Picture via Cage Conflict

On March 5th Cage Conflict returns for their first show in 2022 following a stellar year in 2021. The event is set to take place in The Devenish, Belfast and boasts 7 pro fights along with a stacked undercard. Titles on the line at both amateur and pro with the flyweight bout between Ger Harris and Ciaran Mulholland topping the card.

In the Main Event, Mulholland enters the bout after going undefeated in 2021, winning three fights in six months. In his most recent bout he picked up the Cage Conflict belt that he will look to defend on Saturday. Harris on the other hand is going big for his pro debut jumping straight into a Main Event title fight. His extensive amateur career included success at IMMAF tournament including a Junior Gold Medal at the 2018 Junior World Championships. Both men have hyped this fight up quite a lot as two of the most highly touted Flyweights in Ireland go toe to toe. This is one you do not want to miss.

FAI fighters fill out quite a bulk of the card with Matthew Elliott, Sean McCormac, Gerard Burns and David Piotrowicz all competing in pro bouts. The latter two will be making their pro debut. Elliott and McCormac each have a pro fight. McCormac picked up a debut win via decision over Vadim Kolesnikov back at Cage Conflict 4. Elliott earned his first win over Scott Pederson back at Cage Warriors 120, he was then left disappointed for the rest of the year after two bouts fell through. He will return against BJJ black belt Michel Da Silva in the Co-Main Event.

Another man making his pro debut will be SBG Charlestown’s Scott Harvey. He is returning to the cage for the first time since 2019 and will face Ciaran Breslin. Breslin made the successful switch to pro in December with a TKO/KO win over Mark Andrew.

Team KF’s Taka Mhandu will have his first pro bout in Ireland following two fights in South African based promotion EFC. The Bantamweight prospect will be hoping to put his most recent loss behind him by defeating Italy’s Ozbazaje Meraj. Mhandu’s teammates will feature on the prelim card with Julian Rennau and Ben Hughes competing for an amateur titles in two highly anticipated amateur matchups.
