Jack Marshman was born on December 19, 1989 in Abertillery, Wales, and is a Welsh mixed martial artist, who fights at middleweight. He is BAMMA’s first British Middleweight Champion, and is also a member of the British Army.
Jack Marshman is an active serviceman for 3 Battalion, Parachute Regiment in the British Armed Forces. He is currently a Private and is expected to become a Lance Corporal soon. He is also a former Army Boxing Champion. Despite being expected to be sent anywhere in the world, such as Afghanistan, his regiment allows him to compete in mixed martial arts whenever he is not in service.
Marshman began his professional MMA career in January 31, 2010, with a win over Karim Mammar. He went on to fight another four times in the following 5 months, winning each by technical knockout. He returned to fighting after a 11 month absence, knocking out previous opponent Kevin Reed with a punch. He went on to win another two times, beating Lee Chadwick by technical knockout and Mike Ling by submission.
On September 10, 2011 Marshman made his BAMMA debut at BAMMA 7, beating Carl Noon. The win crowned him the first British Middleweight Champion of BAMMA, as well as making him the first British title holder of BAMMA, the first Welshman to win a title in BAMMA and became the youngest title holder in BAMMA.
Marshman will next defend his British Middleweight title against Andrew Punshon at BAMMA 10.
