BAMMA has confirmed that the final two match ups to be added to the BAMMA 25: Champion Vs. Champion prelims are a Lightweight clash featuring Tim ‘The Experiment’ Wilde Vs. Christian ‘The Animal’ Holley & the a Heavyweight clash Tom Aspinall Vs. Lukas ‘The Punisher’ Parobeic.
Tim ‘The Experiment’ Wilde Vs. Christian ‘The Animal’ Holley (Lightweight Bout)
UTC Cannock product Tim ‘The Experiment’ Wilde (8-1) will be making his fourth appearance at a BAMMA event when he faces Holley at BAMMA 25: Champion Vs. Champion. Joining his team mate Tobias ‘The Development’ Reid on the BAMMA 25 fight card, the experienced striker will be looking to make another leap towards the top of the BAMMA Lightweight rankings and the step up against Holley will be a tough challenge for Wilde. Wilde last fight at BAMMA 22: Duquesnoy Vs. Loughnane, where he bested Stephen Coll in a striking clinic to win the Unanimous Decision. He has stated that it won’t be going to the judges this time as he aims to put Holley away early.
Christian ‘The Animal’ Holley (10-2) makes his home in Spain but is English by birth. With a background in Karate from an early age, Holley has secured his ten wins with a mixture of KOs and submissions and is now aiming to add Wilde to that list. Holley immediately jumps into the daunting BAMMA Lightweight division with no end of dangerous opponents. Wilde will be a scalp that he will want to take if he is to continue towards BAMMA Lightweight gold in the future.
Tom Aspinall Vs. Lukasz ‘The Punisher’ Parobiec (Heavyweight Bout)
UK Heavyweight prospect Tom Aspinall (4-1) returns to BAMMA for the fourth time as he takes on the dangerous Parobiec at BAMMA 25. The Kaobon Wigan standout looks to follow up on his win against Adrian Ruskac in March of this year, after suffering his first loss to now Lonsdale Champion Stuart ‘He-Man’ Austin at BAMMA 21: Kone Vs. DeVent. With an expert BJJ Base and power in both hands, Parodic is unlikely to have the fight all his own way this time when the door closes and he faces down on Aspinall on May 14th.
Polish born Lukasz ‘The Punisher’ Parobiec (13-5) will be looking to continue his winning ways at BAMMA after dispatching Jonathan Dargan in his BAMMA debut at BAMMA 22. The Polish born Berserkers team member currently resides in Newcastle, England and has fought the majority of his career in the UK. Parodic has often stated he isn’t interested in fighter records, just in fighting the best Heavyweights out there. He now gets his opportunity against one of the UK’s brightest prospects in the division at the Barclaycard Arena in May.Check out our latest podcast episode featuring Desmond Green & Matteo Urella.
