(Feb 17th.12) BAMMA, Europe's leading Mixed Martial Arts promotion, is proud to announce Przemyslaw 'Misiek' Mysiala vs Jason Jones onto the main card for an electric Light Heavyweight clash at BAMMA 9, which takes place on Saturday 24th March at Birmingham's National Indoor Arena.
Golden Glory's judoka, Jason Jones, is hungry to gain a shot at the Light Heavyweight title. Boasting 25 battles and 16 wins, Jones has victories by both knock-out and by submission. Misiek steps into the cage with an equally impressive array of experience and also has 16 wins to his name, but just 6 losses. Formerly the UK's number 1 Light Heavyweight, Misiek has had time out due to injury which led to a slide in his ranking. Passionate to win back his former no. 1 position and with a win over Rea under his belt, Misiek has for a long time had his eyes set on Manuwa. This powerful match-up creates desirable opportunities for both fighters.
BAMMA Matchmaker, Jude Samuel, says:
"Jason Jones is making his debut on BAMMA, but is a very experienced fighter who has fought the likes of Ninja Rua at Middleweight in the past: He now has is eye on the BAMMA Light Heavyweight throne and is eyeing Jimi Manuwa very closely. Jones wants a crack at the undefeated Manuwa by the end of the year. 'Misiek' Mysiala has had a run of bad luck, but is looking to get back into the rankings fast. Jimi has 2 hungry individuals chasing him at the moment and he is not even champion yet. Nothing is a forgone conclusion, so the outcome should be a very well balanced technical battle"
