UK promotion BAMMA held their ninth event last night and we’ve got all the results for you below.
The main event saw BAMMA middleweight champion Tom ‘Kong’ Watson retain his title after TKO’ing Jack Marshman deep in the second round.
Marshman had been rocked by a spinning elbow earlier in the round and a sustained spell of ground and pound would soon follow which forced the referee to end the fight.
This was the last fight of Watson’s current BAMMA contract and he had claimed pre-fight that a win could put him in line for a move to the Strikeforce organization.
Good news for Strikeforce, bad news for BAMMA who are already reeling from having had Nate Marquardt make the same move without even having had a chance to fight for them.
It’s also worth mentioning that BAMMA 9 wasn’t aired live in the UK, with it’s TV deal with the SyFy channel apparently having come to an end, though the smaller ‘Extreme Channel’ will feature a replay of the show in a weeks time.
