Scotty T and Stevie Bear are the latest duo to take part in a celebrity fight night and are preparing to face off at the UK’s first celebrity mixed martial arts event.
The reality stars are going to get their battle on in a full contact match as part of FAME MMA UK’s first event at Newcastle’s Utilita Arena on 14 December.
A format already popular in European countries such as Poland, Stevie and Scotty will be engaging in some intense combat after undergoing rigorous training, with fans purchasing tickets to watch the famously dangerous sport.
Other names on the yet to be announced bill competing at the end of the year will include TV stars, YouTubers, musicians and influencers. Sounds impressive!
The boys exchanged words as they announced the news online, with Geordie Shore star Scott writing: ‘So the news is finally out, me and @stevie_bear are going to be having a good old fashioned tear up on 14TH December at the Utilita arena in my hometown of Newcastle!!!
‘Which sexy f***er do you think is going to win!??’

Now there’s a question, eh Scott?
Celebrity Big Brother star Stevie wrote back: ‘So me and @scottgshore are having a dust up in the ring… not boxing … MMA.’
Could that be a dig at two certain YouTubers and their boxing match? Who would win in the battle of MMA vs. boxing?
Mock as Stevie may, the success of FAME MMA UK is hoping to build off the success of Youtubers Logan Paul and KSI’s infamous boxing match, which more than 1.6 million people watched live last summer.
With a rematch taking place on 9 November, the pair have been mouthing off at press conferences across the world (with words that make Scotty and Stevie seem like polite little puppies), with KSI predicting last week that he’d knock his opponent out by the fifth round.
Youtubers, confident? Never.
