Newcastle teenager Brandon Moore is aiming for a place in the Irish National MMA youth team after picking up a silver medal at the 2022 Youth National MMA Championships in Belfast on 8th May to add to the Gold he won in 2021. 

Brandon, who is sixteen years old, fights out of SBG Clonmel and trains under Colin Meagher who was the first Irish Amateur Welterweight Champion of the IMMA (Irish Mixed Martial Arts association ). 

Brandon said “It was a tough fight in Belfast and obviously I was gutted not to take the Gold but I will definitely take away some lessons from that fight to help me improve.” Brandon is hoping that his silver-medal performance in the Heavyweight division in Belfast and a good performance at the upcoming Irish National team selection session in Dublin later this month will secure him a place on the Irish youth team to fight in the 2022 World Championships later this year.
