    (January 7th.13) The UK’s premier Mixed Martial Arts promotion, BAMMA, is proud to announce a Middleweight encounter between Kevin Thompson and Scott Askham for the preliminaries at BAMMA 12, which takes place at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on Saturday 9th March 2013.

    Tickets are on sale now from www.BAMMA.com, www.metroradioarena.co.uk and http://www.kililive.com/BAMMA

    BAMMA 12 sees UK #8 Light Heavyweight, Kevin Thompson drop to Middleweight on the back of his BAMMA 11 loss to Max ‘Power’ Nunes. The Cumbrian fighter presents a professional Mixed Martial Arts record of 13-6-0 of which all his victories have been delivered in less than 2 minutes and 27 seconds, via TKO or Submission. A meeting with Rab Truesdale in June 2012 resulted in his latest win, whilst recent losses have been at the hands of stiff competition, including Linton ‘The Swarm’ Vassell and Ricco Rodriguez.

    Doncaster’s Scott Askham holds an 8-0-0 record, with all documented wins secured between a rocket 4 seconds and 2:48; up to his latest bout which transpired in a Unanimous Decision win over Denniston Sutherland, in his first top ranking challenge. Ranked at #13 in the UK, Askham holds the UCFC Middleweight belt and fights out of Matrix, with the majority of his conquests via TKO.

    Scott Askham said:

    “Fight camp is going well and it’s great to be in our new gym, Ludus Magnus. This is Kevin's first fight at Middleweight so it’s going to be an interesting fight. I’m really looking forward to fight night and really happy that BAMMA has given me this opportunity. BAMMA is a great show and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

    BAMMA 12 will feature on Channel 5 and 5* in the UK; and will be televised on AXS-TV in the US, The Fight Network in Canada, Red Media in Russia, TV Esporte Interativo in Brazil and Setanta in Africa.
