Made4TheCage25: Legacy is already shaping up to be a huge card as top ranked UK Welterweight Chris ‘Ironfist’ Thirkell will face Denmark’s Thomas ‘The Immortal’ Jessing in a huge clash on September 2nd.
Thirkell, who boasts an undefeated 7-0, will be returning to Made4TheCage after a two-year absence, with his last fight on the promotion coming in a dominant win over David Round at M4TC 17.
Jessing will be making his debut appearance for the promotion but is familiar with the UK scene with five of his 6 fights being fought on British soil. ‘The Immortal’ boasts an impressive 4-2 record in his young career but will face no doubt his toughest test to date in Thirkell.
The fight announcement comes not long after Thirkell recently took over head coaching duties at Spartan’s Gym in Sunderland, which is well known for producing some of the best fighters in the UK today, after long time coach and North-East MMA legend Warren ‘Waz’ Oliver retired from his coaching duties last week.
Thirkell has spoke at length about his desire to break into the top 10 ranks in the UK Welterweight division this year and this fight will certainly boost his chances of doing just that should he get past his tough Danish opponent. Check out one of his fights on M4TC below:
