To mixed martial art fans in the UK, Fame MMA maybe a new concept but it has proved to be very popular in Poland over the past year. The basis of Fame MMA is to pitch celebrities against each other in the cage as is usually seen in events such as UFC. Celebrities, youtubers, rappers and other influences have all taken part in Fame MMA.
The first Fame MMA gala took place on June 30th, 2018 at the Sports and Entertainment Hall in Koszalin, Poland. Since that night, there has been four additional Fame MMA galas in Poland, each of which had been very successful and attracted big crowds both in the arena and on live streams. Therefore, it did not come as a surprise when it was announced there will be a Fame MMA event in the United Kingdom.
Fame MMA UK Newcastle will take place at the Utilita Arena on the 14th of December 2019. Take a look at our Fame MMA UK preview below to find out the latest Fame MMA UK news and for the Fame MMA UK odds.
It is sure to be a great night, with plenty of hard fought action and drama.
To date the majority of the participants in Fame MMA fight card have been Polish but that will change during the Fame MMA UK as we see two English competitors go head to head in the cage. Scott Timlin will take on Stephen Bear. This will be the UK’s first celebrity mixed martial arts event and both celebrities have been participating in rigorous training regimes to get fit for this contest.
Scotty T vs Stevie Bear is the first announced fight at Fame MMA UK
We begin our Fame MMA UK predictions by taking a look at the two participants starting with Scott Timlin, who is more commonly known as Scotty T. For those who do not know, Scotty T is a regular on the television show Geordie Shore but has also featured on Ex on the Beach and the television show Neighbours. In 2016 he won Celebrity Big Brother and will be hoping to add another victory to his CV by winning at Fame MMA UK.
The Scottie T vs Stevie Bear betting odds have the former as the favourite priced at 4/9 with SkyBet.
Moving onto Stevie Bear, he has enjoyed several television appearances in the United Kingdom since 2011. Bear first appeared in Shipwreck and finished in 5th place on the show before appearing in two series of Ex on the Beach. Much like his opponent, Stevie Bear has tasted success on television by winning Celebrity Big Brother. He won the 18th series of the show and continues to appear on reality television programmes in the UK.
However, the Fame MMA UK betting odds do not favour the man from Walthamstow and the 29 year old is available at 13/8 with SkyBet to win the fight.
2. Fame MMA UK News
Both men have been working hard ahead of Fame MMA UK and there is plenty of history between them from previous television shows. Stevie Bear is the ex-boyfriend of two of Scotty's Geordie Shore mates, Vicky Pattison and Charlotte Crosby, so there is no love lost between these two men.
If you are thinking either of these men are going to be taking easy, think again. They have both been training hard for this event and will be determined to come out on top. If the Boxing match between Youtubers Logan Paul and KSI last year, which attracted over 1.6 million viewers is anything to go by, this is going to be a massive night in Newcastle.
Fame MMA did not take long to become a big hit in Poland and the same is sure to happen in the UK following Fame MMA UK in December. Do not miss out on this fantastic occasion and make sure you are watching, either in the arena or live on screens at home.

3. Fame MMA UK Fight Card
As highlighted above, the main event of the evening in Newcastle will be the fight between Scott Timlin and Stephen Bear. However, the Fame MMA UK event will also host several other fights between British television celebrities.
One of the new fights added to our Fame MMA UK preview is between Sam Gowland and Marty McKenna. They are both former Geordie Shore stars and have an interesting back story as they are both are ex-boyfriends of Chloe Ferry. There has also been a bit of bad blood between the two as Sam only split from Chloe a few months ago. Speaking on social media ahead of the fight, Marty said, “I’m coming for that win, can’t wait to smash up this opponent”, before adding, “It’s been a long time coming.”
There is clearly tension between the two men and this is only going to add to the drama of Fame MMA UK. Don't forget to check out the latest Fame MMA UK odds If you would like to back either Sam Gowland or Marty McKenna to win the fight.
Moving on and another fight which Fame MMA UK fans can look forward to watching in Newcastle on the 14th of December is between Dapper Laughs and MC Harvey. Dapper Laughs (real name, Daniel O'Reilly) caused a shock when he was evicted from the Big Brother house by proposing to Shelley Rae. MC Harvey was first introduced to the celebrity spotlight as part of So Solid Crew before pursuing a solo music career.
There does not appear to be any previous history between the two but there has been plenty of controversy leading up to the fight. Dapper Laughs has caused outrage by pasting a photo of Katie Price’s disabled son Harvey over the face of MC Harvey on the promotional poster. This could lead to plenty of abuse on the night for Dapper Laughs but who do you think will come out on top in this fight?
Many Fame MMA UK predictions have Dapper Laughs as favourite having previously participated in a charity amateur boxing match at Aldershot Princes Hall, where he narrowly defeated his opponent. However, MC Harvey has played football for AFC Wimbledon, Aldershot Town and Lewes, so knows a thing or two about sport.
It has also emerged that Love Island star Georgia Harrison will fight at Fame MMA UK. The MTV The Challenge star is very athletic and is sure to be ranked as one of the favourites in the Fame MMA UK odds ahead of her fight. Harrison will take on Ashley Marie and you can also watch Joel ‘JMX’ Morris in action as he takes on Lewis Harrison plus Casey Barker, who will meet Callum Markie, Mike Fox vs Andrew Henderson and Ally Law vs Harry "Nightscape" Gallagher.
It is going to be a huge night for Fame MMA in the United Kingdom so keep an eye on the latest Fame MMA UK odds ahead of the event.
