Andre Winner Joins BAMMA, 8 Fights Added To BAMMA 7 on September 10th

Fresh off signing an exclusive multi-fight contract with BAMMA, UFC and TUF veteran Andre Winner will face lightweight prospect Jason Ball.

Grenadian born and Leicestershire resident, Andre Winner began his MMA career at Leicester Shootfighters, where training partners Paul “Semtex” Daley and Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy inspired him to take up the sport full time. After a decision loss to Ross Pearson in The Ultimate Fighter Finale, Winner went on to fight six times in the UFC until he was released in July. Part of Team Rough House and joining the BAMMA lightweight division, currently consisting of champion Rob Sinclair, Leonardo Santos, fellow Ultimate Fighter participant Efrain Escudero and BJJ black belt Tim Radcliffe, Andre Winner is excited about a return to the UK.

Winner had this to say about signing with Europe’s leading MMA promotion, “I’m really happy to be coming home and fighting for the very best in Europe. I look forward to putting on a good show for the fans.”

His opponent, Doncaster born Jason Ball, comes to the fight off a narrow decision loss to the current number one lightweight contender Leonardo Santos at BAMMA 6. Looking for a win to get back in the title race, Ball had this to say, “Andre is a great opponent and this will definitely make a great fight. But back to earn my title shot and if Andre is one of the men standing in my way then so be it.”

Coventry based kickboxing champion Pindi Madahar will make his professional MMA debut against Portsmouth’s Danny Compton and fellow Midlands fighter Eugene Fadiora will be looking to bounce back from his loss to Gunnar Nelson at BAMMA 4 by taking on top Irish contender Robert Devanne. Tim Newman steps in to take on Shan Omer with former Royal Marine Dale Hardiman fighting Scott Jansen. Lee Taylor returns after his 2nd round TKO win at BAMMA 6 to fight Birmingham based Tom Breese, Richard Walker will take on Shah Hussein and Fraser Opie returns after his BAMMA 6 loss to Ryan White, looking for redemption against Robert Krecicki.

Final additions to the fight card are expected to be announced within the next few days
