BAMMA 10 is to be live televised on 5*, with highlights to be broadcast on Channel 5. Internationally, the event will be broadcast live on HDNet (AXSTV) in the US, The Fight Network in Canada, Esporta in Brazil, Red Media in Russia, Setanta in Africa and TDN in Latin America.
Bristol?s Sam ?Blam? Mensah (2-1-0) carried an unblemished record at Amateur and Pro up to his BAMMA 9 loss against the more experienced Rab
Truesdale. The Team Trojan fighter has a history of bee-lining to stop his opponent; and most of his wins have been scored in the first round, within times that include 37 seconds and 45 seconds. Mensah is a powerful prospect with shattering hands and a dominant style, that sees him push to dictate the fight and quickly annihilate all opportunities for whoever is stood in his way.
Sam Mensah said:
?I?m really glad I?ve got the opportunity to fight on BAMMA again. I can?t wait to get back in that cage. I don?t know too much about Mike Neun, but from what I?ve seen he looks like a really tough fellow and a bit of a ?nightmare? so I?m looking forward to fighting him. I don?t like to predict too much about a fight, but he has a Muay Thai background and looks good on his feet so I think that?s where the majority of the fight will be; but I?m comfortable wherever the fight ends up. I can?t see it going the distance though as we both like to hit, so I?m hoping to put on a good show and give the BAMMA fans what they want to see: A spectacular fight.?
Mike ?Nightmare? Neun?s MMA record doesn?t tell all about the Keddles and MMA Den fighter. Besides one Pro victory and 3 Amateur wins, Neun brings a longer fighting experience over from Muay Thai with a number of titles to boot: the ISKA Southern Area Muay Thai title, the ISKA Southern Area Semi Pro/Amateur MMA title and the Fight Scene Pro MMA title. With a background that incorporates BJJ, Muay Thai and boxing, Neun likes to launch a striking attack in the cage and his fighting strengths are the knees, elbows and clinch.
Mike Neun said:
?I’m aware of his power and I very much respect that and take nothing for granted. As always I’m confident in my abilities. I have power and I have a varied arsenal and I’m happy wherever the fight ends up. BAMMA?s one of the biggest shows in Europe and I?m very happy to be fighting here and I’m looking to make my friends and family proud with a win here. People say I’m relatively new to MMA with a few Semi Pro fights and 1 Pro fight but I’m no novice: I’ve been working hard for collectively 10 years on different fighting styles and I love the buzz that MMA gives. They call me ‘The Nightmare’ because I don’t stop coming.?
Twenty year old Tom Breese is one the UK?s most exciting Welterweight prospects. The Birmingham fighter stands undefeated with a Pro record of 4-0-0 at BAMMA, in which he has stopped all his opponents before the third round; and a previous Amateur record of 8-0-0. Formidable on the ground, Breese has finished all his challengers via Submission until he stopped Mark Tucker with knees at BAMMA 9.
“MMA is my life. I’m improving every day and can’t wait to showcase my new skills on Warren Kee and keep proving why I’m the country?s top prospect. I can’t wait to fight on September 15th”
Warren ?Relentless? Kee brings a record of 7-1-1 to the BAMMA stage, with the majority of his wins via 1st or 2nd round TKO. Likened to a caged
tiger, the mohawked fighter is known for a devastating style in which he likes to grind his opponents down with ?elbows, foot stomps and relentless pressure?. Son of British Commonwealth and Olympic hammer throwing champ, Jack Kee, Warren knows the level of sacrifice it takes to succeed in sport; and recently gave up job, girlfriend and home to sleep in his van and devote his life to training with Team Tsunami in Cambridge.
?I?m super excited to be a part of BAMMA 10 and from watching other events, Wembley Arena is an awesome venue to fight at. I have a very tough fight in Tom Breese. He is undefeated and highly rated with skills in all areas of the game. I don?t believe I have proved myself yet and I?m fired up to compete and put a dominant performance in against Tom. I have the best skill set I ever have had so I am confident in my abilities and this will bring me victory on the night, it will be a great fight for the fans as we both look for the finish.?
BAMMA?s Head of Talent Relations, Jude Samuel, said:
?I see this match between two powerhouses translating into a fast paced and devastating arms race that will weigh heavily on speed and effectiveness of strikes. While Mensah can be overwhelming in the cage, will Neun prove too much of a ?Nightmare? with his greater experience? Mensah?s fight name nicely sums up how I visualize this fight panning out: I can promise fans that there will be plenty of ?Blam? ?Blam? ?Blam? in this clash.?
?Breese is renowned for an impressive and technical ground game, but he is also a gifted striker working with some of the best boxing talents in the country. Kee will bring a barrage of striking action that is bound to put Tom to the test in an area in which he has yet to prove himself. Fans can wager their bets on a dynamic and vicious display that draws on a spectrum of Mixed Martial Arts possibilities. Both these guys? stars are on the rise and this clash between two hot prospects is one no UK MMA fan should want to miss?.
