The latest addition to BAMMA 10 live September 15 on Fight Network is a light heavyweight showdown between Kevin Thompson and Tony Moran.

BAMMA 10, which emanates from Wembley Arena in London, U.K., will feature a main event between Andre Winner and Rob Sinclair for the BAMMA lightweight title.

Full press release below:

(Aug 31st.12) Europe’s leading Mixed Martial Arts promotion, BAMMA, is proud to announce Light Heavyweights Kevin Thompson vs. Tony Moran to BAMMA 10 alongside the finalised running order of the fight card so far. The event takes place at London Wembley on 15th September and is to be live televised on 5*, with the highlights to be broadcast on Channel 5. Internationally, BAMMA 10 will be broadcast live on Fight Network in Canada.

Kevin Thompson brings 13 wins and 4 losses since 2006 to the BAMMA cage. Only two of the Light Heavyweights fights to date have made it past the first round,  and the longest recorded time for Thompson to win a fight in is 2:27. With all his wins by TKO via punches or Rear Naked Choke, fans can certainly expect Thompson not to waste time in looking to take this fight to the ground.

Step in another guy with a history of ending it in the first round, Tony Moran. With wins via head-kick, knees, TKO and a variety of submissions, fans can expect to be treated to a diverse fighter with real knock out power, who is as dangerous standing up as he is on the ground.

BAMMA’s Head of Talent Relations, Jude Samuel, said: “I’m really happy to add this Light Heavyweight match to the BAMMA 10 card. Kevin Thompson has been around a long time and makes a lethal challenge. Tony Moran is a well rated and an exciting all-rounder who is capable of winning in any area of the fight. I’m looking forward to seeing how these guys square up in what I expect to be another FOTN contender. Fans certainly won’t be disappointed!”
