Apr 28, 2015
(PRESS RELEASE) -- BAMMA, leaders in MMA sports entertainment and the home of European MMA, announce two title fights for BAMMA 21 to be held on the 13th June at the Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham. The event will be broadcast on SPIKE TV UK and around the world.

Andy DeVent Vs Cheick Kone (BAMMA World Middleweight Title)

Mark Godbeer Vs. Paul Taylor (BAMMA World Heavyweight Title)

BAMMA World Middleweight Title

Andy DeVent Vs. Cheick Kone

The BAMMA 21 Main Event will see a new Middleweight champion crowned in the shape of either Andy DeVent or France's Cheick Kone.

The BAMMA Lonsdale British Champion Andy DeVent most recently fought at BAMMA 19 in Blackpool, where he beat Conor Cooke via Rear Naked Choke in the first round. DeVent now trains out of the ASW Gym in Liverpool, alongside BAMMA Lonsdale British Lightweight champion Marc Diakiese, Scott Askham & Mike Wilkinson. DeVent's record now stands at 12-9.

Frenchman Cheick Kone shocked the world with his 25 second destruction of Chris Fields at BAMMA 18. Following on from an almost identical defeat of feared European middleweight Benjamin Brinsa in 45 seconds, Kone is now looking for his third scalp en route to his first major title. Now on a four fight win streak, the Atch Academy fighter record stands at 11-3.

BAMMA World Heavyweight Title

Mark Godbeer Vs. Paul Taylor

BAMMA gets ready to crown it's first ever Heavyweight Champion at BAMMA 21. Mark Godbeer returns to fight for the belt after his defeat of Thomas Denham at BAMMA 19, and will face off against Birmingham's own Paul Taylor.

Mark Godbeer recently returned to his original training camp at All or Nothing. The impact was instant with his dominant display against Denham in Blackpool. Godbeer is undefeated at BAMMA and now looks to add the BAMMA World title to his 9-2 record.

Paul Taylor was meant to make his BAMMA debut against Callum Cooke, but the bout was cancelled due to injury. Taylor now gets the chance to take the biggest win of his career and the BAMMA World Title on the 13th June. Currently on a 4 fight win streak, the West Midlands based Taylor record stands at 8-3.
