Edwards vs Murrie

It has just been announced that Europe’s flagship Mixed Martial Arts promotion, BAMMA, is proud to announce a British Welterweight title fight to the BAMMA 15 card, as Leon ‘Rocky’ Edwards challenges reigning champion, Wayne Murrie.

BAMMA 15 takes place at the Copper Box in London’s Olympic Park on 5th April.

Fighting out of Doncaster’s Ludus Magnus, Wayne ‘The Caveman’ Murrie boasts a record of 17-5-1 and the BAMMA British Welterweight belt. BAMMA 13 saw Murrie win the championship against Michael Johnson via Rear Naked Choke in just 3:23, gaining him his 13th 1st round victory. 59% of his wins have come via Submission and 29% by TKO/ KO, while Murrie has also proved he can go the distance against some of the best. Murrie comes from a decorated Thai-boxing background

Rising talent Leon ‘Rocky’ Edwards has never been beaten. With a professional MMA record of 5-1-0 achieved since 2011 and an Amateur record of 7-0-0, Edwards’ sole loss came via disqualification for an illegal knee. Edwards debuted at BAMMA for BAMMA 11 with a victory over Jonathan Bilton via TKO, just 1:11 in to round 2. He then clinched a Submission win at BAMMA 13 when he defeated Adam Bousif via Arm-Triangle choke. Edwards returned for BAMMA 14 where he notably devastated striker Wendle Lewis at 1:20 into the 1st round. With a 60% KO/TKO victory rate, Rocky Edwards has been cited among British talent to watch in 2014 by Fighters Only magazine. Edwards fights out of Birmingham’s UTC.
