On March 9, BAMMA will host their first event of 2018 with BAMMA 34 in London. Here are three fighters to keep an eye on for this card.
Steve O’ Keeffe – This English submission specialist owns an 8-3 record in 11 career bouts with six of those wins coming via submission. Representing Revolution Martial Arts, O’Keeffe possesses a series of diverse submissions that can pose a significant danger if you are not careful. I think if he remains calm and composed while looking for an opening and then uses his strengths, the victory will go to him in this contest. O’ Keeffe’s last victory was a first-round TKO win at Fightstar Championship 13 in December 2017. In Martyn Harris, O’ Keeffe is battling a fellow ground specialist who holds a 4-3 record in seven career bouts consisting of three submissions and one decision. Harris’s last win was a first-round submission of Denzil Duncan at UCMMA 49 in November 2016. This will mark the BAMMA debut for both men.
Nathan Rose – A professional since February 2013 and representing Lion’s Pride MMA, Nathan Rose owns a 5-1 record in six career bouts consisting of three knockouts and two decisions. I think if Rose is able to mix things up and keep his opponent off base with constant pressure, he will prevail in this contest. Rose’s last victory was a split decision win over Ollie Mathis at BAMMA 31 in September 2017. In David Khalsa, Rose is facing a man who holds a 2-1 record in three career bouts consisting of one submission and one decision. Khalsa’s last victory came at BAMMA 31 in September 2017 where he defeated Charlie Howard via split decision.
Dominique Wooding – The Team Titan representative holds a 4-1 record in five career bouts with all four of his wins coming via knockout. I think that if Wooding is able to stay inside the pocket by using his precision striking, he will get the victory in this contest. Wooding’s last win came at BAMMA 32 in November 2017 where he defeated Blaine O’ Driscoll via knockout in round three. In Danny Randolph, Wooding is facing an undefeated fighter who holds a 2-0 record consisting of one knockout and one submission. Randolph’s last victory came at AFC 6 in September 2017 where he submitted Danny Stirk in the first round via arm triangle choke.
