BREAKING: Joe McColgan Set To Face Aldo Cirillo at Fight Clubbing 24

Severe MMA have learned that Joe McColgan (4-2) is scheduled to face Aldo Cirillo (3-4) in a welterweight contest at Fight Clubbing 24 on May 4th, 2019 in Pescara, Italy.

McColgan is set to join his teammate Paul Hughes on the card (another fight which was announced earlier today), as both fighters venture into enemy territory against hometown teammates, Aldo Cirillo and Davide Di Deo.

McColgan, who usually competes at 155lbs, looks to return to winning ways after suffering defeat at the hands of Jai Herbert on Cage Warriors 100, in what was an exhilarating fight.

Cirillo will also be hungry for the taste of victory once again, as despite achieving a 3-1 start to his MMA career, now looks to put an end to a three-fight losing streak.

With the announcement of both fights, Irish eyes will be on Italy in May, as teammates collide at the John Paul II stadium. Northern Ireland vs Italy. Fight Academy Ireland vs Team D’Aloi Family Fight.
