Parag Patel and crew are set to return later this month to The BB&T Arena for AAMMA 47. The card is coming together and features local talent on the professional side of things as well as several key amateur fights.
Evan Samad (3-1) will be looking to rebound following his first professional loss earlier this year as he meets Devoniere Jackson (3-4). Samad won three straight professional fights in Brazil before losing a close decision to George Comer. Jackson has won two of his last three but is coming off a loss as well.
Marc McDonald returns closer to home for a featherweight battle against Zakk Smith. McDonald (1-1) has had back to back tough fights in northern Ohio. He won his professional debut and dropped a decision in his sophomore outing. Smith (6-16) has notched over 20 fights on his professional resume and will make his second appearance in the AAMMA cage.
Sean Fallon and TJ Wash round out the scheduled pro card. Wash returns after an extended absence. He was scheduled for a fight in July for Hardrock MMA but the fight was scratched. Fallon is looking to bounce back after a tough decision loss to Andrew Law earlier this year.
Absolute Action MMA 47 takes place on August 27th at BB&T Arena. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com.
