The long awaited rematch between Norman “Stormin” Parke, 31, of Bushmills, Antrim, Northern Ireland and Myles “Magic” Price, 30, of Kilkenny, Leinster, Ireland finally took place on June 9, 2018. They co-headlined “Brave 13: Europe Evolution” at the SSE arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Parke and Price first fought in 2010 with the former coming out as the winner via submission. This time around, however, Price was able to defend better on the ground and had a good going on the stand-up department, especially in the first round, looking to exploit Parke’s weakness with body shots.
Still, after three three-minute rounds, the judges scored the bout between Parke and Price at “Brave 13: Europe Evolution” with unanimous decision in favor of the former. It was a catchweight bout at 73 kg.
“Brave 13: Europe Evolution” was the first event of Bahrain-based mixed martial arts promotion Brave Combat Federation in Europe. It was attended by several celebrity athletes including Conor “Notorious” McGregor, 29, and Amir Khan, 31.
