BAMMA 7 Results: Wallhead and Daley get the win
BAMMA 7 blasted Birmingham at the weekend, proving at MMA doesn’t have to hit the capital to make an impact.With Tom Watson sidelined, it was a chance for MMA’s nearly men to jockey for position and ‘Judo’ Jimmy Wallhead took full advantage of his opportunity as a last-minute main event replacement. His win (split decision) edges him into number one middleweight contender position.
The signs were there from the outset: Rough House picked up four wins, with Paul Daley and Andre Winner setting the scene for a convincing main event win for ‘Judo’ Jimmy Wallhead. Daley in particular should be delighted with a dominant performance that earned him the decision, showing a huge improvement in his ground work on his way to victory over Jordan Radev. The bout was contested at a catchweight of 176 pounds but hopefully Daley’s performance will silence his critics.
It was the night of the rear naked choke, too, with Dale Hardiman (def. Scott Jansen), Chris Fishgold (def. Jeremy Petley), Eugene Fadiora (def. Robert Devanne), Tom Breese (def. Lee Taylor), and Erik Perez (def. James Brum) all picking up the win via submission.
It says a lot for the event organisation that the prelims were so exciting. Five bouts were decided in the very first round, adding a pacey twist to the early fights, but former TUF contestant Dean Amasinger’s victory over Shah Hussein was more hard-fought, earning the win via unanimous decision.
Huge thanks to Liam at BAMMA for the excellent media facilities – can’t wait for the next event.
