Sinclair (10-2) is coming off a stoppage win over Martin Begely, at an Olympian MMA Championships event last month, to extend his winning streak to three. Santos (9-3) earned a unanimous decision win over Jason Ball at BAMMA 6 in May and is 4-1 in his last five bouts.
Escudero (16-3) will be looking to rebound from a UD loss to Fabricio Camoes at Tachi Palace Fights 9 last month, which ended the Arizona fighter’s three fight winning streak. Radcliffe (11-4) is coming off a submission win over Alexandre Izidro at a World Fighting Championships card on May 7th and is 3-2 in his last five outings.
Ewin (22-9-1) competed at BAMMA 6 in May and worked his way to a unanimous decision win over UFC vet Ivan Salaverry. The British vet has now won six straight. Petrescu (11-2) also fought on that same card and earned a majority decision nod over Joao Paulo de Souza.
More bouts for BAMMA 7 will be announced soon.
