Ewin vs. Noon, Maguire vs. Glover and Allen vs. Taylor Added to BAMMA 10
By FCF Staff
The British Association of Mixed Martial Arts has confirmed three more bouts for its upcoming September 15th event at the London Wembley, which will feature Andre Winner versus lightweight champ Rob Sinclair.
In another lightweight tilt, Tommy Maguire (11-4) will take on Mark Glover (6-1). Maguire is coming off back-to-back wins over Danny Fletcher and Joe Holder, while Glover has won three straight.
“It’s a good fight and I’m excited to be fighting in an arena on the biggest show in the UK,” Glover was quoted saying in a press release from the promotion. “You can’t trust a ginger but I’ve seen him fight before so I know what he’s all about. I’m definitely stopping him by Submission or TKO and he’s not going to make it to the third round.”
At middleweight, ten year veteran Matt Ewin (22-12) will battle Carl Noon (7-2). Ewin has incurred three straight losses and most recently was submitted by Lee Barnes at BAMMA 9 in March.
“I’m glad to have the opportunity to fight at BAMMA again, especially after the last time,” noted Ewin. “It’s going to be a hard fight for but ultimately I’ve got a better ground game and wrestling than Carl, so I’ll take control if he tries to take it to the ground. My stand up is better than what I’ve seen of Carl’s unless he catches me with one of his big left hooks. Carl is very strong, but he relies on it too much and tries to bully people. He won’t be able to do that with me; I’ll use his strength. He always goes 100% which is great, but this is not a good fight for him. He has the strength but not the skill. It’s great to be back on BAMMA, one of the biggest shows to be on. I’ll be going out to make my mark again and to get in contention for a shot at whoever’s got the belt.”
Noon hasn’t fought since September, when he was stopped by Jack Marshman at BAMMA 7, which ended the middleweight’s seven fight winning streak.
“The BAMMA 10 card is packed full of excellent fights and mine will be no different. Matt Ewin is a very good veteran and exactly the type of challenge I need for my return. I respect Ewin but come September 15th I will do my job and get the win.”
Another of today’s additions includes a lightweight bout between Lee Taylor and Marc Allen. Taylor (3-5) is looking to end a three fight losing skid while Allen (4-2) is coming off a submission loss to Mark Tucker.
BAMMA 10 will be broadcast live in the U.S. by AXS TV and The Fight Network in Canada.
