The SSE Arena, Wembley is ready to rumble with the biggest fighting event in London this September as BAMMA returns to the nation’s capital. BAMMA today adds a Middleweight title defence.
Yannick ‘Black Mamba’ Bahati Vs Mike ‘Sea Bass’ Shipman
In a ferocious Middleweight match up, champion Yannick Bahati makes his first title defence against an incredibly tough opponent in the shape of Mike ‘Seabass’ Shipman. The challenger is undefeated since his debut, with his last two wins coming on the London Bellator events. However, the ever confident Champion Bahati will be undeterred by the Challenger’s credentials as he continues on his own path to cementing his name as the best Middleweight in the division.
“I come to entertain the fans and put another bum away early at Wembley London and will cement my name in the history book of UK MMA”. – Yannick Bahati BAMMA World Middelweight Champion
“I’m excited to become BAMMA champion, it’s a well respected title and will attract the type of challengers I need to progress me as a fighter. I’m also excited to fight Yannick, he has a good record and some attributes but I am a very bad match for him.” – Mike ‘Sea Bass’ Shipman
