Both men asked for it and both men got it! Welterweights Richard Kiely and champion Alex Lohore will meet at BAMMA Dublin on November 10.
The news was announced this morning by SevereMMA.com and is expected to headline the BAMMA portion of the card set for the 3 Arena.
Lohore (13-1) won the title earlier this month when he defeated Nathan Jones in London at BAMMA 31 with a devestating flying knee. The Frenchman is currently riding a nine fight winning streak and called out Kiely when interviewed in the cage after his win over Jones.

Kiely (2-0) didn’t take long to reapond to Lohore’s request and he immediately accepted the challenge in an interview with MMAUno.com later that evening.
The Irishman will be taking only his third professional fight when he steps into the cage with Lohore, but Kiely isn’t the sort of man to be phased by his more experienced opponent and he’s promised to finish the job in style as he’s done in the last two fights.
“He’s going to get a complimentary chin construction from the face of BAMMA.”
With the talking now done and the fight signed, it’s all eyes on the 3Arena in Dublin on Nov. 10 to see if Kiely can end Lohore’s BAMMA welterweight title reign.
