Andy 'Lion Paw' De-Vent holds a 10-8-0 professional MMA record, scored against solid competition since 2010. The 35 year old is now on a 4 fight winning streak and is undefeated at Middleweight (7-0-0). De-Vent's last outing earned him a first round TKO victory over Andrew Punshon and the Pro British Middleweight title at Made 4 the Cage. Another recent victory came against De-Vent's long time nemesis, Avi Jack, in a rematch rectifying an earlier career loss. Originally coming from a Thai boxing background, De-Vent now trains at his own Lions Paw MMA in Manchester. 40% of De-Vent's wins have been attained by KO/ TKO and 40% via Submission. De-Vent is known for his heavy hands and his refusal to back down.
BAMMA is also proud to announce that Andy De-Vent has signed exclusively to BAMMA for a four fight deal.
Harry ‘Mad Mac’ McLeman holds a professional record of 6-2-0, following his latest performance against Matt Howard at BAMMA 14 in which he won on the judges' score cards. The Plymouth fighter first fought at BAMMA fresh off a memorable first round victory over Sam Mensah via Rear Naked Choke: Stepping in as a late Catchweight replacement for Scott Askham at BAMMA 12, the debut was to bring his first career loss. BAMMA 13 saw McLeman return to form as he clinched a Guillotine victory over Team Rough House’s Matt Hallam, which led to his exclusive signing with the promotion ahead of BAMMA 14. McLeman comes from an army boxing background and is competitive on the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu circuit. He trains out of Danny MacMillan's MacMillan Martial Arts Academy.
