After plenty of bad blood and back and forth on social media, the bout originally scheduled for BAMMA 17 will now happen at BAMMA 25.
Lonsdale Champion Marc ‘Bonecrusher’ Diakiese (8-0) recently re-signed a brand new multi-fight deal with the promotion and finally gets to take on the man who has been calling him out for over a year. The ASW stand out blitzed his first challenger for his Lonsdale title in just 24 seconds at BAMMA 22 in Ireland. Rick Selvarajah was left out cold on the canvas as Diakiese landed a devastating combination for the KO, which garnered him over 100,000 views on social media and the runner up spot for KO of the year. The champion is planning big things in 2016, but has stated he will happily take another fighters ‘0’ first on the road to the BAMMA title.
Kane ‘Black Bane’ Mousah (7-0) made his debut at BAMMA 22 after an injury put him out of BAMMA 17 and prevented this matchup from happening earlier. Mousah defeated ‘Magic’ Myles Price in a closely contested war, and now gets his wish to face the man he has made his number one target, be it on social media or at BAMMA events. This will be the stiffest test of Mousah’s ability in his 7 year career so far, and one that he has total belief that he will overcome.Check out our latest podcast episode featuring Jimi Manuwa, Andreas Georgiou & Nate Zielinski.
