"BAMMA 30 is the coming out party for the flyweight and middleweights shining new stars. Both Ryan Curtis and Fabian Edwards have taken it upon themselves to change their own destiny. They don’t have easy paths, however they have already got the eyes of the world upon them and appear to be taking it in their stride. Ryan has the experienced Daniel Barez, who has taken out another up and coming young gun in Jamie Powell on his way to BAMMA 30, so he will understand the scale of the challenge that awaits him." - Jude Samuel BAMMA Matchmaker
