When looking at a promotion from the outside, the one thing you always want to see is progression. I don’t mean the stratospheric type all too evident in the brief history of UKMMA; I mean the general, sensible type, which demonstrates improvement show-on-show.

On October 18th news filtered out of BAMMA towers, announcing details of their latest raft of signings. The European promotional juggernaut had signed Brian Moore, Jai Herbert, Dominic Wooding and Terry Brazier to multi-fight deals. This was then followed up 24-hours later with the seismic revelation that BAMMA 27 wouldn’t be the sole event at the 3Arena, Dublin on December 16th; they’re working in conjunction with global MMA powerhouse Bellator, who are running show number 169, headlined by King Mo Lawal vs Satoshi Ishii, on the same night.
