On Saturday, BAMMA returned to action when it visited the LG Arena in Birmingham, England for its 14th event.

The night’s main event featured knockout artist Paul Daley against Brazilian Romario Manoel da Silva. Both fighters were looking to get back in the win column after recent losses. The UFC, Strikeforce and Bellator veteran Daley dropped a decision to Alexander Yakovlev in November, while da Silva succumbed to a guillotine choke against Valdir Araujo in October under the CFA banner.

Also on the main card, former Ultimate Fighter finalist Colin Fletcher challenged Tunisia’s Mansour Barnaoui for the promotion’s lightweight title, Swedish import Max Nunes battled Romanian Ion Pascu, and Bellator veteran “Judo” Jim Wallhead faced off with France’s Florent Betorangal.

Another belt was on the line in the undercard action, as Michael Johnson met Wayne Murrie for the BAMMA Lonsdale welterweight title.

In all, 13 bouts filled the night’s action. The four-fight main card aired live on AXS TV beginning at 4 p.m. ET. The nine preliminary card fights went un-aired in North America.
