BAMMA 9 Undercard Set for March 24 in Birmingham
February 01, 2012 (23:10) [ Indexed from The Fight Network
(Feb. 1, 2012) BAMMA, Europe's leading Mixed Martial Arts promotion, is excited to announce three hard-hitting preliminary fights for BAMMA 9, which takes place on Saturday 24th March at Birmingham's National Indoor Arena: Andrew Punshon vs. Matt Howard; Jason Ball vs. Colin Fletcher; and Nick Nembhard vs. Leeroy Barnes.
Hailing from Spennymoor, the Durham destroyer Andrew Punshon has only ever seen one of his fourteen fights leave the first round. With a record of 10-4-0, Punshon has won most of his fights by rapid submission making him a dangerous prospect for any opponent. But, if there's any man fit for the challenge, you won't be wrong to place your bets on undefeated Rough House warrior, Matt Howard (9-0-0). The fierce Ground 'n' Pounder can also boast to have only once needed more than one round to finish an opponent. With 21 fights and 19 first round finishes between them, fans can expect fireworks from this pacey, compelling match. Not only does the bout pit skilled Jiu jitsu against explosive striking power but puts together two dangerous fighters known for demolishing opponents at break-neck speed. Don't blink during this fight.
Colin 'Freakshow' Fletcher is called so for a reason. It's not just the circus clown get up nor the entertaining walk-outs that make him stick in fans minds, but also those freaky, unorthodox Jiu jitsu moves that serve to undo his opponents. Freakshow is renowned for high-voltage performances that will make your hair stand on end. One man brave enough to face Freakshow in the cage is none less than talented boxer, Jason 'Daddy Cool' Ball. With 28 fights to his name, Ball is also not the conventional MMA fighter, having trained in array of Martial Arts that include Capoeira, Escrima, Jeet Kune Do and Dog Brothers. This high velocity match promises to break boundaries. More...
