(July 25th.12) Europe’s leading Mixed Martial Arts promotion, BAMMA, is proud to announce a Lightweight bout between Curt Warburton and Lee Wieczorek to the BAMMA 10 card at London Wembley on 15th September.  The event is to be live televised on 5*, with the highlights to be broadcast on Channel 5.

Renowned Wolfslair fighter and UFC veteran, Curt Warburton has clocked up an array of notable wins on his 10-3-0 record, most famously against current UK TUF coach, Ross Pearson.

The Lightweight is poised for a dangerous challenge in Lee Wieczorek who comes with 11 wins out of 14 fights, and the UWC title to his name. With wins by KO, TKO and submissions, and with a reputation for both stopping fights and for winning on the distance, Wieczorek is set to be a threat wherever the match goes.

Wieczorek said, “Curt is a great fighter, so I expect nothing less than a war against him. I think it’s going to be a great fight and a true MMA fight, as it could take place on the feet, in the clinch or on the ground.”

Alex Burzotta, manager of Wieczorek, added: “Both Lee and I are very excited at the opportunity given to Lee by BAMMA. Lee is coming off 5 straight wins and has every intention to making it 6.”

Curt Warburton said: “"It's great to be back on a BAMMA event. The promotion is doing big things and the recent deal with Channel 5 and 5* is great for UK MMA. Lee will be a tough opponent, but I will do what I need to do in order to win this fight and hopefully challenge for the Lightweight title in the near future."

BAMMA’s Head of Talent Relations, Jude Samuel, said: “I am really fired up for this fight. We’re looking at two top class athletes who have defended their names against some of the best domestic, and indeed top world, talent. Warburton has the more established name, as a UFC vet, but Wieczorek brings the skills and experience to really push him to the edge. This fight really could go anywhere, but fans can expect to sit white-knuckled and at the edge of their seats as this tense, dynamic and unpredictable battle unfolds.”
