Fight details announced for Portarlington MMA star

Philip 'The HoneyBadger' Mulpeter will return to the Octagon this summer

Portarlington MMA fighter Philip ‘The Honeybadger’ Mulpeter will return to the octagon this summer – after details of his lightweight bout against ‘Magic’ Myles Price were released today.

Severe MMA announced today that Mulpeter – who runs the recently-opened Straight Blast Gym in Portarlington and fights from that gym too – is set to return to action against Team Ryano’s ‘Magic’ Myles Price at BAMMA 30 in a lightweight bout.

All action

“Mulpeter (7-5) is well known on the local scene for his all action style,” said a piece on the Severe MMA website. “He has been involved in some of the most exciting bouts in Irish MMA history including victories over Richard Gorey and John Donnelly in exciting back and forth bouts inside the Battle Zone FC cage.”

Before stepping away from the sport for more than two years, “The Honeybadger” had six of his seven scheduled bouts cancelled at the last minute due to injuries to himself and his scheduled opponents and weight-cutting issues for his would be opponents.

Price (9-6) defeated Brit Mario Saeed in his last outing at BAMMA 24 after losing out to Kane Mousah, who was undefeated at the time, in a controversial decision at BAMMA 26 in Dublin back in September 2015.

BAMMA 30 will take place on July 7 at the 3Arena in Dublin.
