...OH, ONE MORE THING - PLEASE BOOKMARK US & VISIT DAILY!

BAMMA 14 was one of the most exciting fight cards of 2013, not just in the UK, but anywhere in the World of MMA. If you haven't seen that particular event yet, get over to the BAMMA website or look it up on YouTube and watch as many of the fights as you can, you won't be disappointed. After a longer than anticipated sabbatical, BAMMA have put together another fight card that's shaping up to be just as intriguing as the Birmingham show last December.
It might be lacking the star power of Paul Daley and Jimmy Wallhead, but two British title fights and a couple of former UFC stars, including 'The Freakshow,' will surely get bums on seats at the famed Copper Box Arena in London. Fletcher and Thompson both struggled during their UFC tenure's, but both are exciting to watch, and both face opponents they'll be extremely confident of beating convincingly.
Both Tom Strong (@StrongTea) and I will be covering the card for MMATorch next month. In addition to an extensive BAMMA based roundtable preview, we'll hopefully have some fighter interviews lined up before the event takes place on Sat 3rd Apr 14.
