| February 21, 2012 | Reply

With the next event merely a matter of weeks away, organizers have confirmed that BAMMA 9, due to take place at the NIA Arena in Birmingham on March 24th, will see BAMMA-Lonsdale’s British Middleweight Champion, Jack Marshman, challenge Tom ‘Kong’ Watson for the BAMMA World Middleweight belt.

Speaking about the fight between two of the most well-known fighters in British MMA, BAMMA’s managing director, Ashley Bothwell, says “Marshman puts his unblemished record on the line in this step up in class against the well battle-tested Watson.”

However, as Bothwell explains, BAMMA fans are in for a treat and promises it won’t just be the main bout that will produce fireworks. “BAMMA 9 is set to be an exciting event with an array of well-matched and hard-hitting bouts that showcase the cream of tough, European talent. The prelims combine colourful characters, skilled athleticism with exceptional exercise programs and fighters that come to war. With more main card fights still to come, BAMMA 9 promises to be a night of non-stop, high calibre action that will have fight fans on the edge of their seats.”

One of those fights set to ignite the NIA is the Light-Heavyweight clash between Przemyslaw ‘Misiek’ Mysiala and Jason Jones. With 16 wins out of his 25 bouts, BAMMA debuting Jones clearly has one eye on the Light-Heavyweight title while his opponent, also boasting 16 wins, makes his return from injury and is also aiming to win back top position.

With both fighters wanting the chance to take on the Poster Boy, Jimi Manuwa, all the signals indicate fight fans will get a cracking fight. BAMMA matchmaker Jude Samuel explains “Jason Jones is making his debut on BAMMA, but is a very experienced fighter who has fought the likes of Ninja Rua at Middleweight in the past. He now has his eye on the BAMMA Light Heavyweight throne and is eyeing Jimi Manuwa very closely. Jones wants a crack at the undefeated Manuwa by the end of the year.  ’Misiek’ Mysiala has had a run of bad luck, but is looking to get back into the rankings fast. Jimi has 2 hungry individuals chasing him at the moment and he is not even champion yet.”
