  • BAMMA 15 poster 212x300 Four new bouts added to BAMMA 15 lineupFour new bouts have been announced for BAMMA 15 as Colin Fletcher faces Tony Hervey, Ryan Scope takes on Ali Arish, Mahmood Besharate meets Rany Saadeh and Dyson Roberts squares off against Jefferson George.

    BAMMA officials recently announced the fights.

    BAMMA 15 takes place at London’s Copper Box Arena on April 5th and will feature a heavyweight matchup between Oli Thompson and Grizm Selmani. The event will air on 5* in the UK, AXS-TV in the US, KIX in Asia, Abu Dhabi TV in the Middle East,The Fight Network in Canada, Extreme Sports Channel in Europe, Setanta in Africa, Sony in Russia & Transylvania Media in Romania.

    Colin Fletcher will be looking to bounce back into the win column following a first round submission loss to Mansour Barnaoui at BAMMA 14 in December 2013. The former TUF contestant scored his most recent victory was against Tim Newman at BAMMA 13 in September 2013, where he won via unanimous decision. “Freakshow’s” opponent is former King of the Cage champion, Tony ‘Lionheart’ Hervey, who fights out of Detroit, Michigan. Hervey enters this fight coming off a decision victory over Curtis Demarce at ‘KOTC: Out Cold’ in November 2013. That win snapped a three fight losing skid the 28-year-old had been on during 2012/2013.

    Undefeated fighter Ryan Scope will be looking to extend his winning streak to nine by defeating an experienced and tough Ali Arish, who also has a long string of victories to his name, and is coming off a big win over Jack Mason at Cage Warriors 57.

    Mahmood Besharate will be making his third appearance fighting for BAMMA and he will no doubt look to make it three straight victories with the promotion on April 5th. The man standing across the cage from him will be German native Rany Saadeh who has finished his last two fights via TKO and has the chance to do it against Besharate.

    Lastly, Dyson Roberts has the opportunity to make up for his unsuccessful BAMMA debut against Jeremy Petley in September 2012 by putting in a good performance against Jefferson George, who will be looking to bounce back into the win column himself following a first round TKO loss against Tim Wilde at BAMMA 14 in December 2013.
