Europe’s leading mixed martial arts promotion, BAMMA, hosts the much-anticipated clash between BAMMA’s World Lightweight Champion Rob Sinclair and challenger, Andre Winner.
Hailing from Burnley in Lancashire, Sinclair’s performance to date is reflected in a 11-2-0 record. Beating Nathan Beer for the world title at BAMMA 2, Sinclair went on to defend the belt against Daniel Weichel at BAMMA 3 and Diego Vital at BAMMA 7. The BAMMA 10 square off will see Sinclair look to again defend his title against an internationally renowned talent.
Leicester fighter Andre Winner returns to BAMMA for a third time, following victories against Jason Ball at BAMMA 7 and Diego Gonzalez at BAMMA 8. Gaining recognition for his part in the TV series, ‘The Ultimate Fighter: United States vs. United Kingdom’, Winner’s outstanding skills saw him fight five times at the UFC before being snapped up by BAMMA.
Also on the BAMMA 10 card is the BAMMA Lonsdale British Middleweight title bout. The contest sees Sunderland’s ferocious Andrew Punshon challenge serving paratrooper Jack Marshman for the belt, in what is expected to be a hard-hitting and dynamic contest.
Army boxer Marshman showed his mettle at BAMMA 7 when he turned the fight around in the last hour to earn the British title and went on to successfully defend the belt against Leeroy Barnes at BAMMA 8.Marshman’s sole loss in his 10-1-0 record came at the hands of Tom ‘Kong’ Watson at BAMMA 9 where Marshman challenged Kong for the World Middleweight title. A tough and resilient fighter with an exemplary striking game, Marshman is a firm fan favourite. With the support of the British Forces behind him, the atmosphere when Marshman takes to the cage is never short of compelling.
