Ryan ‘Big Baby’ Scope Vs. Mickael ‘Ragnar’ Lebout - Lightweight Bout
For the first time since his win over Ali Arish at BAMMA 15, Ryan ‘Big Baby’ Scope returns to BAMMA in his hometown, as he takes on Frenchman Mickael ‘Ragnar’ Lebout in a Lightweight bout that will have the crowds jumping in support of their hometown favourite. With a victory crucial for both men on 15th December, this bout could propel the winner straight into the title picture for the vacant BAMMA Lightweight Title in the months to come.
Ryan ‘Big Baby’ Scope (10-1) returns to BAMMA after a 3 year absence to face Mickael ‘Ragnar’ Lebout. In his BAMMA debut, which was also held at the Metro Radio Arena, he also faced an undefeated Luke ‘Nuke’ Newman in a hard fought battle, where he toughed out the submission victory and also sent Newman into retirement. Now returning to BAMMA, he looks to once again clear a path to the Lightweight title.
Mickael ‘Ragnar’ Lebout (16-7-2) is currently riding a two fight win streak as he enters the lions den and takes on Ryan Scope in his hometown. Lebout has faced a veritable who’s who of European MMA, including former BAMMA fighters Tim Wilde and one time Lonsdale Lightweight Champion Stevie ‘Braveheart’ Ray.
