Justin Burlinson Vs. Tommy ‘KO’ King
In a bout that sees a classic striker against submission match up, two of the rising stars of the division face off against each other with their unbeaten records on the line. Burlinson made an immeadiate impact at BAMMA Newcastle this past December when he swept aside fellow up and coming prospect Josh ‘Power’ Plant in the first round, with a rear naked choke in just under 3 minutes. Tommy ‘KO’ King brings a wealth of experience from a storied K1 career and scored his first MMA victory over James ‘Monkey Boy’ Reedman at BAMMA 31, when he defeated Reedman with a combination of punches that had the bout stopped in just over a minute.
Justin Burlinson (2-0) Placing a marker down in December when he submitted Josh Plant at BAMMA Newcastle in just under 3 minutes, the submission specialist has been making waves for a long while in the North East and everyone in BAMMA's Welterweight division has been taking notice. Despite the deep waters of the Welterweight division, Burlinson is already being picked for big things this year and defeating Tommy King will certainly place a huge marker down on March 9th.
Tommy ‘KO’ King (1-0) The renowned K1 fighter made the successful transition to MMA last year when he decimated James ‘Monkey Boy’ Reedman in the first round of his debut at BAMMA 31. With lethal power in his hands, he is more than a problem for anyone on the feet in the division. The Team King & Country Boy JuJitsu fighter has been expanding his ground game over the past few months, and will be aiming to surprise the crowds in attendance if the fight makes its way to the ground during the fight. King wants to build his record as the year begins and the reputation of Burlinson will certainly be a big one to take.
