Lionel Alexis vs. Ranjeet Baria – Battle Arena 38 Rated Top 5 Fight to Watch this Weekend on MMAMannia
With the United Kingdom becoming an ever-growing hotbed for MMA, you have to believe UFC brass are keeping a keen eye on local talent.
Battle Arena often features the best talent the UK has to offer, and this weekend is no different. With over 20 fights on the card, it isn’t easy to pick out the cream of the crop, but in my estimation, Lionel Alexis vs. Ranjeet Baria deserves your attention.
Both men are undefeated as Welterweight amateurs, with Baria doubling Alexis’ experience with four victories.
Baria will be the hometown favorite in Leicester tomorrow, making his return from a four-year layoff to prove he still has what it takes to compete. Prior to his hiatus, Baria had finished three of his four opponents via submission.
Alexis is a Battle Arena veteran, having won both of his fights in 2015. While Alexis is still very green, his decision victory in his last bout really exemplified his full skill-set in MMA.
Both of these men are coming to make a statement tomorrow, so expect a finish in what should be a wild and exciting fight.
