Unbeaten, unflinching, and completely relentless in there, ‘Big Daddy’ himself, Kiefer Crosbie is the first fighter to be featured in our ongoing preview of Bellator Dublin.
The idea here is to shine a spotlight on some of the Irish athletes competing in the 3Arena on February 23 – giving you a quick glimpse into a particular highlight from their career.
Pundit Arena MMA will act as your go-to for exclusive interviews, features, and every last piece of info you’ll need to get you set for the biggest night of the year for Irish mixed martial arts.
Five fight, five wins, and a successful Bellator debut in his back-pocket.
On a night filled to the brim with Irish talent, Crosbie certainly stands out as one of the more-recognizable names to the casual eye.
A genuinely unmissable talent with a champion’s mentality towards improvement and revision, Kiefer takes a spot upon the Bellator 217 prelims, facing Daniel Olejniczak – a man who has shared the octagon with his country-men Richard Kiely and Cian Cowley in the past.
In an interview with Irish legend Paddy Holohan on his No Shame podcast, Crosbie explained that he simply woke up the morning of his BAMMA 35 encounter with Josh Plant in the mood for a good scrap and of course, that was exactly what we got.
Not to say that ‘Big Daddy’ wasn’t dominant, though, because he absolutely looked the part.
Josh Plant was on the receiving end of an exhilarating beating on that night, a fight that stood as the fourth consecutive win in Kiefer’s career – one that further proved that this guy is equal parts clinical and compelling.
