Visa Issues Forces Efrain Escudero Out Of BAMMA 7

Efrain Escudero has been forced to withdraw from this weekend’s BAMMA 7 event in the UK after running into problems with his Visa.

The former Ultimate Fighter season 8 winner had been scheduled to fight Tim Radcliffe on the main card of the show, but that bout has now been scratched from the card.

This is the second big-name withdrawal from the event after current BAMMA middleweight champion Tom ‘Kong’ Watson also pulled out of his title fight with Frank Trigg due to injury.

Luckily the promotion have built a strong all-round card here so fighters like Trigg, Paul Daley and Andre Winner remain on-board to ensure the fans get their money’s worth.

BAMMA 7 airs live on the SyFy Channel in the UK at 9pm.
