Wallhead vs. Mills Confirmed For Knuckle Up at the Manor On November 1st

The UK MMA scene has been rocked ever since news leaked out late last week on that Knuckle Up Promoter Matthew Hand was close to signing top UK Welterweights Jim Wallhead and Che Mills for his November 1st event.

Now after a week’s worth of negotiations Knuckle Up are proud to confirm that “Judo” Jim Wallhead (17-5-0) and Che Mills (9-2-1) will both cross the River Severn on November 1st and face off in the Main Event of Knuckle Up 3: Knuckle-Up At The Manor , which takes place at the five star Celtic Manor Hotel and Resort in Newport, Wales.

This top class domestic match-up features the top two unsigned Welterweights in the UK MMA scene and is already being touted as the biggest (non UFC) bout in the UK for many years. Already many preeminent observers are speculating that the winner of the bout could ultimately earn a place at one of the world’s leading MMA events.

With this fantastic main event now secured, Knuckle Up hope this event and venue will raise the expectations and level of UK MMA. We also plan a full and exciting undercard which will feature some of the UK’s best up-and-coming talent. We hope this move will give the potential talent nestling within the UK scene a real chance to shine in the spotlight on an event, which not only promises top class MMA action, but also revolutionary production values for a UK based event.
