anticipated to be a good aggressive battle between two hungry fighters.

The event takes place at the Rainton Meadows Arena on 25th May
