Over the years, BAMMA has done a remarkable job at bringing some of the best European talents together under one roof. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet two European lions looking to do their home nations proud.
Nathan Rose – A professional since February 2013 and representing Lion’s Pride MMA, Nathan Rose owns a 6-1 record in seven career bouts consisting of three knockouts and three decisions. Prior to making his BAMMA debut in 2017, Rose competed for UCMMA and Fusion Fighting Championship. Rose is currently 2-0 under the BAMMA banner. In his MMA debut at UCMMA 32, he defeated Paul Kingdon via unanimous decision. Then in his Fusion Fighting Championship debut at Fusion Fighting Championship 22 Rose defeated Linas Meistavicius via TKO in the first round. In his second appearance with Fusion Fighting Championship at FFC 23, he defeated Vitor Silva via TKO in the first round. For his third outing with Fusion Fighting Championship at FFC 24 Rose defeated John Spencer via TKO in the first round to earn his third straight knockout victory. In his BAMMA debut at BAMMA 31 in London, he defeated Ollie Mathis via split decision. For his second outing with BAMMA at BAMMA 34 in London Rose defeated David Khalsa via unanimous decision to earn his fifth consecutive victory. This English lion has certainly made his presence known in BAMMA’S ultra competitive featherweight division with an all mighty roar!
Keith McCabe –A professional since April 2016 and representing Team Ryano under the leadership of head coach Andy Ryan, Keith McCabe owns a 3-3 record in six career bouts with all three of his victories coming via submission. McCabe has spent the majority of his professional career with BAMMA. He has also competed for On Top Promotions. In his BAMMA debut at BAMMA 26 in Dublin, McCabe submitted Aidan Brooks via armbar in the first round. He also tapped out Scott Mulgrew in round one via triangle choke at On Top Weekender. In his third outing with BAMMA at BAMMA 28, McCabe submitted Glenn Irvine in the first round via heel hook. Proceed with caution when going to the ground with this Irish lion otherwise you will end up getting butchered!
