The popularity of MMA in the Emerald Isle has skyrocketed.   In today’s episoDamien_Rooneyde of Across The Pond, you will meet an Irish fighter who is looking to bring down the house when BAMMA returns to Dublin on February 27. A professional since March 2008 and fighting out of Elite Fighting Revolution, 31 year old Damien Rooney owns a 10-4-1 record consisting of six submissions, two knockouts, one decision and one draw. Damien is best known for a two fight stint with Cage Warriors in 2014.  He won his first two bouts, defeating Donatas Karlonas and Husen Muhamed respectively before picking up a submission win over Richie Ivory.  He won his next four fights then picked up back to back first round wins over Mark Connor and Alan Philpott before signing with Cage Warriors in 2014. At Cage Warriors 65 in Dublin, he submitted Bryan Creighton via triangle choke in the second round.
