It’s a battle of the former Lonsdale challengers as Lightweights Rick Selvarajah & Jai Herbert collide in a bout that is sure to be nothing short of total excitement. Selvarajah has recently put pen to paper on a contract extension with the promotion as a marker of his intentions to head to the top of the Lightweight division. However, Herbert will provide a serious threat to those hopes with his no nonsense striking style backing up his own ambitions.

"BAMMA is putting on another huge card in Midlands!! So i will be looking to make a huge statement in front of my home crowd. Coming off a disappointing loss and a few set backs, I'm looking to remind everyone that one bad night doesnt mean im not the best fighter in the division and May 12th I'll make sure I earn my shot at the title... Lonsdale or World." - Jai Herbert

"I am excited to be working with BAMMA once again - the biggest stage in European MMA. I have been training and working on my skills non stop and can't wait to put on a show at BAMMA 29. For anyone that may have forgotten, May 12th will be a reminder." - Rick Selvarajah

Additional Information

Rick Selvarajah (8-2) extends his contract with the promotion as he signed the bout agreement to take on Herbert at BAMMA 29. Selvarajah’s last outing was a victory over Ollie Boyne at BAMMA 25 via 1st round submission, with his current goal to get another shot at the Lonsdale Lightweight title. The Premier MMA fighter out of Harrow, Middlesex, will once more make his way down the BAMMA ramp on May 12th to continue his pursuit of the title.

Jai Herbert (4-1) The Wolfpack MMA standout from Wolverhampton, will be bringing the hometown advantage as he takes on Selvarajah at BAMMA 29. With his fast and powerful striking base, Herbert will be out to prove that his shock KO against Rhys ‘Skeletor’ McKee at BAMMA 27 in Dublin was just a bad day at the office and not something that will be happening again. With his team mate Dan Cassell now joining Herbert as a BAMMA signed fighter, Herbert is out for a measure of redemption and Selvarajah is first on his list.
