The British Association of Mixed Martial Arts (BAMMA) announced three preliminary bouts for their upcoming BAMMA 18 show February 21st.
The main event features a three round featherweight title defence between champion Tom Duquesnoy (9-1-0, 1NC) and challenger Krzysztof Klaczek (8-2-0).
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
Newly signed Chris “Night” Miah (5-0-0) takes on Mick Gerrard (3-1-0) in a flyweight battle.
“I’m glad to be able to showcase and test my skills against a good opponent on one of the biggest stages in Europe,”
Miah said. “I am planning on being at my best and putting in my best performance to date for the BAMMA fans.”
Tom Aspinall (1-0-0) and Ricky King (2-0-0) square off in the heavyweight division. “Tom Aspinall is potentially the most exciting and most talented UK MMA Heavyweight we have seen,” said BAMMA consultant Chris Zorba. “He has the tools to go all the way and BAMMA will provide him with a great platform to prove this.”
“Tom is a good opponent but I intend to make it a great fight between two unbeaten heavyweights,” King said. “I’d like to thank BAMMA for the opportunity of fighting on Europe’s no.1 show”
Finally, it will be Nathan Court (3-2-0) vs Louis “KO” King (1-0-0) in a battle of middleweights.
Court is returing to BAMMA after a two-year layoff. “I am looking forward to this fight! Louis is a great fighter & a lot of people were avoiding him but I was more than happy to accept,” Court said. “When a promotion like BAMMA comes calling, I was always going to sign the contract and I plan on turning up and putting on a show. Every fight I’ve had has been a fight of the night contender and I see this one being exactly the same, as we both have the skills to take each other out in a heartbeat!
“I’m excited to bring my K.O. power to BAMMA and entertain the crowds. Nathan better be at his best on Feb 21st,” King responded.
