Full press releases and full fight card below:

(October 15th.12) BAMMA is proud to announce a Bantamweight Mixed Martial Arts bout to the BAMMA 11 card at Birmingham's National Indoor Arena on 1st December, as Nathan Greyson and Bryan Creighton go to battle.

Nathan Greyson fights out of Team Titan with a 3-1-0 professional record and 5 straight wins at Semi Pro.  This explosive, relentlessly aggressive up comer has never yet been the distance and has scored all his victories via TKO. The longest it's taken the 22 year old to dominate an opponent at professional level has been 2 minutes 30 seconds.

British Army Fusilier, Bryan Creighton, moved over to MMA from a successful Thai-boxing career in which he won the following championships:

2005 WAKO Kickboxing and Thai boxing Featherweight
2005 WMF World Championships Bangkok Bronze Featherweight
2006 ISKA British Lightweight Thai boxing
2008 IKF Northwest Lightweight Thai boxing
2008 IKF British Lightweight Thai boxing
2010 Golden Belt Association - Golden Belt Hardcore World Featherweight

Debuting in Professional MMA on short notice, Creighton won his first fight on majority decision in July.  A fierce combatant that puts it all on the line, Creighton makes a blistering match for Greyson.

Creighton said:

"After dominating the world of Thai boxing I have transferred my skills from Thai boxing and boxing over to the world of Mixed Martial Arts. I am honoured to be fighting on the biggest show in the UK and I promise to raise the bar in my weight category. I believe I am a well-rounded fighter with many weapons to my arsenal and fans can expect fireworks. My prediction for the fight is pain for my opponent... left , right, left, GOODNIGHT.

"I would like to thank my fans, thank my friends and family for their belief in me and my sponsors, The 2nd Battalion, The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, Bodytorque Strength & Conditioning, Dead Fast Clothing, Sapphire MMA and TFL Sports Agency."

Greyson said:

"My Message to the fans is don't blink and my message to my opponent is don't blink."

BAMMA's Head of Talent Relations, Jude Samuel, said:

"This fight is about revenge: Creighton beat Greyson's team mate earlier this year and Greyson is looking to settle the score. This; plus the talent, explosivity and heart that these fresh talents bring, make all the right ingredients for a preliminary Fight of the Night. Creighton brings the support of the Fusiliers into the house, and Greyson brings the London crowd, so you can expect some noise when these two go head to head at BAMMA 11."

(October 15th.12) BAMMA is proud to announce another Lightweight Mixed Martial Arts bout to the BAMMA 11 card, as Marc Allen clashes with Dyson Roberts at Birmingham's National Indoor Arena on 1st December.

Fighting out of Trojan Freefighters with a record of 6-1-0, Marc 'Suplex' Allen has conquered most of his opponents by TKO.  A powerful wrestler with a good all round game, Allen's skill set has been well honed through training with an internationally competitive team.

Marc Allen said:

"I'm excited to be back on BAMMA and I am looking to perform better than last time. I'm definitely going for a stoppage this time so I will not be holding back. I think that Dyson is a fairly well rounded fighter and comes out strong, so it's going to be a bloody good fight - quite literally."

Dyson Roberts makes a fierce prospect with a history of smashing his way to 1st round domination via Ground n Pound.  However, the Team Titan fighter's last outing at BAMMA 10 culminated in a Rear Naked Choke loss to Jeremy Petley, in what many considered to be Fight of the Night. The BAMMA 11 bout marks Roberts' second fight at Lightweight, after a switch from the Welterweight category in which he debuted in 2008.  Roberts currently stands with a record of 5-3-0.

Dyson Roberts said:

"My up and coming fight will be a great one, as I have a new kind of hunger after the way my last fight turned out. To dominate a whole fight then throw it away at the end of a round hurts a hell of a lot, especially when your opponent says 'Stop' half way through the round. You stop and the fight continues. I'm not bitter; I just feel a little cheated, but I blame myself only.

"So I will train as hard as I always do, but my opponent needs to be prepared for an even more switched on and aggressive Dyson Roberts. I NEED a win and nothing else will do. My fights are always exciting, but that will not be enough this time round. I want to stay with BAMMA and my win over Marc Allen will cement my place on BAMMA's Lightweight roster. I can not wait."

BAMMA's Head of Talent Relations, Jude Samuel, said:

"Both fighters are coming off very tough fights on BAMMA 10, Dyson losing what many consider the Fight of the Night and Marc getting an extremely close, split decision win over Lee Taylor.  Dyson is looking to get back onto a winning streak and is hungry for the win, while Allen is looking to make the Judges redundant by finishing the fight before the 3rd round."

(October 15th.12) BAMMA is proud to announce a Light Heavyweight Mixed Martial Arts bout to the BAMMA 11 card, as Anth Taylor clashes with Max Nunes at Birmingham's National Indoor Arena on 1st December.

Anth Taylor stands undefeated with a record of 5-0-0, in which none of his fights have gone the distance and he has scored four of his wins in the first round. Taylor's last outing saw him triumph over Mark Godbeer via TKO, just 1 minute and 22 seconds into round 2.  Three of Taylor's wins have come by TKO,  two by KO & one by submission.

Undefeated Max 'Power' Nunes has clocked up an impressive record of 8-0-0 over the past two years.  The London based Swede has stopped all of his opponents in the 1st round, with the exception of the hitherto undefeated Iain Martell, whom he finished in round 2.  With successes via TKO and submission, Nunes' last fight saw him submit the doubly experienced Tony Moran at BAMMA 10.  Nunes fights out of Nick Osipczak's New Wave Academy and holds the Fury MMA Light Heavyweight title.

Max 'Power' Nunes said:

"I am really looking forward to fighting on BAMMA again. This will be my second appearance and I am hoping to put on a good show for all the UK MMA fans."

BAMMA's Head of Talent Relations, Jude Samuel, said:

"Taylor vs. Nunes is going to be a blistering battle as both guys are heavy hitters who have so far proved invincible. Nunes has a real buzz around him right now; while Taylor is a fan favourite in the North East.  I've had my eye on Anth for a while and he was due to fight Opie at BAMMA 9, but the fight fell through when Opie got injured. I'm really excited about this fight and it's certainly one the fans will be looking forward to.  Taylor and Nunes represent what makes the Light Heavyweight division so exciting at its best: These two inextinguishable athletes bring all the Herculean Knock Out power of the Heavyweights, but at a faster and explosive pace."
