(October 15th.12) BAMMA is proud to announce another Lightweight Mixed Martial Arts bout to the BAMMA 11 card, as Marc Allen clashes with Dyson Roberts at Birmingham’s National Indoor Arena on 1st December.
Fighting out of Trojan Freefighters with a record of 6-1-0, Marc ‘Suplex’ Allen has conquered most of his opponents by TKO. A powerful wrestler with a good all round game, Allen’s skill set has been well honed through training with an internationally competitive team.
Marc Allen said:
"I'm excited to be back on BAMMA and I am looking to perform better than last time. I’m definitely going for a stoppage this time so I will not be holding back. I think that Dyson is a fairly well rounded fighter and comes out strong, so it's going to be a bloody good fight - quite literally."
Dyson Roberts makes a fierce prospect with a history of smashing his way to 1st round domination via Ground n Pound. However, the Team Titan fighter’s last outing at BAMMA 10 culminated in a Rear Naked Choke loss to Jeremy Petley, in what many considered to be Fight of the Night. The BAMMA 11 bout marks Roberts’ second fight at Lightweight, after a switch from the Welterweight category in which he debuted in 2008. Roberts currently stands with a record of 5-3-0.
Dyson Roberts said:
"My up and coming fight will be a great one, as I have a new kind of hunger after the way my last fight turned out. To dominate a whole fight then throw it away at the end of a round hurts a hell of a lot, especially when your opponent says 'Stop' half way through the round. You stop and the fight continues. I’m not bitter; I just feel a little cheated, but I blame myself only.
"So I will train as hard as I always do, but my opponent needs to be prepared for an even more switched on and aggressive Dyson Roberts. I NEED a win and nothing else will do. My fights are always exciting, but that will not be enough this time round. I want to stay with BAMMA and my win over Marc Allen will cement my place on BAMMA's Lightweight roster. I can not wait."
BAMMA’s Head of Talent Relations, Jude Samuel, said:
"Both fighters are coming off very tough fights on BAMMA 10, Dyson losing what many consider the Fight of the Night and Marc getting an extremely close, split decision win over Lee Taylor. Dyson is looking to get back onto a winning streak and is hungry for the win, while Allen is looking to make the Judges redundant by finishing the fight before the 3rd round."
