BAMMA World Middleweight Title
Andy “Lions Paw” DeVent Vs. Cheick Kone
The BAMMA 21 Main Event will see a new Middleweight champion crowned in the shape of either Andy “Lion’s Paw” DeVent or France’s Cheick Kone.
The BAMMA Lonsdale British Champion Andy DeVent most recently fought at BAMMA 19 in Blackpool, where he beat Conor “Da Crook” Cooke via Rear Naked Choke in the first round. DeVent now trains out of the ASW Gym in Liverpool, alongside BAMMA Lonsdale British Lightweight champion Marc “Bonecrusher” Diakiese, Scott Askham & Mike Wilkinson. DeVent’s record now stands at 12-9.
Frenchman Cheick Kone shocked the world with his 25 second destruction of Chris Fields at BAMMA 18. Following on from an almost identical defeat of feared European middleweight Benjamin Brinsa in 45 seconds, Kone is now looking for his third scalp en route to his first major title. Now on a four fight win streak, the Atch Academy fighter record stands at 11-3.
BAMMA World Heavyweight Title
Mark “The Hand Of” Godbeer Vs. Paul “The Titan” Taylor
BAMMA gets ready to crown it’s first ever Heavyweight Champion at BAMMA 21. Mark “The Hand Of” Godbeer returns to fight for the belt after his defeat of Thomas Denham at BAMMA 19, and will face off against Birmingham’s own Paul “The Titan” Taylor.
Mark “The Hand Of” Godbeer recently returned to his original training camp at All or Nothing. The impact was instant with his dominant display against Denham in Blackpool. Godbeer is undefeated at BAMMA and now looks to add the BAMMA World title to his 9-2 record.
Paul “The Titan” Taylor was meant to make his BAMMA debut against Callum Cooke, but the bout was cancelled due to injury. Taylor now gets the chance to take the biggest win of his career and the BAMMA World Title on the 13th June. Currently on a 4 fight win streak, the West Midlands based Taylor record stands at 8-3.
