Two fighters returning to the promotion after a short absence face off against each other on May 12th and both will be aiming to make an impression. Jay ‘Red Bull’ Butler is out to erase memories of his BAMMA 23 debut and make it a very long night for Chris Miah. Miah has signed with the promotion on a multifight deal that will mark his first appearance since BAMMA 20. Now moving up to Bantamweight, the Birmingham based Miah intends to put down a marker to the whole division that nobody is safe in his march to the title.

Mindagus Gerve recently put pen to paper with the promotion and now makes his debut against Wolverhampton based Luke ‘Nuke’ Morton. The Lithuanian born Gerve is currently based in Belfast and is all set to build on the winning start to his pro career. Morton however, will be coming for a hometown win on the biggest stage that he has fought on thus far in his career. Heavy leather will be thrown as these up and coming Heavyweights clash at the Genting Arena on May 12th.

Pelu Adetola makes a return to BAMMA once more as he faces off against UTC Birmingham’s Nathias Frederick in a Middleweight collision that could have ramifications within the division moving forward. ‘The Nigerian Diamond’ is always a tough and difficult opponent to face, as Fredericks joins his other UTC teammates Yannick Bahati and Fabian Edwards on what is already shaping up to be one of the fightcards of the year.
