Shamrock FC

Chris Petty asked to face Dakota Bush at Shamrock FC 273 because “he is one of the best guys around”

The co-main event of Saturday’s Shamrock FC 273 in St. Louis will be a welterweight bout as Chris Petty will look to improve to 2-0 in his professional career when he meets Dakota Bush on the fight card coming from the Lumiere Casino.

Petty won his professional debut back in February at Cage of Honor 67 against Wayne Collier by submission in just under two minutes and all of his amateur victories came by stoppage in the opening round. Just like Petty, Bush won his pro debut earlier this year and this is actually a fight that Petty asked for.

“Because he is one of the best guys around,” Petty told The MMA Report on why he wanted to fight Bush. “I wanted to fight one of the best. We were both one of the best amateurs in the midwest so I wanted to test myself I guess.”
