Efrain Escudero has been forced to pull out of his bout against Tim Radcliffe this weekend at BAMMA 7 due to visa issues, according to MMA Weekly. Escudero says that while he's off this card, he's looking to fight somewhere else as soon as possible because he's already got a full training camp in.
Nate Marquardt will reportedly make his return to MMA action when he debuts at BAMMA 8 this coming December, according to MMA Weekly. "The Great" will also be making his return to the welterweight division, as he is resolved to compete at 170-pounds. No opponent has been determined just yet but maybe you matchmaker Maniacs can come up with someone for him. Any ideas?
Paul Daley has confirmed on his Facebook page (via The Fight Lounge) that he will return to action overseas at BAMMA 7 on Sept. 10 in Birmingham, England. "People of Nottingham, My next fight BAMMA 7, Sept 10th in Birmingham. The fight was on, off, on, off…and now it’s on!" No word yet on a possible opponent but we'll pass that along just as soon as it becomes available.
