Up and coming British promotion BAMMA have announced an intriguing main event for their sixth event on May 21st.
The headliner will see current middleweight champion Tom ‘Kong’ Watson take on ‘Shogun’s’ brother Murlio ‘Ninja’ Rua for the title.
Watson, who’s lost just once in his last ten fights, is a notable fighter in the UK, who made his name in the now defunct Cage Rage promotion in England, and more recently has been appearing regularly for both BAMMA and Canadian promotion MFC.
Meanwhile ‘Ninja’ has never managed to reach the heights of his brothers career, but the former EliteXC 185lb champ is still a solid fighter who holds a recent record of 4-1.
BAMMA are one of a number of promotion’s looking to establish themselves in the MMA market at this time. They recently announced a deal which sees there events air live on SyFy in the UK, while offering a pay-per-view service abroad.
