Kentucky's #1 MMA promotion returns as Absolute Action MMA presents "Absolute Action MMA 24" emanating from the Shimmers Ballroom in Covington, Kentucky on March 23. MMA fans, this 15-bout card is stacked with the top amateur fighters inside Northern Kentucky and the greater Cincinnati area. AAMMA is the premier MMA organization in the Bluegrass State and one of the Southeast region's top cage-fighting promotion's. You always get competitive, quality MMA with Absolute Action MMA.
In the main event, Brittany Skelton (5-3) will fight for the AAMMA Lightweight Title. His opponent has not been named yet, as several fighters have fallen through at the last second, but nevertheless, AAMMA will find a suitable opponent for Skelton and the two will throwdown in the cage for the 155 lb championship. Skelton is a tough matchup for anybody as he is very quick with his punches and takedowns and poses a problem for most opponents because of his superior cardio conditioning. But Skelton will be at a disadvantage as he will have little time to gameplan for his eventual opponent so once he steps in the cage he will be going off of pure fighting instinct and just have to go with the flow. Sometimes matches that are put together at the last minute can be the most exciting on the card because the fighters don't get bogged down with a detailed strategy. They just fight. Expect this bout to just be about fighting as whoever wins walks away a champion.
In the co-main event, Brian Francisco (5-1) battles Deric "The Manimal" Reece (4-8) in what could be a #1 Contender's Match for the Lightweight belt. Francisco is a fast starter who packs a heavy punch as all 5 of his wins have come via KO in the first round. He will be taking on his toughest opponent to date in Reece, but don't expect that to curtail Francisco's furious pace. Reece has been on a tough skid as of late and for him to get back on the right track he will have to do what he knows best and that's unloading punches, as all 4 of his wins have come by submission, due to strikes. Not many people wanted to fight Francisco, but Reece stepped up to the plate and if he can pull the mild upset here, he will be right back in the title hunt for the AAMMA Lightweight strap.
You won't find more BANG for your buck so order this thrilling event. Be sure to catch all of the action LIVE on March 23 as Absolute Action presents Absolute Action MMA 24 on pay-per-view exclusively at GFL.tv.
