With the UFC 122 looming this weekend, all eyes are on the international spectacle. But very soon we have a major event right here in the UK, in the shape of BAMMA 5 on Saturday 5th December.
The fightcard looks great, featuring Bob “The Beast” Sapp who is fighting Stav “The Bear” Economou.
We are most excited about another Heavyweight fight, where my money for a win is with Oli Thompson, former Britain’s Strongest Man, now a formidable Heavyweight MMA fighter who is slowly climbing the UK MMA ranks with a 4-1-0 record. He will be fighting Darren Towler (3-4-0).
Having trained with Combat Ready Training for the last year, Oli Thompson is set to peak for fight night with ferocious power and the cardio abilities most middleweights would be envious of. Five minute rounds are nothing to Oli, he eats them up with ease and plenty left in the tank for more.
