Alex Montagnani brings a professional record of 5-1-1 that includes 4 first round finishes and none finished past the 2nd round. 4 of his conquests have come via TKO (punches) and one via KO (knees). Montagnani was brought up in martial arts from the age of 4, by a father who held a 3rd Dan in Judo and Aikido, and 12 years Amateur boxing experience. Alex trained in Judo to the age of 10, but in his teens was more attracted by football, rugby and athletics. Rediscovering Judo at the age of 17, he attained his black belt within one year before moving into Brazilian Jiu jitsu. Now fighting out of New Wave Academy in South London, the 25 year old is a former Fury Welterweight champion.
Nathan Jones AKA Mr. Bag N Tag steps into the BAMMA cage with a record of 4-1 and all victories via submission to chokes in the 1st round Fighting out of the Combat Company in Richmond, the 26 old has been training in MMA since 2010 with no prior experience in combat sports. Having overcome a number of personal challenges, including a bilateral pulmonary embolism in 2009, Jones has been forced to hone mental strength and to reshape his life to make health a priority. Within three years of discovering MMA, Jones has earned the accolades, Bronze Medallist in Ground Control U91Kg, WKA Amateur British MMA Champion U88Kg and Ring Masters Finalist U85kg. Jones also earned the Fury Welterweight title after Montagnani vacated it in 2013, which leaves a question hanging set to be answered with this fight.
