BAMMA 31 Fight Summaries And Highlights:

BAMMA Welterweight Title: Nathan Jones (11-5) vs. Alex Lohore (12-1)

Lohore pressures early and backs Jones up against the fence. There’s a brief pause for an unintentional headbutt but the fight restarts in the middle of the cage. Both throw heavy but fail to land and Jones then trips Lohore to the mat. Jones looks to advance in Lohore’s guard and he pierces through after landing a volley of ground and pound. Lohore makes it back to his feet but eats a solid knee as he does. Lohore then presses Jones against the cage but Jones retaliates with another nice trip. With the round coming to an end the fight makes it back to the feet. Lohore breaks away from Jones, lands a big right hand and then follows up with a flying knee that puts Jones to sleep! WOW what a finish!

Mike Shipman def. Yannick Bahati via KO (Spinning Back Fist) Round Three – 1:17 – New BAMMA middleweight champion

Shipman catches Bahati early on with a left hand that Bahati acknowledges with a nod. Shipman then lands a series of knees to the midsection and pushed Bahati against the cage. Bahati then lands a nice right hand of his own but Shipman circles away well and the two end up clinched against the cage. Shipman takes him down and smothers him on the ground. He gets lucky to get away with a warning as he knees Bahati borderline illegally as he gets up from the mat. Round one to Shipman.

Bahati has a better opening to round two and starts aggressively with Shipman on the backfoot. Bahati is bleeding from the right eye but it doesn’t seem to be obstructing his vision and he’s still landing some big shots. Shipman now gets warned for running and he eats another right hand and has a takedown stuffed. Bahati then on top of him on the mat. Bahati stays there for the rest of the round and the tide appears to be turning.

Round three begins and it looks like it’s Bahati in control. Out of nowhere Shipman then lands a spinning backfist and knocks Bahati out clean to the canvas. We have a new BAMMA middleweight champion – Mike Shipman.

Daniel Crawford def. Damien Lapilus via TKO (strikes), Round 2 – NEW BAMMA featherweight champion

Crawford got the better to the stand up in round one and had Lapilus on the back foot for the majority of the opening round. Crawford then came out swinging hard in the second round and he caught Lapilus with a big right hook. Lapilus fell to his knees on the mat and Crawford pounced laying in the ground and pound. After several unanswered blows the referee stepped in to call the fight. Daniel Crawford is the new BAMMA featherweight title holder.

Alex Montagnani def. Martin Hudson via TKO (strikes), Round 1 – 2;08

Montagnani weathers and early onslaught by Hudon and takes him down to the mat with a nicely time body throw. From there he pounds away on Hudson until the referee stops the fight. This looked too easy.

Nathan Rose def. Ollie Mathis via Split Decision

UFC light heavyweight Jimi Manuwa is in the corner of Rose who starts out nicely landing some leg kicks. Mathis then takes Rose down for the rest of the round and stays active on top landing the off bit of ground and pound – Mathis warned for a low blow. Rose starts well in round two and gets a flash knockdown with a right hand.

The rest of the round is pretty even but Mathis is warned for a second time for a low blow. Fiery start to the third as Rose opens strongly again. Mathis complains of an eye poke and there’s a short pause. Fight resumes and Rose continues to land kicks to the calf. Mathis throwing leather but he’s caching arms and shoulders. Mathis complains about another eye poke but this time the fight isn’t paused. Rose stuffs a takedown and that’s a wrap. Rose should take it on my card having won rounds 2 and 3.

Tommy King def. James Reedman via TKO (Strikes) Round One: 1:12

Quickest fight of the evening so far. King looked dangerous on the feet from the outset and he caught Reedman with a right hand before finishing him a flurry of follow up strikes. Impressive.

Javid Basharat def. Tony Hall via submission (guillotine), Round 2 – 1:42

Basharat came out throw wild offence from the get go and had Hall back pedalling into the fence. Hall attempted to counter but his strikes looked laboured having eaten several body shots early on. Funny exchange at the end as Basharat slips and Hall charges him with a knee and misses by a country mile. Basharat finished the fight in the second round after taking Hall down to the mat and finishing him off with a slick guillotine.

Liam Davies def. Tanvir Boora via TKO (Strikes), Round 2

Boora took the fight to Davies early on and took him down, Davies did some great work off his back and landed some short sharp elbows before reversing the position. Davies then attempted several heel hooks and did some big damage with ground and pound. Boora looked bad heading back to his stall. Davies then went on to finish the fight in the second round after taking Boora down to the mat and landing some massive ground and pound before referee Goddard stopped the fight.

David Khalsa def. Charlie-Boy Howard via split decision

Fast paced start to the evening with both fighters standing in the pocket and trading leather through round one. Round two also proved to be very competitive, Khalsa landed a big head kick, but Howard ate it well. Khalsa scored a knockdown at the end of the round though to steal it. Howard attempted to hit some takedowns in round three but they were all stuffed. Both men showed great cardio but I scored it for Khalsa.
