Birmingham, England: Tobias Reid put on the performance of his short career so far as ‘The Developement’ outworked and out-struck late replacement Craig Clarkson, finishing him with a beautiful combination in the second round after a dominant first frame.
BAMMA 23: Night of Champions was held on 14 November 2015, at the Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham. Tobias Reid Vs. Craig Clarkson took place on the preliminary card that aired on MMAMad.com
Reid lands a nice jab, switches his stance and lands three huge knees to the face Clarkson who clinches but Reid forces the break and goes to work, landing hard shots at will. There looks to be a huge gulf in class thus far. Nice straight right from Reid and a follow up combination lands clean, forcing Clarkson to clinch against the cage however he gets reversed again. Front kick to the face by Reid, followed by another barrage of strikes against the cage. Clarkson is a bloody mess and looks to have no answer to the skilled striking technique of Reid.
MMA Mad score the round 10-8 Reid.
