Ed ‘King’ Arthur Vs. Cameron ‘Camchida’ Else – Bantamweight Bout

Marc ‘Bonecrusher’ Diakiese and Kane Mousah are not the only ones on a collision course to settle their differences in an almighty grudge match at BAMMA 25. Ed ‘King’ Arthur (6-1) will stand toe to toe with the man he describes as ‘his nemisis’ on the 14th May at the Barclaycard Arena. Coming off the back of the BAMMA Fight of the Year 2015 against Shay Walsh, Arthur will be looking to vanquish his foe on the path to reclaiming the BAMMA Bantamweight Title.

Cameron ‘Camchida’ Else (3-2) blasted into the BAMMA Bantamweight division at BAMMA 23, where he made short work of the highly rated Jay ‘The Red Bull’ Butler in just 2:48 of the first round by submission. The Silverbacks MMA stand out has long been clamouring for the fight with Ed Arthur, after Ed criticised his performance against Spencer Hewitt, telling him how “he would never get to his level”. Cameron has responded by saying “that his day is coming” and now that date has been set as May 14th.

The bad blood will only intensify in the build up as both are not known for remaining silent, so prepare for an all out war as two of the BAMMA Bantamweight division’s hottest stars collide in a grudge match that people will be talking about for a long time to come.

Rick Selvarajah Vs. Jay ‘The Prodigy’ Dods (Lightweight Bout)

Rick Selvarajah (7-1) returns to BAMMA after suffering a devastating KO in his last bout at BAMMA 22 at the hands of Lonsdale Lightweight Champion Marc ‘Bonecrusher’ Diakiese. Looking to get back on track and return to title contention, the Premier MMA based fighter will be looking to impose his aggressive all round MMA style on Dods early. The kickboxing black belt will be ready and waiting for the debuting Dods in Birmingham and it should be explosive.

Undefeated fighter Jay ‘The Prodigy’ Dods (5-0) finally gets his chance on the biggest platform in Europe, when he makes his debut at the Barclaycard Arena against Selvarajah at BAMMA 25. The popular striker fights out of Nova Forca and is coming off his most recent win via a first round KO last June. Training in Aikido since an early age, Dods is another high octane fighter who is relentless from the moment the first bell sounds. With only one of his fights going to submission, he will be looking to push the pace and hand Selvarajah his second loss and his first win at BAMMA.
