VIDEO: Kilkenny’s Myles Price puts in the final hard rounds before taking to the BAMMA cage

Sharpening the wand

In MMA, magic doesn’t come naturally.

Fighters work strenuously to become wizards of their craft and nobody’s working harder than Ireland’s own ‘Magic’ Myles Price as he aims to get right back in the win column at the 3Arena this weekend.

The Kilkenny lightweight meets England’s Mario Saeed in Dublin on Saturday, looking for his first victory under the BAMMA banner.

Price trains out of Team Ryano, the Finglas gym which boasts such high-profile fighters as Neil Seery and Paul Redmond, and is looking for his first victory since 2013 after losing his last two outings.

And judging by the grinding work ethic and laid-back attitude exhibited in this exclusive BAMMA 24 VLOG, Price clearly isn’t anticipating a scenario in which he has to watch his opponent’s hand raised this weekend.

Price is confident that he will finish Saeed, who he refers to as a “shit-talking bollocks,” once the cage door slams shut on the banks of the Liffey.

“It’s unbelievable, apparently,” Price said. “I hear it from external sources. I don’t be looking at that bullshit because he’s delusional obviously.

“It’s not going to look very good when he’s fucking knocked out!”

BAMMA 24: Kone Vs. Phillips will be held at the 3Arena, Dublin Ireland on 27th February 2016.  Tickets are on sale now at
