BAMMA has announced today via Jim Edwards of MMA Latest News that they have decided to postpone BAMMA 26 in Dublin.
After consultation within the Irish sporting, medical and political community, a consensus has been reached that it is vital to introduce these scans for the BAMMA 26 event. With this in mind, and to allow the facilitation of these scans for ALL fighters, a decision has been made to move the BAMMA 26 event from June 4th to September 10th. This will leave 3 months of preparation for fighters to organise scans and for them to be reviewed by relevant medical experts.
The decision to postpone the event comes following the death of Joao Carvalho in an MMA event in Dublin which has called for the sport in the country of Ireland to be regulated by the government.

Paul Craig vs. Chris Fields
Rany Saadeh vs. Andy Young
