It looks like Bamma 9 is starting to take shape

It looks like Bamma 9 is starting to take shape

BAMMA 9 was supposed to go down on February 11 and feature the promotional début of Nate Marquardt however that date was rescheduled and Nate subsequently negotiated his way out of his BAMMA contract. This chain of events is like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife, or a traffic jam when you’re already late: unfortunate. While we wait on the full BAMMA 9 main card line up for the newly arranged date of March 24 we can have a look instead at the preliminary card which has quietly taken shape.
While short of internationally recognizable names, the BAMMA 9 preliminaries does feature some fighters you should keep an eye on. For example, middleweight Andrew Punshon comes from a Muay Thai background but has won 8 of his 10 fights via submission and will take on 9-0 Team Rough House standout Matt Howard, who has finished eight of these nine fights with his fists in the opening frame.

Jason Ball (18-10) lost a decision to Andre Winner on BAMMA 7 and our friends over at Woah! TV have put on Youtube for you to watch. He will fight on BAMMA 9 against 7-1 Colin ‘Freakshow’ Fletcher. Freakshow got his moniker from his propensity to dress and act like Captain Spaulding from House of 1000 Corpses. Kidding, he got it from his freaky submission skills which have secured every one of his seven career wins. We recommend you watch this video of Neil Grove wearing the biggest MiddleEasy tee we have available talking to Colin Fletcher after his last fight, a first round win at BAMMA 8.
In addition to this, Wolfslair fighter and BAMMA fan favourite Leeroy Barnes comes off his decision loss to Jack Marshman at BAMMA 8 to fight Nick Nembhard (2-1). The as-yet unannounced main card is expected to consist of four fights and the card so far looks like this:
