The British Association of Mixed Martial Arts (BAMMA) next event, BAMMA 10, will take place on September 15 at the Wembley Arena in London. The event will be headlined by a Lightweight title bout between Rob Sinclair (11-2) and Andre Winner (14-6-1) and a Middleweight title bout between Jack Marshman (10-1) and Andrew Punshon(11-5). The show will air LIVE on 5*, with the highlights to be broadcast on the U.K’s Channel 5.
Champion Rob Sinclair feels like the underdog in this bout and said: "The fight is set now. It's been in the making for almost a year and it is going be the biggest domestic lightweight contest the UK has ever had, on the biggest show in Europe, for the biggest title BAMMA has, and on live TV. I'm very privileged to be a part of it; this is going to be the biggest fight of my life and I will be ready. There's no messing around now, this is serious stuff. I will be the underdog no doubt, but that's what I thrive on. This is will be the hardest hitting, strongest, most explosive Rob 'C4' Sinclair you will ever see and that's a promise!"
The Ultimate Fighter: United States vs. United Kingdom finalist and UFC veteran Andre Winner says: "I've been looking forward to this fight for a long time and I know a lot of people want to know who'd win out of me and Rob: Well, on September 15th they're gonna find out. I'm gonna be coming with skills he's not faced before, so unless he can deal with them I'll be walking away with the belt. I'm in great shape and hungry to fight again so people should expect fireworks!"
BAMMA's Head of Talent Relations, Jude Samuel, says: "This is a fight that fans have been looking forward to for some time and I can't wait to see it come to fruition at London Wembley. Rob Sinclair has been a great advocate of BAMMA and we are proud to have him as our current Lightweight champ. BAMMA 7 and BAMMA 8 saw Andre Winner return to form over a couple of explosive clashes and Andre has worked hard for this title shot. Both fighters are spectacular strikers at the height of their game and both fighters have truly earned this opportunity to fight on our new UK TV platform at 5. We are proud to have Andre and Rob as faces of BAMMA 10."
