BAMMA has now officially announced the fight card for their eighth show coming up in England with light heavyweights Jimi Manuwa and Antony Rea leading the way.
Manuwa is a recent signee to BAMMA with a perfect 10-0 record, and was actually being courted by the UFC before deciding to continue his development before stepping into that show.
Antony Rea will match up with Manuwa in his BAMMA debut and comes into the fight on a five fight win streak including a TKO over former UFC fighter Sean Salmon.
Also on the card will be former Bellator fighter Jim Wallhead, who drops back down to welterweight after a brief move to 185 pounds where he defeated Frank Trigg, and now faces former Strikeforce contender Joey Villasenor.
‘Ultimate Fighter’ runner-up Andre Winner makes another appearance in BAMMA where he will face Niko Puhakka, while British middleweight champion Jack Marshman faces Leeroy Barnes.
