Niallís ready for the fight of his life thumbnail

AN Antrim man is set to take part in a world class MMA event taking place at the SSE Arena in Belfast this weekend.
In less than five years, Niall 'The Quiet Man' Smith has gone from a novice fighter with the desire to keep fit, moving up through the amateur stages before turning professional about 18 months ago, fighting in the featherweight division.
The 30-year-old, who trains at Heat MMA, at one point became a kickboxing world champion.
Since he first stepped into the ring, he has taken part in more than 20 amateur fights.
The huge BAMMA/Bellator event on February 24 will be his ninth professional outing.
