(July 11th.12) Europe’s leading Mixed Martial Arts promotion, BAMMA, is proud to announce the much anticipated clash between BAMMA’s World Lightweight Champion Rob Sinclair and challenger, Andre Winner.
Hailing from Burnley in Lancashire, Sinclair’s performance to date is reflected in a 11-2-0 record. Beating Nathan Beer for the World title at BAMMA 2, Sinclair went onto defend the belt against Daniel Weichel at BAMMA 3 and Diego Vital at BAMMA 7. The BAMMA 10 square off will see Sinclair look to again defend his title against internationally renowned talent.
Leicester athlete, Andre Winner, returns to BAMMA for a third time following victories against Jason Ball at BAMMA 7 and Diego Gonzalez at BAMMA 8. Breaking into the public eye with his part in the TV series, The Ultimate Fighter: United States vs. United Kingdom, Winner’s outstanding striking skills saw him fight five times at the UFC before being snapped up by BAMMA.
Rob Sinclair said: "The fight between Rob Sinclair and Andre Winner is set now. It’s been in the making for almost a year and it is going be the biggest domestic lightweight contest the UK has ever had, on the biggest show in Europe, for the biggest title BAMMA has, and on live TV. I’m very privileged to be a part of it; this is going to be the biggest fight of my life and I will be ready. There’s no messing around now, this is serious stuff. I will be the underdog no doubt, but that’s what I thrive on. This is will be the hardest hitting, strongest, most explosive Rob 'C4' Sinclair you will ever see and that’s a promise!"
Andre Winner says: "I’ve been looking forward to this fight for a long time and I know a lot of people want to know who'd win out of me and Rob: Well, on September 15th they’re gonna find out. I’m gonna be coming with skills he’s not faced before, so unless he can deal with them I’ll be walking away with the belt. I’m in great shape and hungry to fight again so people should expect fireworks!"
BAMMA’s Head of Talent Relations, Jude Samuel, says: "This is a fight that fans have been looking forward to for some time and I can’t wait to see it come to fruition at London Wembley. Rob Sinclair has been a great advocate of BAMMA and we are proud to have him as our current Lightweight champ. BAMMA 7 and BAMMA 8 saw Andre Winner return to form over a couple of explosive clashes and Andre has worked hard for this title shot. Both fighters are spectacular strikers at the height of their game and both fighters have truly earned this opportunity to fight on our new UK TV platform at 5. We are proud to have Andre and Rob as faces of BAMMA 10."
